    [​IMG] CycloDS iEvolution: the first DSi Mode Flashcart!
    Allows full use of DSi Mode: camera, SD card, full CPU...
    According to Team Cyclops, their new DSi cart, the CycloDS iEvolution will have as the first cart ever, support for exclusive DSi features such as the camera and SD access. The cart will run in DSi mode and take advantage of the hardware of the DSi, including the full CPU clock. The CycloDS iEvolution also enables exclusive DSi homebrew, that wont work on another flash carts. Team Cyclops will support the DSi homebrew scene by providing developers free units.

    As promised, Team Cyclops are proud to announce a revolutionary feature for their soon to be release iEVO flash cart. Competitor’s devices which support the DSi, currently work only in DSL mode, which means that the unique to DSi features such as camera and SD access are not functional. The iEVO will be the first flash cart in the market to enable this functionality, starting with homebrew applications and later support for commercial ROM’s. There are many potential uses for these features and we’re sure that the Homebrew scene will be delighted to support this functionality.
    Team Cyclops will gladly supply legitimate Homebrew application coders with a free iEVO unit to aid development. Please send an e-mail to support@teamcyclops.com for more information.[/p]

    I knew it, I fucking knew it.

    Feel like such a bum ordering the DSTWO :/, I guess this will come in handy once I get more cash (hopefully for christmas).

    I can't wait to see all the people laughing at the SC2fanboys.

    On a more serious note though, that's great! Free kits for devs too. [​IMG]

    If this is real and they did what they said they did, then it might just be worth the god awful price tag they are going to put on it

    This might be the ultimate flashcart.

    If it can truly unlock the extra processing power and extra memory, then emulators on DSi would certainly be better than on SCDS2. The same applies to homebrew movie player.

    I was planning getting one to begin with, but this is actually quite a big advantage if it's true.

    I wonder how long it will take before the other flash carts makers reverse engineer this and make their own DSi-mode flash carts.

    I don't know if they will, with the 3DS coming and whatnot.

    I think it's getting close to being pointless now since as said before the 3DS is on it's way.

    Well if the rumor regarding the DSi common key is true, then likely never since they would need the key as well. I dont think that TC would provide their competitors the key, wouldnt they?

    If this is true it might actually be worth the money otherwise the iEvo will most likely be a flop.

    This makes a lot more sense. But what if the R4 team kidnaps and tortures the info out of Team Cyclops? [​IMG]

    Why people expect the 3DS to be cracked early? Lets face it, there wont be 3DS homebrew at least for the next 2 years.
