EvoCheatUp - Automatic Cheat File Updater is a modified version of UsrCheatUp v0.9, which was created by Giovannin. It allows user to automatically update cheat file to the latest version via the in-built Wifi of the Nintendo DS.


Download and extract file.

Place the EvoCheatUp.nds file anywhere on MicroSD card.

Place the EvoCheatUp.ini file into the root directory of MicroSD card.

User guide

Some patches are required for some flashcard users:

For R4DS users and its clones:

  • Use R4BugFix2 patch for the R4DS kernel that makes the cheats work.
  • Drop _DS_MENU.DAT file from the R4 kernel on the r4bugfix.exe program and it will patch it.
  • Alternately, copy the file to the same folder as the r4bugfix file and click the execute. Afterwards, place the patched _DS_MENU.DAT file on flashcart.
  • Also, as with updating firmware, it is suggested deleting the _DS_MENU.SYS file and allow the R4DS to recreate it to prevent problems.

For M3 Real users and its clones:

  • Cheat.db needs to be placed in SYSTEM folder (Since it's the default) and others can be placed anywhere.
  • Find the pre-patched _DS_MENU.DAT file here for the R4DS kernel.

Usage for R4DS and M3 Simply

On MicroSD card, find the folder called _system_.

Delete old cheat.dat and usrcheat.dat from that folder (backup to your PC if necessary).

Place the new cheat.dat inside the _system_ folder.

Avoid overwriting as that can cause some codes to fail to appear on flashcard. Remove the old dats first, then add the new one. Do not use both the cheat.dat and usrcheat.dat together. They are the same dat, the only difference is that the usrcheat.dat is not encrypted.

For cards that use one of the other files in this archive, refer to flashcart's documentation as to where to put the file and what the name of the file should be.
