    Looks like GBalpha.cn has M3 Sakura 1.34 released with all the enhancements of the 4.2c M3 Real update. Not sure when the EuropeUSA release will come out, not even sure where it will appear first, but hopefully this is the first one to reach us. Enjoy folks:

    To my knowledge it doesn't work on a Japanese cart since it's labeled as Asian just like the previous one (1.33 A01). The Japanese version would be J02 and EU/US would be E02. Hopefully we see them soon!

    The full (Google Translated) changelog also show a bunch of other fixes, including apparently much better homebrew support and a fair few other things:

    By the way, thanks linfox for your site, great collection of tools. But one question: where would you check to see if the English Sakura was released? Do they show that info on the same GBAlpha site?

    I just wanted to confirm that it doesn't work on the Japanese Sakura carts. I have a Japanese M3 Real which is identical to the Sakura cart and the Asian firmware doesn't work on mine [​IMG]

    They would probably show it on gbAlpha site but on the english one.

    M3sakura.com - It still hasn't been finished. Probably won't be until the release.

    The new firmware update is similar to M3 Real 4.2c (without RTS). So probably it IS fixed [​IMG]

    Thanks.
    They never mention the English releases on GBAplha, always specifically the Asian ones (even the descriptions say things like 'for Asian Cards only'), but they do host them (when they exist).
    http://down.gbalpha.com/GBalpha/Softwares/M3Sakura_E02.zip would be the URL if it's ever added, maybe with another release number though.

    I got a M3 because of Sakura, before Sakura came out, and it is not doing very well. It took like a year until roms could load on it. Anyway i guess im glad this is coming along.

    been waiting for a long ass time..

    dont know when they will ever finish it.....

    It start making me doubt if they will end up like M3 Perfect Firmware where latest firmware never came out for US...

    Why in the world they loves Region Lock so bad? just cuz the price difference in different region will let them make less money?

    this is really retarded.... its a damn Flashcart, why Region Lock?

    Hurrah!

    Better homebrew support!

    Now, I wonder how long it takes for this to get hacked and added to the triple booter.

    So it fixes homebrew support, the 10 minute auto-shutdown bug and adds Slot-2 booting for homebrew. That's very exciting, but if the bug that causes DPGs with GOP info to stop at the last GOP hasn't been addressed I will be very disappointed.
