    Hi.
    I have a Stargate 3ds and the DS Menu won't work, no matter what i do with it.
    My 3ds has custom CFW (with Godmode9) and it's on version 11.6.0-39U.
    Any 3ds game works just fine, but when i change to the DS Mode, the DS Menu won't work.
    Here's a video of what happens:



    I followed the method on the Stargate 3ds official website (format in FAT32 mode, downloaded the DS Menu files and put it in the root of my SD card)
    I have tried with two different types of SD cards, one SanDisk 8gb category 4 and one SanDisk Ultra 32gb category 10 and both of them had the same problem.

    Please help :C​

    could just be a bug in their DS menu code. Have you tried a previous version, if there is one.

    What this tells you is your stargate cannot work properly with luma - it probably never will knowing this flashcard team.
    You will have to launch firmlaunch_clean every time you want to use stargate ds.

    Well, better working this way than never working in the first place!
    Just out of curiosity: What happens if i choose the option "Install FIRM" instead of "Boot FIRM" on the chainloader?

    There is a fair chance it would just delete B9S because, well, B9S is a FIRM

    Internet.
    You could try to avoid that incompatibility problem installing Fastboot3DS and Rei-Six as an alternate CFW.

    Do people still use carts for their games? Even with custom firmwares already out?

    Here it is. For addin' other CFW besides Luma3DS, follow the same steps you did for Luma but in a secondary slot, in I recommend Rei-Six, is far better that CakesFW (the other CFW supported by FB3D).
