If an Evercade has a firmware revision higher than 1.2 installed, it must be patched via EverPatcher for the EverSD to function with it. Before doing so, ensure that you have the latest Evercade firmware patching driver installed onto your computer by downloading the official firmware update tool and installing the driver via the EvercadeUpdaterLauncher.exe application. After this is done, begin the patching process by downloading and removing EverPatcher from its ZIP archive. After running the program, put your Evercade into Flash Mode by turning it off, connecting it to your computer via USB, and turning the device on with the menu button simultaneously held down until the attached device sound is heard. After clicking the PATCH! button on your computer and waiting for the patching process to finish, you may unplug your now patched Evercade.
