    It's just been submitted as news I think.

    I honestly don't know. You'll have to wait for someone to do a review on it first.

    Yah saw that aswell.
    Looks like another R4 clone.
    The feature list is same as R4 and N5.
    The topline of the website is also same as R4 and N5...

    I wouldn't trust it.
    Most likely just a knock-off copy of a popular flashcart...except with less quality.

    I suggest, if you're looking to purchase a flashcart (I'm asumming), that you should just get a flashcart that GBAtemp has reviewed.

    I seem to recall that the N5 also claims to read SDHC. From the N5 website:

    But it doesn't actually read microSDHC cards.

    It might aswell be the N5...
    As they got bad reputation with the fuse thing, they might have just changed the label to sell this one more [​IMG]

    I modified my above post after finding it on the N5 website. They still advertise that the N5 can use TF cards, but it apparently cannot.

    This doesn't look very notable. Just another cart in a market full of them. I suggest you stay away from it until a proper review.

    And no, I am not associated with the cart's team.

    After looking at the files in the loader, I'm almost positive this is an R4 clone.

    Well, we have this thing, called "law enforcement". You may have heard of it.

    And the CycloDS is developed by an American team.
