    i used to have the old 1.7 ish moonshl kernel and it worked. but now i dled 2.0 rc6 so i can play mario and luigi.
    i put the contents of the 2.0rc6 kernel into the root of the sd card, and a game folder with some games in it. but when i start it, it saids safefree request nullpointer, something like that.
    what am i doing wrong?
    thanks

    Format and install the new kernel, so it won't conflict with remains of the old.

    ok, so i did a full format of the sd card and put the kernel back in.
    now it has ez5shell and the ezysbin something, with a folder of games.
    but when i turn my ds on i get the same problem :l

    when i use the kernel 1.70, it says the same thing "safefree request nullpointer"
    i dont know why, but for some reason, it seems like the only kernel that works for me is 1.86h T_T
    i formatted so much times [​IMG]
