I own a DS Lite and have been using a CycloDS Evolution for more than four years and it is still working flawlessly. Two weeks ago I decided to purchase a 3DS XL which has the latest firmware. I can still go to the store and trade it for a new one (got about two more weeks). Questions: I assume that flashcart distributors do not update their firmware at the stores, so if I were to buy one now would it work at all? I have been reading about using another DS to update the flashcart's firmwares, would I be able to do that with my DS Lite? My cousin also owns a DSi I could borrow so there's that. Unlike shown on the Firmware Update Compilation Thread, I cannot check my firmware by going into Other Settings. The only reason I know I am on the latest firmware is because I tried to update. Is there some way I can stop the 3DS from updating automatically? Which of these flashcarts is more reliably updated to work with the 3DS's firmware updates: Acekard 2i, R4i Gold or Supercard DS Two. Sorry if any of these have already been answered, they probably have but I read most stickies before asking. Thank you.
