    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.

    Somebody mentioned a 3DS-initiated format got rid of it, but Idunno' which files to back up and which to not first.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    That would make more sense. I'll test it out, as I can use my DS Phat to upgrade my cart.

    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.
