    Well, when I turned on my Supercard Mini, all I saw were these "Garbage" letters, so I thought if I re-did the firmware, it would be fixed. Well, when I did it, it froze up at the end. I turned my GBA on and all I saw was the splash screen. Can anyone help me unbrick it?

    It has 1.85, by the way, if it helps.

    Do you have any other way of starting a homebrew *.gba or *.nds file on your GBA or a DS?

    Yes, I have an R4.

    Is there a way to fix it through my R4?

    Actually yes. I searched SCDev a bit and found the following post, and as of now the links still work even though you can no longer find the links on the main Supercard site.

    If all else fails, you can try bitblt's free Supercard recovery service (plus shipping), available at http://www.scdev.org/forum/index.php/topic,2648.0.html
