    To set up your (possibly fake) DSTT for the first time, follow these directions:[*]Use the Panasonic formatter to reformat your microSD card: http://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/sd/d..._formatter.html[*]Grab the official 1.17 menu from here (but do NOT install TTMENU.DAT from it as it contains the fake-killer code!!!): http://www.ndstt.com/download.html[*]Copy the TTMENU folder (but not TTMENU.DAT) from the official firmware to your microSD card.[*]Grab this archive: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=4086[*]Copy TTMENU.DAT from the archive to your microSD card (that version has the fake-killer code disabled). Optional: copy DsttFlashChecker.nds to your microSD card.[*]Make a folder named "games" on your microSD card. Copy 2 or 3 games (.nds files) to the new "games" folder.[*]Run "safely remove hardware", select your microSD reader in the list, and press STOP before removing your microSD card from your PC.[*]Insert your DSTT into the NDS. Insert your microSD card into the DSTT. Turn on the NDS.[*]You should see a menu with your games and the DsttFlashChecker program listed (if you installed it). You can run DsttFlashChecker if you installed it to see if you have a real or a fake DSTT.[*]You should be able to run your games now. Always keep the following in mind:
    • Always leave some free space on your microSD card for save files and system files.
    • Always put games into your "games" folder. Also, put homebrew into a folder. Leave as few files as possible on the root of your microSD card.
    • Always use "safely remove hardware" to remove your microSD card from your PC.
    • Use the Panasonic formatter if you ever have to reformat.
    • Make sure you don't use the official TTMENU.DAT (particularly if you have a fake) because it contains fake-killer code.

    Had that too, your kernel must be in a folder called eng? Put them in the root of the MicroSD card.

    Be kind to me I'm very new to this!

    I looked at the DSTT website recently and discovered a checking piece of software for DSTTi's I thought mine was fake but it told me mine was genuine! As far as I know all it does is check your cartridge I don't think a killer is built into it!

    Welcome to the forum, sneerfulbrute. I haven't seen anyone report that the DSTTi checker has fake-killer code built into it, but you never know with the DSTT team. On the other hand, I didn't even know there were fake DSTTi's so maybe this is a preemptive move on the part of Team DSTT. I sure wish they'd spend as much time improving their firmware as they do worrying about fakes.

    Thanks bri - just a little update. I recieved my DSTTi which I had ordered direct from the DSTT website in Hong Kong today. After doing all the usual I went back to a little celophane packet that had come with it. I opened it up to to my surprise and delight there was a free pack of DSi srceen protectors. Its a small thing of course, but it was a nice touch! Further to this point - A site that I deal with wants £7.50 + Post for the screen savers I got for free!
