    The two co-teams DSTT-ADV and U2DS have worked together to make a new guide card, called ipas.
    It may be getting to work with your old DSL flashcarts.

    Awesome, since its like a boot-up flashme technique, Nintendo can easily fix that with firmware update!

    My question is, how do you run a flashcart from a passme card, if there is only one slot?

    Run the PassMe, take it out, put in the flashcart.

    Have you watched the video?! [​IMG]

    When you boot passcard, it asks you to insert DSTT in, and when you do, it boots it up!

    Embeded video for all of you lazy sods out there [​IMG]

    I particularly like the part where the crappy hand drawn label that they taped to the PassMe gets crumpled up when they insert it.

    I just wanted to comment that, this video seems so unprofessional!
    They can't even insert that passcart in without force..
    And the part that I'm most skeptical about is that DSTT (ok cart, but really one of the inferior carts on the scene) and U2DS (bloody clone with probably worst design out there) teamed up to make this, maybe it's working, but I kinda doubt the quality of the end product!!


    But who knows, I might be wrong.........I wish!

    Who cares about the quality of this product? The DSi has been hacked, for the time being at least. Acekard already has a DSi compatible flashcart for sale, and many others will follow. All that remains to be seen is how Nintendo will respond, and if this hack will survive a DSi firmware update.

    This hacking scene on the DSi is moving so quickly I can hardly keep up! I just hope Nintendo doesn't patch all these methods before the DSi is released in America. What we need is a CFW or at least a way to block Nintendo updates so these carts will always work. I don't want to spend a ton of money on these just for them not to work a few weeks later [​IMG]

    haha, I don't like watching cams of any sort.


    I got a friend from Japan to send me a DSi, so I might need to look into this PassMe
