    So the Spotpass in the internet settings has Automatic Software Downloads and Sending of System Information.
    I disabled it months ago thinking its gonna update the system itself.
    Well... i still think its gonna so i am asking you guys if that's true?
    Right now disabled i didn't get the notification to upgrade the system nor any kind of notifications, just Letter Box Notifications and minor one.

    And whats ok to enable?
    Both of them or just one? Which?

    Auto software downloading means when there is an update, the system will download it ahead of time, but it won't actually install it unless you confirm that you want to update. It will, however, bug you to update every time you turn on the 3DS, lol.

    Sending of system information just lets Nintendo know what menu versions are still being used, maybe the most commonly played games, I don't know. I wouldn't worry about flash cards or anything like that though, there's no way Nintendo could prove that you don't own "Alex Rider" or are playing a DSTWO, which fakes that particular game.

    That section is for guides, and F.A.Q. guides. It's a little misleading, but it's at the top of that section.
