    I didn't know, they have a pretty junk website, but I looked them up on Linfox Domain firmware/software archive.
    http://linfoxdomain.com/nintendo/ds/

    They update frequently. Their last was 11 days ago. They just haven't update yet. It's the day after the rom release of a highly anticipated RPG bound to have some presumably rather solid form of AP. An immediate fix is not a reasonable expectation for that card IMO, but they'll probably have one in a reasonable amount of time.

    Between insane and insecure
    Personally I just think the M3 Team is slowly dieing off compared to the other teams. Their updates have become fewer and fewer, their updates still don't do what they say they do, and really they just aren't as good as they used to be. Hell even the R4 has a more active team these days.

    So just thank toro to have created YSM3 and the base of WoodM3...

    My M3 is not recognized so often. If it stops working, I'll buy R4iSDHC RTS to avoid GMP-Z003... Possibly iSakuReal will work...

    all the rage right now is 3rd party firmware it seems

    Supercard team is active
    and I think the EZ FLash (sort of)

    pretty much every other team is dead / takes forever to roll out updates like the m3 team...

    luckily we have Xenon++ putting 3rd party firmware (as well as first party) onto the m3 real/zero and such

    back to the topic
    you will see a itouch update whenever the m3 team updates m3 sakura

    I doubt they ever release anything new, other than maybe a kernel update when the carts get blocked again.

    Agreed. Really unfortunate, but it seems to happen with just about all of 'em. We had a good run for a while though, and Sakura makes for a very pretty UI. I've been holding out for a native solution to Super Scribblenauts, but I'm just not so sure.

    I don't see one happening for a while. For now I'm just going to use WoodM3 for those troublesome games.

    I think they just have too much on their plate

    m3 real/m3i zero
    itouchds 1/2
    g6 real (this is why touchpad is still updated)
    a couple of r4 clones

    I wish they would just focus on m3 sakura

    Well actually, the reason touchpod is still updated is because Sakura still uses the same ENGINE as touchpod. I think there are only two cards who's teams are still actively updating the firmware on a regular basis and that's SuperCard team and Edge team.
    Every other current firmware for any other card is a 3rd party firmware, which the m3 cards need! We need a fully native 3rd party firmware just like Acekard has AKAIO!

    nope, Sakura just updates to the the same Game ENGINE as touchpod (which comes out first)..Sakura doesn't need any part of Touchpod to survive or function
    and what makes a Team dead when they don't release a firmware for 1 1/2 month? what about 1 that doesn't release an update like every 3 months AKAIO???

    lol. That's incorrect. Go and try deleting TouchPod files then.

    Sakura is just a modified Moonshell that boots ROMs through TouchPod.

    You can do the same with YSMenu on DSTT or Akaio on Acekard. But it works better and faster there.

    do you actually know which files are for Touchpod and which ones are for Sakura??
    deleting all touchpod files won't make Sakura non-function

    AK-AIO 1.7.1 (14th-07-2010):
    AKAIO v1.8.0 (14th-10-2010)
    exactly 3 months
