    Sorry for my really bad English, i know i should learn a bit more proper english.

    Hello, the Firmware of the iSmart MM seems to be the same as the Firmware of die Supercard DSTWO, is there any difference between the iSmart MM and the Supercard DSTWO, except the Brand?
    I own a Supercard DSTWO GBATemp Special Collectors Edition and don't like scratches on the Sticker, that's the reason why i am searching for a cheap replacement Product.

    There are some small differences between the kernels (and they are not interchangeable), but for the most part the iSMM has the same features as the DSTWO. Notable difference is that the iSMM uses the OEM design of the iPlayer, and thus it doesn't have as much power as the DSTWO and doesn't use quite as much energy as the DSTWO does in terms of playtime per charging. Also, homebrew utilizing the iSMM's CPU are practically zero as they don't feel inclined (or can't) release the SDK to go with the flashcart whereas the DSTWO's SDK is easily accessible and there are a couple of homebrew things to play with.

    Here's a thread that might help you actually see what differences there might be in comparison to one another.

    for the sake of any arguements i'll just say that i know for a fact that the ismart mm is supported by team supercard. it may not be that way in the future but for now it is.

    I meant to save these for the review but as that gets delayed for various reasons. Apologies those on slow connections.

    The SD slot picture has the chip surface sanded.

    The long chip on the other side did not scan well so it was adjusted “in post” as it were.
    the writing on it is
    Zentel
    A3V56S40ETP -G6
    TAIWAN A36BFD1B

    It is a 3.3V 256Mb SDRAM chip with the G6 part seemingly indicating it is clocked at 166MHz with a CL of 3. If you are trying to find a datasheet on the Zentel site it comes under the one for the A3V56S30ETP.
