    I never said they were obligated did I? All I said was that it makes sense for people to be disappointed in a lack of updates and that it's not unreasonable to expect them. This isn't saying we're entitled to them at all, is it?

    Does anyone know what flashcards are reflashable? Or is that that we're waiting on?

    If you really want to know what's going on, I have reason to believe they're holding out for the homebrew bounty starting. Seems to make sense as a motive.

    That's something we're waiting on. We know that AK2i and DSTWO are reflashable but the installer won't be released for a while.

    Will reflashing a flash card delete all the data or something? Or how does that work?

    Gambia, The
    They are working on being able to restore the backup, too so that you can further use it as a flashcard as before.

    That's already possible, at least with decrypt9 and ak2i. You can make bootcode dumps and restores at will.

    This is plausible and makes sense. If that's the case we wouldn't have to wait that long either (Costello said the first Bounty is "this summer")

    Between insane and insecure
    Note how I said, "acting like," and even now you are still acting like they owe us something. This kind of exploit is extremely different from the previous exploit and it's actually best to keep it hush hush. Think about something for a second. When this exploit does get released, there's literally going to nothing stopping us from hacking our system(s), other than our wallets. This kind of exploit can't be patched as it involves the bootrom, meaning that OFW updates won't stop shit from here on out. This also means all compatible carts are going to be on huge demand. That's actually something to take in consideration when working on this. This could easily become one of the most Capitalized exploits out there and I wouldn't be shocked to see online store reflashing their carts to get some extra money out of this.
    This is a perfectly good reason to keep the progress under wraps until it's finished. Not to mention they are most likely aiming to get carts like the R4i SDHC, to keep the prices low for users.

    Now a good idea would to make actual NDS carts that are full featured brick fixers and exploit installer, that will install B9S from scratch and even fix bricks on its own. Nice UI, I could see something like that.

    Sorry, I think like a capitalist :P

    Some people would like to use the flashcart as it was intended or they own one already and use it. I could see the use.

    as someone already pointed out, this is already possible and secondly being able to revert defeats the purpose of having it in the first place, this is something you put aside for a rainiy day isnt it? Now if they can muster up dual boot then useful but to delay relaease?

    all good:)

    Ah, then maybe they are starting to hack Flashcarts that can't flash :0
    I can't think of another reason for such a feature if not.

    Except announcing progress would have nothing to do with online stores reflashing cards because they can't do this without an actual release. And regardless of if AK2i and DSTWO are announced as the only reflashable carts they'll still be in high demand when it's released. So neither of these benefits from not giving updates. You seem to be forgetting an update could be as simple as "Testing R4 compatibility".

    If only there was a tool that would allow you to overwrite data in an actual ds game cart, and actually flash one of those, its probably impossible though xD At least if it was possible, wouldn't there need to be an exploit in the game to allow it?
