Is it recommended to keep the 3ds off the net if using a flashcard?

    I think I read that Nintendo will automatically update the system if there is an update available. Sounds like it makes sense not to leave the 3DS online?

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    I don't think there's anything to worry about until the hack is released -- which seems a ways down the road.

    if that day comes:

    Do you mean a hack to play 3ds roms? But wouldn't an update also disable flashcards like the r4?

    You're prompted to install the update. The warning screen says you have to plug the 3DS into a power supply and get permission from an adult if you're under 18, hence no automatic updates.

    I actually use netflix and my DS2 at the same time. I haven't had any forced updates yet.

    I'm a superstitious person. So I keep my wifi off when i'm using my flashcart and press the A button rapidly when i'm capturing Pokemon.
