@bl_ackrain , thank you for your awesome contribution, yet again

With your permission (although it was just kind of asked) I hereby christen your loader the “Kraken” (*), in honour of the mythical sea monster and to make it uniquely identifiable

So people, if you want to run the latest and greatest software on your Pokitto, use the Xploritto file browser and Kraken loader, both by @bl_ackrain

(*) pending approval by author

Edit: was approved

I agree and I would suggest to convert all the bins to pops and to add those to the gamedisk
