I added the 2.42 menu files (DSYSTEM and xmenu.dat) but it still says that it is running on 2.41 althought the whole apearence of the new menu looks like it should be 2.42. Is it actually updated? if not what should i do? could some1 run me though on how to upgrade properly?

Hmm.... the XMenu is the dat file, correct? isn't it then just enough to update the xmenu.dat file? or is there files to update in the firmware too?

Does this version have its built-in Chinese & Japanese character support using Moonshell font files?

 If not, is there a plan to release versions for these languages? 8)

Is there an option to use the 3d block menu or the N-Card title menu?

I'm receiving this error and it will not let me reformat the card:

Loading menu...
error: not format!

hold L+R+A+B+UP to make your MK5 low-lovel format.

I get "USB SAFE BLOCK D12(ADDR5)" when I do this.

EDIT: http://www.neoflash.com/forum/index.php/topic,4173.0.html  This thread help fix the problem.  Thanks guys.

Now that I can actually use the new update, it's much faster than before.  Two things though, the NDS icons are flipped horizontally and the background image on the bottom screen is the old top screen from previous updates.

Other than that, great update.
