    For some random reason, it just popped into my head.


    Can you run firmware from another type of flashcart on your flashcart. [EG running EZflash firmware on an acekard]

    i doubt it, but im asking to be sure [​IMG]

    You're soul...
    Actually I've tried running the DSTT firmware (fake destroyer disabled obviously) on a R4 clone (R4i SDHC Upgrade from www.r4i-sdhc.com) and it works.... just some minor slowdowns... Surprisingly, one of the really really really really early Acekard 2 firmwares ran on my card but when I pressed the microSD icon.. it froze... so yeah [​IMG]

    YS Menu is a DSTT firmware that was used in R4. so it needs modification.

    M3 and R4 has similar firmware so they were intercangable before

    Most of the time, the answer is no. However, you can run the DSTT firmware on a Supercard DS One, because of their similar hardware.
