    Tempers to your cars. The race has begun. Hurry, Nintendo's in lead.

    So far only 2 flashcard manufacturers stated as a feature to their card that they will work around Nintendo's "possible" FW updates. That "possible" nightmare has now become reality. So the M3iZero & SuperCard DS ONEi should be coming with update soon. Or will the AKAIO Team pull out as the underdog and release an update before anyone else does (Not Likely but that would AWESOME [​IMG]). Yet, there is still hope from the CycloDS Team and they may triumph with their new release of the CycloDS card for the DSi, still to be announced.

    Who knows? its anyone's game now.

    I don't know, I just keep thinking that there is a VERY simple solution to this problem, especially for those who have the "i" carts that don't even have the possibility of being updated to ever work again on the DSi.....shelf the DSi and get yourself a DSlite. Those "i" carts WILL work in a DSlite, and it's not like any of those carts unlocked DSi mode anyway. And at this point, none of the DSi-enhanced games have been worth bothering with, so as far as flashcart use and piracy is concerned, what would you really miss about the DSi beyond the larger screens? You could just use the DSi for legit stuff for the time being.


    Hey, I was just thinking......wasn't it some fishing game or something like that which was used as the bootstrap to get "i" carts working? I wonder, does the legit version of that fishing game still work in a DSi? I don't know, I thought that was an interesting question to pose.

    My M3i0 is detected on my dsi, but when you try boot you get an error message.

    I think its cleverly released with Flipnote Studios round the corner!! ( Fingers Crossed ) [​IMG]

    Same here mate - but I aint risking updating my DSi to 1.4 to find out. Besides, Facebook is just another fad & I don't need a faster camera function.

    Nuff said [​IMG]

    i was wondering why it took so long to load GBAtemp...

    well, still using the old DS lite, so no effect for me.

    however, it seems like Nintendo is really set on taking on flash carts (and for good reason).
    my guess is that it'll get unblocked, that's what always seems to happen.

    let's see how they respond.

    I foresee this being a very frustrating fight for DSi users and cart makers in general, considering they can make updates mandatory and frequent, so cart makers don't have time to send a fix before the next update rolls out.

    It's just the whole "Japanese will always be smarter than ANY Westerner" statement I find offensive. Just because someone is from a particular race or culture does not guarantee that they will be smarter than another. While on average, it may be true, there are ALWAYS exceptions. There are many Westerners who DO start learning from the cradle, because, you know, their parents actually CARE.

    That being said, they've apparently done an impressive job with the copy protection and whatnot.

    Even though the 1.4 isn't out here, I'm glad I didn't buy a flashcart. I'll probably wait for an exploit anyways, it will only be a matter of time and progress is looking like it's coming along fast at this point. So I'm hoping this just comes now for the faster camera XD (although I don't have Facebook and don't plan to get one either)

    Nintendo is Japanese too you know... XD

    The EZ Flash Vi will be fixable once a new hole is found, right?

    out of nowhere....

    I believe Nintendo are using a western company to provide the next level of copy protection to the DS cartridges, so how exactly does that make the Japanese cleverer than the westerner ? pretty racist remark if you ask me.

    MORE SMARTER ROFL, that was quite a way of putting it, it should be "they are always smarter*

    Anyway that is the most retarded thing I've ever heard, there will alway be people better at thing, its not defined to a race on who can program better, it the person with the most Vision and inspiration that wins most of the time in this world.

    I knew this was going to happen before Flipnote was released. I actually checked Monday (27th) to see if the update was available. Flipnote will be released next Monday (3rd) so US will probably get the update before or on that day. I plan on getting Flipnote so I'll have to update. I don't have a DSi flashcart, but I don't think I'm going to get one anyway. I'll just fix my DS Lite and use that.

    I'm glad to see some improvements as well. The camera did seems quite slow, but it didn't bother me much. I wondered when they were going to add an upload feature. I mean they did include an SD slot so why not? I see it's limited to facebook though. This shows it's possible for it to be a standard feature for online usage.

    Well this sucks. Unless you have a japanese Dsi and Flipnote studio is already out so you have no bribe. They know everybody wants it and so their releaseing them simotaniously. I was really looking for to it but now i cant use it [​IMG]
