    I have confirmed this, because I am downloading it now!

    I can confirm this update definitely does exist. It's not a required update so you have to goto the update option in the firmware settings menu. My flashcarts still work, so it was probably just a minor bug fix or something.
    Apparently it gives you access to some DSiWare updates and increases the speed of the DSi Shop.

    By the way, Tempbot's report is messed up. This is the proper thread!

    Backdoor to detect flashcarts and sue you?
    Auto-updater?

    I dunno if it matters, but I tried connecting to the shop and got an error. The next time it worked fine though, even before I updated. Probeby just my slow connection.

    Oh, and maybe at a certain date it will brick flashcarts or block them or something? Time-bomb for flashcarts?
    :/

    It updated for me too 0.0

    I wonder if nintendo just accidentally made it seems like there was a new update for DSi's when it was actually the plain old 1.4.

    Back then, everyone though those threads were fake because: it gives you that screen every time, even if there's no update out there.

    Look at the Flag...
    Maybe it is a time bomb.

    Everyone think it's an harmless update so everyone do the update...

    Then 5 days after, version number change to 1.5 and every flashcarts are blocked. [​IMG]
