    WTF I placed an order through the gbatemp shop a little over a week ago for 2 dssti flash carts and I received them yesterday. I went to put the firmware and update on the carts and it would not accept the update. I then ran the checker to see if the dstti carts where fake or not and I almost shit when it said that they are fake. This site is the last place I thought would sell fake dstti carts. I put the firmware on the carts for that will not kill them and when I try to play a game I just get a white screen. Wow this really sucks and damn sure does not look good for the gbatemp shop. I mean why in the hell would they sell fake carts knowing it and deceiving the members. I am really upset about this and I certainly hope I get it all ironed out some how. I have also started a support ticket for these flash carts and am waiting for a reply.

    In ShopTEMP's defense, perhaps their supplier (whoever that is) gave them fake ones instead of real ones and they didn't know it? I know that this has happened to other reputable sellers of DSTT cards and other flash cards...

    Please do not misunderstand what I am saying. I do not believe they did this intentionally but the fact of the matter is that it was done and I am the one left holding the bag so to speak. That is what this forum is for right. I have also submitted a ticket as well and I used the file from ndstt.com to check the carts to see if they were fake and that is the site on the front of the carts also. I also believe you about them not knowing about the fake carts either.

    I feel like such a stupid ass. I am so sorry gba for posting this about the flash cart. I used the wrong file to check the carts. Now I have the correct file and it is saying that the carts are real so I have a different issue and will post it elsewhere. Again please accept my apology for this dumb ass mistake of mine. I should have known better just like I said I would never expect this from gbatemp and of course the cards are real and not fake. SSSSSSSSSSOOOOOOORRRRRRRYYYYYYYYY

    Even if it was a fake it wouldn't really matter, I think DSTT doesn't make any new updates anyway.

    Why pick the DSTT these days anyway?

    R4DS with WoodR4 is a buck cheaper and a mile better.

    Ah wait, DSTTi, still why get one of those, Acekard 2i is just $3 more.
