    So I just reformatted my 4GB SD card to try and hope that the new star wars game would work , but I was updating the latest firmware on my cyclo at the same time and I noticed that my cyclo is now running a bit slower when it boots up and is also taking a while to load up my games D:

    anyone know whats up?

    Latest firmware? Do you mean 1.41 or 1.5b4? Either way, I think it has more to do with your MicroSD, try formatting it.

    Well, I just updated my CycloDS with a 1.41 version of firmware..and I have no problems at all..I never actually tried to play new Star Wars..And I never experienced the thing you're describing..

    Maybe if you try to downgrade firmware, and see what happens, you'll see if it speeds up, you'll know that there is something wrong with the firmware upgrade..are you using some BETA or final version of the firmware?!

    Hmmmm....I'm just using the updated version...1.41, and I've been testing it a bit, and no slowdown..
    Are you sure it isn't because you have started the game for the first time, because it always boots game longer for the first time (so it can make a save file)..
    Second time you boot it, it should be quicker..

    If that's not the case, I'm not sure what is....try what I suggested, downgrade it and see if it'll speed up!

    How much stuff is in your MicroSD? If it's almost full then the games and load times do tend to get slower.

    The Cyclo just will not play that game at the moment, we will need an update before it'll happen.
    On the slowdown thing I have had no slow down at all since my udate to 1.5B4..
    Hope it helps...

    New firmware is out 1.5 version, you should try it and see if it'll fix your slow-downs problem!!

    And I have a question......
    I never tried it, but I'm interested, if I have filled microSD (not full, but almost full)..Is it possible that I update firmware without removing everything from the microSD, and is that safe to do if it's possible..

    Every time I updated firmware so far, I removed everything from my microSD, only copied update, updated CycloDS, and then copied everything to my microSD..but it's a bit annoying to do it with 3.5 GB of games..
    So I'm interested if anyone updated firmware with their microSD cart filled?!

    Personally, I use a spare microSD to update, then I place the new CycloDS folder into the normal microSD and add my skins and the latest cheats back to it.

    But then, I always have been told I do things the hard way.
