    Put simply there are 2 different types of M3iZero cards

    The older style (non-Z003) cards and the newer style (GMP-Z003)

    I believe that the hardware inside is different between the 2 (look @ the pictures & you'll see the 'update power slot' is on a different side).

    Now I would guess that for ALL types of cards you will need the 'F_CORE.DAT' file (v1.8.2 - I think this is to bypass the latest 1.4.2 Nintendo update) on your MicroSD card, but you will ALSO need to use/run the 'M3GUpdaterPlus_142.nds' ONLY on the GMP-Z003 cards - perhaps the updating method for the GMP-Z003 cards is slightly different to that of the older style cards...

    ... I'm sure some1 else can confirm this (I only have the older type card)

    But did you see this new file espacialy for Z003, was out just after the 1.7.2 M3i Zero firmware not after the 1.8.2

    That is the reason what i wish to understand why they propose that files???

    And Where is the list about these bad SD card who give flashing issue!
