    Hello, so I tried updated my DSTWO to firmware 1.25/EOS 1.14 and it froze at 0% so I turned it off. Now my 3ds,DSlite, and DSi cant even see the card at all when before it did.

    Any ideas on what I could do?

    Ty.

    for how long? did you wait at least 5 minutes?

    heh, all we can say is, check your micro sd card, try another..
    my card sometimes don't want to appear in console menu, other times shows a no find sd card blue screen...
    i am not even sure if there is a firmware flasher homebrew...

    also, that needs to be done in an original DS or DS lite.
    can't be done in dsi or 3ds, cuz some hardware thing (console stops providing the card with power)

    I waited for like 40-60 mins. I had to do some chores and checked on it like every 10mins.

    I do have another DSTWO and tried this on my DSlite. Had to use the silver of tape trick and the dslite doesnt recognize the broken DSTWO. pressing B does nothing.

    I would try to find a way, but it seems like there isnt an OS on the DSTWO anymore.


    yeah around 30 bucks for a gba flashcard.

    Well thanks guys.

    it's a gbatemp DSTWO?
    you can try to sell it here at the temp to get some money for a dstwo+..
    i know it's broken but someone might try to revive it.., or swap the shell with a regular dstwo..
    i remember even @DinohScene wanted a gbatemp version one

    Someone really needs to make a 3DS mode app capable of reflashing nds flashcarts. :V

    This probably already exists lol, just look around on the internet. Custom Firmware can already run NDS flashcarts on the latest firmware so.

    Let the record show that you bumped a thread from over almost two months ago, and that ntr boot wasn't even released publically at the time.
    And no, there is nothing for reflashing DSTwo's in CTR mode... yet.

    It's possible ntr-boot's flashcart core may support DSTwos eventually though, which would maybe be what I was referring to there.

    Two months old isn't that bad lol. The record knows people still use flashcarts so it isn't exactly a bad thing now is it.

    Well, reviving this old fella, my DSTwo is "dead". I use my NDSLite for testing it. NDSLite reads my Ak2i's just fine. My DSTwo sat in a drawer for a good amount of time (years), unused. Things I have tried include, but are not limited to: cleaning contacts with alcohol, a known-good microSD card 2GB freshly formatted with only EOS on it (whichever was the newest version), taking the case apart visual inspection, made an offering to the gods. Of course, none had any positive effect. I may have thrown it in my N3DSXL and booted up GM9 to see if I could see anything. If I did, I had no success as I don't recall it. Yes I've thrown it in my 3DS to see if it works, it does not. N3DSXL is in sig. NDSLite is flashed with flashme firmware. It worked just fine when I used it years ago. No changes to the NDSLite since.

    When I say "dead" I mean it does not even appear as a menu icon (or in the case of the NDSLite, it says no cart is inserted). Yes I have tried putting in the microSD different ways. Pushing to one side to get proper alignment, blah blah blah. Yes I have tried putting in the DSTwo differently, pushing it in hard, blah blah blah. If anybody recognizes my nick here, you'll know I'm not a complete idiot.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Why would it just die though? No onboard battery so what could be going wrong? Possible to fix?

    I have no idea, maybe when you did use it you were careless with it, who knows.
