Using the latest libnds all you need to do is call 1 function:


or simply return from your main function.

If your using an argv supported launcher, like the homebrew menu, your app will exit and return to the launcher app, otherwise it resets the DS.

I'm looking for similar function to reboot the NDS file currently loaded.

Calling exit(int) or returning from main switches off the DS / quits no$gba.
I figured swiSoftReset() was the function I was looking for, but it does nothing on no$gba
and gives me a pair of black screens on hardware.

Any ideas?

Read Steven's post again then either use hbmenu or go moan at your card manufacturer.
