    A friend of mine asked me to look for the newest firmware for his flashcart.

    It just looks like R4 but it says Z card on its face. I have no idea what this card is and cannot get any information about this one.

    I have tried official R4 firmware, Wood, EZflash, and TT. None of them works. Can anyone tell me what is this card and where I can get its firmware?

    Wait, does it show that there is no MicroSD card regardless of what kernel you try?

    It looks like that cart has been through the wash, and flash carts aren't exactly DS carts in terms of their durability. If it isn't recognizing the MicroSD card period, chances are that the cart is useless as can be anyways. Being a white cart like that, I can only guess of a few carts that it could be, and you've tried the bulk of them when it comes to the kernel.

    Oh I'm really sorry for making confusion here. Actually there was no firmware in it when I took the picture above.

    This is what happens when I put firmwares like wood. I think it does work but just need right firmware.

    I'm going to take a wild guess in saying this is a clone of another cart. You could open the cart open and post a picture, someone may be able to identify the card. That's the only suggestion I can make, I have never heard of the Z card.

    This. I scavenged for info best I could, but this must be one obscure clone. A picture of the insides would likely to wonders. There are people around here that are good at telling flash carts apart by their insides alone.

    then I need to doubt
    > I have tried official R4 firmware, Wood, EZflash, and TT. None of them works.

    anyway I suppose it is like U2DS, which was also DSTT clone.

    Many people mistake YSmenu for the TTDS firmware.

    Hehe. Sorry about that. I actually tried TT firmware that was found in this forum. I think it is custom made newest version or whatever so that the clone doesn't work with it.

    I downloaed official firmaware and it works well. Thank you btw!
