1. It would make no sense for someone to make a homebrew capable of backing up save files, but not restoring.

    Yeah sorry, I misread that post. I missed the word "homebrew" and thought you were talking about something else ;o)

    So just curious... has ANYONE here applied and NOT been selected?
    It looks like they're giving them away to anyone who responds. I'm wondering if that's true or if they've actually turned anyone down.

    It wasn't made to restore 3ds games. It wasn't made for 3ds at all.

    Actually, the NDS Adaptor plus (hkems) can backup and restore (but not decrypt) 3DS saved games. The original one can't but the plus version (the one with pokemon heartgold/soulsilver support) can because it has upgradable firmware. Just update the firmware and PC software to at least 3.0 (3.02 is required for Jam with the band DX and 3.03 is required for Sengoku Musou Chronicle).

    Are you sure? I haven't been to their website lately, but the product description on ConsoleSource.com (where I got mine) says it does not work with 3DS games.

    That's weird. How long ago did you submit your email? I wonder if they're looking for specific criteria, like people who mention they have both systems, or elaborate on their answers, etc?

    Probably because they can tell when you guys will either write a horrid review, don't write for a site, or your review will be useless. You're just in it because it's free and you can say "yeah, I like it" and pass it as a review.

    i signed up like 2 days ago, got an email saying i'd won the next morning, sent my adress but nothing since =__= and I'm not on the winner's list =_____=
    (edit: same as alot of other people it seems lol)

    They did say "first 300"... Maybe if people didn't it would be because of where they live?

    I'm pretty sure the list is for the ones that have already shipped. You'll notice they all have tracking numbers. They're probably shipping in batches. Our names will probably show up on the list once our item has been sent.

    Nah, it has nothing to do with location. Did you see the list? They're from everywhere. Besides, they're not even sticking to the "first 300" thing. They got way over 300 responses and have decided to add another 200.

    I was just reading the forum on the Dongle's own website and the admins said they're sending them in batches and our names will appear on the list when they've been shipped. As of Mon, Dec 5, batch 1 & 2 have been sent. They said the 3rd batch will be shipped soon, followed by the 4th, and so on, until all 500 are shipped.

    So if you've received a confirmation requesting your mailing info, that means you've been chosen. And when your name appears on the list, it means it's been shipped.

    Got my confirmation; can't wait. Looks like a nifty bit of kit and look forward to writing up a review. :)
