    I ordered some time ago a DSTT card (black original one), but I was sent this fake blue card instead. Delivery expenses for returning it were a bit expensive, so I kept it.
    It has been working fine, but apparently they made two different cards (http://nds-tti.com/productE.asp), one prepared for firmware 1.4 and the previous one, which is not.

    I have the older one, the "non 1.4" version. They now release different kernels for each card (http://nds-tti.com/downE.asp), so people who has the old one are stuck in kernel 1.18, which is out of date and incompatible with many games. I've tried to use kernels 1.19 and 1.20, but all I get is a black screen.

    Does anyone know if there is any unofficial kernel/firmware compatible (updated and preferably tested) with this fake card?

    In this blog entry there are pictures of the inners of the card (PCB), if that helps: http://nfo.blog85.fc2.com/?no=747

    This is an image of the working kernel, the "official" one (V1.18 from their website, http://nds-tti.com/). Notice that there're only 2 folders (TTMenu and Games) and one file (TTMenu.dat) in the root, folder "TTMenu" is just expanded. Maybe the files (size, date...) can give anyone any clue about what unofficial firmware could work.

    I don't know if it is. Can it be determined (by someone who understand about the matter) by seeing the PCB? There is a couple of pictures of the PCB here: http://nfo.blog85.fc2.com/?no=747

    Thanks for the links.
    Could that firmware damage the card somehow if I try it, or the worst thing I can get is a black screen, but no damage at all?

    That's not important if it's a fake or not, because the fake killer is disabled in this version, this mean you can use it on every DSTT/DSTTi and the fakes.

    If you are not using it in a DSi, you should be fine with the files listed above. Please read the changelog. Not all games are currently working.

    Sounds like you extracted it wrong. You must copy the contents of the english folder on your sd card, not only the english folder.

    The root of the SD had this:

    /Games
    /TTMenu
    TTMENU.DAT
    TTMENU.SYS

    And it doesn't work?
    edit: you could try YSMenu...
    Download THIS package and extract everything on your sd card, that's ysmenu with the latest fixes from pong and retro, then try it again.

    Yes, the files for my card work, in fact, they seem the same files except for "TTMENU.SYS" which is missing in the blue card firmware.
    But I was looking for a more updated (and compatible) firmware.
    Can YSMenu damage my card or NDS?

    No, ysmenu can't damage something, it's a global menu for ALL cards [IMG]

    I've just done that, and I get the same error: "Menu?"

    This is what I have in the root:

    The TTMENU.dat file is YSMenu. The TTDS loader is TTMENU.nds.

    I have the same card and I'm afraid the only solution so far are the "official" updates.

    Try renaming ttmenu.dat to R4i.TP (exactly the way I typed it).

    This is an image of the working kernel, the "official" one (V1.18 from their website, http://nds-tti.com/). Notice that there're only 2 folders (TTMenu and Games) and one file (TTMenu.dat) in the root, folder "TTMenu" is just expanded.

    Should I still try renaming that file?

    What if I just copy these three files inside the TTMenu folder of the working official kernel?:
    infolib.dat, savlib.dat and extinfo.dat (from the link lolzed and FIX94 posted)

    Could doing that damage anything?
