Pre-Installation!
Step1: Back-Up your micro-sd card!
Step2: Make a new folder on the root of the card called "Homebrew"
Step3: Put homebrew into the "Homebrew" folder.
Step4: Do the the following for what is suited to you to use with the below instructions.

Installation for Regular Users
Take the HWOS folder and put it on the root of your cart. Thats it. Make sure everything copies over though. Then navigate to it and boot "HW_OS2.nds" from inside the folder. If for some reason the updater fails or it no longer works, just use "RecoveryMode.nds" to update it again.

Installation for R4 Users
Do the same thing as you would for regular users, but this time copy the "bootme.nds" and "bootme.txt" to the root of the card and boot that.

Installation for R4 Users with autoboot OS feature
Do the same as you would for R4 users, but this time take the "_DS_MENU.DAT" and copy it to the root of the card. This will over ride your old one so make a back up.

Note we do not take responsibility for what happens to your flash cart or anything else related.
