    It's safe to assume they will do the same for all 3DS flashcard software, including any future cards.

    Is this about the new 3DS R4i Gold Deluxe or whatever it's called, or does this apply to the old DS mode only R4i Gold as well?

    Not sure if sarcasm, but how does a piracy-related card become "good" if Nintendo takes down the files?

    Nintendo wants to get rid of all piracy, no matter how "good" or bad.

    On one side, I can agree with Nintendo.
    They want to prevent another disaster like they had with the R4.
    Ironically, the R4 made the DS popular.

    On the other side, it's not copyrighted software.

    It's because, of the R4i Gold Deluxe files. They including parts of the 3DS firmware, like Gateway.

    The kernel isn't, but the firmware is, since it contains part of a ROM.

    Depending upon how they use it there could be a case that it is a legitimate use of it. From what I understand the current 3ds implementations probably would not get this but hey.

    Anyway this is probably just another less legal aggro the better situations, it is not like it will be hard to find either.

    why don't you just remove all files? you know they are coming after everything anyway, you are just buying time.

    Isn't it better to use torrent to spread the files?
    If Nintendo can't stop games on torrent sites, they have 0% chance to stop firmware files!

    Between insane and insecure
    I think it might just be wiser to make a stickied thread listing the files we can't post. Because I am pretty sure we are also not going to be able to post the files for the 3DSLink either. Which from the looks of it, means pretty much any future 3DS flashcard to come out, we won't be able to post nor host the files for them.

    Good idea, lets shut down filetrip. Might as well shut down the forum too while we are at it.

    It's just a matter of time until DMCA makes a notice ordering GBATemp to take down 3DS Link files.
