    they had a computer crash and lost all of their source code. they will try to have new updates available soon. thats pretty much all you need to know. what i'd like to know is when they are going to update their old gba kits like the m3 lite =P.

    Well, at least that clears up the confusion about the M3 team being "dead". They are not and they will continue to release updates - if they somehow restore their source code, that is.

    Luckily, I still have an old M3 Simply/R4 that I can use with the Wood firmware though it is kinda ironical that I have to use it to play newer games.

    Hope everything works out. I have a GMP-Z003 version M3i, and with every new release it becomes more and more useless. If something isn't done soon, it's going to become dead weight and completely worthless. So I hope they can get things back on track.

    Thanks for the letter, GBAlpha.

    But one last thing....



    Why could you build a new GUI for your three new R4-Fake cards without any source code..?

    You are right but:
    The R4iPt and 3.0 is build in October and the new FW update for 3.0 can build R4iSdhc Team too we dont now!
    Then the R4i 3.0 is a Cooperation with R4 SDHC Team we dont know who makes the Updates for the card!

    I have send GBalpha an message about this and wati for Repply!

    They only thing I could gleam from this, is that seemingly somebody is still working there ... working on something. Good news i suppose.

    At least we know the M3 Team isn't totally dead....still not really excusing their current track record.

    Does this letter has something to do with iTouch? Latest update was in the end of september and there is no news since this date at all.
