    Wow. I'm not sure how DX can deny that the gold dots are fake now. It shows it right on the ndstt site. Has anyone pointed this out to DX? People are going to be upset if firmware updates fry their microSD cards!

    I have a feeling that if DSTT really does implement the "fake-killer" into their firmware, it is going to backfire. People will think they have an official one and the word will get around that the DSTT kills your microSD card and will instead just buy other carts.

    I also find it a little ironic that they spent all this effort to write a program that would destroy fakes, but their firmware still can't do an alphabetic sort of ROMs!

    I still can't get the video to work from the DSTT site but I'm Really interested in what it is actually going to do.

    watched it and it shows them nuking fake cards with whatever they plan to add to the new loader [​IMG]

    its crappy that they have to resort to killing off cards to those unknowingly buying the fakes!

    some will inadvertently NUKE their cards in the rush to update to the latest kernel ....

    and will put paid also to using YSMENU as it uses the hacked TTDS loader [​IMG]

    no doubt someone will find a way to bypass it until the TTDS team re writes it again!

    I noticed they didn't show them taking the MicroSD cards out of the real versions and then trying them in the fakes. I'm wondering if it's just corrupting the card or if it's actually nuking the TT itself. It gives different nuke results on a couple of the carts, on some it freezes at the loading pic and on some it get's past to just dual white screens.

    That video is a) impressive and b) convincing. I'm very glad that my two DSTTs are "real" ones.

    And people seem to be at a loss as to why DX lowered their prices. Surely it's obvious now. With all the emails they've been sent, if they didn't already realise they were getting fake cards then they must have by now. Now they're just trying to sell them as fast as they can before people catch on to it.

    The newest DSTTs, which have the lowest prices ever ($12), have the new packaging and are real as far as anyone knows. So that would refute that particular theory about why the prices were lowered.

    More likely, DX was duped into purchasing some fakes from a new vendor under the pretense that they were real. Apparently, they were told that these fakes were just from a different factory, but indeed they appear to have been fakes. The question is what DX will do about it, particularly since the fakes may be destroyed by firmware updates.

    Hmm? I thought someone said they bought one and it had a gold dot? Maybe this was some other online store... Anyway, I doubt the packaging will do a great deal for long. I mean, they managed to do a pretty good imitation of the card. Plastic won't be a problem for them. XD

    I haven't heard of anyone actually receiving one of the new packages yet. Do you know of someone who got one and it contained a fake?

    As far as I know the new packages currently being sold at DX are probably real and not fake since the companies selling fakes wouldn't have had had time to copy the packaging yet.

    No. No one personally. I thought I saw it on here, but I think that I was just imagining it or something. I guess we'll just have to play the waiting game on that one.

    But I reckon it wouldn't take them too long to copy that packaging. I suppose it depends on a number of factors, but if they caught wind of it early then who knows?
