Have spent the last 2 hours trying to update my DS’s firmware to RedCloud.
I have done this many times in the past 4 firmware’s and am familiar with the upgrade process.
Tried on 4 different newly FAT32 formatted SD Cards, 1 8GB, 1 4BG and 2 1GBs… all the same result.
When turning on the unit with the SD Card properly inserted with the RedCloud files, instead of the light blinking to commence the update it just boots up like normal no matter what.
I’ve tried unplugging the powercord for 10 minutes, then holding the front button to reset the PSU inside while its off and winding down. Still nothing, when I flip the back switch on, just a normal bootup. Also tried inserting the SD Card while its still on before cycling the power and also inserting the SD Card after it’s off and no difference, doesn’t start loading the new firmware no matter what.
Can’t see what it could be other than some kind of defect that has maifested itself with the SD Card reader in the back of the DS
Makes sense as I’ve had coverart issues. Could be that there is indeed an issue with the card slot?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
