    Hello, mates.

    I got this NDS with a TTDS cart on it.
    I've played for 2 days before it gave me some freezing issues.
    It freezes on boot in two blank screens, one black and one blank,
    a faded Nintendo's health screen, the loading screen of the cart.
    And, when I tried to upgrade to official files (kernel?) of the site, it also
    freezed when loading games.

    So, researching around I found that there is indeed some fake issues about
    this card. Running DsttFlashChecker it gives me "This is Broken" message.

    I put back the files that came with the card, and it loads the games, once I'm
    over all the freezing. (after some turn-ons & offs).

    I took a look into GBAtemp's TTDS FAQ here: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=140...t=0&start=0
    But I'm not convinced if this card is fake, and I'm a little afraid of applying "DSTT_FakeRecovery_v1.18_Beta".
    What are the odds? Might it stop the freezing? In the other hand, can it make my cart totaly unusable (eg. if it's
    genuine, I don't know...).

    Here are the pictures I took. Any help welcome. Thanks! =)

    So should I run that reflash tool? (DSTT_FakeRecovery_v1.18_Beta)
    Or can it make the situation even worse?

    But mine has this plastic MicroSD holder... :X

    Even if it's a real cart, the DSTT_FakeRecovery can be used?

    Indeed, friends, it seems the fake recovery tool worked just fine!
    So that says the card is a fake, but now it's working properly at least.

    Since samjef11 said that carts from CN and HK sites are not to be trusted, I
    got a little worried, because I ordered a "R4 SDHC 2.10T" from 0shippingzone
    (since some flashcart manufacturers mention that site). Can I trust this site?

    Theres another concern of mine. Since the cart is a fake, how do I get support
    to those new updates? I mean, e.g. those "Weekly infolib.dat updates": http://gbatemp.net/t164807-weekly-infolib-dat-updates can still be used to achieve better compatibility?

    Thanks for the help, mates.
