No More CycloDS?

According to DCEmu, Divineo have been raided in Hong Kong by Nintendo because of their modchip business. Unfortunately for DS homebrewers, Divineo were apparently the company behind TeamCyclops, the guys who made the CycloDS.

Hopefully this won’t impact the availability of the CycloDS Evolution (though it isn’t produced in vast quantities anyway). It’s a great tool for homebrewing, and it would be a shame to lose it.

Here’s an interesting thought - if Nintendo had released a simple homebrewers kit that consisted of a flash cart, a C/C++/ARM toolchain, an IDE and a manual, that wouldn’t run commercial ROMs but would run homebrewn ROMs from the internets, would flash carts be as advanced and prolific as they are now?
