Installing Moonshell 2.10 on your CycloDS Evolution



If you are using firmware v1.54 Stable, or below, use these instructions
We recommend upgrading to a more recent firmware, and then using the instructions found further down on this page.

Firmware v1.55 Beta 3, and above (including latest: 2.30)

  1. REMOVE any other version of Moonshell from your flash cart before continuing.
  2. Download app:moonshell-2-10 to your Windows desktop
  3. Double-click on the file to extract the contents to your computer
  4. Open the folder that was created (it will be called "201002161705_moonshell210stable") and then:
    • Double-click on setup.exe to run it
    • If you are asked to choose a language, make your choice and click the button to continue(note: this will not affect which language Moonshell 2 will be in once Moonshell 2 is on your micro sd)
    • Click on the button titled "Installed to <drive>" if the drive is one your microSD card is using (otherwise select the right one from the combo box first)
    • Click on the button titled "Install"
    • When you get a message saying that installation has completed, click "OK"
    • Open the CycloDS folder on your microSD card and edit config.xml using Notepad
    • Change the moonshellPath setting so that it looks like this: <moonshellPath>/moonshl2/moonshl2.nds</moonshellPath> if it already looks that there is no need for you to change it
    • Copy moonshl2.nds to the moonshl2 folder
    • Copy moonshl2_DirectBoot.nds to the moonshl2 folder
    • Copy moonshl2_AltLoader_DKPr27.nds to the moonshl2 folder
  5. Safely remove your microSD card from the computer and plug it into your CycloDS, then push your CycloDS Evolution into slot 1 of the Nintendo DS
  6. Turn on the DS and boot the CycloDS from the top-most button on the screen
  7. Moonshell 2 should launch from the Media button (centre) when you touch it with the stylus and you should be able to choose the language you want Moonshell 2 to be in

Sorry, but I've just disabled the former commenting system, and opened up the new one to anonymous users. Am posting the reply here instead because of that…

I have ebooks loaded as .txt file. Everything works fine, but after 10 mins or so of reading, my ds freezes up. Is there anything to fix that?

The only thing I would suggest is to try reformatting your microSD card. You can use the Panasonic formatter for that.

Make sure you back up all of your files first though, as reformatting will erase everything on the microSD card.

Hi leiger, if you put the 3 *.nds files on /moonshl2 folder you should not edit <moonshellPath> tag because you'll get and error saying that MoonShell is not found it. So <moonshellPath>/moonshl2/moonshl2.nds</moonshellPath> is the right line.

Best regards!

Thanks Anonymous! I had a feeling this tutorial might be out of date.

I'll put it on my todo list to fix :)

Yep, as Gariscus said @alexander.

Open up MicroSD card on computer, open the "CycloDS" directory (folder), and you should see config.xml there.

If you accidentally delete it or make some other change that needs to be reverted, deleting the CycloDS folder and everything in it will revert you back to default settings (when you start CycloDS again it'll re-create the folder and files). You would need to re-install skins and cheat packs though.

.. Uh, pretty sure Moonshell's not meant to open .nds files.

IIRC, it glitches.

Moonshell's feature to launch NDS files doesn't work on the Evolution or iEvolution because Team Cyclops hasn't added support for this feature. It's the same reason "Coverflow" apps don't work either.

Sorry, can you explain what you mean?

Where is this file, are you trying to open it from the computer or DS, and what error message do you see (if any)?
