    So I'm doing exactly as in the yakaracolombia guide to hardmod.
    I've soldered 4 wired to the sd card adapter, but the problem is that 2ds boots regular set up, instead of blue screen with numbers
    What can cause the problem?

    I'm using regular transcend microsd adapter and asus k53sm card reader

    I think you reversed CLK and CMD, although the photo of the adapter is not very clear!

    aren't the green and the white wires shorted ?:!!!!
    and as Ryccardo said , the cmd , data0 and clock are all wired wrong
    so they should be like that :
    red wire = data0
    black wire = cmd
    as for the other 2 , you have to separate them , ican't telll wich one is gnd

    Thanks, for the reply
    Black must be CLK
    White must be CMD
    Red must be DAT0
    Green must be GND.

    I really got messed up with adapter, and I'll fix that with the help of the picture below. Hopefully the console still works.

    seems like you are still mixing the wires , maybe because you are handling the sd card adapter on the opposite side , you better use a multimeter to check the wires location before you connect the sd adapter to a sd card reader
    here is a picture i found somwhere to show the correct wires (to an o3ds)

    Yeah I know that picture, and there is for 2ds
    [​IMG]
    And this is where confusion with CLK and CMD

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Here we can see that TP260 is CLK and TP253 is CMD
    [​IMG]
    But on this picture they are the opposite
    [​IMG]

    Well, I swapped black and white wires and still no progress - 2ds normally boots

    TP260 - CLK

    you know that you must plug the sd adapter to an sd card reader before powering the 2ds?
    and the adapter must not be connected to to pc till the 2ds shows the blue screen?

    Well, I've bought a new card reader for this (transcend ts-rdp5) and now the blue screen with bootrom and error code comes. But the problem is, that my PC won't see the MMC device, when I launch windiskimager

    What can be wrong?

    So finally I got it right, and diskimager can see my 2ds
    But now the problem is, that diskimager gives me error 19 (protected from writing)

    my current adapter is set to unlocked and doesn't have that plastic part, so my card reader won't even set it to locked

    "Doesn't have" as in fell off? The default is locked, on all card Readers I've seen...

    Ditto cutting it off like that could be what caused it to act how it is. Make a new adapter mod and try with it without cutting off or removing the lock switch. Even if it is in "unlocked" mode.

    The reader actually senses the position of the switch, so if you cut it off, it won't be able to sense it anymore, which could lead to unpredictable behavior. Try putting a piece of electrical tape over the switch slot.

    Yes the switch or something has to be there for the reader to write. It does nothing in the adapter its self.
