    I was trying to install the latest firmware update, and it froze at about 10%, then my DS Lite turned off a few seconds later. Now it just hangs at the first startup screen (with the loading bar) and I can't find a way to fix it. Is there some sort of emergency recovery or something maybe that could be run off a slot-2 card? (I still have a Supercard SD around, if there is anything.) I already tried renaming update.evo to .nds, and it didn't work with or without running it through dsbuild.exe.

    Edit: Phew. Found it here. Down + B with slot-2 empty on boot activates recovery mode.

    It wasn't caused by the Cyclo itself, it was a hardware fault (loss of contact with the pins) that caused it; I'm just glad there is in fact an emergency recovery mode for just such a situation.
