    <!--sizeo:3--><span style="font-size:12pt;line-height:100%"><!--/sizeo--><b>Setting Up & Using</b><!--sizec--></span><!--/sizec-->

    <b>Part 1 Installing:</b>

    Simply Drag and Drop the firmware into the root of your microSD card. The firmware can be downloaded <a href="http://eng.supercard.sc/download.htm" target="_blank">here</a> and extract.

    When I got my DSONEi it couldn't be read so after few minutes I figured its blank and has no fireware. You must download the fireware and I got latest fireware which is for DSi's which can be found <a href="http://filetrip.net/f6196-Supercard-DSOnei-Firmware-1-1.html" target="_blank">here</a>. You extract and drag and drop the file to the root of your microSD card. Then you put microSD card into DSONEi and then put that into the Firmware Writer. You just simply put that into your usb port in your computer then wait 8 minutes or more depending on what type of computer you use. If it does not flash green and flashes red repeat the step until it does. When flashing it will blink red repeatedly. Once it is green you need to take it out and there you have it your working DSONEi. Now this is simple and easy but kind of difficult and complicated so be careful because you may brick your flashcart if you do it wrong.

    <b>Part 2 Getting ROMS, Homebrew, etc:</b>

    When installing be sure to back up your .savs for your games incase the microSD card already has roms because it will remove and delete your .savs if so. You can now make a NDS folder and get roms for your flashcart. It is simple and easy to use if you are just going to use it for games but for movies and music it should play them well but I recommend moonshell just to be safe.

    For skins and homebrew you can get them <a href="http://filetrip.net" target="_blank">here</a>.

    <b>Part 3 EOS:</b>

    *UPDATE*
    It took me a week to find out about the EOS. I was annoyed at the fact I wasted a week thinking this flashcart sucked and all so using the new EOS made me have a new opinion overall. It loads faster. More compatible. More features. etc. I enjoyed it and if you want a copy simply navigate through supercard's official website or check out <a href="http://http//:filetrip.net" target="_blank">http//:filetrip.net</a>. You can find F.A.Q's and etc. there. This review is somewhat old so I only c/p'd it over. Tell me what you think.

    <!--sizeo:3--><span style="font-size:12pt;line-height:100%"><!--/sizeo--><b>Performance</b><!--sizec--></span><!--/sizec-->

    As stated in the Features lists, the ROM compatibility is near 100%. Most of the times, games can already be played on a SuperCard before any other card, before even any kind of patch is released. This is because of the way you can run games, in clean or in patch mode, and because of the save size you can set for the games.

    <!--sizeo:3--><span style="font-size:12pt;line-height:100%"><!--/sizeo--><b>Additional Features</b><!--sizec--></span><!--/sizec-->

    <b>Cheats</b>

    When getting into ROMS you press X for options. There is Change Mulitsv and SetPatch. You select SetPatch and enable cheats. When loading the ROM you will see the list before the game and you will select which ones to activate and then your ROM will load.

    <b>Skins</b>

    You can get skins <a href="http://filetrip.net/c120-Supercard-DS-ONE-skins.html" target="_blank">here</a>. You simply put them in the skins folder of your sc folder.

    <img src="http://filetrip.net/i/9955-teaser%202.png" border="0" class="linked-image" />

    <b>Micro SDHC Support</b>

    Supports SDHC well and has no problems

    <b>Soft Reset</b>

    Supports Reset and RTS as do other current DSi carts.

    <b>DLDI Support</b>

    Provides automatic patching. Not much manuel modification is needed.

    <b>Homebrew</b>

    Not totally user friendly but it should be able to play homebrew well. I tried a few so no complaints but I am not a homebrew fanatic so I cannot go into what I know nothing about.

    Completely redesigned the GUI can bring you a new beautiful interface. And system menus will also give you more friendly user experience, touch operation, saves time and effort! It increased RTS slots up to 4 individual slots. Additional, added the 3D data intelligent detection function, to improve the compatibility of 3D games so that it can be more stable. Moreover, also fast read & write speed as always. Integrated the hotkey, then there is only one hotkey you need to remember. You can call out the in-game menu to use the functions like RTS/RTG/Cheat and so on. It's easy to remember and easy to use! Changed the slow motion function from Cheat code method to hardware method. Better stability and compatibility. With the beautiful and small font so that could display more on the screen. In addition, supports for direct reading .Txt text file, more convenient to use. Integrated auto-patch database, you can play new games at the first time as soon as possible. And there is another official patch database, give you the double insurance. Exclusive Cheat Databse only unique to Supercard Series and to my knowledge needs self manuel update when getting cheats for current ROMS.

    <!--sizeo:3--><span style="font-size:12pt;line-height:100%"><!--/sizeo--><b>Conclusion</b><!--sizec--></span><!--/sizec-->

    The DSONEi is unique and good I admit but it threw me off in some areas. I understand why it does what it does but it should have found a better way to load ROMS and being more compatible that way because it loads slow but thats to ensure the ROM doesn't get any problems. The flashcart has its own exclusive cheat engine so it will not support any other cheat database such as usrcheat.dat. This is a turn off for me because I can't get frequent updates and don't have time to get cheats myself which can take minutes or hour or so. This flashcart is complex and somewhat easy to use and if your not into cheating and into compatibility and ensured then this is for you. I thank kickgaming for providing me this so I could review it and thank them for having great prices and fast shipping because they are one of best places to get cheap deals on DSONEi's. Also recommend simplymods because each sponsor offers the best prices in the market for the greatest flashcarts available.

    Pros:
    +DSi compatible
    +100% ROM Compatibility
    +EOS
    +Download Play is near perfect
    +Completely Drag & Drop nothing else needed except for Firmware Flashing
    +Supports Clean ROMs
    +auto-DLDI Patching
    +microSD SDHC Support
    +Easy navigation GUI
    +Fits Perfect in DS/DSL/DSi/DSiLL
    +Strong Build
    +Comes with microSD card reader
    +Well packaged

    Cons:
    -Loads Slow
    -Less frequent updates
    -Can have troubleshooting first time
    -Has some things it doesn't need
    -Outdated
    -OS

    No troubleshooting involved if you take a look at my FAQ. Also, the longer parts of text are essentially the info about the DSONEi/EOS that are on the SC site.

    Thanks. Like I said the review is old when OS was available so I did not update it yet. I will though if requested but I just posted it as an example of my work. I believe I have done better if you want to see more.
