Does GW 2.0b2 fix the freezing issue while saving?

    Exactly what it says on the tin.
    I'm still on b1, because I'm paranoid- but sometimes while exciting / saving a game the 3DS got stuck at the closing message. This is especially frustrating as it prevents the save file from updating, thus killing my progress of that session.
    Does b2 fix that problem? Because I'd update if it does.

    There's nothing quite as charming as losing 4 hours of progress in Bravely Default due to GW failures ;/

    It stucks at the Exit Sceen? Never had that error. Only a message that the card has been removed or something like that.

    Is Bravely Default an exeption..?

    ______________________________

    Normaly there is an easy solution to this, without having the risk to brick your device and update to 02b.

    Here is how it's done:

    - Start your game through GW-Mode as always
    - Load your game and change an umimportant, but visible thing (Maybe the formation of your chars)
    - Exit the game with home

    If a message pops up you will have to reset GW-Mode and try again.
    If not, then your current session is "save" and you can play without thinking about this error. =)
    (The 2nd step ist only for you to double-check if the saving was really a success)

    No it isn't... seems it happens when the exploit doesn't work properly.
    5 days ago i were playing Project X Zone quitted etc.. but forgot to charge, and it turned off... had to make the exploit again...
    played for freaking 2 hours straight... then when i closed it *bam* crashed. Happened only this time with me, and probably because the exploit didn't work properly.

    To me it seems like it happens randomly, but only after playing for an extended period of time.
    I had it happen 3 times now, and every time I've been playing at least for an hour. It's definitely happening while the save file is supposed to be written to the SD card.

    2.0B2 fixes the saving issue, but also introduces a console kill-code that could cause your 3DS to brick. The only way to fix it after this happens is through soldering, and a new method of resetting your EMMC.

    Yes like the other said. b2 fixes it, but you run a risk of bricking.

    Start the game, then immediately press Home and Exit. If it saves, then your play session will be safe for the rest of the time until you turn your 3DS off. If it freezes, then restart your 3DS and do it again until it doesn't freeze. I've been doing this with Kid Icarus and it has worked so far.
