    Ok. Now for sure this is not the latest kernel. Don't know why windirt has uploaded it to the official FTP. So stay tuned for the official one.
    Sounds like the EZVi and EZ5 Plus will have a bootloader update soon also.
    This will fix SDHC detection on some slow cards. [​IMG]

    Funny how they haven't posted 2.0 releases on the English website.

    Can't try it yet. Can't find MicroSD reader. Sounds good though...

    seeing as how it's not a full kernel i wouldn't see the need to post it on the site.

    Does Scribblenauts work now? What about M&L BIS (unpatched)?

    OK, so how do I use this again? I've copied the file and folder to my root... does the EZShell folder replace the moonshl folder? I don't remember seeing it before. So is all I need to do copy it, or do I need to run anything in the loader?

    EDIT:
    WOAH WOAH WOAH. This looks nothing like what it looked like before! I guess I've only ever updated the firmware? Everything is so fast now, but how do I get my skins to work? And L+R+A+B doesn't seem to give me a menu anymore...

    So place it in the skin folder in EZ5Shell? Or in the one in moonshl? If EZ5Shell, does that mean I can erase the whole moonshlfolder of my SD card?

    Hehe. Sounds like you were in k1.90 before. It does that when you jump into k2.0 series. Fast is the right word to symbolize this kernel. [​IMG]

    About in game menu, you have to point your game on top screen, touch orange circle to open rom setting window.
    Enabled SR, RTS and press ok. Start your game.

    I haven't started from the beginning, so I can't comment on that.

    I've noticed this same problem when I've chosen a save file from another card (acekard, cyclo) where I was further along, and copied it to the EZVi. The game loads, and even runs fine occasionally. However, then it becomes unplayable (black screens, freezing, unresponsive). I've given up on trying to play this particular game on this Kernel. I think they need to work on making this Kernel more stable before Releasing another set of fixes for future games.

    I deleted the rom's dat file, and that seemed to help, but it eventually went back to the same problems listed above.

    I also don't now why users has those weird bugs and i'm tired to ask them always the same things : "is your EZVi up to date concerning firmware ?" "Have you deleted all previous .dat file (ROMDAT) and .ini files (ROMINI) ?"
    You see ?
    When i test a new kernel i backup my microSD, format it, unzip it in root and copy back only my saves and fresh unziped dump.
    Nothing else.
    When you swap to several old kernels, you get those bugs with mixed configuration files.
    RC6 is stable to my eyes, but not to some. Perhaps they might do like i do when i update to a new kernel ? [​IMG]

    @all : Next step, DSi enhanced game fix and a bunch of AP fix.
    No auto overlay patch for now, but i think this will happen.
