    1.4 fix for Supercard DSonei


    [​IMG]

    The Supercard team has released an update which let you use the DSonei on a DSi with 1.4 firmware
    The fix uses the header of the game 'Star Wars: Lethal Alliance', so the icon also has changed.

    You can update the DSonei with the included USB firmware writer, which takes about 8 minutes.

    8 minutes is quite a long time compared to the quick upgrade of Acekard 2i. o.o;

    A Star Wars game is a pretty big name; hopefully LucasArts doesn't come down on Supercard for this... I figured one of the reasons THQ games were chosen for the EZVi and Ackard was, perhaps, they figured the company might not be particularly litigious.

    Hopefully at some point in the future, a way is found to get these devices working again without using the icon/name of a real game.

    so it comes down to m3i0
    hope they have some surprise waiting for us (not the icon fix)

    From what I've read, Nintendo now also hash-checks the icons.
    If they do not coincide with any commercial game in the whitelisted games list, it automatically blocks the flashcard.

    And now to check the Supercard forums to see how the "ZOMG SUPERCARD ABANDONED US" people are doing. I swear, nobody knows the meaning of patience these days. "EZ-FLASH AND ACEKARD DID IT WHY CAN'T SUPERCARD DO IT ZOMG I JUST BOUGHT A HYPER-R4 BECAUSE SUPERCARD SUCKS AND THEY LIED TO US AND I'M NEVER BUYING FROM THEM EVER AGAIN *slitwrist* "

    So yeah. Might try this update myself eventually, though since I don't have a DSi it's not that important at the moment.

    EDIT: From reading the posts on the SC forum, it looks like this update only works for microSD cards up to 4 GB in size. Multiple people have reported that it doesn't work with 16 GB cards, and one person has reported it not working with his 8 GB card. This seems to be a fairly important fact that should probably be posted in the first post. Might help prevent future complaints.

    My supercard doesn't want to update, i put the bin file in my sd card root, then i put it back in my supercard and then i hooked my supercard to the writer, but the light stays red... , i'm using 4gig kingston

    never mind, there explanation sucked, instead of root you have to put the file in the system map; the firmware map

    If its just icons why dont the teams just use the icons and have the game names.
    also if thats the case what happens when a new game is made does 1.4 block it? no. so there must be more to it than that!

    The games aren't exactly on a whitelist. Instead, the hash stored in the header is validated by taking the icon and game title and running some algorithm. If the result is equal to the hash, then the game is ran, otherwise you get the 'failed to run' error.

    (That's just a guess [​IMG])
