    Nintendo 3DS system update 4.2.0-9 aired yesterday and our members noted that on top of the additional minor changes, the update blocks once again most flashcarts.

    The official change log:
    1. Usual bug fixes/security updates
    2. Allows more character types to be used for passwords for saved Credit Card info to improve safety.

    The Supercard DSTWO firwmare has already been updated, you can download version 1.16 from Filetrip.

    Here is the current status of the working & non-working flashcarts, as updated by Pong20302000 in this superthread.


    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    As if the Wii even updates at all.
    I'm expecting maybe one last update when the Wii U is released and that's it.

    The speed of supercard's update makes me suspect they have their update done well before nintendo releases new firmware

    Pong20302000, the patch also depends on the hardware structure of the flashcard. As you know, r4i gold(r4ids.cn) and dstwo can always release the patch just because of their good hardware design. You can check it on this forum.

    yes there good design
    but i was correcting the person that thought it was suspicious how fast it was done

    but example Acekard take there time because they are "Testing" or waiting for DSi update so they dont have to do 2 updates

    My poor, dusty 3DS. If only I had a reason to pick it up, I might be concerned about the update. I'm sure Acekard will fix the problem well before I get the inspiration to pick that thing up again. :P

    i'm scared because the "scene" is going to run out of games to exploit with..I saw somewhere ..*maybe DS BREW* that there is only a select few games that can fool the 3DS, and every time a update comes out...it blocks another hole

    This can go on forever... flash memory size is the only limit for both Nintendo and the flashcart makers:
    - Every time N makes a new patch they only add a few extra bytes from the game the flashcart used to fake...
    -The flashcart makers add those extra bytes on their flashcart.
    - Rinse repeat.

    So in theory, the next flashcard update could be the same game we currently have, Deep Labyrinth?

    Yeah, they are so fast that I was surprised how long it took them to come up with a fix this time. Usually they put out an update in less than a day but this time it took them a bit longer. I guess the 3DS update was harder to work around than usual.

    Anyone know why the Ambassador Donkey Kong Jr. needed to be updated?

    It was confirmed that only old r4itt purple can support 3ds v4.2.0-9. The old r4itt is listed below:

    In fact, the hardware structure of ak2i is not good. The games can be used as the loader for ak2i become little and little.

    They are from the same team? Seems the old version was not supported by new team any more, right?!
