    [​IMG] CycloDS iEVO
    New Information
    [​IMG]

    GBATemp has secured a review sample of the CycloDS iEVO. While we wait for the sample to ship we asked a few questions about the first DSi-mode Flash Kit. We asked about DSi/DS mode confirmation, the G.U.I., and the possibility of a DSi Homebrew SDK. Team Cyclops has been very forthcoming and happily answered our brief questions.


    The idea of Homebrew being quickly ported to DSi mode is something that interests us very much. More information will be posted when it becomes available, especially anything which pertains to the SDK. The review will be started as soon as the review sample arrives, and will begin with a hands-on impressions post. Stay tuned tempers!

    Not to troll or start shit, but after Costello calling them out and stuff, I'm surprised they were still willing to send you guys a review sample.

    Being a fan and former user of the CycloDS Evo, this really interests me.

    I am pretty disappointed that no SDK will be releasedw, but if they have any plans to release native homebrew and emulators this may be a cart to seriously consider.

    Does this mean devkit pro will get an update soon ? [​IMG]

    They should also communicate a little about the FPGA+MCU. Will it able to run some code faster if it's used (ex: emulators) ?
    Will it have a SDK to handle it ?

    "Forthcoming".

    This is pretty good news, at first I was all "wtf no SDK?", but after reading that they're giving code to be integrated into the current devkits I got happier.

    I hope this thing isn't shipping via China or Hong Kong Post, or the 3DS will come out before it gets there. [​IMG]

    Not for me, for the price they're asking, and the lack of features for me, I'm skipping it.

    Why are they relying on people using their modified version of libnds?
    libnds is on the same level as libwifi, they both should be completely rewritten from scratch to fix the inefficiencies and to give them the full functionality that's required in most homebrew. MenuDO had to use custom kernel support per-flashcard just to replace libnds.

    If the CycloDS team are so great, what is the real reason they are not releasing a SDK?

    I agree; good news, and good that you've managed to secure a sample. What jumped at me was that it should be "forthcoming", not "fourth coming". Quite a difference.

    "Changes required to get homebrew functioning properly in DSi mode are actually quite minimal". I think this is a clue that other cards can be simply updated to do the same thing as this iEVO card. [​IMG]

    Pretty nice card from the looks of it. Too bad no SDK is going to be released any time soon though.
    Can't wait for another excellent GBAtemp review!
