    Pretty self-explanatory title...

    I've found a few DSTWO extensions that let you supposedly run Wood kernel on the DSTWO card. Tried all of them and it gives me a "R4 not support SDHC" message. I even tried using the files from the blue Gateway card (which as we all know is a R4 knockoff and using the 'cracked' Wood files)... still the same error about not supporting SDHC even though I have a 8GB card in my Gateway card.

    Has anyone gotten something to actually work? I just ask because as much as the Evolution OS is cool, it seems a lot slower and more annoying to use than Wood and AKAIO (both of those are basically the same anymore).

    Wood R4 can only support regular microSD. ( <= 2GB)

    That extension emulates the R4 flashcart and thus is subject to the non-sdhc limitation.

    Then how are the knockoff cards that Gateway, MT-Card and other using doing it? Those support SDHC just fine...

    They're using the R4i-Gold version of Wood firmware, which does support SDHC. The DStwo emulates the R4 original cartridge so it has to run regular R4 Wood firmware. Neither the R4 orig or its version of Wood can support SDHC.

    So... can I emulate the R4i-Gold version? :P

    I think I have something like this set up on my 16GB firmware. Let me double check and make sure it's actually Wood.

    EDIT: Nope, some sort of heavily modded moonshell. There are a few of these that act like complete menu replacements.

    Why would you? The DSTwo has perfect compatibility

    Does it at least look like the Acekard or R4s?

    It has perfect compatibility, but the UI sucks and it's slow and clunky. Way slower than Wood and AKAIO are. And much more obnoxious to enable cheats as well.

    I think EOS is fine and not that much slower.
    You are overreacting, the cheats work fine too.
    You will not be able to find any of the latest versions running on the dstwo.

    Also you'll lose the ingame menu and extra features like free cheat.
    I think you're being kind of spoiled and lazy.

    If you really think EOS is in need of improvement, make a list and email the devs about it.
