    Hello!

    I saw in gbatemp that you can install B9S on a 3DS with an action replay card! But I don't have any of those...
    Lucky for me, my friend has an action replay! But obviously he doesn't have the PC cable, which is required for flashing the card and using it on B9S stuff!

    Is there any similar cable that works with the action replay? (Because, you know, action replay is obscure and who would ever sell action replay cables?!

    Please let me know if there are any cables that will match the action replay port!

    Thanks!

    If it is an Actionreplay DS 1st gen you can solder a micro usb connector to the pcb and use a normal micro usb cable with it.
    The problem with the 1st gen ARDS are the drivers. They only work with Windows XP with old hardware as running it in a VM on current PCs didn't work.
    I can post a picture where each color goes when soldering 1st gen ARDS, I don't know if it is the same pinout on the later gens.

    No, it's an Action Replay DSi (the version with the blue cart)
    Is it possible to use like a mini usb C or something?

    You need the proper cord for your AR. You are going to have to actually spend some money to hack your system.

    Or someone finally bans him
    It's my nature to help people and I often help by telling what they need to hear, not what they want to hear. That is how the Lilith do.

    OK now my PC DOES recognize it, but the code manager doesn't!
    Also, whenever I boot the Action replay on my DSi, it shows the datel logo and then a happy white screen
