    Many of you have been keeping up with the scene of the Nintendo 3DS and the flashcarts in regards. Well, branching off of the Gamekool topic, I have news. Being on great terms with their sales manager, I have information that will be of either great news or a complete bust.

    Basically, the gist of it was:

    1. A new flashcart is in production, will probably release March 10.
    2. Made by R4i Gold Team, at www.r4ids.cn
    3. Video of new cart is currently being uploaded as we speak.
    4. The cart only supports DS Games on 3DS, but will definitely work later, due to lack of games.
    5. R4i Gold's new cart will be first in stock.


    As some of you may have guessed, I'm User X, and Gamekool is User GK. Conversation provided via Skype, at 7PM GMT-8, which is just now. More information will be updated if necessary.

    You guys can think me a liar or whatever, but I don't pick a side to support here. I am simply reporting facts as I have received them.

    The bit about 3DS games is BS. They are just releasing a card pretty much identical to the one they have just with an updated bootloader, or that's my guess at least.

    Kool story, bro.
    (sorry, had to)

    In other news, I hope this is fake, or that the 3DS games part thing is a lie, or that the May update permapatches the system. The 3rd scenario would be a win-win. Early adopters could pirate, but can't access E-Store/DSiware.

    Not really believing the will support 3ds games part. I guess that guy didn't hear how the cyclo iEvo works on the 3ds out of the box.

    I dunno what to say either, but they have no reason to lie. They are an official DSDatabase sponsor, and we usually put them through a screening process of sorts. They may lie, but what's the point?

    @everyone here: I don't know what to say, I won't take any sides either. I am simply reporting what I gathered from my conversation.

    I predict a lot of flashcard companies will rush out videos to say "Our card plays on 3DS!" to feed off the 3DS hype and sell a bunch of cards in the process. I predict a lot of kiddies will mistakenly think they'll play 3DS games too. Good times. [​IMG]

    Like you said, it could be. And given this is an R4 team. However, these are one of the legitimate Wood teams that Costello approved a while back IIRC. What we can do is simply wait it out and see what happens, but I'll be getting one of them soon and I'll let you know how that goes. [​IMG]

    Like I said, we'll see if they can do it.

    its the same exact card but says 3DS compatible on the box now
    thats really the only difference, the bootstrap might have been updated also (I dont know if you can flash R4i's yourself)

    In all honesty, that's what part of me thinks too, but I'm gonna go out on a limb and see what they give out to us.

    I don't doubt that they'll release a card with a pre-flashed bootloader that will boot on the 3DS in DS mode. After all, getting consumers to re-pay for something that could just be a free update is what R4 teams are all about!

    However I doubt the 3DS thing, it's like a pokenoob saying he's working on a patch.

    Proof or it didn't happen. AK2i I've seen, but I HIGHLY doubt M3 right now. Their team is almost next to dead.

    @Rydian: I'm gonna try and get more details and maybe some footage, but I honestly think that sometihng's wrong with his idea too since we don't even have the dumping tool yet. I think it was called a dumping tool [​IMG]

    More.

    Name, Price, Sticker, Firmware?

    Wood, I guess.

    But the rest?

    I think I'm the only person on this entire site that doesn't want the 3DS to be hacked.

    Nintendo is probably so pissed. The handheld was hacked in under a day...

    I didn't expect you to answer that. You know, piracy is something really bad and I've heard that some people use these homebrew devices for piracy. [​IMG]

    But that's something really bad we both would never do. Of course. We don't want to get banned, do we?

    So how exactly is this different from what we have now that works on a 3DS?...
