    hey guys i was just going to ask how exactly do you have to update these flashcards to make them work on your latest 3DS firmware?! well like i read in some places that you have to update your flashcard bfor using it :wtf: and my question is what if ur 3DS is on latest FW do you just have to update your fashcard ? i heard itll become useless if you use it on a 3DS which the flashcard cant cope with its FW. do you update by launching the flashcard in the 3ds? and what is it that u must absoultely not do .to not make the flashcard defect?*and i didnt understand the thing where they say do not update your system before updating your flashcard what does that mean sorry im to noob* thanks in advance.

    If a flashcard is blocked by a 3DS firmware update, you can't update it on this 3DS any more. You can't damage your flashcard with that (so far), but you also cannot use it in any form any more.
    So if you don't have a DS or DSi (to make the update on them) you will have to buy a pre-patched flashcard and every time when a new update is released you will have to check if it blocks flashcards (most of them do) and wait with updating until there is a new firmware for your flashcard. Then you'll have to update the flalshcard and THEN update the 3DS, not the other way around.
    If you have an old DS or DSi you want to keep you could save yourself some headache.

    Hallo, keine Sorge ich hab schon schlimmeres deutsch gesehen.
    You are right, if you have 2 3DS (XL) and you have one with older firmware that can still run your flashcard, you can update it on that 3DS, so you can use it on your 3DS with newer firmware again. You just to have to take care not to update both 3DS to a firmware of which you don't know if it can still use your flashcard.

    You might have to re-format your MicroSD card (set the sector size > 8K) since "the Poke Monster W/B" game size is too large to run...

    So did you actually run fwUpdate_V5.05.nds on an older DS model?

    Because you can't run a firmware update on a 3DS that has blocked an R4 already. You will need an older DS.

    You don't need an older model to update the kernel, simply replacing the files on the MicroSD works.

    No, it says it supports 4.5.x

    The 5.x notes are for a NEW cart they put out, not yours.
