    I'm just going to drop this off right here. To the left is the diagram for the stealth VIII. To the right is the diagram for the MultiMode 3 (with the second soldering point obscured by a textbox for some terrible reason). Notice anything, you know, similar?

    Is there a particularly good explanation for this? Are the chips programmed differently, or is it a case of jerks trying to make a quick buck off of people who don't do their research?

    I'm gonna say it's a case of jerks trying to make a quick buck. The flashcart/modchip scene has always been plagued by cheap clones like this. The business is so illigetimate anyway they figure why not make an exact clone and sell it.
