    I would assume this is just a new chip, I don't think it would change the files. Even if it did, there is no reason to believe it wouldn't work on our flashcarts. If it works on a normal DS with this new chip, it has to work on ours as well. Well thats what I want to believe anyway.

    Send an email to the WRG team with my Ideas , i hope they are worth something ._.

    I think it's not an Protection but some kind of compressing , maybe some pieces of the header are compressed [​IMG]


    Or it's just the Game is now RSA secured (like demo streaming) [​IMG]

    @Dominik93:

    Sounds logic.

    May it be that they build in a new chip so the Graphics of the DS get better (like in the SNES ) and we can't dump it cause of this ?

    With the rate that DS piracy's expanding at I'm surprised they didn't do it sooner.

    And to all you people panicing that your flashcarts will become "useless" if they can't crack the new games, for gods sake look at the amount of stuff they can do already! There's plenty of games and apps out already that run on the carts, you've probably saved your money's worth off them already. When you're getting something for nothing you can't complain when the well dries up.

    This is fantastic news. I personally hope future games will become undumpable for good, so you're all unable to play your pokemon or ff12. Hahaha.

    With it being made easier to pirate the games with the slot 1s being introducted this was bound to happen. Having to patch games so they'll work on the supercard or M3 was a little complicated. Now with the R4 its just drag and drop. No need to worry about flashme, passme, wiifi me etc....

    I've never known a cartridge that couldn't be dumped. They'll probably solve the problem and have it dumped in no time.

    I think that if we fix that thing they'll bring out a new protection, until we surrender.... (hope this is not true [​IMG] )

    Heh, hackers will never surrender. That's the fun part of it!

    There's always new protection, a new hurdle to get over, but we always get over it. Then a new one comes out and we defeat that too. Nothing can be created that can't be undone.

    The only thing that Nintendo did here was buy them some time before we break this new protection... Nothing to worry about.. yet.

    Sure, but if we would come to an point when the hacking of ONE game would cost one year then surrender would probably the best thing to do...

    And I did get my M3 Simply 1 Week ago... may it be useless now ?

    Yes! Completely useless! Might as well throw it out!

    If only there were 800+ roms that did already work on it, along with an extensive amount of homebrew applications.

    Don't get me wrong... I would buy Bleach 2 like I did with Kirby US in a second, but I refuse to pay $65+ for a single game.

    We MAY even have to get new flashcards (If the chip enhances the game instead of protecting it), but it surely is not undumpible.

    Nintendo your just encurageing us... Give us more to hack, and more people will become intrested. Your just cutting off a arm and leave it to grow back two in it's place.

    sixb0nes you bastard. How dare you wish somthing that horible!
