I successfully updated without my Myth exploding and it still boots. That's always a good sign! Even though I've done this before, I still forgot to remove the neo2 first and was wondering for a second why the board wasn't falling off after I removed the screws  ~sm-39.gif~.

Who will be the first to drill a hole in their cart so they don't have to remove any screws to use the Nero Dual Programmer? It sure won't be me, I'd just make a mess and there aren't that many core updates.

16 days wouldn't be much if you sent it to Australia but I see you were both in Germany, it shouldn't take that long.  ::sm-21.gif:: ~sm-68.gif~.gif

If the package was signed-for and never arrived after the time limit(set by the post office) it will just return back to you.  ~sm-60.gif~.gif
Also , in case it got lost and it was indeed a signed-for package , then the post office can refund you(at least a big amount of what its worth)  ::sm-01::
Better talk with your local post office  ::sm-21.gif::

Wait  O0O O0O O0O O0O
Did you sent the package with courier (dhl) ? If so , you can still contact them and ask them about your package's status.It doesn't matter if its uninsured
or non-trackable.

If you shipped the package without any express service(just mail) and not signed-for , then im sorry but ....  :'(  :'(  :'(  :'(

I don't think he shipped it with DHL but with the normal "Deutsche Post" as he hasn't any tracking code.
One can still ask the postoffice where the package is and they will look for it, but if they can't find it then you're screwed.
But afaik the postoffice didn't reply to him yet. So there is still hope. Only if they say "We lost it, sorry" the hoped has died.
The sad thing is that it was broken anyway, as it didn't save anymore. So if it hadn't broken down, he wouldn't have shipped it to me and the stupid post office wouldn't have lost it. :-\

But as I said, the hope dies last, we just have to wait for the post offices reply  ::sm-21.gif::

Back to topic:

What are the advantages of the new v2.0 firmware? I mean changes in IO address and ID feedback function is nothing the standard user (like me) can make use of.
Or does it have to do something with the upcoming menu?  ~sm-48.gif~.gif

It got put on the slow boat to China.  ~sm-79.gif~.gif

Good to see it wasn't lost. These carts are pretty pricey to just lose in the mail.

The card is fine  :)
I resoldered the old capacitor and also installed a 6105 cic ronaldo sent me.
And it works again. After 12hours saves are still present.

I will now let it rest till monday morning next to my own N64 Myth and then check if the savegames on both carts are still there.
If yes I sent the cart back to ronaldo (in the biggest parcel I can find and I will write on it with black paint "Try to loose that Mr. Post"  ~sm-79.gif~.gif ).

Also if anyone else wants a cic to be soldered in his N64 Myth, I can do it. Free of charge of course, just sent me your Neo Myth including a game with 6105 cic in an insured parcel. (for german residents only)
