    Is there any way to do a complete factory reset on a DSiXL?

    I've all ready tried:
    - formatting the system memory, and all it did was wipe all pictures, audio files, ect.
    - removing battery pack for appx. 5 minutes, and reinserting.

    all of the above haven't worked.

    My son updated the system, with out realizing it wouldn't allow the flashcard to work anymore. About ready to trash it if it can't be undone.

    Thanks for any and all information you can give.

    You can't downgrade DSi. You will need a DSlite to update your flashcart's firmware.

    you CAN NOT downgrade

    when you update you system

    THERE IS NO GOING BACK

    if you have updated to 1.4.3 that is NOW the default FW
    so doing a Factory reset the dsi will still be 1.4.3


    get a new flash card or get a 1.4.3 fix update for your card

    Well now I think that the card is a fake. The front is up to standards, but the back is not. LOL go figure.

    Just confirmed it. Husband says he tried to download a new game to it, and it wouldn't work, even though the card has plenty room for more downloads.

    So I guess my next question will be what flashcart should I get that will work on the updated DS? Also will I be able to transfer the games on the old card to the new card?

    Acekart 2i with 1.4.3 update pre-installed
    You can transfer the games and the saves!

    Hi you will also need a Micro SD card (2GB can hold about 20 games and should be fairly enough for young children use)

    Also check to get an Acekard2i already flashed by the shop to bypass 1.4.3 firmware (maybe little fee to pay for the service) and that it comes with a Micro SD usb reader (maybe have to buy one separately but it is low cost)

    You can chose a shop from this page : http://shoptemp.net/products/Acekard-2i.html

    I often read positive feedback about "Real Hot Stuff" shop (though, maybe wait for actual customers to advice you better than me maybe.. my last buy was from shoptemp when it was still selling so i can't tell from my own experience on that one)

    Flashcard + flashing frimware + micro Sd + usb reader should not get higher than 50bucks all in all (port included)

    Happy shopping! [​IMG]

    I don't agree to one part
    Some games are bigger in size then others,there are 8MB, 16MB, 32MB, 64MB, 128MB and 256MB(and some others that are "cut")

    I reccomend at least 4GB [​IMG]

    This, exactly.. SCDTWO is overrated apart from a cool video player, the GBA and SNES emu are barely just decent (i strongly suggest to get a PSP if you want those emulated on a handheld accurately and actually greatly)

    Stick with Acekard2i [​IMG]
