CycloDS iEvolution for Nintendo 3DS DSi DSi XL LL DS Lite and DS
DSi mode is now supported on 3DS
Here is the current status of the flash cards with the 3DS from the official TeamCyclops Forums:
The original CycloDS Evolution does not work on the 3DS and never will.
- If you haven't upgraded your 3DS original FW, the latest iEVO FW/Bootstrap would let you run in both DSL and DSi modes on your 3DS (with prior version of the firmware only DSL mode was working )
- If you upgraded your 3DS to the recent FW:
- - The iEVO does NOT work with the 3DS in DSL mode
- - The iEVO DOES work* with the 3DS in DSi mode (*=some features like WiFi still don't work in DSi mode)
Note: iEVO starts out in DSL mode, so if you don't have a DSi, then you can't switch your iEVO into DSi mode ( the community is working on a custom boot tool to default the iEvo in DSi mode )
For the DSi, the latest DSi FW update (1.4.3) breaks DSL mode, which means you can't even boot your iEVO on your DSi in order to switch it to DSi mode.
CycloDS iEvolution is a multi functional MicroSD adapter for DSi and NDS which allows you to play games, listen to MP3s, view images, read e-books, take pictures and enjoy the vast collection of homebrew applications for DSi and NDS systems. CycloDS iEvolution is the first and only product in the market to support operating in DSi mode, providing access to DSi exclusive hardware features such as dual cameras, faster CPU speed, additional RAM, improved WiFi support and more. DSi enhanced games are fully supported on CycloDS iEvolution, including the special features associated with these titles such as camera support. Homebrew software is also able to fully take advantage of the performance gains inherent in DSi mode which results in unparalleled performance from CPU hungry software such as emulators.
CycloDS iEvolution is the world's most advanced media enhancer for DSi and NDS. Boasting superior functionality, European design and quality components, CycloDS iEvolution is unparalleled in its field.
The graphical user interface boasts a number of impressive features such as bookmarks, advanced skinning support, cheat codes, multiple save states, file management and much more. The user interface was designed with user friendliness in mind and can be operated exclusively with the stylus if desired. Skinning is supported which means you’ll always have a fresh view of our product at your fingertips. The user interface is multi-lingual, currently supporting the following languages: English, French, German, Italian, Korean, Japanese, Spanish, Dutch, Greek, Indonesian, Malaysian, Russian, Tagalog, Latin American Spanish and Portuguese.
The unique enhanced mode offers powerful, unique features during game play which are activated through an in-game menu. These features include RealTime Save, in-game text file reader, in-game LCD brightness adjustment, SlowMotion mode and in-game reset. The cheat code engine is directly compatible with Action Replay codes and CycloDS Evolution comes bundled with cheat codes for hundreds of games. The RealTime Save feature allows you to save your progress at any point in the game and then resume from that point any time, allowing you to more easily master difficult parts of the game. This is similar to the concept of "saved states" found in many emulators. The in-game text file reader allows you to view FAQs and guides at any point during game play, without needing to first exit the game - the ultimate convenience.
CycloDS iEvolution can run homebrew software without the need for any patching or preparation on your part. Loading is fast and trouble free, simply browse to the software you want to play and tap to execute. Thanks to our special compatibility layer, older homebrew software which is not "DSi aware" can still be used while operating in DSi mode and therefore, also enjoy the inherent performance gains thanks to the higher CPU speed.
Listen to MP3's, watch videos or even read e-books via Moonshell. The Moonshell multimedia application will maximise the versatility of your handheld.
