    Revised NinjaPass X9 Review

    Official GBATemp Review









    After patiently waiting for Team Ninjapass to develop their flash card software for many months, the time has finally come to revisit and re-review this flash card for the masses to read and converse about. Much has changed on the software side of things. Yes, it did gain a better score than my prior review. Just how well did it improve? Is it worth purchasing now? To get these answers, take a moment and read it here.

    i have it, i bought it as soon as it was released, and never had a problem, so for me it perfect, esp with the new loader ( v1.1)and DIDL support.

    It's better than before, I'd say it's about SCDS1 level now.

    It is actually a capacitor not a battery.

    The score is 6.5 so it varies as average still it has a neet function to determin the card speed which is good i would like to see that in other card brands.

    How so?

    It runs pokemon fine, it does homebrew fine, it creates saves, doesnt need dsrom.lst anymore

    Now all it needs is that wifi transfer app [​IMG]

    "Sucks" is a very strong term. Back when it debuted, yes, I could concur with such a label. Now? "Basic" is the word that comes to mind. Again, versus other cards, yes, this one is on the lower rungs of the ladder. However, its present form is nothing like how some slot-2 cards were back in the day. Need I remind you of the earlier NEOFlash models? X9 gets the job done ROM and homebrew wise. So does every other slot-1. Let's cease with the harsh terms about it. Besides, if you want to attack it, aim at the hardware design like I did. Put some meat on your argument rather than resorting to crude words.

    The only fault I can find is the cart quality. Wow how could it snapped by just touching it?

    for animalsex, buying the ninjapass was one of his/her biggest mistakes.

    For me, despite it falling behind the M3 simply/R4, it is still a pretty good slot 1 solution. All games work (im pretty sure cars is fixed, just no one has bothered updating the wiki) and the extremely simple GUI means I can immediately go into a game.

    The only thing is...unlike the R4/M3, the ninjapass is microSD card dependant. Similar to supercard's slot 1 solution. Game performance may have longer loads (not much, but noticable) if your card isnt fast enough. Heck, im using a sandisk ultra II and it has a faster write speed than the kingston, yet I can only run games on medium.

    For some, the frustration of save corruption made them give up their ninjapass for the R4 and they'd probably never return ^^"

    Personally I rate it 8/10, but keeping in mind the concerns others have, a 7/7.5 would probably be the average rating for most people.

    I tested the last OS. Cars was still freezing or not saving. 2 games not working out of over a thousand is still a good sign. I've already given it away to a fellow staff member here, so I hope they enjoy it. I'm quite happy with some of my other flash cards (see my Wiki). [​IMG]
