    There is no new launcher and the update already is released.

    Did you even read the MT-Card website? The 1.2 updater (no new launcher.dat needed) got released already!

    So this is additional confirmation that NAND games support require a FPGA update.

    It's looking grimmer and grimmer for clone carts (R4i and 3dslink) users.

    Hmmm...Ive sent them a mail asking if they are working on the update for eshop or not.
    We shall see.
    It looks promising but it makes me wonder why they didnt include it in recent 1.2 release. I mean Gateway got it working gin one day :(

    It supports buying eShop games with money, but no ROMs.

    1.2 is only a hardware update. You probably need a Launcher.dat update for eShop support.

    Ehh...MT card firmware requiring an FPGA update released shortly after Gateway's firmware requiring an FPGA update. I'm not going to call MT a clone or make wild accusations of MT and Gateway being the same team, but that is some awfully coincidental timing.

    In any case, good to see that we have at least two teams willing to do much of their own work. I say "much of" because Gateway originally built on top of R4i DS and MT originally built on top of Gateway. None the less, we finally have some strong and healthy competition in the 3DS scene as opposed to mostly no-talent clone groups mucking things up.

    As confusing as their wording is (for lack of emphasis on important parts), it looks like the latest version available for download is v1.2a, not v1.2. v1.2a does not have eShop support, but as Vengeanceonu said, maybe their v1.2 release in a few days will have it.

    Again, very VERY confusing, because their download links say it's 1.2, but the .rar's file name is MT_Card_Updater v1.2a.rar.

    Probably MT-Card had NAND Saving finished but they held the release for some reason (maybe to develope more features first). Their FPGA update is via USB port, not via 3DS Slot.

    It's the same file that got released as private beta some days ago.

    Right, but it's not the 1.2 they're advertising. My point is, 1.2 is not yet released.

    Probably they were too lazy to edit the file name. Still, it's only the Hardware v1.2.

    Fair enough. Still, I just thought I'd clear things up for others who don't read file names :P
