    Neither, flashcarts work fine.

    If you weren't updated before with the 4/25 update, then flashcarts will be broken.

    edit: Only the 4/25 update changed anything for flashcart users. The update that happened yesterday (or the day before) and the MK7 patch did nothing to prevent flashcarts.

    So just as I suspected, GoNintendo is misinformed. Where would they have gotten that info?

    So they finally showed it was possible. Just tried one of the affected maps online, a bunch of people still tried to use it. I laughed. Now then, Nintendo...now that you've shown you can make patches...how about letting us give you our money so we can have more courses? :D

    I was referring to the part that said "the firmware now patches the game on-the-fly, while in memory, instead of messing with the game files itself." That implies something similar to dynamic IPS patching rather than just loading full replacement files from the SD card like Riivolution does (or did, if they added xdelta style differential patching recently). It could be done that way but it would slow things down to patch the files from the cart in memory on the fly rather than just load already patched replacements from the SD card and ignore the originals on the cart completely.

    the update is only 45 blocks. thats nothing.
    also SOME save data is saved to card. their are two formats of 3ds crt cards for us to purchase. one with writeable memory included and one with read only. the read only has only game data. the read only plus writeable memory costs a lot more per unit.
    most save data is stored on your SD card for nearly everything anyway. it is called extra data on crt.

    As shown by the save dongle, retail game saves are stored on the cart. Its possible to store them on the SD, but in reality this is only done for street pass data and eshop games.

    This took quite awhile, but hey, at least it's out. A good stride forward for Nintendo, even if it's only taking baby steps for now.

    To people not knowing about what the patch affects, you nearly need only to read through the download consent blurb before the download. It clearly states what the patch does and does not effect.

    Kinda funny no one talked about a bypass yet.
    I suppose it would be a easy bypass too.

    Never tried to capture/proxy my 3DS yet.. good time to try so now. :)

    well, it's not like they're changing huge amounts of assets, just tiny fixes here and there. they're just re-arranging invisible walls perhaps, to block off parts you're not supposed to get to. but yes, i suppose as the assets they want to change get complex, it would slow things down, but not significantly.

    but yes, you might be right about swapping assets off of the SD card. it seems more straightforward.

    This should sate some of the anger torrent people had when Ninty hadn't planned on a patch.
