So a few days ago I found this post about converting r4 into Acekard with 3ds. https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-...a-legit-acekard-2i-using-a-hacked-3ds.473764/ It made me wanted to try something. I do have a Acekard2I i got years ago, I used it but it hasn't worked in long time. It lead me to buy other flash carts like ACE3DS which also don't work anymore, Super Card DStwo which I lost and can't find at the moment. I started hating flash carts for buying them and not keeping them long enough to get satisfy useage. I tried the method to restore it but I guess is just broken. The card doesn't work, i stick it in and it just shows nothing. On DSlite the boot screen freezes. I dig deeper and found some thread from years ago that a member "Another world" posted trying to repair it by reflashing update to it. I tried to do it but it stays stuck at 0% and it never does anything, only when i remove the card will the counter reach any higher number. I am beginning to think is just done. I really liked having flash carts but really dislike paying for them over and over just to get disappointed after a few months. Is there a simple way to know if is dead or if I'm doing something wrong? It would be nice to have a working Rom loader for my portable system, so far I had games I never finished cause of the flashcarts, so I just been using emulators like DESEMU on pc or wii u VC injection, is okay at first but some games I wanna play is just isn't the same experience as a NDS/3DS. Now I don't want to think the idea of flashcarts was a scam but it felt like it to me. Especially at the time I had waited like over 2 months from shipment from china, I usually dislike ordering from out of country cause of the long times with saving shipping options.
