    Looks like the Cyclops Team is reading us after all! They are quick to respond to criticism, but when it comes to updating their cart... ;-) ah I'm just trolling, honest trolling. Don't take offense. Look at their answer directed to us:
    They have clarified that DSi mode support would be available as BETA "for properly dumped DSi-enhanced ROM’s". We'll see how that turns out, let's hope for the best! Now Cyclops team, since you're reading us so carefully:
    • LOWER YOUR GOD DAMN PRICES! Pretty please? :-) Yeah I know, at least I tried.
    • We know you're mad, but please still ship out a sample to our reviewer like you promised?
    • Contribute to the Homebrew Bounty to get the DSi homebrew scene started. You make so much profit with your overpriced cards, you can spare a few bucks for the people that will work for free creating homebrew that'll only work on your cart. Yay/nay?
    • We'd all love to see a video of the CycloDS iEvolution running a DSi-enhanced game!
    • Please deliver on that "Superior Technical Support".
    • From Etalon: People want to play Golden Sun on their regular CycloDS Evolution. But you must already know because you read our forums with much attention!
    • From Rubedo: "All I care about is whether or not they're still going to support the regular CycloDS evolution with game compatibility updates."
    There, we said it! Since they seem to be paying attention now, this is your chance to send them a message. Maybe they'll answer it in their next homepage update? So reply to this thread if there's something you want to say to the Cyclops Team!

    The Cyclops Team motto seems to be:
    All your $$$ are belong to us

    If anything, this needs to be done. This isn't 2004 or anything any more. Flashcards are dirt cheap. And not to mention, they're basically sending out a card that doesn't have all the features it's promised, no ETA when that will be done, and they're still charging us an arm and a leg for it.

    omg lol
    this post is funny

    i agree with it one hundred gazillion percent
    well we know that TC knows how many zero's there are in a gazillion

    @costello
    please fix the first post
    the first sentence should state
    "Don't take it offensively" instead of "Don't take offence"

    and below the quote box
    it should say
    "clarified" instead of "carified" - you forgot the l [​IMG]

    Yea, but what has sarcasm to do in an official gbatemp news? To be honest I expected a bit more professionalism.

    Well to be honest I first started with wanting to buy the iEvo, but all the fanboys blah, blah, blah....
    I think the cyclo fanboys was upset with TC for disappearing and not updating, so they took it out on the DSTWO and their users
    anyways, I even recommend people to wait and see what the iEvo had to offer before deciding on a dstwo.

    It took them more than 100 days to update the iEDge to DSi 1.4.1 and updating won't work when you've already updated your DSi to 1.4.1

    Cyclo-Edge thinks that people should wait 100 days for them, obviously.

    AFAIK, the Edge doesn't have any official ties with the Cyclops team. Also, I'm pretty sure it's just a knockoff Cyclo DS that doesn't have an internal firmware and doesn't have the in game menu feature.

    What? It's all the same.

    You know, if someone "steals" my firmware for two years, I'd do something to prevent this.

    Or maybe even write something like "Edge is evil, don't buy, plze" at my webpage.

    Cyclo never did anything like this. Cyclo & Edge is the same company, obviously.
