    I have been experiencing a freeze issue when opening menu in both CATSFC and NDSGBA emulators. Not sure what is causing it or know a fix for it. Anyone else experience this and/or know a fix? Thoughts/help GREATLY appreciated :)

    Anyone experience this and know a solution? Been having this issue ever since I got my SC DSTwo about a year ago... :(

    the EOS (1st link) is the kernel, just download it and extract the _dstwo folder to the root of your microSD. as for the 2nd link, the firmware, download it and extract the dstwoupdate.dat file to the root of your microSD as well, boot your DSTWO and it'll automatically prompt you to update.

    make sure the power is connected so you don't run out of battery halfway through. shut it down after it's done, delete the dstwoupdate.dat file and give it a go.

    Ok, thanks :)
    Is my freezing issue a known issue? Also, would this fix it (The EOS and FW Update)?

    yes, it is. it's a known issue with the last batch of DSTWO carts. the 1.14 EOS and 1.25 firmware were released specifically to address this issue.

    if it doesn't fix yours then it could be an isolated problem or worse, a defective cart.

    I updated FW and EOS, freeze still happens in both NDSGBA and CATSFC; but playing DS games is fine. What else can I do? Is there still a fix? Thoughts/help appreciated :)

    like I said, other than a configuration mishap (are you using the latest NDSGBA/CATSFC?), it could be an isolated problem or a defective cart.

    you should try the DSTWO forums, maybe email the team and hope for a reply.

    I have already tried the DSTwo forums, but how do I email the team? What is their e-mail address?

    Also, is there a way to reset SC DSTwo to factory settings/firmware or anything? My mSD card is in FAT32, is that correct?

    I am still having issue and tried everything I can think of. Is there a way to do a clean/fresh reinstall of DS Two OS/Firmware? Thoughts/help greatly appreciated :)
