    Yesterday I attended a 3DS event in Rome, luckily there was a retail unit (retail system menu, channels, the back faceplate didn't say "dev unit") with NO cartridges inserted.
    I had a DSTWO, a friend of mine had an iEvo with the EU bootloader in his DSi.

    Sadly, DSi Mode iEvo fails. I don't know if they blocked the whole cooking coach exploit (I don't own the game), but it seems likely.

    Cool! Confirmed to work on the EUR, means it SHOULD work with USA 3DS's.

    Also LMAO at the fact they will "brick" later when updated. [​IMG] (it's a joke, people, so ya know).

    I will test it out at the Demo downtown, maybe get some footage if it works if I bring my camera.

    I am glad we have an event here in Chicago NOT at Gamestop the day before release lol.

    It seems that Nintendo doesn't give a single fuck about flashcarts.

    Wow, you have balls to do that at the 3DS event.
    On an unrelated note, Nintendo do give a fuck about flashcarts, obviously.

    What's the most they could do to you? Kick you out? Just get your fill on the 3DS previews and do it before leaving. That's what I plan to do if I go.

    It's not that big of a deal.

    Thanks a bunch for taking the risk and posting these! While the likelihood that Nintendo would update the firmware in less than a month until launch for millions of already packaged units was low confirmation is excellent.

    Edit: Just realized; someone should forward these to AceKard; it would prompt them to release their firmware update, now that it's confirmed that the firmware is unchanged.

    A small *fuck* ?
    Every single company cares- this is a loss of massive profit we're talking about here. I suppose Nintendo will probably disable 3DSes with Flashcart logs on with their May 5th Update.

    They can't steal my property. If there is nothing stating I can't plug in my own card at the event, they have no legal reason to take it. It's not like I am stealing from them, or hacking their device. I would SUE the SHIT out of them if they tried to steal my property.

    @Davi92 : Do you know which firmware version the 3DS was using?
    original or updated 1.0.0-1 with any 3D video demo ?

    No, it was outside the "main" event building, and the few people from the staff weren't looking.
