    Yep, that was a quick one...
    I only own an AceKard so I don't know if any other carts are blocked.

    For us curious minds out there, does this actually provide any updates, or is it yet another update purely to play the blocking game?

    What 3DS update hasn't been meaningful in some way?

    Considering how small the time between the last update and this one, I'd say just a new anti-piracy measure.
    Nintendo.com says,
    "Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience."
    Which is just Nintendo BS for Anti-Piracy.

    Off the top of my head, the last one, which supposedly enhanced eshop security (which literally could have been near anything that made it even remotely more secure), and otherwise provided what this update supposedly provides. It isn't as if Nintendo has only released useful updates on the 3DS. I imagine most of them will be like the PSP updates that offered little but new AP measures.

    Yes, it allowed you to enter more numbers for security purpose. :P

    Glad I grabbed the updated SwapNote when I did. I pray that KH3D doesn't require this update.

    That would probably depend on wether or not KH3 needs the patch that the JAP version has...

    I've had the 3DS for ages and I've only seen 1 useful update and the rest are Anti-Piracy updates.
    WHY would they even bother fighting a loosing battle? The Carts are updated within a few hours/days so it seems pointless to me that they keep releasing Anti-Piracy updates.

    The price put me off getting a DSTwo, seeing as the main with this and the AK2i (as far as I could see) was GBA/SNES emulation. As emulation was reviewed as being mediocre at best I opted for an AK2i. With the last 2 updates being speedy as hell, wish I'd gone for DSTwo, despite the price difference.

    I think the SuperCard team has a Nintendo employee on their side, and if so, awesome

    Why? Because as a company they're trying their best to protect their product from software piracy and I wouldn't really call it a losing battle since for every time they block a flashcart it will take additional time for users of that flashcart to recover.
