    Sounds like it's bricked, sorry. This happens rarely with some flash carts (notoriously with large game ROMs like the pokemon ones).

    You'll need a second flash cart along with the DS Lite to unbrick it.

    1 - Put the working cart with an update file for the broken one in the DS Lite.

    2 - Start it up, start the update file.

    3 - Take the working cart out, put the broken one in.

    4 - Tell it to apply the update.

    See if swapping the MicroSD at the time helps too, but if not try another update file. If that doesn't work I don't think there's a fix.

    From the site printed on the cart. Sometimes they have two update files (one for normal updating, one for hot-swapping to fix a brick like this), or an older update might work, etc.

    can you give me a mirror for it becuase their account is suspended.

    EDIT:
    They dont have a fix for brick its for update only. i guess there's no way to fix it?

    Yup, sounds like there's no way to fix it.
