    Is it a hardware exploit or is it a Software exploit?
    I would like to know if the exploit is portable to other cards.

    It uses the old Cooking Coach exploit by Wintermute. A part of the game and an hacked savegame are flashed to the cart, and when Cooking Coach reads the savegame the iEvo menu gets loaded.

    So would it be portable to another flashcart?

    Theoretically yes. There's a thread about it somewhere here. Acekard board perhaps? A few good posts give the gist of it all.

    EDIT: Sorry, it was supercard board. Here's the link: http://gbatemp.net/t277354-dsi-mode-can-be...-for-ds2-owners

    Same concepts are probably applicable for other cards with other FPGA chips (some chips won't have enough space I guess, but some will) [Don't worry if this line doesn't make sense to you, it should after reading through that thread]
