Is it just me, or does Supercard NOT have the latest firmware on their website?

    Sure, they have 1.25, but the firmware downloaded here http://eng.supercard.sc/manual/dstwo/download.htm was last modified in 2013 (bad thing, as Nintendo was still patching cards back then) and the one linked here http://forum.supercard.sc/thread-9465-1-1.html 404s. I ask this because somehow, I got downgraded to a lower version of the firmware without knowing. Would I have to use flashcardtimewarp (something which I have no idea how to install on sysnand) to use my DSTWO+ again? Or does somebody have the download for ANY version that supports at least 9.2?

    EDIT: Original text kept for honesty (and because I can't figure out how to change the title). But I figured out how to (possibly) recover from this! Source: http://forum.supercard.sc/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=12588&pid=90809&page=1&extra=page=1#pid90809

    REQUIREMENTS:
    Your DSTWO+ of course (Original DSTWOs need not apply)
    An O3DS/2DS/(N3DS?) with 4.5-9.2
    The download from the source above
    Patience

    1. This probably only works if your DS can still recognize your DSTWO+. Verify that it does before proceeding.
    2. Download that thing from the source above and put Launcher.dat into the root of your 3DS/2DS/N3DS' SD card. Make sure your Micro SD card is not in your DSTWO+, and insert it into your console.
    3. Launch your browser and go to http://go.gateway-3ds.com
    4. When it says to press a key to continue, if it does not update within a minute of pressing a key, then remove your DSTWO+ and immediately put it back in. I honestly don't know if it's supposed to hang after it says "program ok", but either way power off your 3DS.
    5. Turn on your system, and launch the cart. If it works, you're done! If it doesn't, move to step 6.
    6. Experiment with various combinations of having the cart in before going to the Gateway page or not, having the MicroSD card in, and OS versions if you're willing to risk that.
    7. If all else fails, then ask your seller for a new cart.

    Got the same problem here with my old DSTWO. I'm in need of a 2015 firmware file. All I can find are old 2013 ones. Does anyone have the file "ds2_update_20150703.zip" on their PC and would be so kind and upload it somewhere?

    Thanks, much appreciated

    I would love to have updated firmware as well. I just got mine and I'm running 1.14 currently.

    There weren't any firmware updates for the DSTWO during the past 2-3 years because they weren't necessary. The files from 2013 are the current ones.

    is the new firmware just for 3ds games? the install instructions didnt say anything about loading 3ds mode, and i couldnt get the firmware to install (nothing happens).

    I got my DSTwo plus a week or so aga and set it up with the only EOS available on the website (1.14 - but the help on dsgame says 1.11). I havent tried Gateway 3DS mode because my 2DS is updated to the newest version and my understanding is it wont work. I dont have any specific need to update, just want to start on the most current version if it is more stable (and if it enables me to run gateway mode on my 2DS for 3ds games)
