    I'm sorry that you DSTWO bricked on you, it's not a common occurrence. :(

    One's inner self
    you can unbrick a Supercard DStwo
    if you have another flashcard

    1, you need a DS/DSL and another flashcart which can run homebrew (e.g. DSONE/R4/DSTT... etc)
    2, download latest EOS and dstwoupdate.dat file which from the latest fireware of DSTWO
    3, Run dstwo_load_NDSL.nds [​IMG] dstwo_load_NDSL.rar (21.91 KB) with another flashcart which can run homebrew (e.g. DSONE/R4/DSTT... etc) on a DS/DSL, then u should see this screen:
    [​IMG]
    4, insert DSTWO (without microsd card!!!)
    5, insert the microsd card which stores latest EOS and dstwoupdate.dat file into DSTWO
    6, Press B

    I tried doing that before but when I pressed b nothing happened. I'll give it another go though.

    Hi


    I'm having a similar kind of problem.
    My DSTWO plus is recognized on my original DS.
    My DSi LL recognizes DSTWO plus only very rarely(about 1 in 50 eject re-eject cycles).
    Could this be a EOS or firmware issue?
    I tried to use the latest EOS but the system meny says 1.11 .
    Also there isn't any update when I have put the latest firmware to the root of SD.

    I have read that DSi and DSI XL squeeze flash carts a bit differently than DS and DS Lite.
    I have tested both of my systems with a working game which is recognized by the both systems.
    So the DSi LL should have a working game slot.

    As I said the original DS reads my flash cart perfectly(sometimes I'll have to eject and plug it in then it works).

    Not trying to be rude but you’d have better luck making a new topic than reviving a 5 year old one. I can’t comment on your issue since my DSTWO never worked again and I have an r4i gold rts now.

    That might be because of the slot 1 cartridge slot your DSi is using, I actually found this to be one of the cases because I actually have three older DSi models and one revision DSi model (all of them are the regular sizes not XL/LL). The DSTWO is able to slip into the old DSi slot 1 cartridge slots just fine, however it was a tight fit when I stuck it in the revision model. I personally disassembled one of the older models and the revision model and inspected the slot 1 cartridge slot myself, there was definitely noticeable differences. The DSi XL/LL models are using the revision slots so that's probably why it is a tight fit.

    To your issues with the EOS "1.11" issue, it actually is EOS 1.14 it's just that the SuperCard team forgot to change the version number on that version of the EOS. I too use the latest EOS and it says 1.11, no need to worry about it. The latest game icon for the DSTWO/DSTWO+ is "Alex Rider Stormbreaker", which means you already have the latest flashcart firmware installed (DSTWO+ automatically has this firmware installed by default).

    If your DS console(s) doesn't recognize the DSTWO when you stick into the slot the first or maybe second time around, I recommend you clean the pins, sometimes the pins can get very dirty making it hard for the console to recognize the cartridge/flashcart. Use a Q-tip and some alcohol to clean it (use one side of the Q-tip for the alcohol and the other side to help dry it off a little quicker).

    Lastly I recommend upgrading to a 3DS model (New 2DS/3DS recommended). I also have two 3DS consoles, one being the new model the other being the older model, both are XL consoles. The DSTWO+ is able to be used in those just fine. (I also recommend you get custom firmware on the 2DS/3DS consoles because that allows you to use any flashcart on any 3DS firmware without having to update the flashcart firmware.)
