    In order to fix it, you'll need a DS or DS Lite, and another flash cart. You'll start up the update program on the other flash cart, then take the other cart out, put the broken cart in, and tell it to apply the update.

    Again, you will need an original DS or DS Lite. The DSi, DSi XL, 3DS, and 3DS XL will not allow you to swap carts.

    Sorry to bring this topic back from the dead, but my friend has a flashcard these and am having the same problem.

    While the card was updating, I turned it off unintentionally. Still have how recover it ?
    I have a DS Lite and an R4 original, where do I download the update to try to recover it?

    Put the update file on the original R4, and start the update program, then take the R4 out and put the broken cart in, wait a few seconds, then tell it to run the update.

    If it's not on the official site then it likely doesn't exist.

    I downloaded a file update (fwupv20a.nds) and when I ran it with the R4 Original (old one) said that the file update the old version was not compatible. Any idea? D:

    If it's doing the check on startup (before you tell it to run), I don't know what to do.
