    [​IMG] New DSi Anti-Piracy Malicious Code?
    5026 - love plus plus (j)
    [​IMG]

    As reported by the SuperCard Forum Admin, 5026 - love plus plus (j)(bahamut) might have the ability to overwrite a Flash Kit's firmware. By firmware I mean the flash-able area of the card that exploits the DSi's security. At this point I am reporting on speculation and without facts to back it up. This entire thing could be a bug in the code that overwrites that area of the AK2i (reported affected card) by mistake. As any AK2i user will tell you many non-malicious programs can cause the same problem (YSMenu, for example). According to the SuperCard source the DSONE, DSONEi, and DSTWO are not affected.

    Card wars? I presume that SCDS2 sales have slumped since the delay of the SNES emu...

    u can see why they'd attack acecard tho

    as probably when they where coding this it was the most compatible hence the most threat

    i fear pokemon B/W may have some AP like this, wouldn't surprise me

    This is completely false information. Supercard apparently want some free publicity for their SCDS2.

    I'm very very perplex about this information. Never seen any report about an ez5 flashcart bricked because of this game, so an ak2i ...

    Another fake information from supercard forum ? good advertising indeed !

    i know where that admin took his source from...
    but
    why didn't he mentioned a scds2 was killed by the loveplus+ AP which is also FALSE...

    EDIT: his source links back to some chinese forum where he/she also has an account! too bad i could not post the source here *romsite*

    furthermore... 3 of my friends.. we tried loveplus+ on our ak yet they are still working perfectly
    it is really irresponsible for an admin to make such a naive claim

    This just in! If you complete Super Mario 64 on the AKi it fires out the nds at 100mph and smacks you in a face, There has been serveral reports of people losing an eye.

    My Ak2i is now out of service, after a session of Love Plus+ (been playing the night and when I booted the DS the next morning, the Ak2i would not get beyong the loading screen)
    But I doubt it's the game's fault, probably just some internal hardware problem causing this.

    If Love Plus + really contains a new kind of anti piracy, does it affect other DSi flashcards too?

    I was considering getting a SuperCardDSTwo, but now forget it!
    I'm sticking with the R4-SDHC, it's simple but good...
    But, who wants to be the first to test out Black and White?
