Does pressing Select+Start+Up freeze your ROM's?

    Okay, I was playing Robot Ninja Haggleman 2 on Retro Game Challenge using a clean (U) ROM on an AK2i (running AKAIO 1.8.6a), and I just pressed SEL+START+Up (cause I thought it was a cheat) and IT FROZE. Checked the cart contacts, tried again, FROZE. Tried it on Bleach - Blade of Fate: FROZE. Tried it on Bomberman: FROZE.

    Tried it on DSOrganize: Kept working.
    Tried it on Powder: Kept working.

    Can anyone else confirm this issue?

    Right, that doesn't happen to me for any ROM.

    Weird.

    I know mine's legit, as it has always been able to run AKAIO, even when 1.5 was brand-new.

    that's weird... it appears that my 999 ROM has frozen.
    Soma Bringer too... even the sound.
    Golden Sun gave me some graphic problems.

    neither saves were corrupted.

    mine's an AK2.1 with HWID 80 and running AKAIO 1.8.6a.

    Maybe it has something to do with HWID.

    Mine's 81.

    I'll see if AKAIO 1.8.7 does anything.

    81 is a very common ID, it's what I've got and I don't have these issues with other games, though I don't know what cheats you wanted to use.

    From Where???
    at this point you format the micro sd card, install 1.8.7, and try that 1 rom again to see if the same problem happens.

    i've had corrupted cards where everything worked but 1 homebrew. no matter what i did that 1 file did not work. format, test again, and everything works. msd cards are just that delicate. they weren't designed with flash kits in mind.

    It was with 3 CLEAN ROM's, and I didn't bother to test any more. Also, the ROM's work fine unless I press that combo, and homebrew is seemingly not affected.

    EDIT: I just tried Might & Magic - Clash of Heroes with the combo: FROZE.

    note that all my roms are trimmed.

    I've upgraded to AKAIO 1.8.7, but haven't tested it yet.
    My ROM's are all trimmed, too.

    On 1.8.6a, SM64DS was also confirmed to freeze with the combo.

    EDIT: AKAIO 1.8.7 did nothing to fix the problem.

    Maybe try a non-trimmed rom. Or try redownloading- maybe the rom is corrupted?

    Unfortunately I trimmed all of my ROMs, and getting more is not an option. Besides, all of the games function normally unless I press the combo.

    Perhaps you should stop hitting select+start+up as a combo since it serves no function except cheating, if they're on, and cheating is for pussies.

    the START + SELECT + up combo does have a function aside from turning on/off cheats.

    those buttons, when pressed together, may delete your save in no less than 3 Pokemon games, as far as i know, so Fishaman P could have discovered about the freezing issue without purpose. unfortunately it appears he/she did it for cheating.

    the trimmed roms aren't kind of a problem, because my games are trimmed too, all of them, and they do work flawlessly.

    i guess we should show this little issue to the bug reports section in AKAIO Forums, but only because the combo mentioned has a natural function which doesn't relate to the flashcards scene. the beta testers can give us a help.
