Hello, I was looking around online and stumbled across the name of a new slot 1 card. I looked up this "Edge" slot 1 and got some info. It is being compared to R4 and DSTT so far. The Manual Looks like its on par with those carts. Haven't heard anything else about it so far.

On the same webpage I found the reference to the Edge card I also found a strange piece of hardware...Usb DATA? transfer cable
This is a USB cable...looks like the other end going into the POWER port of the DS. I actually have a USB charger for the DS and it was not advertised as a "DATA" transfer cable like this one. I thought the website may have mistakenly labeled and charger as a DATA transfer cable..BUT when you take a closer look at the box it says printed on it "For transfer and download data from PC".

ANyone know the real deal on either on of these devices??

Thanks for the info!

I guess we will hear more about this soon enough.

But I say the market is already filled with enough flashcards

Not Ncard, but maybe TTDS?

It also says that you can disable Auto-DLDI patching by holding select while booting homebrew. This is not a feature I know of with any other cart. They might be legit.

Yep the shell looks very similar too, except that the micro SD doesn't stick out for the black one.

EDIT: If the price is low, and you can somehow swap the Cyclo DS Evo firmware onto it, then this will probably be very popular

And the box is definitely a change

Actually this could be original, or just have different compression than the cyclods, The cheat file and the menu are both encrypted, i haven't been able to get very far with decrypting it as i have no way of knowing how its encrypted and by the looks of it this card has no on-board memory for the flash so it must decompress it on boot which means theres only one way to decrypt it, which is to dump the actel chips rom and disassemble that which is not very easy at all.

EDIT: LOL this is just a CycloDS clone, i looked at the dldi driver for the EDGE moonshell and low and behold it say CycloDS

There's only 2 pins in the charge port of the ds, so It's only for power and ground, no data.

Noo Noo..

Why can I plug my special headphones into that very slot and hear sound?

I bought them especially for the GBA:SP and they have the same port.

There has to be Data 0 and 1 in that connector, along with power 0 and 1.

EDIT: Still unlikely that they can actually write to the card through this though. Just thought I'd share :].

That feature is exclusive to the CycloDS Evo.

Well, I know there was a member here who had a review sample back in early December, but wanted to keep it hush-hush at the time.

If he hops online I'll see if he wants to post his thoughts on the device.
