    This is an email we sent to SuperCard a few days ago. Since then, there was no reply. That's why we're asking for a more direct way of contact. I know there are many Chinese users on here that may have some kind of contact with the team.

    the best way to contact them is to post in chinese on the chinese forums.

    I just want to add that the scope for linux running on the DSTWO is almost limitless (beyond the obvious lack of a UI).


    EDIT:
    We've asked, he's no longer in contact with them.

    dang, than sucks

    you can try and PM the mod on the Chinese forum, that seems to be the best way now that costello is no longer in contact with them

    Before I learn Chinese the DSTWO will get majorly obsolete!

    I wish this would help, but often times I don't think the Supercard team is willing to do anything. It seems like as soon as they do something, they hope that another team would pick up where they left off, but they never give enough for people to help

    It would probably be easier to modify the iSmart SDK (which is apparently more open) to work with the DSTwo. That would require quite a bit of reverse engineering to find out what exactly is different, besides a more powerful CPU though.

    Unfortunately the iSmart MM SDK is not publicly available so that's not possible.

    Why not have everyone on GBAtemp email them? They can't ignore that.

    You should join the iSmartLinux project instead asiekierka.

    Is that actually translated by you or did you just put it through google translator? If you did it yourself then it would probably be more accurate than google, and it would be very helpful!

    I have a PSP now so I don't need emulators/apps on my DSTWO anymore (unless someone codes a working Virtual Boy one or something), but there's no reason why people who paid for the flashcart shouldn't get their money's worth, so I support you guys trying to get SC team to do something.

    No. I do not have an iSmart, many more people own a DSTwo and i dont want to port Dingux but Linux 2.4, complete with all necessary libs, maybe a package manager and possibly a GUI.

    Btw i'll look at the chinese translation tomorrow

    Again, throwing this out there. If you want something, why don't we just have more people email them. There will be no way they can ignore us then.

    Why not create a post in the Supercard SDK section asking everyone who wants to be able to port Linux onto the SCDS2 to add their name to a petition, let it run for a week or so and then email the petition to the SCTeam.

    Forgive my ignorance, but how exactly will this be useful? It's not like it will be powerful enough to run any programs... right?
