Its been like a year since I've updated my flashcart and I just need some simple help. I went on the main site and downloaded the "DSTWO EOS v1.11_0521(2012-05-21)" file. This firmware folder says v1.11 but on the main site it says the latest is v1.15.

Is there like 2 parts to updating that I'm not understanding here? I just wanna update correctly without any trouble.

If your dstwo havnt been flashed to compatibility 3DS and DSi latest firmware,you have to flash your dstwo first,then you need download both DSTWO EOS v1.11_0521(2012-05-21) and EOS V1.15,if your card has been preflashed when it out of factory,or you use NDS,then you just need download the latest firmware V1.11.

EOS is different from the firmware.

From the Beginner's Guide:
Q: What is the difference between the Kernel/OS (EOS) and the Firmware?
A: There are two things you need to keep in mind here: Internal firmware and kernel/OS. The internal firmware is the internal software of your SuperCard itself, stored *only* in your SuperCard. Whereas EOS is the kernel/OS, the software that your SuperCard runs from the microSD.

Think of your microSD as the harddisk. You put Windows (the OS) on your harddisk on your computer, and when your computer turns on it runs Windows. And from Windows it runs the rest of your programs, like games. If the microSD is your harddisk, and the EOS is your Windows, then the Firmware is the stuff your computer runs before it loads Windows.

If you've never seen it before restart your computer right now, and look at what it does after it turns itself on again. It will always load something before Windows. And that "something" is in the internal 'memory' of your computer, just like your Firmware is in the internal memory of your SuperCard.

Are you on a DS/i/XL or a 3DS? If you're on a DS/i/XL you only need to update the EOS, if you're trying to run the DSTWO on the 3DS then you'll need to update the Firmware. Check the Beginner's Guide.
