    Would it be possible to use a DSI action replay to act as a "pass me" for blocked DS flashcarts?(acekard 2i?) I'm thinking hypothetically it should work. Can anyone test this idea for me who has one? If it does work it's a cheap alternative to buying a new flashcard(downgrade, install a cfw and install the flashcard unblocker).
    Right now you can get a DSI action replay on ebay for less then 10.00 usd, that's way cheaper and safer(and normally much faster!) then buying a new card from real hot stuff.
    Does anyone see a problem with my logic, will it work?

    I tried that with an Acekard 2i many years ago and it didn't work. I'd wonder if you could run a homebrew and access the cart slot to properly boot whatever is in it.

    I tried this a while back and managed to get a SuperCard DSOne working on my 3DS ^^ I can't vouch for anything recent, mind.

    Looks kinda suspect when it says 5.1.0 in the title but the video shows it's clearly 4.5.0 :P

    That's great news, I was afraid that the AR-DSI I just ordered off ebay would be useless.

    You couldn't just purchase it from a reseller?

    Yeah, you wasted money (for your purposes). It will refuse to do anything or break the AR and/or flash cart.

    Jesus what in gods name is wrong with you people, how come anytime you post anything on these forums somebody tells you your stupid for trying.. you really need to learn how to communicate with other people, acting this way serves no one and will only lead to you being alone.

    It doesn't work. I tried it myself multiple times. It only boots cards that work on that firmware.

    What are you talking about? I know how flash carts and the AR cart work on a technical level and was telling them it wouldn't work. There was no dickwaving at all.
