It doesn't? Does it not run CDI files? How did they mess that up so badly (considering it's an expensive premium price product)?


Gdemu creator added running of bleem when doing it.. Not really that great to me menu is closed src we have openmenu now and other things coming using Gdemu clone I dont see the point of over paying for it

have you turned the switch on your SD card to LOCK?
Please note, the LOCK switch is mechanical, if you use an SD extension cable it will not work.

Have you looked in GDMENU what firmware do you have?
I'm confused by the sticker with the written firmware version, it feels like someone covered the inscription 5.15 with a sticker
