    Can someone upload all the updated 3DS Update 2 files for Supercard DSTWO. I only have the 3DS so I can't update it myself...

    doesn't work that way, the files that are on your microSD card get flashed into the DS2's memory, you have to physically do it with that cart

    In simple terms, there is a special place for the firmware within the flashcart (the flashcart itself, not the microSD). As it is currently, you have no way to put the new firmware into that "special place" so there would be no reason giving you something that you still can't put in the correct place. You need a DSLite/DSPhat/DSi (with a firmware supported by whatever firmware is already on your flashcart).

    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.

    it really is well-explained, i always get people completely confused about the differences and even i was confused for a while as different people said different things
