The Devkit System Menu is the System Menu preinstalled on RVT-R Readers and other development units, and the System Menu used in the factory for retail units. Remnants of the Devkit System Menu also exist in the retail System Menu.

Devkit Boot Program

The Devkit Boot Program is responsible for loading discs on boot; it uses OSReport for its UI, and does not take any controller input besides to access the main menu.

While the main menu is referred to as "Devkit System Menu" and appears to be distinct from the Devkit Boot Program, both are in the same binary in the same title.


Savefiles are directly copied to the SD card when backing them up by creating a directory with the ASCII title ID with the files (not through a backup WAD), and adding a DEVKITMENU.SAVE file with NAND metadata.
