    Look at the Flag...
    You can't,
    just keep your wifi off or anyway once it'll be downloaded it will ask you if you want to update, just say 'No', but it will keep asking you from time to time.

    You cannot cancel the update from downloading. However, it will ask you everytime you turn on if you want to update, but you can simply press B to refuse.

    No, formatting will not cancel the update either, and yes, some Flashcarts works with the latest firmware.

    As long ad you update your flashcart BEFORE the 3DS ine the future, you're mostly safe.

    They mean do this, in this order.

    1 - Get a flash cart and update the flash cart.
    2 - Update your 3DS.

    If you update the 3DS before you update the flash cart, you're fucked.

    You're not 100% guaranteed to receive a Flashcart on the latest firmware, so

    ALWAYS UPGRADE IT FIRST Or you won't be able to update it if you only have a 3DS.

    If the flash cart hasn't been updated, then it doesn't support the newest firmware.

    The firmware update is what makes the flash cart able to work on later firmwares. This is why you update the flash cart FIRST.

    Compatibility list for what, games?

    Flash carts that have updates support 99%+ of games at any given time. Usually if one flas hcart doesn't support a new game it's only a matter of days or weeks before an update to fix it is out.

    The only time I have ever really had compatibility issues is with the CycloDS in game menu/save states. Ever since switching to my DSTwo even save state issues have been rare (though the slowdown option does not work with Tetris).
