    would it be possible to hack other cards's kernel, such as the supercard dsonei or the ezflashVi to make it run on your tt(i)
    it sure would be nice to have all those features

    odds are no.
    not saying imposible but not likely some one will take the time to figure out how.

    I was wondering the same, but for the DSTT... I saw something about running AKAIO 1.4.1 on fake DSTT (not "i")... is that true?

    That DSTT could have just been a Acekard clone.

    ak2 clone being named as DSTT [​IMG]

    Yes! before clones were not blocked
    anyway, clones/fake are all blocked on AKAIO 1.5

    why are clones blocked on AKAIO? if AKAIO is an unofficial firmware, why would it have a need to block clones?

    Maybeh so clones don't start packaging AKAIO with their cards.

    but it's unofficial, what good will that do? they don't make money off the real ones and they won't make money off the fakes ._.
    AKAIO will end up on the cart even w/o the seller doing that as long as the person knows of its existence ._.

    Because they don't want clone carts to be able to use, it's that simple.

    some card introduce an rts as a kernel update,
    which means you dont need special hardware (like the iplayer has)
    to run a rts function
    its just that nobody has bothered to make it
    so,

    either someone can hack other rts cards's kernel to use rts and xtra feartues and great graphics

    or

    somone can include an rts + other things in a kernel update

    or

    we can just acknowledge that we are either dont have an extra 10 USD or we are just stupid to buy a tti

    me, i bought it from a friend when i knew nothing about flashcarts a few months ago [​IMG]

    most card generally have the same hardware. Just the software thats different. But I notice that you can flash dstt clone back to life when it has been kill. maybe you can flash that to another kart and it will work as a dstt cartridge.

    or if you flash firmware from another flash cart on to the dstt it might work.

    have not really tryed it. so can not confirm it.

    The internals of cards are different, it's not the same hardware in each card. The cards that have the same basic hardware as other cards are usually clones. ie R4i-SDHC (red box) has a similar hardware build to the DSTTi because it's a clone of the DSTTi. And no, flashing that app to cards other than the DSTT will not turn them in DSTTs.
