just look at your system settings...
Ver. 7.1.0-16 E
It says, please help.
you dont need to give the serial number and it is better to don't show it...
if you recently bought it and updated it, then i am sure it's 7.x firmware
go on the console settings, in the first screen it will happear a big number which is the firmware version
Warning: Spoilers inside!
Not compatible with 3ds flashcarts.
you can only use a flashcart to play DS games or old console emulators (like game boy)
Oh boy, well thanks for the responses I really appreciate it. I take it there are no workarounds for me at this point in time? Gah what a waste
Not any more it's not. You bought an aussie 3ds xl. Most australian sets comes with <4.5 which WAS compatible with flash carts. But you updated. So nope.
FYI Target stores here (Aus) seem to hold plentiful stock of 4.1 firmware units. I have had several (and I mean several) units purchased for myself, and a few for friends - all on 4.1.
Perhaps, take it back to your retailer stating a problem with it or some such story - get a refund, then re-enter the 3DS lucky dip and see if you can purchase another <4.5 unit.
Last new unit on 4.1 was purchased 1 month ago from a local Target.
Never EVER download updates when you first buy the console. Always check what software is hackable and how to safely update the console.
I feel sorry for you, but still you can sell the 3ds and get a used 4.5 easily
I know a store where they still sell the correct fw 4.5 U-10
I feel pretty bummed out right now, I got mine from JB hi fi. I'm thinking of what to say to them should I return it. Thanks for the advice though.
Hey do you mind sharing the store? =/
Never ever will I download updates again! What mayhem
I took an unsuccessful firmware version purchase back to them (PS Vita mind you) and stated that the unit was turning off randomly when running games and apps, with an audible pop from the speakers when it did.
They accepted the refund, no further questions asked - and did not fiddle with the unit to test it. I recommend a method similar to this, if you are OK with it morally. Aus consumer laws protect you here as they cannot reasonably deny the refund.
How long ago did you purchase it?
Maybe try saying that it was the wrong firmware when you purchased it so someone must have unsealed the box. Or something along these lines. Just dont do it if they are busy.
^ that's a good idea
It's well within the 90 day period and that reason sounds plausible enough to work! I couldn't think of something better myself tbh! Thank you a lot person :] I will call them up 2 marrow and try to get it exchanged/refunded. Thank you everyone this forum is great.
I might try the firmware reason too to add to this, wish me luck guys and ty again :]
Let us know how it went
You're welcome. Let us know how you go.
I no longer want to live on this planet.
