    A long time ago, I dumped every single ds game and flash card I had for future reference. I tried running some flashcard dumps on my AceKard before and it would only blackscreen or crash. Now, since the recent AKAIO update I've noticed my CycloDS Evo dump (titled PASS_ASME00) says the following:
    CycloDS Evolution Recovery Mode
    HW ver: F.0 - HW region:ÂÂ194
    ERROR:ÂÂSelf-tests failed
    Press A to load from MicroSD
    After I press A it says:
    Loading 'update.evo'...
    File not found. Abort!
    So that leads me to believe if someone had an update file then something interesting might happen...or it could brick my card. Anyone care to guinea pig? By the way, if it makes any difference I ran this under Moonshell with the Moonshell-All-In-One package.

    well that seems to be the recovery feature on the Cyclo DS

    if you were to have a real card you put the update.evo in your microSD root and it would update the internal memory from that.

    update.evo is just a firmware update.

    I don't expect it to work but it probably wouldn't kill your card either.
