    I will test this tomorrow, thanks for the quick update. Hopefully the fix can be applied to a future F-Core release so that players do not experience this issue.

    This fix got things going just fine. Thanks M3 Team

    Hmm.. this sucks. Just bought a M3i Zero card because it didn't require a NDS for flashing upgrades.
    Will we be able to update without a NDS in the near future?

    I just did this an it works perfectly! My M3i cart does not have anything written on the top right so I imagine it's not GMP-Z003. Regardless thank you, but I have two questions.

    1.) ROMs are working great and it's all working perfectly, but I did not run M3GUpdaterPlus_142. Is this wrong? Is there some reason everyone says I should run the M3GUpdaterPlus_142 file using a DS Lite/DSi first?

    2.) It states, "(For the detail of installing the system or "M3SAKURA", please read the corresponding instruction.)" but I do not see any corresponding instructions. I'm not sure how to install M3Sakura but would really really love to have it back.
