    1. Could you download & try DSLinux for GBA Movie Player from http://kineox.free.fr/DS/ , put it on DS-X, boot it and in case it boots up okay type 'ls'? I'm anxious to hear the results. [​IMG]
    2. Also, could you try to boot a file from DSOrganize? I want to know what device is DS-X recognized as ...

    Thanks!

    3. Most importantly: Does it fully support Japanese games? (Judging from the " fail to boot Pokemon Dimond" review" ... I was really worried)

    It´s not a region problem.
    It´s an EEPROM default size problem, PKMN needs 4MB, DS-X have only 2MB.

    So that means it is impossible for DS-X team to fix? How many games required a 4MB EEPROM size so far? I know it's hard to answer...

    But I'm going to purchase my first backup device (G6, M3, or DS-X) for the upcoming game such as Contact, and FF3. So I have to make sure those games will work on DS-X.

    Ah, thanks. This mean DSLinux won't run either. :'(

    Jessking: I think Pokemon is the first DS game to use 4Mb EEPROM ...
    And it's not impossible to fix - they'll just have to either compress the savefile (sounds somewhat impossible) or force the game to save directly to flash.

    Yes so far PKMN it´s the only game which uses 4MB EEPROM, and the DS-X have dynamic EEPROM memory, so in theory it can be fixed with just a firmware update. [​IMG]

    I´ll go for the DS-X too [​IMG]

    Does DS-X support GBA games? I've heard no mention of it at all - so I am assuming no.

    I don't believe any Slot 1 device supports GBA games.

    I've tried a couple of different versions of Nintendogs and the .sav file is corrupted each time I restart the game. All the other games I've tried work . My girlfriend and I both have unflashed ds-lites and download play works flawlessly. Has anyone else had the same problem with Nintendogs on the DS-Xtreme?

    I have experienced some problems with corrupted save slots. It seems that the save to slot 1 overwrites part of slot 2 and hence it believes it is corrupted and deletes the slot 2 save. I found however that overwriting the other slots with actual save data fixes this.

    So save a game in Slot 1, and then copy that to the other available slot and the errors should cease

    I experienced problems with Children of Mana and NSMB

    Just a question for the reviewer; in the review it says nds mail runs fine on the ds-x. However I tried version 0.45/0.47 and the latest 0.49 and non of them run, they give a 'check init' message and then just hang.

    So what version did you use? I'd like to get it working on mine too.
