    Homebrew has the same extension as a original DS game (NDS). But Homebrew has to be (Auto) DLDI patched.
    Original DS games are just not accepted (without a hack). You can launch Homebrew, but no original DS
    game (for now).

    You literally have no fucking clue how this actually works do you? it contains no extra ram or cpu, its a multimedia decoder chip which is specifically designed for multimedia with no other purpose in mind. Not to mention no emulators are actually still in current development. A Rom Loader although making it more illegal changes nothing in the fact that this device is still illegal like all other non Nintendo made carts.

    The Retail price for iPlayer in China is RMB 198 after conversion is approximate 28-30 USD

    If we get ROM loader I think a coder should at least try to give us cheat database or RTS as this would leave AK2 and iplayer customers happy !!!, if anyone would be able to do this it would be great

    Also does anyone know if this extra power could be used to let the Browser work without the memory pack ?!!!

    AND I have herd reports of this memory also being used for a GBA Emulaor ?!!!

    The website just updated recently to include downloads.

    They include.
    The Iplayer OS
    A patch for Moonshell reset whatever that is.
    And the Iplayer Dldi source code.

    So now I guess someone can fool around with it and see if it can load ROMs or what have you? Or do people need the cart still?

    This looks pretty cool. It would be great if you could watch videos online and stuff.

    I just ordered one of these from DX
    http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.26437

    I wonder if there are going to be audio sync problems however. Every time I try a reasonably priced PMP with XviD capabilities the audio lags horribly. I don't like having to do a lot of file converting cause it's a pain and takes forever. My PSP has good playback, but again converting is a pain. I just hope iPlayer got it right, guess I'll find out in a few weeks.

    I'll probably buy one once it's 1.4 compatible, and once the emulator is actually released to the public.

    Not for gaming? Not anymore, seems like the emulator for GBA games is out. But great review by the way.

    You know there are two language edition as the iPlayer product line. One of them is $38.50 of the English edition as follows:

    http://www.psxboy.com/1088_iPlayer-for-DS_...h-Edition).html

    Another is $28.00 of the Chinese edition as follows;

    http://www.psxboy.com/1089_iPlayer-for-DS_...e-Edition).html

    Does anyone know what's different between these two editions? If I can use the English language menu in the Chinese edition of iPlayer, I'm going to buy the cheap Chinese edition.

    Your information would be appreciated.

    I think they're probably the same, unless the Chinese language version is a fake(imitation).

    Oh BTW, just some info, about the chip AML340, I think this is some kind of PIC or MCU IC in a VQ100 Package, and it's real IC# was intentionally erased. So, it''s like a SOC(System On Chip). But then, I may be wrong, because I'm more of a pharmacist, and electronics is just my hobby. As for the other chips, previous post was quite right, one was a flash chip and the other as a ram (maybe for workspace & buffering, etc.).

    I have a different picture on mine, does that mean that I have an old version or something? or doesn't it matter at all?
