    Just got one of these for my son. I’m a CycloDS newbie. How do I install the firmware? Thanks.

    Hey Barry,

    Just put up a new blog post since I have had a lot of customers asking this question.

    Nice explanition

    Can this work with the DSi?

    Unfortunatly, the Cyclo DS Evolution does not work with the DSI.

  6. 6 Thumpie Bunny Eve Apr 21st, 2009 at 12:19 pm

    With the release of the DSi,
    will there be further development of the CycloDS Evolution software?

    I’m using version 1.5B4 on a NDS(Non-Lite version)
    and with it, emulated “GBA Classic NES” games
    such as Metroid and The Legend Zelda are 90% unresponsive,
    to A, B, Select, & Start button presses. (D pad works fine however.)

    I’m not sure what CycloDS Evolution firmware version if any, addresses this problem.

    If none do presently, then i worry,
    with fear, that research into this problem may never be completed,
    considering the move to new DSi compatible hardware, and research there of.

    Can you shed any light here?

    hi. i have a suggestion. it would be good if you had a choice to buy a EZ Flash, micro sd card, a micro sd reader and a cyclo ds. this is just a suggestion.

    Hey Dang,

    The Team Cyclops site was down.

    It should be back up now

  16. 16 J.J. Jun 22nd, 2009 at 12:43 pm

    Hey Bob,

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    I will be updating the site over the next couple of weeks. Will Add
    EZ flash cards as an option

    I have been meaning to do this for some time but have been trying to sort out
    stock issue of the CycloDS Evolution.

    Cheers Bob

    Thanks Joe. I will make those changes and improve the sites design and usability.

    I currently have CycloDS Evolution and seeing the new NDSi XL during a store demo was pure XL eyecandy

    That being said, I would like to know if the CycloDS Evolution will work on either of the newer NDSi or NDSi XL?

  20. 20 chris Oct 2nd, 2010 at 5:20 pm

    their site has shut down or something??

  21. 21 Zchan Mar 1st, 2011 at 1:48 pm

    If I have a ds lite, is there any need to update the CycloDs’ firmware?
