    I figured this deserves a thread since we seem to get these kind of troll update threads pretty often. That's in addition to people who modify their system titles and thus trigger the 3ds into thinking it needs an update, then make a thread in panic.

    So from now on, when you see an "OMG update1!!" thread and want to know if it's legit, follow/bookmark this account to know if it's the real thing. Keep in mind also, updates almost always show up late Monday evening US / early morning in EU.

    Awesome, I didn't realise yellows8 had a twitter account. Thanks for sharing.

    Edit: Okay, that's because a week ago he didn't. Seriously, the guy is like a ghost, he has had virtually no public presence online until now.

    He seems to have a lot of patience for clueless noobs, I wonder how long that will last...

    Taking bets, how long until he shuts down his Twitter on account of being harassed by clueless morons. I say 26 days.

    Wooo! It reports game version updates too!
    Although you have to do a bindiff to figure out which one, lol.
    Yellows8 probably assumes that's basic computer literacy :P

    edit: it was a swapdoodle us/eu update
