    Got it.

    The developer should come up with an easier way to make his product work.

    What do you mean? It’s easy :)

    Just patch and install.

    If you think about it, it is Evercade who is (naturally) protecting their device from potential issues, however this simple method allows for so much more.

    The ability to homebrew on any system you own is always so tantalising. :)

    I don't think it's that easy with so many people -myself included- having issues.

    I'm very thankful for all you hard work but I get the feeling the developer isn't doing much to improve his own product.

    Evercade is of course protecting their device, but the Eversd dev is not doing the same with his if he relies on the scene to do his job.

    I finally got it to work, but unfortunately, don't have any info that would help anyone else.

    I tried with a different computer. I started with re-downloading everything from the 1st post to the other computer (except the patch without exFAT support since it has been removed from anonfiles... re-up please?). No matter what I did, the other computer would NOT patch the firmware using the BETA2 with exFAT. I was getting the same error as others here "Xdelta3: target window checksum mismatch: XD3_Invalid_Input". I tried naming the files involved to names with 8 characters or less, with no spaces or special characters of any kind.

    Finally, I gave up on that and copied over the already patched firmware from this computer. I tried on this computer as well and it would patch with the BETA patch, but not the BETA2.

    Back on the other computer, I chose not to install any drivers yet and see how whatever drivers were already installed would perform (I had drivers installed from a few years ago when I was customizing my Atari and Genesis Flashbacks (2017 models) but I don't know what version of drivers).
    I connected the Evercade in flash mode and it was detected. I started the Upgrade and it immediately started making progress and finished a few moments later.

    So, one computer would not patch the firmware and the other would not flash the firmware, but between the 2 of them, I got my Evercade working with the EverSD.

    Yeah, that doesn't sound too easy. XD

    Silly question, but will flashing this firmware put any of my save states at risk? Or are those only stored on the cartridges and have nothing to do with console firmware?

    Ive tried this method and I think I have bricked my device.
    It's a BIG risk and I may have just wasted 80 quid on a unit plus 20 quid for this Eversd only for it to be unusable. Sad times.
    Cheaper to buy the official cartridges. At least we get support for it.

    Absolutely. Don't like this botching just to get my EverSD to work. I'll stick to PC emulation instead, at least I'm not wasting my money then.

    Hmm I had no issues with this. Have you tried reflash the official firmware to it in recovery mode? (Hold menu button when turning the unit on).

    @Excalibur007 i just used one Windows 10 64 but laptop. IDK if windows latest update has nerfed something but people are complaining about the latest windows update in general.

    My laptop last updated last year, so I haven’t run into these issues.

    The Eversd is way more expensive than 20 quid.

    I didn't really think of it being a Windows issue, but maybe. This one is Windows 8.1. The one that worked without issue was Windows 7. But it was likely just driver flakiness.

    BTW, I found a version 1.20 of the firmware. I haven't installed it, but if anyone else wants to downgrade, there's actually a review of the Evercade on this site that has a link to the older firmware at the bottom.


    What recovery methods have you tried so far?

    I've bought all the carts so far and love them. My favorites are the 2 Atari Lynx carts and they are what I spend most of my time playing on the Evercade. The reason I bought an EverSD was to be able to play the rest of the Lynx games that haven't been put on carts.

    Please could you link to that review, to check I'm looking in the right place? The review page I looked at doesn't seem to have a link to 1.20 f/w (or I'm missing it!)

    Or is it possible for someone to upload official 1.20 here?

    I've tried to patch with beta2 on several PCs now and all gave the invalid input error. They are all running windows 10.

    I'm now stuck at the firmware flashing part. I've tried every rockchip driver version available and all I get is the "test failed" warning. This on windows 7 and windows 10. Man, what a nightmare.

    And by the way, after receiving the actual cartridge today, what a piece of crap it is. It's poorly 3D printed and it doesn't even fit properly. It's a chore to slide it in and especially to take it out.

    This thing doesn't cost 45 euros and IMO the guy who reviewed this product on the site was overly enthusiastic.

    I like the EverSD, but my biggest gripe is the lack of any menu system. You HAVE to put png images on the SD card to go with your games or else you get a blank screen and have to guess what you're choosing. I do NOT like the way the Everloader software formats the images either (majorly rounding off the corners), so I've been doing them myself. I made a theme that I think is nice and clean (similar to the official carts) and have been slowly compiling everything for the Atari Lynx. I finally got finished with the "handheld" versions of the images and realized I need to do it all over again for the HD TV images. :ohnoes: :lol:
    I'll share my pack when I finish (without roms), but it won't be today... or tomorrow. It'll take some time.

    Good afternoon, I have tried on 4 different computers and always the same error
    "Xdelta3: target window checksum mismatch: XD3_Invalid_Input". I have combined the names and other solutions that are given in the forum and it doesn't matter. If someone could pass me the firmware already patched by private or the beta without exfat support to test if this works I would appreciate it.
    I'm going crazy.

    "Firmware patch xDelta" is a dead link, can we please have it removed?

    "Firmware patch xDelta with exFat support" is a pile of spamware/malware, including SAntivirus Realtime Protection (high on the malware list & doesn't uninstall when you ask Windows to do so...), and worse yet, no IMG file at the end of all those hoops for me.

    Can someone please post a link with the valid IMG file & no spamware?

    FYI, if you accidently clicked "yes" to installing some of the garbage in that xDelta patch, then Google for "Malewarebytes", it's a highly rated AntiMalware program, and will chuck the xDelta spamware from your pc.
