    There are some games I'd like to buy from the nintendo e-shop. I haven't updated my 3ds xl or even connected it to the internet since I got it. I'm wondering: if I buy some games in the e-shop will the 3ds update automatically and prevent me from using my r4 card in the future, or can I safely suppress updates?

    You can't use the e-shop unless you update your console first

    If you try to connect to the eshop, it will ask you to update.

    Thanks, that's all I needed to know. Looks like I won't be getting any e-shop titles.

    Or you could use a flash cart that works on 4.5.x, like the latest-model R4i Gold, or the DSTwo.

    You'll have to update your 3DS's firmware eventually. Newer games only work when you install the newer firmware. You should do what Rydian suggested
