    Does anybody here even think there _will_ be a new update at this point, or will they just take their profits and duck out on everybody? Does it even matter any more considering any update now is so far removed from being even remotely timely? And if and when there is an update, will it even be enough to justify all these months of waiting and the same old 'we just don't feel like telling anybody what's going on' attitude?

    They have been talking about having a new firmware for months.. I doubt it will ever come. Even if it does come out it will probably break a lot of stuff. I don't really care about an update since I don't have any problems. The Arm fix solved the problems for all the games I care about.

    I don't think anyone should rely on team DS-X for anything, let alone a firmware update!

    I wrote this a week or two ago in another thread, might as well post it here....

    This whole ds-x issue is getting so old. I'm still running firmware 1.0.2 or whatever it is. It's complete bullshit that I need to get zelda, put it on a flash drive, go to my moms computer(im on a mac), take the game apart, replace some files, put it back together, finally onto ds-x.

    We all know why these carts exist. For anyone here to say they ONLY bought it for homebrew is lying. I'm sure there are a few people here, but most of us bought our carts for one reason. The DS-X crew obviously made these carts compatible with roms, there is no denying it. They can all they want. They're a USA or Canadian company, so I understand they gotta protect their asses. But they can't play us for fools and try to backpedal now that we have them in our hands, saying they're not made for roms. I think they're all playing us for fools. How long can they post on their forums that their working hard on this and the reason they can't post on the forums is because their hard at work.

    [​IMG] Exactly the reason why my brother ran over his DS-X.

    Meh, IMO the DS-X is a great cart. It just has a... lousy team.

    I would have went R4 long ago, but would like to sell my ds-x and use that money to buy an R4. We'll see how bad the winter is, if Im indoor soto much, an R4 it will be.

    The best part is now a bunch of people have preorders for them and ds-x is saying there is a shortage of memory. Which I guess could be possible, but it doesn't seem to be stopped any other cart from cranking out carts. Seems fishy that all of a sudden there is no FW updates and there is no actual carts being made anymore.

    Such a joke. Sucks I fell for it...

    Well, yeah, but it seems like every flash cart team makes up a whole lot. How many carts were supposed to have 100% Download Play compatibly when they didn't? And wasn't my M3 supposed to play SNES games?

    They all lie about their products. But who cares, as long as they do what you want them to do?

    It did. You just had to click Write GBA and load a SNES ROM.
