EZ5i v12 internal firmware released- DSi 1.4 works
fixes SDHC problems of V11. Also moonshell 2.00 soft reset.
51.jpg

The EZTeam have released v12 of the EZ5i internal firmware/loader which allows EZ5i carts to run on DSi firmware 1.4, it also solves the problems with the [705] hardware revision and SDHC memory that yesterday's v11 had (it also bypassed 1.4 making them the first team to release a software update to allow their cards to run on a DSi with 1.4 firmware). If you updated to v11 yesterday and have a [705] hardware revision EZ5i then you will need a SD card to update again.




This is not the first EZ5i update but it is potentially one of the more important. It allows the EZ5i to work under a DSi using the 1.4 firmware but doing so presently requires that the cart use a proper icon and text from a game.
Updating is as simple as running the ez5firmwreUP_V12.nds from the root of the EZ5i, naturally this requires something that works with the DSi like a DS, DS lite or DSi with firmware lower than 1.4, the whole procedure takes about 30 seconds although we do suggest that you charge your device and preferably power it from the wall as well.

A check was also added so you can no longer downgrade to an earlier firmware and brick your EZ5i (it should just hang if you try).

This is just the internal loader so you can continue using any kernel that works with the EZ5i.

EZ5 moonshell 2.XX soft reset

Also available since last post is a soft reset plugin for moonshell, the EZTeam sent Moonlight some source code and he made one for use. This should work for all EZ5 models

It is a sha256 from what I hear, generating a collision for that (or worse a preimage) would probably gain you a fast car ride with mandatory facebag.

Hope it wasn't just a simple string search that was blocking these things. ie title of icon file

Here is just hoping that Supercard get theirs sorted, and for that matter, all of the other ones as well.

Question though, I have read lots about how that the card now contains copyrighted info (it pretends to be a comercial cart) which is illegal blah blah blah. Surelly flash carts are illegal anyway are they not, regardless of if they contain copyrighted code.

I think what has happened now is that you have gone from a potentially grey area of "is it legal or isn't it" to a definite breach of copyright by using the name and icon... this will be interesting to watch. I feel the other cart makers ( acekard and M3 ) may hold off still further till they see what the legal ramification of this is

We may find this pushes the WHOLE cart issue right into the legal fore and there is now definite ammunition in Nintendo's gun for shutting them down

..... interesting times indeed.

nice to release an update like this, but i still dont understand why the r4i gold team figured it out faster

Dont think they figured it out faster, just they reported a fix that uses parts of an existing games code, whether its the icon name or actual code, some of the other cart makers know of this fix from what I have read but didnt want to release a fix that could potentially land them in legal trouble for using it. The other cart makers still may not release it as a fix.
