    Hi all,

    Been a long time since i came here, but just had a look around to see what the last update for the M3 DS Simply was, and I was surprised to find it not mentioned in the "Ultimate Flashcart Download Index" .

    Can anyone offer their thoughts on what is best to give my DS lite a new lease of life for my daughter?

    I read about putting "woodR4" firmware on it, is that still good advice?

    TL;DR: The problem being that most ROMs I tried earlier didn't load, so assume I need to upgrade the firmware (currently on 1.07) on the M3 DS SImply, but can't see it mentioned anywhere.

    That is a false flag. I just downloaded it myself and scanned it

    As well I am one of the admins of filetrip, just saying.

    Ah ok, cheers :) turned off real time protection from Win defender to unzip the files :)

    Can I assume I just paste the contents of the archive into a blank SD card? Bit thin on the ground on 1 and 2GB sd cards, everything knocking around my house is 8GB+ these days, how times have changed :rofl2:

    Answered my own question, placed the files you pointed to on my sd card and wham bamma! works great with the ROMs which wouldn't work with the Moonshell OS! Thank you for the help, love this community :)
