    I'm trying to find it currently. Also the flashcart comes clean so when I put it in my DSi there isn't any logos.

    Make us know if it uses "Cooking Coach", on dsidev they were guessing it's just that game cloned and bundled with an exploited savegame.

    Oh didn't see the letter lmao.

    Says in here that the Micro SD slot on the iEvolution may be slightly misaligned on these pre-production samples. Final retail units don't have this issue. The files for the CycloDSi iEvo will be available for download on the evening of Wednesday 26th January 2011.

    I have a couple of questions...

    Does the sticker look/feel as cheap as it looked in the initial photos?
    Have you opened it up, are there a bunch of extra chips in there, or any clues to extra functionality?
    As thick as the first batch of DSTwo cards or the later (slightly thinner) batch?

    My DStwo is the first batch at least I think so, I got it before it was even released I think. As for the sticker feels cheap you can probably even scratch it off with your nail it feels like paper a little. Compared to the Supercard DStwo sticker that shines when you tilt it the CycloDSi doesn't. On the top of the CycloDSi it looks like the CycloDSi is actually falling apart, I will take a picture and try to show you. I haven't opened it up and there is a little bump on the CycloDSi were the sticker is but its very thin compared to the Supercard DStwo.

    Sorry for the crappy camera. I am using my phone.

    The PCB is well made to my opinion.
