    I get the feeling it's something that allows me to load three different firmwares, but how do I load each one or... am I getting something wrong? What I'm used to is Bliss' Multiloader for the Supercard which was pretty great. Turning on the system you'd get the SC main menu, but if while starting up you held "Y" it would go straight to moonshell.

    Is Triple boot like this?

    Triple boot is similar to that, there is a triple boot for the iTouch and the M3. Both packages allow the Sakura firmware, Touchpod firmware and iTouch firmware to be booted on one card however since the newer releases of Sakura have different encryption techniques only the older versions (1.12 I think) of Sakura are packaged with the triple boot archives.

    So with triple boot, how do you set it to load a given one of the three startup programs?

    If you have the triple boot, hold X or Y as it boots up. I can't remember which is which, but that will load either iTouch/M3 Real. Sakura is the default FW.

    Thanks, that's EXACTLY what I wanted [​IMG]

    Is there anyway I could get moonshell to load up instead if I wanted it to? Also is Triple Boot out for the M3i?

    Nope don't think so, but maybe in the future.(currently is double boot right) Wonder if there will be a community made firmware, such as akaio for the acekard.
