    so im using a supercard (lite) and superkey firmware 1.83 works nice

    my friend has the same cards, and using 1.84, plays ds games like garbage

    can I give him 1.83, or i read something about having to start from 1.7

    thanks

    I doubt it's the firmware, but yeah, you can downgrade the firmware if you run a *.bin file. Just make sure it's the right version for his specific Supercard.

    However, it would probably be better to try to figure out what's actually causing games to slow down. Is he using the latest patcher? It could also be slow microSD card speed. Put your microSD card in his Supercard and see if there's a difference. This will help you determine whether it's the Supercard or the microSD card.

    You will have to downgrade to 1.8, then upgrade version by version from there. I think 1.8 is a *.bin release, if it isn't just follow this process but from the most recent *.bin release.

    1.80 was only a .scu update. No clue what 1.83 was. You may want to downgrade to 1.7 and then upgrade to 1.83.
