    I just got my new M3i Zero in the mail today - there was great excitement. However, the excitement was quickly followed by two hours of Internet searching and crappy customer service.

    I followed the standard flash directions and seemingly got the card to flash properly. I popped the card into my DSL and noticed that A) it didn't auto-boot and B) showed a random game (normal for the v1.4 firmware fix). I tried to launch the M3i0, but only got a white screen. Upon reseting the DS, I was met with the "There is no DS Card inserted." screen. All of my subsequent attempts to reflash the card are met with a solid red LED.

    I'm wondering what else I can do. I cannot find an older version of the kernel to reflash with. I've tried reformatting both of my microSD cards (FAT and FAT32) to no avail. Any help I can get would be great.

    read the guide in my signature and follow it! ....and also you only see the new real/original game icon on the DSi [​IMG]

    and here is the original release flash file link

    Solid red LED using either F-Core on multiple microSD.

    try lightly cleaning the contact strip on the UPGRADE device that you connect to your M3i ZERO

    and try a different USB PORT [​IMG]

    Cleaned the strip and tried USB ports on 4 computers (classroom). Still a solid red LED.

    Getting the same problem. Beginning to think the M3i is flawed.
