    They make it seem like its such a big deal. I have a dsi pic on my facebook profile by a little thing called sd card. It doesnt really do much other than save you a trip to copying the pics from your sd card to the computer.

    Don't complain about a free update that lets you do something handy if you happen to be a facebook camwhore.

    Do complain if the update stops you from legitimately buying DSiware or attempts to block your flashcart which you use for legitimate reasons like homebrew and backup copies.

    Kind of a useless update. Nintendo probably just wanted to get it out the door because they blocked flash cards with it, so throw in a useless feature, and voila, a new firmware update!

    I don't even use or care for facebook, so I for sure have no reason to update [​IMG]

    I Thought that this was already out well they'll probably find some exploit using a hacked picture that allows flashcarts to run when tried to be uploaded to facebook.

    It was out on Europe and Asia earlier but it hadn't hit here yet. But now it has.

    Thank god you finally told everyone you don't care about facebook. Wait .... why are you doing this? Oh, you're just one of those guys who thinks his opinion is so important he has to tell everyone.

    Seriously, there are many MANY avid facebook users (myself included) that'll find this update useful. I'm sad that I can't use homebrew, but, no homebrew can even upload to a website so, IMO, this is way more important. (Yes, I have a laptop I could easily upload with, but, alas, I hate taking my SD card out of the DSi in fear that I might break the cover off)

    Last time I checked this was a public forum.

    The facebook update isn't that great considering facebook is getting less popular. I'm assuming the web browser can't upload photos?An update that would allow it to would be much better.

    I've seen no evidence to say that facebook's been getting any less popular. In fact, I've been seeing a lot of evidence that suggests that it's just getting bigger. Example:

    This is similar to one of the Wii updates a year or two ago. It added a mediocre and almost unnecessary update which also blocked the Wii Freeloader for loading American and Japanese games. A completely legitimate product which was doing no harm to Nintendo's profits (unlike flashcarts which can load DS ROMs not that I agree with them blocking them though)

    With a name like 'ilovengage' your posts don't matter either xD

    Try to keep the discussion on topic, before the mods come in and open up a can of whoop-ass. We're here to talk about the 1.4 update, and are more than allowed to share our opinions on it. I mentioned earlier that I felt the Facebook update was useless as well. I'm allowed to share that too.

    I don't really see how this is that small of an update. I mean, the Wii gets a new System Menu to fix a single bug. Facebook isn't the biggest deal in the world, but it is a feature which actually adds something to the device.

    It's a shame we can't update homebrew-style, and only grab the latest camera channel instead of the whole menu. [​IMG]
