Well according to this post in 3DBrew that clearly says:
The auto updates are no secret. They even let you turn them off manually.
Yes... This is a bit obvious, sorry. It even asks you if you want to enable them or not.
I have them enabled.
Yeah, that was in the update notification too.
im pretty sure that the info from nintendo just said "AUTOMATIC UPDATES", not "AUTOMATIC SYSTEM UPDATES"
they didnt say what exectly would be updated automatically. and they didnt say that EVERYTHING would be updated automatically. Given that information, a major update to system menu v 188.8.131.52 could be a manual update.
But nintendo wants anyone who uses a flash card to just be afraid. im not taking the auto update message from nintendo any more seriously than the disclaimers on their games that state that modified hardware will become bricked.
They kinda did.
Little known fact -- they added a manual to the System Settings Menu in v2.000. Tap on the System Settings icon once, tap 'Manual', then go to chapter 25, scroll down. They spill the beans there.
Yes, and according to that page, only manual system updates may brink your device, not the automatic updates. It clearly states that automatic updates will only update the wireless access point and cuss word filter, nothing more. Relax people.
After seeing that im kinda worried now
so the auto updates are worthless? and the major ones are still manual like the june6th update?
In the next sentence the manual said "No such notice for these and other automatic updates will be displayed on the screen"
It's entirely possible they could sneak in automatic APcheck database updates in (to block cards). It's not system critical data so there's no risk of brickage if the user turns off the system during an update. It'll just try again later.
This is entirely feasible -- expect it.
That's right, the major updates are manual. That's what it says in the manual, page 25.
This could be the reason people are experiencing shorter battery life in sleep mode since the update... If periodically it's checking some server to see if new information is available and/or updating.
Can you tell me how to turn them off?
My sentiments exactly. A lot of discussion around these parts regarding "hacking" the 3DS is 95% speculation based on 5% fact. Even something as mundane as these "automatic updates," which are disabled quite easily by the way, just has to be picked apart based on mere fibers of evidence.
So it just minor stuff I never did believe the bricking thing but still it worries me thou no one had trouble with dstwo on the 3ds yet?
Is there a way to TURN these off? If so can someone please document the steps needed to ensure we don't autoupdate ourselves to brickage.
Settings - Internet Settings - SpotPass - Automatic Software Downloads and then select No.
Ugh... how you are surprised, people? DID YOU READ THE DISCLAIMER when you updated it? It gave you the option to turn them off.
ALSO, it gave you the option to turn off wifi altogether to avoid this whole mess.
And it's not talking about firmware updates; can you imaging the trouble they would receive if it automatically connected without you knowing in the middle of a huge FW update only for you to be "passing by" home or the hotspot and have it disconnect? FW brick much? Obviously they can't force you to update the firmware and if they are doing any such thing, it's just updating my fucking Pokedex app with new pokemon.
You guys worrying about this... shut up. Stop scaring people. Nothing bad is going to happen if you read up on shit before you MANUALLY update.
