Action Replay / Pokemon Black and White Version (JPN) Incompatability Discussion

Recommended Posts

I was able to find this file on the codejunkies site. It appears to be the .bin file for the 1.60 firmware.

http://us.codejunkies.com/nds_actionreplay/ArPro.firmware.1.60.bin

Hopefully it will help someone out when upgrading to 1.71. I am unable to test it at this time.

The link is for ARPro, is that different than a regular ARDS because it didn't work for me either. Still gave me the "Not a firmware image"

Currently have an older gen of AR DS that was 1.52. Now it's 1.54 after the update from the link recently posted. Strange thing is, when I tried to update to 1.60, I still get the "Not a Firmware file" message. Ugh. :/ I think I'll just stop beating a dead horse and go buy a ARDSi.

I was reading some things on datels web site and saw that they are no longer selling DS action replays in the US and they may not be anymore updates for it in the future T_T

here is the ARDS v1.55 see if this helps,

I know this thread is listed as JPN incompatibility but was the US version also included as an issue? I have what appears to be a v2 ARDS from the images linked before. It had firmware 1.54 and like everyone else can't write 1.6 or 1.71 to it. I downloaded this 1.55 firmware and threw it on. I copied the Pokemon White codes (again US) and just for kicks tried the complete pokedex code. The game started, I pressed select like the code said and it worked...

I shut the DS off afterwards as I didn't want to taint my game (yet), I have no idea if this information is of any value but I can keep doing some more fooling around with the 1.55 firmware. I also didn't try on 1.54 so I don't know if it also would have worked for some codes but not for others.

After upgrading to 1.55 I still was unable to upgrade beyond that, but that was an expected outcome, the newer firmwares just aren't supposed to be loaded onto this device.

I can confirm codes working for Pokemon White with a Gen 1 ARDS Firmware 1.55 (Tried Secret Trainer ID code, Wild Pokemon modifier code, and PokeGen created pogeys with success and no problems so far). Thank you for the link to the firmware update...I was tempted to buy the ARDSi earlier! :)

As it transpires you can't update from v1.54 to 1.60 because 1.60 is supposed to be pre-installed on certain carts.

Or download from the link posted by Pokemon_Breeder_Moo and follow the same steps as whichever version of the code manager you're using.

Also, another confirmation from a newbie about v1.55 working.
