    firstly I'd like to apologize for posting in the wrong section, but it seems that no one goes to the NDS section anymore, so posting there will result in two weeks with no replies until a googler say something rather useless
    anyways, this is a NDS flashcard problem, and an update related one, once again, sorry for posting in the wrong section, but this is the only way to help help here...

    so I this old clone from http://www.r4isdhc.hk/download_white_new/ (it was a gift, don't ask)
    I used http://www.r4i3d.com/download/fwUpdate_V5.06.rar and I managed to make it work on a DSi on 1.4.5, but I was so eager to test it what I could do, that I used http://www.r4isdhc.hk/download_2014/3DSV7.0.0-13 upgarde firmware.rar and now all I get is a white screen when launching games
    what I need here is a way to used the Flash Writer I used before to downgrade the card to the previous state, I can still run the updater file, but it says I got a newer version and it's not needed, but I'll say it again: it goes white screen when launching anything! and also, I can't buy a USB Dongle, they don't seel anywhere in my town, and the shipping would be pricier than a new flashcard, so, is there a way to forcefully install an old update? like a secret button combo or something? can I use my modded 2DS as the writer with some kind of homebrew? or can I edit the update file to trick the cart to think that's a newer version? (that's easy for me to do, but I got no tools that works on this kind of homebrew)
    thanks anyways
