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.

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.

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, why are they not using the same games over and over?

Team supercard are awesome and super fast with there updates well done team.

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.

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?!
