    I did update but maybe I used the wrong file.
    Would you mind linking me to the update I should use?

    And I find updates on the Supercard DSTwo work better with just the update file and the kernel, with nothing else on the Micro SD card.

    I forgot
    Format your Micro SD card with Panasonic SD Formatter, try the update again. Sounds more like a contact issue with the SD card then the card itself not working.

    By the way, Alex Rider - Stormbreaker is the current game icon on the home menu for 3DS 3.0.0.6 and DSi 1.43 firmwares.
    AND I 1/2 agree with Pinkie232 because contacts can differ between two DS consoles. The micro sd contacts could be an issue but the DSi slot-1 contacts have a higher probability at being the culprit in this issue rockstar99 is having.

    So that means it did get updated.
    Don't know why it does not work

    Not exactly. The update didn't change anyone's icon with the 3.0.0.6 update. Please check the contacts in the DSi XL as I'm betting your problem is right there. I feel your card is updated but not making solid contact in Slot-1.

    Everything else (Pokemon Soul Silver, Ak2i etc) works on my DSi XL.. and the DSTWO does show up in the menu so I don't think it's a contact proble

    Somewhere near monkat
    You guys are doing it wrong, the firmware is only for compatibility with the 3DS. For DSi/DSi XL compatibility you need the latest EOS (which is as simple and dragging and dropping files to your SD card, you don't need a different DS).

    Latest EOS is here.

    DSTwo will show up without a Micro SD card, it's one of the only flashcards that will. It sounds like you didn't do the firmware update correctly. I know that's a bland answer, and if I was standing there next to you, I'd say give me the card. I'd then format your Micro SD card, re-download the kernel, re-download the firmware update, and re-flash the DSTwo in your DS Lite. Slot-1 contacts are not the problem. So it looks like Pinkie232 was either right about the micro SD card reader within the DSTwo being the problem or the micro sd card itself OR the update/kernel wasn't set up correctly. You are definitely narrowing down the issue rockstar99. :)

    Terminator02, you are absolutely correct, but I was assuming that rockstar99, being an experienced flashcard user, had already placed the latest EOS on his Micro SD card. If this ends up solving the problem rockstar99 then you need to go back to modding school :blink:

    For the dsi, do you need the dstwobooot.dat? I have new dstwo v1.11 and a dsi 1.44. Thanks
