    [​IMG] DSi Firmware 1.5
    No Flashcarts For U
    [​IMG]

    Nintendo has possibly released a new firmware for the DSi. Little about the new supposed firmware is known, but what appears to be known is that it blocks all current flashcarts from the system.

    As this isn't confirmed to be true yet there's not much need to worry at this point, but it never hurts to be a little extra cautious within the coming days.

    I was just reading about this somewhere else. I'm not that clued up on the whole DSi cart stuff. They got round the 1.4 update by spoofing the icon and the cart header didn't they?

    I guess one of the good things of my router's wireless being f'ed up is that I am completely immune to this [​IMG]

    This is outta the blue.

    I wonder if this has any benefits over 1.4 or if it's just a useless anti-piracy firmware.

    At least Nintendo is helping phase out crappy flashcarts. Soon only the good ones will work on the DSi.

    i didnt see this coming either

    wait, if a flashcart shows up as a game, would the original game show up? or is that blocked?(i doubt)

    edit: according to the source, its a fake...
    edit: well... one person says its a fake. its not out in america apperently.

    I like the sound of that "only the strongest flashcarts will survive, R4i do you have what it takes?"

    That's what I'm wondering as well? If it's fake though it doesn't matter!

    edit : Although it would make sense for Ninty to roll out an update about now. All those kids who got their DS and flashcarts this Christmas, nice way to make sure they go into the January sales looking for games to buy.

    The update's released in Australia. :/
    Well, it is for me anyway. I didn't confirm to install the update though, so I'm still safe. :3

    EDIT: The cake is a lie!

    Well...It was inevitable. They obviously were going to have a new firmware update.

    Just wait. Some n00b will come and complain that his flashcart doesn't work after he updated to 1.5.

    If this is true.

    My stupidity of buying a DSi has slapped me in the face yet again.

    I tested it on my PAL DSi and there isn't any update. I'm still on firmware 1.4E

    This is completely out of the blue. Don't have a DSi flashcart yet, so I'm in the clear.
