    Hi cls.
    First you have to do the bootstrap update that you seem to have never done since now.
    The bootloader menu must become blue with white text.
    To do so, please follow those steps :

    - be sure your DS is full of power
    - backup your microSD on your PC
    - format your microSD in FAT (FAT16)
    - download kernel 1.70
    - unzip it on root of your microSD
    - start your DS and stay in menu
    - hold R and touch ezv logo to enter bootloader menu
    - press R again to update the ez5upldr.bin file
    - when it's finished, press A to enter the loader
    - be carefull here, you will see the bootstrap update so don't interrupt this process !
    - when you are under the shell it's ok you can shutdown your DS
    - to verify if your EZV v1 is updated, go again in bootloader menu. It should be blue with white text now.
    - if all is ok, format again your microSD and download k2.0 RC6. Unzip it in root of your microSD.
    - copy back only your games and saves.
    - and forget the bootloader menu, it's no longer used with new kernels.

    Enjoy your new kernel. [​IMG]

    WARNING to people who will read this post, this procedure is only for EZ5 v1, never try that on any other EZ5 version including EZ5i !!

    Wow. What is this ...
    Time to see if panasonic formatter is a great tool.

    Download this tool and install it.
    Format your microSD with option Full erase ON and Auto adjust size ON.
    Unrar the k2.0RC6 on your PC. Copy paste it on root of the microSD (please don't unrar it directly on your microSD). You should have a folder EZ5shell and a file ez5sys.bin in root.
    Now copy back your games and saves.

    Ok. I can re-do this error when i copy only the kernel on the microSD and nothing else.
    CLS, is it what you have done ?

    Please copy at last some games on it before try new k2.0. [​IMG]
