    EZ5i unbricker v1.01

    Change log (v1.01):

    - fixed the bug of recognition with some bricked EZ5i.

    Change log (v1.0):

    Requirement :
    -----------

    - a DSlite or DS.
    - a slot 1 flashcard able to run the unbricker homebrew. We will call it the host flashcard.
    - your bricked EZ5i without any microSD inserted.


    !! Warning !!
    - Make sure your DSlite or DS is under good battery condition and there is nothing in the slot 2.
    - Do not power-off or pull out the flashcard during any update process.
    - If you use an EZ5i as the host flashcard be sure to use the kernel 3.0ob7 final version.


    Instructions :
    ------------

    1. Extract the unbricker .nds file on the microSD's root of your host flashcard.
    2. Insert the host flashcard in the slot 1 of your DSlite or DS and launch the unbricker.
    3. Eject the host flashcard and insert the bricked EZ5i without microSD inserted in it as asked.
    4. Press Y to start the flashcard recognition. If all goes well you should see the hardware version and firmware version of your bricked EZ5i (HD=705 or 805, Firmware=106). Go to point 6 now.
    5. If the flashcard is not recognized, the unbricker will tell you it can't read anything and invite you to try again.
    Press Y. Eject the EZ5i and clean the golden traces. Blow in the slot 1, insert the EZ5i and retry point 4.
    If after several attempts your EZ5i is still not recognized, then it's probably totally dead. Sorry, no way to recover it.
    6. Press A now to start the first step, the firmware update. Do not interrupt it or you will kill your EZ5i for good ! Wait until the end of the process.
    7. Once the firmware update finished, the unbricker ask you to eject and insert again your EZ5i. Proceed.
    8. Press Y to start the flashcard recognition. If all goes well you should see the hardware version (HD=705 or 805) and the new firmware version 107 of your EZ5i. Go to point 10 now.
    9. If the flashcard is not recognized, the unbricker will tell you it can't read anything and invite you to try again.
    Press Y. Eject the EZ5i and clean the golden traces. Blow in the slot 1, insert the EZ5i and retry point 8.
    10. If you get the message "sorry your ez5i can't unbrick directly, send key1, key2, key3, key4 to ezunbricker[at]gmail.com", please send those keys by email. Shutdown your DS and wait for the answer and instructions.
    11. If you get the message "Ok! your ez5i can unbrick directly!", then press A to start the second step, the unbricking process. You will see an erase and write process with hexadecimal addresses scrolling on the screen. Wait until the end, do not interupt it !
    When all is finished you get the message "***** Unbrick successful!! *****". Congratulation your EZ5i is re-birthed, you can shutdown your DS.

    @Romee: Yes it's the new firmware. You can update your ez5i with a DSlite. Just eject an insert your flashcart when it's asked. ;)

    @Fast6191 : thanks for the news on gbatemp.

    @all : Any feeback about the unbricker is appreciated. Good or bad, we need feedback.
    The unbricker is called 1.0 because the team estimate maybe it needs some adjustment for some case, so don't hesitate to make a feedback if your ez5i isn't recognized. ;)

    Finally! Another update!
    I hope they don't make OB8 wait until they have fixed all games. I hope they release OB8 with some game fixes and OB9 with some more...

    That way I think they will be done faster

    What is the difference between v106 and v107... or is v107 only the unbricker?
    Can you update a not bricked v106 to v107?

    Yeah, that unbricker is both an unbricker and updater to 107. I did the same yesterday, updating first to 106a (trying to brick so I can test the unbricker - which of course did not work out) and then updating to 107 with the unbricker. Just, when it tells you to eject the card and insert the "bricked" EZ5i, just eject and reinsert the EZ5i, then it'll work.

    @qlum : yeah it will be fixed. The team need to find out why the hybrid mode fail on those games.

    @Jonez : it's not required.

    But would it be a good idea to update my cart.. just in case?
    Is it possible to update, without using another flashcart, form v106 to v107

    You need a DSlite or a DS, the DSI and the 3DS doesn't allow the hot-swap.

    @all : the unbricker v1.01 should be released today. The team fixed the recognition of some bricked EZ5i.
    All kind of bricked ez5i can be seen now. ;)
    Stay tuned.

    Wait I can't seem to find 107 Firmware
    I can only find the OB7 Kernal

    Edit : I'm disappointed with the OB7 Kernal. I expected the EZ-Vi team to finally fix the RT Save and "Soft Reset Menu" to perfection. But as usual, it freezes on 60% of games. :|
    Nonetheless, I'm still happy with the EZ-Vi and I say Cheers and great work for fixing their product. Maybe they can fix those issues another time. ;)
