    yes and no.....it can be reprogrammed, but not by the 3ds, you would need a jtag programmer and a FPGA update, you would also need to take the card to pieces to access the jtag terminals.......basically its doubtful it will ever happen....if anything they would just release a V2 that comes pre-programmed with a new FPGA update, but at this point gateway can make a new FPGA update every update, leaving clone users to keep buying replacement cards, unless they come out with a whole new revision....something like MT.....:ph34r:

    The pins on the back are probably for the first programming within the factory.

    Yeah because being able to play 3-4 more games and having multirom is enough for buying a whole new card ( Not)

    I don't get why people need so "desperately" to get their hands on 2.0 having a clone. Have they beaten already all the other games out there? I seriously doubt it because now with the gateway dumper even more games are getting out. Not to say that pokemon and AC without online are... loler

    I think multi rom is the most important thing. But then I don't care about pokeymans.

    Not afaik, was just responding briefly to the post above mine. Was going to say that not having multi rom was enough to put me off getting a flash cart, because I don't want to deal with multiple sd cards, and I got a lucky coincidence of timing, in that my latest strong interest in getting a 3DS and researching the flash cart options began just a few days before omega appeared, but I decided to be less long winded. Also I don't like pokeymans.
