    As mentioned in subject, do the flashcarts still work with the version update? Specifically, I'm using Acekard 2i atm.

    I don't see why they wouldn't, they are after all updating the 3DS firmware, and not the NDS bios, but I could easily be wrong.

    I read somewhere the update is going to be 50MBs; which is kinda large, even for all the new features. Maybe it's possible a bunch of extra AP checks are included in those 50MBs. My bet's on that. We'll see. [​IMG]

    A thread will likely be made once the update has actually been released, this thread will also probably make it to front page news.

    In the mean time please refrain from posting more of these threads as at the moment it is basically just spam as nobody has an answer or will have one until the update is out.

    The key thing to notice there is your 3DS is Japanese, they are ahead of us on time. My UK 3DS does not have the notification and I've been checking half hourly since 4am (insomnia problems).

    Lol i love how so many people were like "ahh nintendo cant brick you im so confident it wont brick it coz of legal reasons blah blah blah" but now its actually here everyone will be terrified and wont dare do it till they're sure someone else did it safely! (honestly id be the same if i used a flashcart on it but i havent so im all good)

    No, it's only those who were already afraid who are terrified of updating. I'm going to update immediately because I know that Nintendo won't brick the system. At most, they are going to patch the exploits that make it possible to use the flash cards.

    I have full faith that there will be no risk an would put money on that fact. I like to think of all the reasons they wont and above all I cant help but think they would want to avoid a PS3 situation. Sony removed OTHER OS and that started a god damn war... if Nintendo bricks systems it will be on; no doubt there.

    Wouldn't an online ban suck almost as bad, though?

    There's always an update to fix the problem... 1.4, 1.4.1, 1.4.2...

    I doubt they would do that. They would be eliminating sales from the eshop. If you're talking about online play, I don't play online multiplayer so I really don't care.
