    I purchased a M3DS real and apperently it is the "Sakura" edition. iM not sure if this affects anything but i am have problems getting any firmware/loader/software to work on it.

    I downloaded the software off the m3adapters site, several versions off the gbatemp wiki and tried the Sakurai version but the same error appears. A picture of a microSD with a face on it that says loading, then turns read and gives a [​IMG] face and underneath it says Menu?

    This came with a 2gig micro sandisk with a weird gold sticker on the back that cannot be peeled off because its actually some sort of weird paste. The SD Card itself works fine ic an load it on my computer and it is formatted to be FAT.

    These are all system folders i have tried to use

    [2526]G6_M3DS_R_E25
    [2584]G6_M3DS_R_E26
    [3938]M3_iSakuReal_v1.3
    G6&M3DS-R_E30, E33, and E36

    I use a m3 simply but my sister got this M3Real because simplys arnt made anymore or something? not really sure. Anyways the m3 itself looks identical to any pictures of it except it has M3 Sakura on the top right.

    Can anyone help me get this thing to load even?

    You got an M3 Real clone. Where did you buy it from?

    If the store you bought the fake from advertised it as genuine, I would suggest giving them a bad review in this thread.

    This thread keeps a current list. I recommend RealHotStuff myself if you live in or near the East Coast.

    might also be good to put a review on that site pointing out that it's a fake.
    it's clear that they only sell fakes(the website itself links to m3adaptes for FW) but they advertise it as a real one.
