    Ok if you want help, we're going to need wayyyyy more information.

    Firstly, WHAT FLASHCART ARE YOU USING?? Unfortunately, we're not psysic and we cannot tell. Skin files differ wildly between flash carts.

    Also how did you try to change the pic to something else? The problem is probably in there.

    I'm not sure about M3 Real, but maybe the name of the file has to be the same? Cuz every other flashcart I have is like that.

    And it still doesn't work? Iunno, try getting a skin from like NDSthemes and see if that works.

    Okay, so just try a different pic. And make sure that EVERYTHINg is exactly the same. Although I'm sure you did that already.

    I'm sure it's something to do with colours... try formatting the picture to 16 or 8 bits.
