    It does everything, without it your cyclods wouldn't boot up at all [​IMG]

    Anywho this is a dump of the new cyclods bootloader that runs the firmware from the microsd right? if so i smell the edge having rts and ingame menu soon [​IMG]

    It is useless and now good to anyone , you might as well give the EDGE team a firmware dump of my TV and let them try and figure out how to make an ingame menu using that.

    I'm confused, what exactly is this and what is it meant to do?

    It can't be another firmware update surely!!

    No it is useful if it loads the cyclods firmware from the microsd instead of the internal memory the edge team can hack it to work on their cart MUCH easier and the bootloader provides them with the decryption they need to decrypt the cyclods firmware stored on the microsd

    It is useless as anyone who is anyone can easily dump a flashcard's firmwware using homebrew. So the EDGE team had been able to dump the CycloDS firmware anytime they wanted. This isn't exactly difficult stuff here. Also all this is the boot loader thats stored on the flashcart that loads the firmware on the MicroSD card.

    The cyclods has a bootloader like any other cart which is all that can be dumped by the rom dumper tools, the actual firmware is stored on a different on board memory chip which hasn't been dumped as far as i know, if this new version works the way i've been told it will load the firmware off the microsd meaning anyone could potentially disassemble the cyclods firmware [​IMG]
