    Hi,

    recently I bought myself a DSi, and retired my DS "phat". In addition I bought myself an EZ-flash Vi.

    Although I have quite some experience with an EZ-Flash V card, I can not figure out which files I need to put on my Ez-Flash Vi.

    At the EZ-flash site I see two file sets: Kernel 1.90 openbeta10 and EZ5i firmware v5.

    Which one should I put on my freshly Panasonic tool formatted 2 Gbyte card? [​IMG]

    I read some warnings about screwing up an EZ Flash Vi with incompatible files, so I appreciate your help!

    On my computer, where else?
    EZ5i firmware v5: A stable kernel, which means that there are not many bugs and works with EZ flash Vi

    Kernel 1.90 openbeta10: Its a beta kernel with new features, with many bugs and works with Ez flash Vi

    If you want to get earlier beta kernels, make sure you get Kernel 1.90 openbeta9 and up

    Your choice...

    Thanks for your reply Thunderboyx.

    I was wandering though which one to take, as both zipfiles you refer to contain different files: 1.90b10 contains ez5sysbin + moonshell while ez5i firmware 5 contains just a single file ez5firmware5.nds.

    I recognise the filestructure of 1.90b10, it resembles the files I use on the EZflash V in my "phat" DS. The ez5i firmware 5 file appears to be the more appropriate one but I do not recognise the file (does it contain ez5sys.bin + moonshell)?

    unzip both into your card, making sure to keep the directory structure, when your EZflash boots, run the ez5firmware.nds file then you can delete it
    The 1.90b11 is also out, thats the main software for your ezflashVi, the nds file is an updater for the internals, and will up your system to revision 5.

    Morganti thank you.

    If I understand you correctly, once I extracted both zipfiles on my flash card I will have the following structure (E:\ is the root of my flashcard):

    E:\ez5firmwarev5.nds
    E:\ez5sys.bin
    E:\moonshl\...... -> complete moonshell directory

    yes, then run the .nds file and your ezflash vi will update.

    A big thank you to Marganti and iwakura .

    I followed your advise. It worked as you described (it turned out that my ez-flash came with rev 1 "firmware" which I updated with the ezfirmwarerev5.nds to rev 5).

    So I am now a happy camper with 1.90b11 running on ez-flash Vi rev5 firmware. [​IMG]

    Thanx again guys!!
