System: Nintendo 3DS Ver. 4.1.0-8U Flash cards: 1) R4i GOLD 3DS Revolution for Nintendo 3DS (Revision C) 2) Acekard 2i for 3DS / DSi 3) Supercard DSTWO for 3DS / DSi XL（LL）/ DSi with EOS I just bought everything above. Note that I will be giving this system to my 12-year old son. I just want to get everything working first. Just one card for him is enough, the other two are extras. I was hoping to give him the R4i card. For the past half hour, I have tried updating the R4i card with the latest software from r4ids.cn in order to then upgrade the version on my 3DS to 4.5.0 and have the card work, but I cannot do it. When I try, I just get "FAIL." Can I do this update with my 3DS or do I need a DSi or DSLite? The readme file sort of implied I could do this with my 3DS alone. Most importantly, how often does Nintendo ask you to update the software? If it is not often (or never) I can simply give my son the system with the current version and have everything work fine, right? (I have already tested it and the NDS games work on the 3DS with my R4i card.) What I worry about is that he will update it (either on purpose or by mistake) if he gets a popup from Nintendo or something. What should I do?
