    What do you think?!? Nintendo will just let you play roms on the SD with THERE firmware!? My guess is that the DSi will have a hack like the PSP but you'll need a cart to get it on.

    No, but maybe someone will make something to go on a SD card that overwrites the official firmware.
    I'm not that tech-smart but it doesn't sound too farfetched. [​IMG]

    maybe i'm thinking we can just us the sd card from the flash cart models and play teh games for the Sd cart slot and such

    I do hope there is no touch screen though

    nintendo will have truly shots themselves in the face if they do

    because that means all DSL and Phat DS owners won't be able to get new games and there for have to get the DSI

    That's what I'm saying.

    When the firmware is dumped I'll try to run it on my Lite.

    There already is a "custom" firmware for the DS, called FlashMe. Not really custom, but it's definitely something that overwrites the original factory FW, as far as I know.

    At least make something where you can use the sd card instead of a flashcart. I guess no one would buy them (flashcart) now if this is possible [​IMG]

    Course it can, there are already some Custom Firmwares for Regular DS's/Lite's but they suck
    And nobody is going to be interested to make custom firmwares for a device that is dying and old
    Just my thoughts

    I know about FlashMe but it isn't really 'custom'.

    I know this is probably totally the wrong crowd to try and explain this to but:

    The pandora has more than enough speed (way more) to emulate the DS. It also has a touchscreen, and a large enough screen (800x480) area to put both DS screens on it at once. It can already do GBA emulation, and full speed SNES - Chrono Trigger runs smooth as hell, full speed Amiga, Megadrive, PC Engine, Jaguar and PS1, with fullspeed N64 emulation on the way.

    It's slightly larger than the DSL. As well as the Dpad and face buttons (ABXY), there's two analogue controllers, and a keyboard. And Wifi, and bluetooth. Twin SDHC slots. TV-Out. OMAP 3 running the latest generation of ARM CPUs, which makes it (very) roughly equivalent to a 1.4ghz ARM9. Overclockable from the default 600mhz to 900mhz with no side effects. 10 hours of battery on one charge, USB/AC charging. Full USB host. Oh, and a very, very fast PowerVR 3D accelerator.

    But the best part is that it's completely open.

    No firmware will try to lock you out. It runs linux, but transparently (though Ubuntu runs fine on it) - all you want to do is done via a menu. It runs firefox, and any other linux app you care to try. It runs Quake 3, and should be powerful enough to run Doom3 when the source is made public. Homebrew is just a case of dropping it onto your SD Card (or transferring over the USB/Wifi network).

    There's already an enormous library of games waiting to be ported, and many already have been. It's pretty much source compatible with the GP2x, so there's a shitload of software already there for you.

    No, there's no big developers behind this. That's why it's so expensive. Ninty and Sony make a loss on their consoles, because they recoup that loss through game sales. Pandora can't do that, as all the software is free.

    Besides, despite the price and the shouts of "obvious fail" from guys like you, the pandora has sold out in the first two days of pre-order sales. Obvious fail, yeah [/sarcasm].

    I'm quite glad that ninty announced this now - I feel even better about my pandora pre-order, and look forward to getting it sometime between now and the end of november!

    :-)
