    Since the CycloDS site is down... Can anyone post a copy of the 1.5 beta 3 firmware? That would help me out a lot. Thanks!

    A kind soul posted it here: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?s=&showto...t&p=1392772

    Have fun, and be careful!

    Edit: I uploaded it to GBAtemp's download center: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=3269


    I know that many of you will not read the ReadMe, so I'm posting what TeamCyclops says about their new "Battery Saver mode."

    Ill just wait till final. I don't need the battle saving function and plus seeing there are no other fixes other than battery/text reader.

    The new Battery Saver function may be worth trying. TC is keeping a tight lip on what exactly the feature is doing in the background, but a few users have reported a couple of extra hours of battery life.

    It's probably black magic. Team Cyclops is drawing battery power from the ever-burning inferno of Hell.

    Could be significant reduction in instruction/execution cycles. Not sure how many battery that will save but given that the only change is in the firmware, TC is limited to what can be done.

    My $0.02.

    TC comes through again. Now if only their forums would have a better uptime.

    The battery saver function must be directly connected to their server, and they've figured out a way to change ul/dl transfer to power!

    TC = GODS!

    Erm, seriously, i'm very curious in this! Thanks for the post! [​IMG]

    I've loaded the 1.5 beta3 2 days ago, have not seen any significant advantages yet since I've not been playing my DS that much. TC's website seems fine to me. I can access it now.

    Did you enable the battery saver feature in the config.xml? It (along with other advanced features) are disabled by default.

    Where is the thread on the TC Forums? I saw they redesigned the forums a bit, but now I can't find where the 1.5 beta 3 thread is. (yes I know the firmware is on gbatemp, just want to know where the thread is)

    I don't see anything about battery life in the settings. What is the config.xml?

    That depends on what version of firmware you're running. Hop on over to the forums and read through the 1.5B3 Beta thread.
