    Nice review but you failed on the main thing.

    THIS IS NOT A COPY/CLONE OF THE DSTWO.

    The iSMM is based on the iPlayer hardware, i repeat, iPlayer hardware.

    If you still think it's a copy/clone then proove it properly !

    Try to run dstwo plugins on the iSMM. try to use the last dstwo game patch on it.
    And overall compare the two pcb and proove me both hardware are identical.

    I'm waiting ... [​IMG]

    Ps : the iSMM is able to play mkv file. read my complet test of the movie player here.

    by copy/clone I just think it is "similar" that is it lol, I did not mean that its a EXACT copy but all the features are similar that's it. cuz the iSmart MM has all the feautres the DS2 has and that is why i said copy lol\

    So is it right to say this?

    Umm... Should I re-do the review 0_o??

    That is the way you want to say it. Though instead of redoing the review, why not just make a note in the description o.0...

    I think it's fine, the way it is
    most people who see the iSmart MM will call it a clone too..
    like jurassicplayer said, just make a note of it

    I was sent one of these for a review, and I'm trying my best not to call it a clone.. [​IMG]

    a note to mbmax
    I've decided to order an iSmart premium..again..so I hope that something special you talked about happens soon

    Isn't the DSTwo based on iPlayer hardware? What with them being made by the same company/dev team

    We can call it a clone for sure ! But not a clone of dstwo !
    iPlayer clone with dstwo feature this is the right way to say that in my opinion .

    The hardware of the iSMM is exactly the same than the iPlayer one (except the firmware of course).
    Mean the CPU is a little lower (frequency) than the dstwo CPU.
    We can't boot the dstwo OS on it and can't run any dstwo plugins on it.

    Now you guys still call it a dstwo clone ? i really don't understand why.

    it's like canada dry. Looks like whisky but it's not. [​IMG]

    The DS homebrew term "clone" refers to a flashcart that has the same hardware and software(with some modifications) as another flashcart without permission.

    Well, you do what you want haddad and i'm not getting mad. [​IMG]
    Do my post seemed to show that ? [​IMG]


    +1

    Exactly what i wished you to understand haddad. But you seems to not understand. [​IMG]
    Nevermind. call it like you wish to call it. Every noobs will continue to think it's a dstwo clone which is as powerfull as the dstwo.
    [ironic]Good to know we can use all dstwo plugins on iSMM. [​IMG] [/ironic]

    You are awesome quick in your conclusions.

    Homebrew plugins are ok of course, it's just nds files launched directly from the plugin menu.
    I mean real plugins .plg, like the iReader or the Snes emulator.

    Except that's not what clone means. You should have used "similar" or "alike" or something like that. People in GBATemp love to tell you about everything you did wrong. [​IMG]
