Hacking Bricked my 3in1. ;*(


May 28, 2010
It's been a while since I tinkered with GBA games so I decided to replay all the Golden Sun series (1 to 3). However, when I tried to flash the game(golden Sun 1) to NOR via GBA Exploader, loading stopped at 3% and it stayed there for 30 minutes before I powered down the DS lite.

Note that I've already played the same Golden Sun using the same GBA exploader a few months ago in NOR mode so that would not have been the culprit.

So I tried again but GBA exploader just copied the game to NOR w/o erasing it first(I have no idea why this happened though). Then the game just wont run after the Nintedo Logo but the DSlite can still recognize the game as a gba cart.

Now I tried to erase the NOR via my daughter's Acekard(I'm using SCDS2) and it erased it fine. However the DS won't recognize the cart anymore. Same with GBAexploader.

Any idea on how to fix this?


BTW, my battery would likely be drained since the last time I played, I had trouble saving.
