I just bought a 3DS that came with firmware 2.1.0 and updated it to 2.2.0 with Mario Kart 7. I found out online though that before the update, it is supposed to show the firmware that it will update to on the touch screen. This did not happen for me. Is there any way that I can enable that option? Which firmware first introduced the ability to show the game card update firmware on the touchscreen before you update? I am also wondering if games that were first produced with older updates now come with newer updates when they are manufactured. For example, New Super Mario Bros. 2 originally came with 4.1 when the first game cards for it were being manufactured. Do the copies manufactured late last year or this year come with a newer update, such as 7.2? I also heard that when the latest firmware is downloaded and the 3DS is encouraging you to update, then when the game card tries to update, it will install the latest firmware. Is this true? I do not want my new 3DS to go to waste after buying it specifically for using a Gateway card and creating and running homebrew.
