I have 2 3ds systems. A regular on 4.5 and an XL on 5.x.

I would like to keep my regular on 4.5 but it keeps asking me to update every 24 hours.

Is there a file on the SD card that I can just delete to stop this? Or will it just nag forever?

But yeah, it will prompt you every 24 hours. If you're worried about accidentally saying yes, just turn off wifi. It won't stop the prompts, but obviously you can't update without an internet connection.

I accidentally pressed yes when 5.0.0.XX came out even when I wasn't at home with no wifi (switch was also off) but it updated anyway! It downloaded the update :c

From where? Unless Navi is actually a glowing portable router, that doesn't seem possible.
If enough time goes bye, the 3DS will download the update by itself when your not using it and while its connected to the Internet. When its downloaded, it'll keep yelling at you to update.

I'm under the impression that the 3DS pre-downloads the update before asking you... not too sure but I think I read it somewhere if not in one of the threads here.
Hey anton, that is a very intelligent theory to mention, Nintendo would never leave a hole like that empty. Too many discoveries were made like this about the Nintendo 3DS to not know that Nintendo still have more cards hiding in their sleeves.

    I don't like popcorn at all; bland taste, and it got ruined for me because of high school - the school cafeteria reeked of microwave popcorn for several days...utterly revolting, couldn't even enter the place it stunk so bad.
  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Nah, for movies I'd rather get a bag of lollies instead of popcorn.
  • Costello @ Costello:
    lollypops? a whole bag?

  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Not lollipops; what Americans would call "candies" or just "candy" IDK. Before the pandemic, cinemas used to have buckets of different ones - sour cola, sour watermelon, and many others; I used to get a scoopful of two or three types into a paper bag to have throughout the movie.
