    My 3DS is on firmware 4.1.0-8U. I plan on buying a flashcard in the future, and I would like to know if it is OK for me to upgrade my firmware right now, or if I should keep it on this version for compatibility with flashcards in the future.

    Gambia, The
    You can update to 4.5.X to get a better compatibility but otherwise it's fine.

    3DS NOOB PARADISE - Ask questions here

    Read the stuff there and ask there you don't need a thread for this. If you can't find out then idk if you should really be "hacking" your 3ds

    EDIT: its on the wiki btw just had a look

    Sorry, I didn't look in that particular sticky because I assumed it was only used to ask questions, and that the OP wouldn't answer anything.

    I think I'm going to use my friend's copy or Animal Crossing to update my 3DS to 4.5 and leave it there.

    animal crossing usa is 5.1, only the europe version is 4.5........just a heads up

    Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D is good for either region for 4.5
