The below videos show you how to get NES/SNES emulators to work on the Nintendo DS. However, one review from a user’s (Tim K) experience was: “The emulators work good, but I’ve been finding it hard to download any decent ROMs. The games always play a little funky.”


You can also customize your Nintendo DS in many ways with the R4, such as add wallpapers, music, movies, connect to wifi, VoIP, and much more. Some info about VoIP can be found at these sites: rjsip Blog & The VoIP Service Blog.
