    EDIT: sources contradict each other. Some claim that the update blocks the remaining cards, some claim that the cards still work and that the 1.4.2C is the asian equivalent to the 1.4.1U. So take the following with a with a grain of salt.

    Edit 2: the EZ-Flash Vi team confirmed that firmware 1.4.2C could be identical to the 1.4.1U one. The EZ-Flash Vi still works on it and they have released a video to prove it.




    ---------
    In the previous thread we informed you of a new DSi system update that blocked the most popular flashcarts, but strangely a few were spared such as the EZ-Flash Vi, the iSmart Premium, Hyper R4i and a few others.

    Well, it didn't take long for Nintendo to notice and release another update, DSi firmware version 1.4.2C. A few users in Asia and Europe have confirmed the update, though it doesn't seem to have spread to other parts of the world yet. This update is known to block all the remaining flashcarts, including the EZ-Flash Vi, iSmart Premium, R4i and everything.

    Great job Nintendo, now hopefully for you this update will hold a little longer than the previous ones. Flashcart teams are already racing to release fixes, we are likely to revive the same situation as last time (R4i SDHC Gold Hyper 1.4.2C anyone? [​IMG] )

    Is there a reason for the C after 1.4.2?

    Haha, I suppose Nintendo didn't want Sony to be the only company blocking piracy.

    Me thinks the original update was to lure unsuspecting folks into a false sense of security then when they got around to updating they wouldn't look at the version number and get screwed.

    Lawl, Nintendo is showing they can too block piracy. This might be about PKMN black and white, I bet you on that one.

    However, I won't buy any more PKMN games after HG/SS.

    Nintendo is trying..... Can't blame people for trying to stop piracy.

    Meh. Glad i have a DS lite

    Wait.... But how can they block this exploit without blocking the game it acts as?

    Keep telling yourself that. You probably said the same thing when they released Ruby/Sapphire.

    Two points of order:

    1. The truly addicted will not stop playing Pokémon. Someday the well will run dry. Not soon, but someday. Until then, the temptation of catching a grass monkey and a chinchilla is simply too tempting.

    2. I'm starting to think this blocking party is genuinely about the new Pokémon. This again makes me glad I got a pre-order in for both.

    3. I still am not totally convinced that there's something wonderful waiting in 1.4 that isn't being properly exploited. And I'll continue saying that till I'm proven otherwise.

    Anyone completely sure on how this update works yet? Im interested. They must be doing better checks. Also, anyone have the real games the blocked cards use, just to make sure [​IMG]

    comfirmed, the 1.4.2C is on the iQue DSi. I think it equal the 1.4.1U.

    EZVi , iSmart DS, HyperR4i with the newest firmware are workable. not blocked

    Tu shay, Nintendo. I wonder if they'll do this every time some form of patch is released. DSi 1.4.9.3.5U
