    Hello everyone!

    I hope I'm posting at the right place!

    So a the title says, is there a list of retail games that don't ask for update or that update upto FW 4.5? This way, I can still have the possibility of purchasing a Gateway or any other flashcarts in the future, or be eligible for any future exploits (just to be safe).

    Maybe I didn't look around well enough, but I didn't find such a list/thread. It'd be really helpful if someone could post such a list!

    Thanks!

    I'm looking to buy:
    • Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D (I'm pretty sure this one does not need any updates, it's a relatively old release now)
    • Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
    • Fire Emblem: Awakening
    • [any of your game suggestions that doesn't update/updates to 4.5 max.]
    Thanks!

    My kids have v4.2 & 4.4 and run r4i gold carts. I have tested Mario Kart 7, Luigis Mansion 2, New Super Mario Bros, Super Mario Land, Lego Batman 2, Lego Marvel Super Heroes, Spiderman, Sonic Lost World, Rayman 3D, Zelda Ocarina, Mario & Luigi's Dream Team.

    None of these ask for an update.

    Hope this helps.

    if you have a 3DS flashcart and use ROM (not cartridges), it never asks you to update.
    if you use cartridge, you can refer to the release list website so see which version the game asks to install.

    shouldn't this question be asked the other way around?
    what games DO ask for an update?

    ...who am i to judge :)

    Thanks! But the aforementioned site by Pong is really informative. I highly recommend checking it if you ever have a similar question to mine!
