    We hope you are enjoying the
    Nintendo 3ds system!

    "Automatic system updates" Are you sure that what it means?

    Maybe it a pop up thing. "Do you want to update?"

    i dont think they can actually force an update, because dont you technically have to agree to the terms of every update? Also it would be chaotic to think its updating when it wants, then your battery dies mid update and messes up the system. Im almost positive its one of those things that pops up to say "hey theres an update now!"

    Not to mention that if a clumsy user turned their 3DS on with low battery, and it decides to automatically update...well, goodbye 3DS.
    Also, if a user turns the 3DS on, then turns it off without looking at the screen, same thing.

    I doubt it's as "automatic" as people are assuming.

    You're being ignorant.
    But don't worry everyone else is too.

    An update doesn't have to install as it downloads.
    The download can be saved to flash memory, then activated by the system menu when it wants.
    When activated, it could simply cut off commands from the power button, or go to sleep mode when power is pressed as opposed to showing the menu.

    I think there still a problem there. Plus I think that would be on the lines of illegal.

    It sure sounds like it.

    That's what the Wii's user agreement was for originally.
    Remember you only had to agree to it once, but before you could go on the internet?

    The only STOP to automagic updates is that there's a chance the update will damage your device, making it illegal or not worth the legal hassle.
    Nintendo could take steps against that as I suggested above.
    Neimod pointed out one ARM core is dedicated to system processes, so that's pointing to Nintendo's attempt to make automagic updates safer in my opinion.
