    Someone correct me if I am wrong but my kids tell me it theirs will not update because I have Parental Controls turned on. I did a check a few days ago and it is on 8.x. I wonder if that works for the Wii U as well?

    Only yourself to blame, as you should have created a fake Wifi connection and monitored their use of original carts, if used with updates on them. 4.5 consoles are still around if you look better.

    did you make a nand backup of your 4.x FW, if you you can get the hardmod installed and have it downgraded.....and with a port installed you could always downgrade if your kids acidentally update again
    parental controls do not block system updates, all you can do is set up fake wifi settings in sysnand and make sure they dont have any retail cards with 4.x+ on them

    Also new member, ordered my Sky3DS from them on Tuesday still waiting on delivery, no tracking information.
    They estimate 3-5 days so hopefully it's here today or tomorrow.

    Turns out they had the Royal Mail signed for tracking number (after I contacted them requesting it).
    Still not here, but then again the post man hasn't done the rounds yet.

    Gambia, The
    Well, I didn't order from there, but i just had a quick glance over the site and noticed the following:

    http://www.new3dscard.co.uk/micro-sd-cards-with-games-c-11/

    They are selling SD-cards preloaded with roms..... :wacko:

    That is highly shady in my book, I personally wouldn't order from a shop that is involved in such illegal business.

    because if there is none in sysnand, any you set up in emunand will copy over to sysnand....but if sysnand is full you don't have to worry about them being copied over

    That's what all the sites say "officially" but it's really all coming from China then Royal Mail.
    Every site I've used in the last couple of years is like that.
