CycloDS Evolution BETA firmware vB.3 has been released for testing. Changes include:

  • Added option to show all file types in the file browser
  • Last played bookmark now shown in main menu bookmark mode
  • Old cheat prompt now supported when launching from main menu bookmark
  • Internal ROM name is now displaying correctly for homebrew
  • Tweak to ROM view in small icon mode (thanks Solanum)
  • Fixed problem preventing Stealth Mode being manually enabled
  • Maximum number of files per directory increased to 256
  • Changes to skin specification to support additional icon types for text file and unknown file
  • Various other GUI tweaks
  • Game compatibility fixes (DSi 0054, 4900, 4904, 4913, 4916)DSi 0054: Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands (E)
    4900: Jam with the Band (E)
    4904: Blue Dragon: Awakened Shadow (U)
    4913: G.G Series Collection + (J)
    4916: Tetris Party Deluxe (U)

You can customise the colours for the text viewer. For example, for white text on black background, add the following to skin.xml:

<text-view-bg colour="000000"/>
<text-view-font colour="FFFFFF"/>

For details on the new BETA firmware line, please see the original thread here.

NOTE: For 4913, if you have used an un-patched ROM on a previous firmware release then you must delete the old .sav file to disable the "protection triggered" flag.

EDIT: Team Cyclops has uploaded a new build of B.3 with two small tweaks - the save file is now created correctly for "Jam With the Band" and DSx86 has been fixed. If you are having issues with either of these titles then please re-download the firmware using the link on this page (we recommend using the "CycloDS Revolution" mirror).
