    Hey all,
    I just bought a new red 3ds today. I wanted to put off updating the system in case I wanted to buy a flashcard that can't work with the current version but when I tried to access the eshop channel, it wouldn't let me and said I had to do a system update. So does that mean that it will update to the latest version, in which case, some flashcards won't work, or will it let me pick the update version (not likely right?).

    I want access to the Netflix channel but I also wanted to test out a flashcard.

    Thanks!
