Does SX OS prevent updating game card firmware?

    What you mean by this, you mean that only during the update process to not use the card slot? If we use it in the CFW/emunand it will not update the GC slot or what?

    This changed with v9.0 and higher, it will burn your GC fuses, even if you don't use the cartridge slot.

    There really no harm is losing your GC fuses, as there not much reason to be downgrading to lower firmware anyway, and even if you did downgrade to lower firmware, the only function you could not use would be original cartridges, and the only reason to be on lower firmware would be to use it as entry point like warmboot or coldboot, and in those cases again you only be on lower firmware for exploit boot time, with it booting up into latest emunand where you be playing your games.

    So I personally really don't see why there is all this fuss about GC fuses and saving them.

    I was under the whole impression that emunand would allow us to have the best of both worlds. Online play in OFW and backup games in CFW. But if the gc is broken then how would you play official games online?

    That's not a problem as your OFW would be on the latest firmware to be able to go online as your GC would read just fine.

    It's only an issue if your OFW is running firmware lower than 9.x but in those cases you could not go online on lower firmware anyway.
