    I think that's chinese writing, which may mean that it could be an iQue variant. Since there's nothing on the internet about this you might have a unique find. Or it's japanese and I'm completely wrong

    FYI, that's nothing to do with iQue. It uses Traditional Chinese characters, which implies either HK/TW (and possibly a knockoff) or Japan.

    Yeah, since there was only one other card recovered and it was beaten up this is probably a knock-off. Still strange that someone would create an imperfect knock-off of such a niche game card, I would buy one anyway just to check it

    So, I used this app to try to translate it from the picture. I keep getting something like "Actual Inspection" or "Actual test"

    I know that "inspection" is "檢查" which is on the card.

    This looks like a different cart than the aging one.

    This might be for one specific test thats part of the aging one or might be something completely new, either way I hope it gets dumped.

    So, with that in mind and from what I've found it means "Actual inspection card"?

    looks like this test cardridge is often used and comes from germany like the aging one
    do not worry

    eventually it is a other version of the aging-NTR

    NTR-005 is on the back of any DS game title, I think it's about the card shape in general. It's written on my testing cartridge and on all retail games.

    Mine is version 1.0, dated August 18, 2004 so you seem to have a newer one.

    I noticed that my ntr testing card only boots on 3ds consoles with a CFW, not a retail 3DS (on a recent firmware). I do wonder if yours is similar.

    DS Lite version, nice

    Yeah, it is... the plastic (infrared games for example are NTR-031)

    Makes sense, they're older than the DSi (so they don't have a signed header), and they didn't think of whitelisting a card intended to service a different console :)

    Running v1.0 and v6.0 side by side I noticed that a few things are different.

    obviously, 6.0 has a more recent build date, 1.0 is from August 18, 2004 wheras 6.0 is from November 11, 2005 (from 1.0 to 6.0 in just over a year, lol :D)

    Main Menu:
    contains a new option called "Clear NTR Config" which wipes your DS config entirely, forcing you to re-setup your device.

    Evaluation Menu
    v6.0 contains a "PMIC" entry, 1.0 has a blank (____________) line there.

    Test Program
    6.0 additionaly contains "TP Accuracy", "Test TP Jig" and "IPL2 Rewrite" but is missing the "Self Checker(8M)" menu

    Misc Menu
    Additionally to all the options from 1.0, 6.0 contains a TP Linearity test which lets you draw on the screen.

    Other than that, the tests seem to run way faster on 6.0 than on 1.0

    On a "virgin", unmodified 3ds? Because 1.0 won't even show up on the 3ds main menu unless it runs CFW.
