"you cannot play 3DS games if you don't update"
Please explain what you meant by this? I'm confused.
Certain 3DS games require you to update the system. By not updating, you restrict yourself to only those games that work on your firmware version. Newer games may (and likely will) fail to boot and request an update, much like in the case of the Wii.
I've just received my 3DS XL and it came with 4.1.0. Is there a way to update to 4.3.0 instead of 4.4.0? Thanks in advance for your help.

No it isn't. If you use a flashcard on 3DS, unless you want to buy something on e-shop
I do not recommend you into updating
Thanks guys. Just wanted to update in case a game requires the newer versions, but will stay at 4.1.0 then.

If a game requires a newer firmware, then the game will prompt the system to update to that version when booting the cart anyway.

I saw a couple videos about the Supercard DSTwo and one thing bugged me about it. The SD slot is spring loaded, much like the R4DS. Yes, I got the spring problem with my R4 by the way. So if I do decide to buy a Supercard DSTwo, the first damn thing that I am going to do is insert a SD card and the pull it out and push it in manually instead of using the spring loaded action. We all know how those springs like to break.

I have had a SCDS2 for over a year now. I have taken out the sd numerous times for updating etc & have never had a problem with the spring. In fact that is one of the things I like about the cart.

Yea, I for one am one who only has a Nintendo 3DS, and I have a Supercard DStwo; I previously had an Acekard 2i, but it was an HW44 edition one. One reason I 'upgraded' to the 3DS, was because of how many times I've had to basically replace my DS lite(s) due to the same two primary problems: (a) hinge cracking and making it unstable, or (b) shoulder buttons refusing to work.

I believe(d) in the awesomeness of Nintendium, and on the console front, I still do. But I am very, very disappointed with how fragile and weak the DS lineup has been for so long. It has only been some relief (and one reason I don't have any of those systems) that I'd been able to do an in-store replacement plan to allow me to just return it and get a new one when that stuff happens. Yes, I use my DS rather consistently... but that's simply no excuse. And the one time I tried to 'upgrade' to a DSi, and it ends up being unstable and crash-happy as heck! The 3DS was the first DS-style system since the original that I felt was actually built as durable as their past awesomeness. And at the very least, it has been... especially helpful since the stores that I used to use for such plans stopped having such a turnaround, and now want to have the system mailed out to some service center and keep me without a console for months at a time. :hateit:

Sigh. A friend just told me to get the Acekard instead of the R4i and I got it literally a week ago.
Now I feel like I shouldn't have listened to her.
Especially since I actually plan to use the eShop...

...Well, time to get an R4 now.

At least on the plus side you have another flashcart that can fix your R4i if it bricks. The Acekard is also still a great DS flashcart.

If you go to acekard website, there is a recently posted news telling you not to update to 4.4.0-10 until they release their new update. This probably mean that they found a way to make it work on 4.4.0-10.

Don't expect it soon though, looking at the previous news, it takes them 1 or 2 months between this warning and an actual update.

Glad I got my DSTwo. Sad that the latch broke so now my SD will shoot out of it unless I tape it in. But it's not so bad.

if you undo the screw you can take the spring out you know, then it will be just a push/pull slot
Have you actually done this? Because I've taken the lid off, and I'm not sure what to do with it.

EDIT: Okay so, I didn't figure out how to break it per say, but I did figure out how to make it stay in its 'loaded' position. Now the spring won't move, and I am able to remove and place the SD card at will. Close enough :)

You know, this got me wondering... it might be one of THE first things out for the original DS, but it's first-party. Wouldn't Ninty say something about this?
They would've said something to Datel first because of their DSi Action Replay cart. It used the Game and Watch Collection (2?) icon at one point but idk if it still does or not.
