Hello dear GBAtemp members,

I am owner of a 1.7 M3i Zero flashcard for several months now and I have just discovered this awesome place here. Unfortunately, there are a lot of different firmwares around, a lot of different loaders and stuff and I simply do not get smarter out of all the information. This is why I have just registered now and why I ask these questions, with the hope to get some suggestions and answers, so already thans in return for this. So..
  • Which firmware should I use?
  • What are the pro's and con's of all the various firmwares?
  • What's the most game-compatible firmware at the moment, especially with newer games?
  • What's the most stable firmware?
  • What is the best setup of my microsd card?
Yes I know, quite a lot of questions and most of them are very similar, but I simply have no idea what's the right choice

* Which firmware should I use? Use YSM3 http://gbatemp.net/t267243-retrogamefan-updates-releases?
* What are the pro's and con's of all the various firmwares? YSM3 is the most UpToDate firmware out there (updatet 1-2 weeks every time)
* What's the most game-compatible firmware at the moment, especially with newer games? YSM3

* What is the best setup of my microsd card? What do you mean?

@ ninovalenti: Are you sure this works on a M3i Zero ???

'Cos unless I'm doing something wrong it doesn't work. It boots up into YSMenu OK but if I select a game I get the usual 'Creating SAV' popup but on several of the games I get
Code:
[Rom loading failed]
Load rom errcode=-4
Please reset system
I thought it MIGHT be something to do with using a 8Gb SDHC so tried it with a smaller 2Gb SD card, & even tough I can get some games to run - most of them I get the error message

Games tried are:
3 in 1 Solitaire, Majong & Tangram (E) - FAILED
Bomberman - OK
Call of Atlantis (E) - FAILED
Drawn to Life Collection (E) - FAILED
Megamind - FAILED
Mario Kart DS - OK
Micheal Jackson The Experience - FAILED
Pokemon Ranger Guardian Signs - OK
