    I followed the directions in the faq, and double checked with videos.
    When I insert the card into my DSi XL I see the icon for MechAssault however when I go to open it I get the error,

    "An error has occurred. Press and hold the Power Button to turn the system off. Please see the Nintendo DSi Operations manual for help troubleshooting"

    I reformatted the SD card as fat32 and redownloaded the firmware and bootstrap just in case. However it was to no avail. I scanned the first few pages of the forum, but I didn't see anything in regards to this card. Sorry if its a repost.

    I even took my DS back to factory settings just in case that was the problem, but I still get the same issue. Is there anything I can do or am I completely out of luck and wasted my money?

    What firmware is your DSi on?
    The iEvo hasn't been updated for newer firmware

    Ver. 1.4.3
    The ievo firmware I used 2.3 which is the most up to date, but I tried the prior version 2.2, but that didn't work either. :/

    factory setting have nothing to do with flash cart compatibility.

    If you're on the newest DSi firmware than the iEVO won't work.
    Nothing anyone can do about it

    Did Cyclo drop the project or so you think they will release a new update?

    I can't say for sure, but I doubt we'll ever see an update for the iEvo

    I only have a Dsi. Can it only be done while using the DSL? If not I'm sure I can get my hands on one somehow.

    As said, you need a dslite to use this trick.

    Or a DSi/DSiXL with 1.4.2 or below. Go try a DSL out in a Gamestop or other used console seller and ask if you can play a few minutes with it and see how it works for you.

    Other than that, nothing can be done to help you unless TC releases a new FW build to enable it at least for 1.4.3.. 3DS compatibility may be lost for DS mode without constant updates, but at least the DSi/DSiXL could still be saved..

    Wow, the iEvo really DID wind up like the original card. No support. :(

    Sadly, so far, yes. Though this is bound to happen to all products on the long run, but this one's life cycle is quite a bit too short..
