    Yo,

    So we all know the team is known for some bizzare stuff in their firmwares (latest sakura, anyone?) And here's just more proof in the pudding. There are two PDF files in the SYSTEM folder under Realtime.db and Realtime.rst. It's all in chinese and one has to do with windows CE and the other, Linux. Definitely about programming of some sort. I've uploaded them for your convienience as well.

    Anyone know a bit more about this? So odd! But I guess thats why we love 'em.

    ... The site linked in them seems to be an embedded system/ARM training centre/course sort of place.
    Looks like they're learning to code! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yep, they seem to be from 华清远见 (http://www.farsight.com.cn/) teaching about developing system drivers for Linux and WinCE.

    I noticed them as well. Ubuntu users probably notice it because of the thumbnail.

    But never mind the PDF-files, what the hell is that AceKard stuff doing inside M3Sakura?

    Hijacker! Really though, whether it be that they're programming in hopes of a new flashcart world order, or the competitors files' in sakura may be just to weed out the competition, we'll probably never know. Above and beyond the language barrier, they're especially secretive regardless.
