    Hi everyone !

    I have a problem with my DSTT I just recieved from http://www.extremejeux.com/
    I tried with many firmwares (even those from the faq example) but none of them had worked.
    With or without the SD card, it's the same thing, my DS is blocked on the advertisement screen which stay a little white.

    What does it mean ? That my DSTT won't work at all ?

    Thanks a lot in advance [​IMG]

    First, format the microSD card, if its 2GB or less format in FAT, 4GB or more format in FAT32

    Copy an official Firmware first to test the card is working as it should.

    FRENCH version
    ENGLISH version

    Then copy a rom that we all know should work, NO NEW GAMES i.e. try Mario Kart

    Come back once you've done that and tell us what's going on.

    I got the same as I used to get [​IMG]
    I formated in FAT32 but it was done automatically I couldn't choose.

    What should I do now ?

    Thanks

    It should give you the option, what OS are you using?

    If your getting the same results even with Mario Kart and your using an Official Firmware, it's quite possible your DSTT card is faulty and needs exchanging.

    Is it a DSST? or a DSTTi?

    Also what DS do you have? a DS or a DSi?

    Could you post a picture or a vid of the white screens or say when exactly they happen?

    Try taking it in and out a few times and blow in there.

    Those pictures are not White screens, that is the DS startup screen

    Take out the flash card and blow into your DS's slot a few times and put the flash card back in and then turn it on again. This happens to mine occasionally.

    Yes it's the startup screen but not faded completly.

    I've tried many times, but blowing doesn't change anything :S

    Thanks nevertheless.

    Up.

    What could I do then ?
    I don't understand... :S

    It seems that my DSTT is not a fake, I looked throught the SD port with light and I think mine is true.

    Try applying slight pressure downward from the back of the card when inserted as you turn it on. Mine does that sometimes and that usually fixes it.

    WTF you guy are noobs!!! Don't answer if you don't know!!!

    Your DSTT Got tampered with by official firmware. (Yeah yours is a clone). But life is all good It still very good just flash it with fake recovery. http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=4086
    The problem is you have to use a working flashcart to do it or yours will just have work once it will do it... cross fingers...
    Install unofficial firmware also it wont brick your card http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=7377

    Yep, most definitely a fake. Either the DSTT itself is screwed, or it was zapped by fake-killer firmware. I'd get a refund either way and spend a little more to get an AceKard.

    Did you RUN the fake recovery?
    You need to run it in order to fix your card.
    If your card cant boot at all youll need another flashcard to fix this one.
    But it still good it not ruined. You can get refunded but it not worth it most of the time.
    Try to boot your card still you need it to boot only once.
    If this dont work buy another card to fix this one(or use your friend if you can)... youll have two

    Why you loose all this time?!

    Send it back to the shop and thats all!

    A linker must work directly, if it dont, send it back!

    Yeah, but the seller told me to come here and ask questions :/
    How can I fix it with another card ? Can I do it with a R4 ?

    Thanks.

    I just won it so I think it could be different.
    I asked him if I could change.

    By the way, this seller is somewhat your admin i think : Costello.
    That's why he told me to come on his site.

    Fix it with a R4 if you can; just run fakerecovery on other card and change card when asked.
    Sending back a card is often as much expensive as buying another. Better off buying another
