    I put nesDS onto my m3i flashcard.

    Now it won't boot.

    I tried taking the program off, putting new firmware, and a buncha other things, and now it won't even load up Sakura anymore. =(

    I ended up downgrading and it works again. Reupgrading it as I type.

    EDIT: So, it turns out that Sakura stopped working, but the basic firmware works fine (aside from not being as good as Sakura [​IMG] ). I suspect reformatting it might do the trick, but I want to ask before I do that:

    Are there any other good OS's for the m3i zero aside from Sakura? Also, are there any places where I can download themes?

    sound like you might have corrupted a few files in sakura...just backup your files, reformat the card and reinstall the sakura loader.

    the only OS' available for the m3i zero and the m3 real are sakura, touchpod(the default firmware) and itouchds, you can get a triple boot loader with all 3 on it called isakureal but the latest version uses pretty old versions of touchpod and sakura, plus there's no real benefit to having itouchds. Just stick with sakura and you'll always be able to use touchpod as well since if comes with sakura.

    Nesds has nothing to do with it. The spring loaded microSD slot on the M3i Zero is very loose. The M3i Zero icon will always load (disguised as game), but it took me 8 or 9 tries of unplugging and plugging back in the microSD card before the microSD card would be recognized. Even now, the microSD card will sometimes come loose and the m3i zero will just load a black screen instead of the OS.

    Now is a prefect time to get rid of that card and buy an Acekard 2i
