    Which game are you having issue with when applying the cheats?

    Update your sakura to the iSakuReal triple booter.

    Well, it is best you are running the triple booter in the first place. But updating cheat files in Sakura is a bit buggy. Best thing is change your firmware to the triple booter, update the cheat file in that and then put your microSD back in and your cheats should be working.

    the triple loader contains very outdated firmware
    you should be using the official dual boot firmware now

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=4808

    comes with the latest cheat DB installed, just drag and drop the folder onto your card

    Gambia, The
    This may probably not be responsible for your non-working cheats problem but just in case you did not know:

    If you use Sakura and soft-reset (L+R+St+Sel) in a game, cheats will stop working until you turn the DS off and back on.

    Did you press L and R at the same time ingame? sometimes that's necessary.

    We tested Mario Kart and we were able to apply cheats using Sakura. So perhaps re-download the firmware and do a fresh install.

    Something went wrong with the posting. Somehow our account was logged as "jservs7"

    Wait, the triple booter isn't update? I guess I should expect that seeing as FirstAndLast hasn't been on in a while.
