    Yesterday My ARDS went mad. When I try select code/go to cheat menu, I tried push green button at the screen, but it won't work. Does someone got that same problem, or knows someone how to fix it? [​IMG]

    I have one week old DS Lite, screen protectors, towered ARDS and codes for MKDS.

    you can fix if you have the ards ROM and a flshcart.

    run the rom via flashcart.
    when loaded, take out flashcart and insert your ards cart.
    use the pc program to update the ards.
    there your are. done. i did it twice XD

    By the way, the ARDS ROM have same problem like my real AR. Should the problem be at my screen protectors?

    Well, I think protectors "uncalibrated" (or something) my Lite touchscreen? I think that will be possible?

    I found this video that is very helpful for your situation. It even has that rom you all want. Just double click on the video to have it open in a new tab and read the description.

    in the trap
    Actually that guide does work, I remember when my ARDS was bricked and I managed to unbrick it and after I searched youtube to see if it was common and found that lol.

    Also, why isn't it working? The only reason I can think of is that it is the cart you are using. Some Ak2's freeze when taken out of the slot-1, M3 Reals turn the DS off, DSTT freezes (For me atleast), my R4 freezed though my EDGE cart did not (Thus the reason the dude in the video is using one). If it is your cart that is doing the freezing than it is best to buy a cheap EDGE cart (Or another cheap compatible cart) which can fix and is handy to have rather than buying a new ARDS.
