    Okay, so I recently bought a DSTWO Plus.
    But, once I put a game (A Smash Homebrew Clone) on the flashcart's SD Card, it just stopped working.
    Before it 'booted' fine. (As in initializing and pretending to be a different game)
    I had assumed that this meant it was not ready yet. So I waited half an hour and still.
    So, I formatted my SD and put the OS on it again. No dice.
    (My firmware is also too new for the cart, I have 11.0.0-33U. So it just says an error occurred when trying to run it)
    Did I kill it?

    I already have DSTWO PLUS EOS and the Gateway 3DS Plugin on the SDCard.
    Just to make sure, what do I format the SD Card as? FAT? FAT32? exFAT? NTFS?

    Fat32, maybe format it with this http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/index.htm?guiformat.htm
    also, try another SD card, and clean the contacts on the SD card and DSTWO

    Does alcohol still work to clean electronic contacts?
    Also is the Windows File Manager Format dialog good (or the Command Prompt FORMAT command) fine, or do I have to use that or the "SDFormatter" program?

    My supercard dstwo is pretty beat up and gives me hell all the time if I try to start it, I recently used ApacheThunders Twl-slot1 launcher to increase it's boot chances by a hundred times but still occasionally gives me errors but oh well I can live with it.

    Well that's a sticky situation and wish you luck in your endeavors. Maybe try looking for a cheap DS to see if works in that?

    I heard that ONDS/DSi/DSL fixes the original DSTWO, not the DSTWO Plus (prty much just a DSTWO with a gateway 3DS simulator)
    but i'll try it
    (I have weird abreviations. ONDS = Original DS; DSL = DS Lite)
