    GBAtemp.net Exclusive!





    Here's an exclusive for you all! Arriving soon is a brand new DS flash kit, that runs completely from the DS slot -- The "DS Xtreme".


    [​IMG]

    It's being developed by a newly assembled team called "DS-X" which have had a lot of previous experience in the console hacking business.
    The DS Xtreme boasts some very impressive features that could easily knock all other current flash kits out of the water.

    What are its main features? Let's take a look:
    • Runs completely from the DS slot - No GBA cart required,
    • No PassMe, WiFiMe, FlashMe required,
    • No need for external memory,
    • No additional hardware required,
    • 4Gbit (512MB) of built-in onboard flash memory,
    • USB Plug 'n' Play - shows as a standard drive - drag and drop,
    • High-speed USB 2.0 connection (mini-B connector),
    • No software/patching required,
    • Hardware and firmware are fully upgradeable,
    • Compatible with ALL current and future DS consoles,
    • Full sized onboard EEPROM,
    • Same size as a standard DS game cartridge - does NOT stick out

    i don't like the idea of "no external", then again, if I didn't have a microSD, it's fine.

    "The DS Xtreme boasts some very impressive features that could easily knock all other current flash kits out of the water."
    i still like GBA catridges for the fact u can get 4000 more games...
    the features don't impress me too much cuz they're almost the same as ninja

    True!

    Still, I like the features, assuming game compatibility is good...

    Presuming their own specs are correct - "No software/patching required" then we can expect it to be fully 100% compatible with all DS games.

    Everything about this cart seems perfect. I'm sold unless a horrible detail pops up.

    And to those that don't think 4Gbit/512MB is enough, you can still have an average of 6-10 DS games on that.

    I agree. If everything is as promised, then it will be quite the evolution in flash cards. Though, I am personally curious as to its power consumption.

    It's looks very vulnerable to a static shock, hopefully there will be a small rubber/plastic bung to put in that connecter socket.

    Cool technolgie but, the thing is; you have to tho it whit the 512 MB. You cant upgrade that.. (Ok, 512 is a good for a couple roms, but more is always better [​IMG]) [​IMG]

    this looks really nice. But the card looks cheap. Whit that mini-b connector looks like it can break when you touch it.

    amazing!
    however it seems that it won't be able to play gba...
    unless you put in a gba cart that tells the ds that the data is in the ds slot.
    like a reversed passme [​IMG]

    Sounds very promising.

    As people may have seen me mentioning in different threads, the Ultra FlashPass/NinjaPass DS Flash are both very poor kits - do not spend your hard-earned money on them!

    This kit looks like it solves two immediate problems - size and writing speed. How it is for everything else is TBD, but sounds good.
