    They did this just for the review. [​IMG] Because after reading the thread announcing that GBAtemp got it, i remember reading alot about no autoboot... Now i see that they updated that [​IMG]

    Very smart. If I was designing a flash card, I'd cram all the features I want into it. After that, I'd take some out and release the card with the slightly crippled firmware, updating it like crazy right after release with the features I had already intended to put on the flash card initially to get that positive publicity "FAST UPDATES!" and after everyone notices and buys my card, I disappear with the cash, never to update my card again.

    I wasn't trying to imply that this is what Team Cyclops was doing. I was just saying that that's what I would do, just because it's mean and nasty XD.

    if they really do it for the review, then i guess they will read this post too [​IMG]
    i hope that there will be a button(on the touchscreen in the main menu or an unused button on the ds) which can be used as a shortcut for homebrew or roms(via selectable path) [​IMG]

    i hope realtimesave will be included soon as well as the screenshot capture function. those are very useful - will those also work for homebrew?

    for now(if every feature listed on the site is 100% true) the cyclods evolution might be the best flashcard for now! i hope those sdhc cards will be cheaper soon, i need 4GB or better: 8GB [​IMG]

    can't wait to get my sample for review!

    Wow! The the autoboot and boot as passme features were added after my request! I'm so proud. Small features for sure, but it really impresses me that a flash kit company would add features like that (and so quickly) based on a user request. I'm buying a CycloDS for sure now. I'll still wait for the review just in case there's any hidden surprises, but sounds like a really solid card.

    I'm curious whether the Enhanced Mode features are available in homebrew, as well. I guess we could just ask. Imagine that, being able to ask the manufacturers of a flash card a question and actually expecting that you'll get a prompt and honest answer!

    That's exactly what I was thinking after I finished typing it.

    What are you talking about? No it doesn't. The Wiikey never got a update to begin with.

    There's no reason it will only work on a lite.

    Oh nevermind, I read somewhere that specifically only said lite. Now that I look at a different portion of their website it says both. /slaps forehead

    That's why I was confused, I couldn't possibly imagine why it would only be one and not the other.
