    New protection on DS carts

    Can't dump them anymore








    Our friends over at GBArl.it report that a new type of protection was found in the commercial DS game cart Jet Impulse/DS Air. We don't know exactly the differences with previous hardware yet, but this game cannot be dumped with the usual methods.



    Is Nintendo attempting to put an end to piracy on the DS? Or is it just an isolated case? Future will tell... Kudos again to our friends:

    [​IMG] Update: in their latest dump, WRG included a bunch of pictures of the cart and screenshots of their dumping tool. You can download the pictures here, thanks to DS-Man.

    Interesting. But it won't last long till it's dumped I say. If they managed to dump R4, M3 Simply and PassCard, this won't take much longer.

    Does this mean new methods must be used now, or will it be impossible completely?

    Huh, interesting.

    Maybe this will finally lead to the developement of dumping software that can be used on more cards than just the GBA Movie Player CF and M3 CF.

    GBArl rules.
    BTW i think that that cart needs only a new dumper, and maybe a patch, but anything can happen...

    well, assuming they really wont, we need new slot-1 devices (DSLinker/DS Fire link/DS-X) compatibles with new protections

    I guess they were sick of seeing their games dumped all over the web so they put protections in it.

    I was ready to place an another R4 order very soon, possibly today but after hearing this, I am going to wait and see what going on.
    Edit, I don't know what a real DS cart looks like inside. From the pic, I'm guessing the chip is the protection. Is it the small chip or the big one?

    Eh, I have a feeling that a new dumping method quickly. It shouldn't be too much of a problem...hopefully.

    The same exact thing I'm worried about. I don't really care about any other DS game right now except that. FFXII: Revanant Wings comes out 4 days after D/P.

    meh i doubt this will stop people dumping their games completely they will find another way and H8TR that's a pretty silly reason not to buy a R4, out of all the current DS games that's out there right now (over 800) you stop buying a R4 because of one game that cannot be dumped? lol
