    Where'd you get it? And for that matter, what happened to the front of the case?

    Does it work with R4 Wood, if you can get it to work without any problems from the lack of the faceplate

    What icon/description shows up when inserted in a DS?
    Does is work on DSi?
    What does the error screen look like if you boot it up without an SD card/with an SD card with no menu on it?

    Ultra uses green PCB, but it's not an Ultra. I don't think that it's an Acekard-style card.

    Looks like a DSTT-style R4 card.

    I'd try the popular DSTT-style R4 clones first (R4i-SDHC.com).

    Edit: it's 100% not an Acekard. It has a small hole in the PCB just like DSTT.

    I think almost all 1.4.1 cards use Danny Phantom.

    The only cards I know that use different icons: DSTwo & iPlayer (Fish Tycoon) & iEdge (Some japanese game) .

    Edit: That was crap. Sorry.

    Most DSTT cards 1.4 --> Star Wars
    Acekards 1.4 --> Danny Phantom

    If it's Dsi compatibly, then we could narrow it down from there...too bad there are too many of those as well >.<
    Did it come with any software?

    What DSi Firmware?
    Try using RetroGameFans R4 Clones Firmware but rename YSmenu.nds to _DS_Menu.dat

    Well based on the DSi & the Danny Phantom icon - I did a search of GBATemp

    Posts that come up with 'Danny Phantom' icons containf the following cards
    • Acekard2i
    • M3i0
    • r4i
    • r4i gold
    Now the earlier Acekard 2i and M3i0 - IIRC DON'T have a screwhole in the middle (well that's what it looks like to me) so I would take a guess it's either a R4i or R4i Gold

    Danny phantom = DSi 1.4 compatible

    The logo at start, it like a lot of other R4i Clones/Fakes = "menu?" (Like DSTT)

    But nothing work!!!

    So let's get all the facts together

    > You've got a card without a front cover/sticker
    > It's DSi 1.4 compatible - 'cos it shows the Danny Phantom logo
    > It's got (what looks like) a screwhole in the middle of the circuit board
    > When you try to start it up (without a memorycard) you get
    [​IMG]

    So in other words it seems we're looking for a R4 clone that's based on a DSTT(i)
    Well although this picture may be out of date it seems as though the following cards are clones of the DSTTi
    • R4i SDHC (Red Box) (not sure if THIS is the right address, it's the only one I can find with a 'red box')
      R4i Gold (or try the Wood R4 firmware)
      M3i Upgrade
      M3i SDHC (possibly)
    Alternatively you're gonna have to work your way through http://www.linfoxdomain.com list to hopefully find one that works

    EDIT: Looking through the list I see that the 'R4i Upgrade' and the 'R4x' are also possible clones of the DSTT

    EDIT #2: Just found this article about fake iEdge cards which seems to match what you've got

    The EDGEi have absolutely not the same hardware at all!

    For me, this is like a R4i-SDHC revision XXX

    Well considering I don't know what the iEdge hardware actually looks like Ihave to take your word on that...

    I guess you'll have to go through all those firmwares on http://www.linfoxdomain.com/nintendo/ds/ then until you find one that works ('cos I can't seem to find a 'r4i-sdhc revision' on Google - maybe you have better luck)
