    Look there is always a ton of FUD in most of these threads. But multirom or Ghetto multirom could have probably been added in the very 1st version of ALL the firmwares. But definitely after menu additions were added.

    To qualify for multirom you would need technically a minimum of 2 roms on the sd card. There is no requirement for a filesystem of ANY kind. So you can:
    force the users to cat or join their roms (padding the smaller ones to 4gb).
    require a minimum sd card of 8gb(2 roms) or 16gb(4 roms)etc
    select "slot 1" or "slot 2" etc from menu (or ghetto version no menu and button select)
    force sd card reads to start at address x00 for slot 1 and at 4gb intervals for the other addresses/slots

    Afaik the FPGA defines how the SD card is read......it's not really controllable via the 3ds unless it's updated to expect these commands and understand what to do with the commands, most of this has already been covered in several threads......but that's not to say multi rom is not possible, there is actually a few ways they could do it, all of which would require work on the 3ds firmware to make happen. And so far they haven't done anything at all new or original and they wouldn't have gateway to copy when trying to implement such features

    Can they do such things? Who knows maybe they have a skilled but lazy dev and he will stop being lazy

    But I'm not so sure, seems like cheap reverse engineering at every step so far

    I've been away for a while amd haven't picked up my 3ds since months. Finally an update.
    Does 4.5+ games mean we can run pokemon x/y and other nand saving roms now?

    As I said, I would be just fine with eshop games, sdk 5+ games and cart spoofing for nandsaving games.

    They've just done the second, I don't know if the third is actually already possible (can someone confirm that?) and I think it shouldn't be difficult to do the first, since IIRC it was just a matter of patching the .3ds file (in fact gateway added compatibility in a day IIRC)


    Correct me if I'm wrong

    It looks like this time R4i used MT Card firmware...
    On settings, it shows: MT3D-7.1.0

    Lel so maybe that's why the file is way smaller than an emunand enabled launcher ? ( since it seems they only disabled it from the menu) It is then based on the safe mt card version based on the gw 2.0b2?

    I'm fairly sure that the R4i/3dslink team is the same as the MT card team.

    the team keeps telling me in mail that I use this instead of 3.0 that it's not safe , has anyone tested it yet to see if it's just a copy of mt card 2.0b2 gateway copied version? or something else..

    Once again you couldn't be more wrong. R4i and 3DSlink are the same team. MT card is not. It's a separate team. Now whether MT is an offshoot team from GW is another matter.

    This doesn't make much sense, as GW is really protective of their work. Why would they copy themselves, rename to MT card, and the proceed to remove their own bricking code (basically DRM)?

    If MT-Card was the same team as GW, they would probably also have a similar section of code to protect the codebase, so teams like this one couldn't copy them.

    Oop misread. I thought by "offshoot" you meant "clone".

    R4i Deluxe, 3DSLINK, Orange3DS, MT Card
    are all the same company

    Exactly. People should use their head more and take all the facts into consideration. Then it becomes clear that there only 2 teams: GW team and the "clone" team (R4i Deluxe == 3DSLink == Orange3DS == MT card). 3DSLink team made MT card when the figured out they screwed up and forgot the FPGA update ability.
