    Hi, I received today my SC DSTWO from zonavirtual.es, and I was surprised when I realized that both the box and the cartridge have a blue label printed that says Diascoazul.com. It is very weird because I have read around 20 reviews of the DSTWO all around the internet, and I haver never seen a packaging or cartridge like this. Here you have a couple of pictures:

    I have put it into my 3DS XL and seems to fit well. I also updated EOS and it is working fine, if it was a clone, that would be possible?. Does anyone know if SuperCard have made any "customized" DSTWO for stores like this one? Any way to find it out if it's a clone?

    Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english!

    Whats the website address on the box?

    It looks to be a real cart with some advertising branding are the stickers for Discoaz removable?

    1. It seems that Discoazul.com is the web where zonavirtual.es (the online store where I bought the flashcart) bought them.

    2. Nope, there is only one sticker in the cartridge, and the logo in the packaging is printed.

    There isn't any manual in the box. In the back there is a link to www.supercard.sc

    That's the point, if it is a modified original, I am ok with it, it will work the same way, but if it is a clone... What do you think? Should I return it and ask for my money back?

    I suggest opening the card and looking at the hardware. There should be a small screw in the back of the card and it should come apart really easily if you remove it.
    Then check the hardware and compare it to this
    http://gbatemp.net/t...-dstwo-review#c

    If it's not same, then it's mostly a clone.

    If it is the same, then most likely they just printed their label on the box and card to advertise their site like jerks.

    I also suggest if you bought it off a site suggested through shoptemp or GBAtemp, reporting the site for modifying the card.

    EDIT: I also suggest updating the card and such using the files from the official forum

    This is the picture provided by The Catboy:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    And this, is a picture of my cartridge (I did it the best I could):
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    In my picture is nearly impossible to see the text in the bigger chip, but it says:
    Actel
    ProASIC3
    A3P060
    VQG100

    I don't know what to think, I've never seen a flashcart clone, it seem the same chip to me, but, a newer version? The A3P125 of the fist picture doesn't match with the second, also the numbers in the bottom left and bottom right of the board don't match...

    I think that at this point, only a member of SC team can answer this question...

    Hmmm....the possible first cloned DSTWO?

    I know you reported this to the Supercard team and i'm also interested in what they say.

    I don't recall the SC team making any revisions on the DSTWO :unsure: I could be wrong or they could have done it without telling anyone.
    I'm interested in what the SC team is going to say.

    Actually mine's different from the reference too. Mine's one of the GBAtemp-branded ones, and I'm pretty sure it's legit since I've been using it for ages and it works with all the special homebrew and blah blah blah.

    The layout of the numbers on the Actel chip itself is the same type that y0's has (not the layout Catboy's has).

    As for the numbers, mine are later than Catboy's, but earlier than y0's... this seems to indicate Catboy got an earlier one, mine was later than his, and y0's is a recent batch.

    EDIT: Better pic...

    100 to 1, it's not a clone. The site has their own custom stickers, and I bet anything that their deal with SuperCard even involves the SuperCard Team making the stickers for them. B-) Money talks....
