Quotes from users over at gbatemp.net:

- Only NDSTokyoTrim should ever be used in my opinion.
– just use the best trimmer, “NDStokyotrimmer” it’s the obvious best & fastest trimmer, NEVER had a single problem with it.
- The best rom-trimmer out there for the NDS is without doubt NDSTokyoTrim

    Still violates DEP and will not run on systems with it enabled for normal programs until it is manually added to the whitelist.

    v2.5 beta breaks some roms after trimming. Here’s one of them:
    (tested on AK2i w/ AKAIO 1.8.6a)

    Emily the Strange – Strangerous (E) – 64.0 MB/67,108,864 bytes

    After trimming (v2.18) – 53.6 MB/56,250,368 bytes = working
    After trimming (v2.5 beta) – 52.5 MB/55,133,320 bytes = not working/white screens

    Pokémon – White Version (USA) & Pokémon – Black Version (USA) don’t work with 2.5 beta, but work with 2.18

    Do you know if this issue has been fixed with the new Beta as I’m reluctant to trim with anything but 2.18.

    I get an “access is denied” error when I hit the Trim button. I’m using 2.5 Beta 2 (also tried 2.18) on Windows 7 x64

    No word for a week? Not good for a useful piece of software, that is possibly the most used pc app for the DS. Not liking this, not at all. Been using this since I got my first Slot-1, however long ago it was.

    I can’t reproduce the error. What’s your UAC level?

    Windows 7 x64, Default UAC – “Notify me only when programs try to make changes to my computer” – “Don’t notify me when I make changes to Windows settings”

    Worked it out, I had to add it to Win7 DEP exceptions o.O I had forgotten I had it enabled for something, and forgot that TokyoTrim needed DEP disabled. Sorry for the trouble, guess I haven’t had a good tech week.

    I can’t trim some of the GBA roms (example: Mother 3 (Japan)). I used v2.5 of NDSTokyoTrim.
