MagicKey - possible to use with other carts?
« on: April 27, 2005, 09:31:47 PM »
I currently have a 1G F2AUltra cart, and was wondering if it will be possible to use the X-F bootloader and the MagicKey with such a commercial device, or perhaps to adapt the bootloader to work with it and the key.

It would be nice to not have to get another expensive cart, when I already have a tried and reliable cart in hand....at any rate, for homebrew stuff I will have a PassMe thanks to Lynx and am not going to rely on the adaptability (or hackability if that becomes the case) of the NeoFlash hardware - but it sure would be nice....

don't think it'll work, cuz it's written in another code...

True, I am assuming the Neo is going to use different flash chips with different flash revisions as well as differing hardware registers and built in firmware - although there is a small chance that the bootloader _may_ work it is probably in the best interests, companywise, to not let it work on others carts... but isnt the "MagicKey" essentially a fancier/better commercially produced "PassMe"?
