    While reading the "other" forum about a custom firmware for the Acekard, I found a link to one guy's site that is building out an interesting custom firmware and happened to notice a couple of posts related to the SCDS1 SDHC. Unofrtunately they were all in Korean, but using google translate it appears that he has hacked the DSTT shell to run on the SCDS1 SDHC.

    Had anyone heard of this before? It seems int he first post that he says that the hardware of the DSTT and the SCDS1 SDHC are virtually identical, and that the DSTT shell on the SCDS1 boot faster, loads ROMs/apps faster, still supports realtime saves, but none of the other SCDS1 SDHC features. I couldn't figure out whether or not it supports the other features of the DSTT like the cheat engine, etc.

    Cool.

    Mind I'm surprised this has happened before now since the majority of carts are made from exactly the same components/chips afaik.

    Hopefully someone will do something for the M3-real and Ds-x to stop them being super sucky ;P

    I'm korean, so I can translate it...

    They've created a kernal that works in the Supercard that makes it function like a DSTT.

    The major diffs that was explained in the bottom:

    The DSTT Supecard
    Pros-
    - Much faster menu
    - Loads games much faster
    - Different save files
    - Other benifits from DSTT

    Cons-
    - Real times save does not work.
    - Most of the features that made Supercard so popular is disabled.

    Also, there were some serious problems and issues with the touch screen when the supercard was activated, so the download link has been deleted....

    Ah...that sucks. Kinda figured RTS, RTG, and soft resettable homebrew wouldn't work since the DSTT doesn't have it.

    Still pretty cool though. If this dude could get the features working that I mentioned, then I would definitely switch to this hacked firmware. Actually, the Supercard Team just needs to speed up their loader, or totally redo or whatever. It's almost as slow as the G6Real/M3 Real loader(maybe not that slow, but pretty close).

    What do you mean by "when the supercard was activated"?

    I am thinking of trying this hacked kernel for Supercard SDHC because I am angered by its incompatibility(freezing on all games) with SanDisk 8GB MicroSDHC Class 4 (FAT 32, 64KB cluster size).

    Is it safe to try?

    SCDS1 loader isn't that bad on a Class 6 SDHC. Gets rid of most of the lag.

    Sandisk's memorycards are known to suck pretty damn well.

    Seeing that no one talked about this yet... Bliss on 31 Jan. released a bootselector for DSTT hacked firmware, or SCDS One standard:

    Here's the full story:
    You can grab it here.

    Dunno if you also need this (the DSTT hacked menu for SCDS One).

    I have been able to run DSTT menu on my Supercard SDHC, anyone know how I can turn the menu into English? Currently it is in KOR version.

    -Update

    Everything is now in English. [​IMG]

    If anyone, who also wants to try out DSTT menu on Supercard SDHC, let me know.

    Am I allowed to host DSTT ENG menu on Supercard SDHC files on gbatemp?

    Ok, this is what you need to do:

    Click here to download DSTT hacked menu.

    All you need from that zip file when extracted is TTMENU.NDS, you can get rid of any thing else. Rename TTMENU.NDS to MSFORSC.NDS.

    Next, download any DSTT version, I currently have 1.0.9 (latest, released yesterday) and extract TTMENU directory/folder on the root of you microSD/HC along with it, you should also get TTMENU.DAT.

    That should make your Supercard run TTMENU, and trust me it works MUCH better and I have not had a single freeze since moving to TTMENU using the same 8GB MicroSDHC card.

    Hope it works and instructions were clear enough.

    I guess this good for the ones that have microsd's that are freezing.

    I thought in raulpica post(although I'm probably wrong since the whole thing is in terrible Engrish) that you can now switch between the DSTT loader and the SCDS1's loader. But I don't know how this can be done, since you have to rename TTMENU.NDS to MSFORSC.NDS.

    Thanks for the tutorial khan.

    I have tried many times and have failed, perhaps if only Bliss's blog was translated properly.

    its easy to boot both loaders
    just keep your scshell folder on your card & rename the original MSFORSC.NDS to MSFORSC1.NDS then load it from the ttds menu

    Is it possible to use the CycloDS firmware on a cheaper card? That would be nice.
