It launched today. Bought one. Before opening (might just purely collect), what's the firmware out of the box and how's the grip on these compared to 3ds or 2ds xl let's say?

Nice! Anyone know the firmware out of box? I'm assuming this wasn't produced way ahead of time so should have newest?

Oh ops, for some reason my brain thought that was a quote of my previous comment .
I've always just collected DS silently on my own, but I think I might hack it this time, I'm not too updated on the scene but does homebrew (or whatever other alternatives) be able to hack this firmware? I bought two of these today so I'm down to crack open one.

Thanks guys! New to the thread, great to see there's still nintendo enthusiasts out there. Nobody gives a crap about DS in my area :(

You will need to buy a DS flashcart (unless you have a compatible one already).
This guide will fill you in on the details.

Any flashcart that is updatable bootrom can be used. Its just a matter if the ntrflasher supports it.

And i doubt your old r4 has updatable bootrom

I will recommend you buy a new R4 card, it's not expensive right? A good option is R4i gold 3ds+ or you can choose Ace3ds plus too.

    I want a 120hz 4k tv but crazy how more expensive the 120hz over the 60hz are. Or even more crazy is the price of 8k's.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    No real point since movies are 30fps
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Not a big movie buff, more of a gamer tbh. And Series X is 120hz 8k ready, but yea only 120hz 4k games out right now, but thinking of in the future.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Mostly why you never see TV manufacturers going post 60hz
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I only watch tv when i goto bed, it puts me to sleep, and I have a nas drive filled w my fav shows so i can watch them in order, commercial free. I usually watch Married w Children, or South Park
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Stremio ruined my need for nas
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I stream from Nas to firestick, one on every tv, and use Kodi. I'm happy w it, plays everything. (I pirate/torrent shows/movies on pc, and put on nas)
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Kodi repost are still pretty popular
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    What the hell is Kodi reposts? what do you mean, or "Wut?" -xdqwerty
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Google them basically web crawlers to movie sites
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    oh you mean the 3rd party apps on Kodi, yea i know what you mean, yea there are still a few cool ones, in fact watched the new planet of the apes movie other night w wifey thru one, was good pic surprisingly, not a cam
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Damn, only $2.06 and free shipping. Gotta cost more for them to ship than $2.06
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I got my Dad a firestick for Xmas and showed him those 3rd party sites on Kodi, he loves it, all he watches anymore. He said he has got 3 letters from AT&T already about pirating, but he says f them, let them shut my internet off (He wants out of his AT&T contract anyways)
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    That's where stremio comes to play never got a letter about it
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I just use a VPN, even give him my login and password so can use it also, and he refuses, he's funny.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I had to find and get him an old style flip phone even without text, cause thats what he wanted. No text, no internet, only phone calls. Old, old school.
