    I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with this flashcart ( I know is not a good card BUT there is people that have same issues as me and would like to know if its possible to fix )

    is there a way to fix a 2013 r4 dual core card... if running the update firmware file of the "new" r4 dual core card? a lot of people do this simply because they dont read or... idk what.

    I was thinking.. what if i get a really old firmware file that will "update" the card back to the version the 2013 card firmware is at ? 5.6 i believe >_<

    not sure if i make sense :P any help would be appreciated

    You want the cart swap trick.

    1 - Find an older firmware update file for the bricked cart.
    2 - Put that update file on a working cart.
    3 - Grab an original DS or a DS Lite. No DSi or 3DS, period.
    4 - Put the working cart in, start the update program. Do not tell it to update yet.
    5 - Take the working cart out.
    6 - Put the bricked cart in.
    7 - Tell it to apply the update.

    Try adding or changing numbers at the end of URLs, like try downloade2.php or whatever.
