    Thanks man, much appreciated.

    It shows that there's some kind of flash memory on it, which contains the 3DS game. If that's rewritable, that's anyone's guess.

    At least it proves that it's not a real 3DS cartridge butchered to fit a microSD slot + ASIC on it.

    It's just to avoid customs detection by fitting it into the USB microSD card reader.

    It proves that it does indeed come with the stylish pink designer casing that houses both the flashcart AND adapter in an excessively inconvenient shell.

    The Price for this 3DS game is expensive than ACE 3DS PRO cost.

    Look at the Flag...
    Last picture is the most interesting, but quality is not so great, can't see if the big flash chip on the back is a chip taken from a retail 3DS cart or a generic one.

    The card innards look a bit different then usual, more then the scds2, but maybe just made cheaper and needs space to hold the 3ds rom, guess we should know sometime soon.

    Edit: you would think if it was flashable the guy would have shown another game tho, right?

    Edit2: Someone who knows chinese can prob explain this better to us but here is this http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&eotf=1&u=http://bbs.duowan.com/thread-30646614-1-1.html&act=url

    Seems, 3ds mode (ONLY THE BASEBALL GAME NOT FLASHABLE CURRENTLY) only works on japanese 3ds. Says maybe in the future it can be flashed.

    Edit3:http://translate.googleusercontent....o.html&usg=ALkJrhi7HH_hSUgpiKO2mZni4yuS4658vw

    "Was developed from Ace3DS team, currently, support one genuine 3DS Game, the future, you can start a 3DS game a lot more."

    We will see when it happens lol.... also 4,999 yen = $50 usd or so.

    I still think it's not a bad step in the right direction. If they somehow can get the chip to be reflashable... Well, one can wish and hope. :)

    Well, they must've programmed it somehow in the first place, so it's the right step in the right direction. They just need to add a header for an external programmer or something. That's IF the flash isn't directly taken from a 3DS game (but that wouldn't make sense in the first place).

    Unless they plan to release a app that runs in ds mode and flashes the rom to the chip somehow ;)

    Tho my guess is that they are completely separate and this is impossible. And they plan to sell as as many as they can by selling false hope in a update that will never come.

    Will be interesting to see if the days of counterfeit 3ds cards is coming.(If they can make these really cheap, and support for many games it is only a matter of time.)

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    The last image seems to reveal they just strap 1 3ds ROM to the back of a flashcard and normal flashcard circuitry to the front. Nothing exciting.

    A bootleg game requires them to turn a profit on it ($2 memory chip and that's it), buying crap games and desoldering the memory chips just to resolder on a flashcard doesn't make any business sense. They're just flashing generic chips, I'm sure of that.

    This must be akin to what Crown3DS was doing. The flashcards probably need to be adapted in a fashion similiar to the original cartridge, which is why Crown3DS failed dismally after checking out that they had to create a separate flashcard version for each game "chip config" out there.

    This is what I thought too, the ability to flash generic chips would allow them to bypass the region lock too
