    I was thinking about that unknown white disc with a USB port on it that's pictured with the CycloDSi, and I think I know what it is.

    It's a CycloDSi card reader. You can plug the CycloDSi card into it, and then plug the reader into a PC. That would let you update the firmware if a DSi firmware update locked the CycloDSi out.

    I also might be going out on a limb with this... but I'd say that the grey thing next to it is a something to stick into your computer...with a microSD card on the other end.

    And I'm guessing that the little white square thing is some sort of magical device that can let you play FREE GAEMZ!!!!


    But seriously, it flashes the card so it can deal with firmware upgrades.

    From Where???
    my source said that dsi kits will ship unflashed so that they are not "illegal." we have speculated that the device is hardware designed to allow the user to flash the kit with the dsi exploit. no one has said anything yet about it being just for dsi firmware updates.

    Apparently it wasn't just me. I kept reading questions on what it was. I missed the posts explaining it.

    Since it sounds like I'm right, I'm actually proud of myself that I was able to reason it out from just an obscure picture and little experience with the DSi or any DSi flashcard.

    you dont need to feel good with making a topic with the most useless question ever

    you should've just posted it on the current on going topic and you first post says that you THINK you know what it is

    you dont need to feel proud of something everyone knew what it was
    we dont need to reason it out of the picture cause we all know what its for
    look at the post's above what do they mean, have you even read them [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Topic closed. This can't end well.

    I think the back button on your browser is used to go back to the previous page, you may want to try it though.
