    You buy something like flashcarts, because you expect them to last until the consoles end. I would expect protection like this would throw people off from buying a flashcard until they know that the protection can be thwarted.

    As told, here's a better explanation in last NFO wrg release, Wi-Fi_Taiou_Morita_Shogi_DS_READ_NFO_JPN_NDS-WRG:

    Â Â Â| ÂA possibly new protection method was implied to the latest NDS Â|
      Â| ÂGame Jet Impulse/DS Air (NTR-AWGJ-JPN). Two of our suppliers  Â|
    Â Â Â| Âhave tried WRG DUMP 1.4/M3 and got the same dumping problems. Â |
    Â Â Â| ÂSee Jet_Impulse05.jpg ~ Jet_Impulse10.jpg. Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â|
    Â Â Â| Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â|
    Â Â Â| ÂThis game is 1Gbit in size and uses the Macronix chip. A Â Â Â Â|
      Â| Ânoticeable fact is that this is the first 1Gbit chip from    |
    Â Â Â| ÂMacronix.Check Jet_Impulse00.jpg ~ Jet_Impulse04.jpg. Â Â Â Â Â |

    I thought everyone was allowed to backup his own game ONCE for himself, so isn´t this protection AGAINST THIS RULE ?

    I think if Big N got this protection that strong that we can´t dump it then they have discovered our last weak point...

    If this shit is true then my biggest nightmare has just came true [​IMG] .

    EDIT: Hope the problem lies in that new Chip.

    BTW: Holy Crap ! 1 Gbit ? If they bring out much more games of this type then we maybe get 2 Gbit Games soon !

    Technically you are allowed to have backups of your movies/CDs/DVDs/etc, but technically you aren't allowed to bypass the copy protection to make them. So having one, if you own the original, isn't illegal, but making the copy is.

    And it's not enough to just say you lost the original -- you need substantial proof.

    My first thought was ... so how does this affect the Wii? What hasn't Nintendo shown us yet?

    The R4 would be another flash cart for another DS. I already have an M3 DS Simply an I not going to stop using it because of this. I just want to know if this case is isolated to one game or maybe even just Japan. If it is, I will continue with my purchase. If this is the case with all DS games, until we can break through the protection, I will continue to buy my games, which like many others I still do even though I have a flash cart. I still have intention of buying PKMN D/P. (I want the pre-order stylus! LOL.)

    humm.. an LPT port slot-1 reader reports
    non-standard port init values for nintendo browser
    00416017 001808F8
    ^ this is not usual value, 00586000 is standard.
    havent had time to figure out what it does cause.
    the usual KEY1 stuff doesnt at least work on that card.

    but the 1G card seems to be even worse,
    has new chip coding also 23J not 23L
    n browser has 23L 8mbyte chip in it chip ID C2 07 00 00

    hm.. that new game seems only be available in JPN or?

    I hope that it's just an isolated case and that Macronix doesn't play smart and sell their chip to other DS developers as "copy protection".

    I think it's only a dumping problem. If they found a solution to make a backup it should be no problem to load the rom on a current flash card.

    Everytime a new protection is presented. A person(s) is motivated to take upon the challenge of bypassing it. I wouldn't worry too much, but likely we might have to wait a while till it's fixed.

    Seems to be a dumping problem. After firmeware update there should be no problem to use the roms with current geeneration of cards.

    uups, I take it back, the non-standard portinit values for
    nds browser do have no effect on standard card reading.
    it can be read with lpt port reader ok.
    Was my bad, had some strange testing results initially.

    Is there a possibility of new firmware on the DS? Does that mean people should get their ds lite as soon as possible?
