    It was only a matter of time until the DSTT started getting clones :x

    edit: I did a google translate on the that text:

    apparently the fakes get really hot when you use them

    Well, I checked my one and I got the real one.

    Cloners have migrated to DSTT. Oh no!

    I hope this doesn't gain too much attention that will eventually cause end of support.

    I've just ordered 2 dstt from DXextrreme and are now in the shipment process. I hope I won't get a surprise from getting "fake" ones .....

    When I first read the translation, I thought it meant the dstt would fry itself if it was fake, melting the card, Micro SD and possibly the DS. [​IMG]

    dskid807, u are not wrong, it is something like that.

    The actual, direct English translation from the Chinese scripts ( 2nd part ) is :-

    Please learn to differentiate the real/fake carts so as to protect your own interest. Whether from hardware or at component level (electronics), it is very easy for TT to technically disable and kill the fakes. Such disabling/killing methods may include :-

    1. burnt cart
    2. burnt TF cart
    3. burnt main console (such case is dependent on situation, unlikely to be that extreme)

    Even if u are not able to differentiate the fake from the real, u must demand from your seller a 6mth warranty, if not, at least a 3 mth warranty. U may not encounter problems with the cart now, but that does not guarrantee the factory (TT) will not take measure to burn the cart in 3 mth time ( using the new update firmware, I think ...

    I am out of luck.

    The 2 DSTTs I ordered from DX last week and just received yesterday, fitted the exact decriptions of the fakes, the J2, the gold dot at the insert, the chip resistor near the insert at the interior of the carts.

    Bad experience. WTF

    aero, you are not alone. More and more people are receiving fake DSTT cards from DX. [​IMG]

    I tested both the faked carts ( based on the pictures above ) with ofw v1.15, both worked fine with FFIV, Hulk, YoshiIsland, JewelMaster. Reset with LRXYAB ok. Brightness control ok. No obvious sign of fakeness or delay in term of performance.

    The only concern that I have now is, if indeed TT can technically engineer a future update to electronically fry the cart, or the TF, or worst still the console, or all of them !

    I'm not an electrician but looking at the pictures of the circuit boards, the fake DSTT has a lot less things on their card which concerns me.

    That's most likely fake because they don't want you to buy a fake
    It's probably 1:1 in it's works

    So in the last picture, with the comparisons of a fake and real DSTT, which is the real one? Left or right

    The left one is real, right one is fake. The real one doesn't have a "J2" marking. Also, the microchip brand is SHARP on the real one and the gold/yellow circuitry doesn't extend past the micro sd slot. (Visible without opening the case.) The real one will also have more stuff on the circuitboard than the fake DSTT.

    I highly doubt the "fake" will burn any DS or memory card, it's just something to prevent people from buying the fake. I'm sure it's just as good as the original DSTT, no differences whatsoever!
