    Hi everyone,

    I flashed the iEdge in my DS and now want my son to use it in his DSi...I formatted the micro SD and re-installed the bootstrap updater...version 2, when booting the DS I get the sudoku icon but once I touch it...I get a black screen and an error code.

    HELP!!! Is this because I initially flashed it in a DSL?

    No that's because you updated your DSi to 1.4.1 and the iEdge can't handle that.

    You should read a bit in the iEdge forum about it.

    Did your son updated his DSi firmware to 1.4.1? iEDGE currently does not support 1.4.1.

    Also, tell your son to never update DSi, it will only block more flashcarts.

    I doubt he updated anything...he is 5 years old...heehee and he just got the DSi today...would the update take place by itself?

    Oh, by now all DSi should come with 1.4.1. Go to system settings, firmware version should be there.

    Can someone format and re-install firmware on the DSi?

    No, you can't. You can buy a more reliable flashcard, that's it.

    Well that totally sucks!!! How often do Edge release updates? I have two other iEdges that have always worked on our other DS and DSi's so will not lose faith in this cart quite yet;)

    Well. I don't think that there are going to be any updates in the future. But that's my personal opinion.

    Better have a look for Acekard 2.i and/or Supercard DSTwo.

    I'm sorry.

    Well you can leave them tech e-mail on their web site and you might get an answer when they will have an update or not.
    Some people have gotten replies, I personally have not. I've had my edge for a little over a month now. Mine still works with my DSI XL but I have not updated it to 1.4.1 yet. I'm waiting for the Iedge fix if it ever comes. If not I can continue using it the way it is or get another card. I'm in no hurry though.

    What I heard is that both iEDGE and CycloDS are made from the same factory. They are separately maintained by different teams.

    Team Cyclops never accused EDGE being a clone, so in technical EDGE and CycloDS are siblings.
