I've been waiting until I have enough funds to get a Gateway 3DS, so I've been careful to keep my WiFi off so it won't auto update. I wasn't too worried about games forcing me to update because to my knowledge the newest update available on a game cart is Super Smash Bros 3DS with update 8.1.

I received Super Smash Bros 3DS today and when I started the game it asked me to update to 9.2.0-17U. I visited the Gateway 3DS website and confirmed it supported up to 9.2 so I went ahead with the update. It wasn't until halfway through the update it dawned on me that SSB should only have 8.1 on it. I did a quick Google search and can't find any other reports of people receiving 9.2.0-17U updates from SSB. As a matter of fact, I searched "3DS 9.2.0-17U" and can't find one occurrence where somebody states they have this firmware.

Is anyone else aware of SSB holding a 9.2 update now? I have a NES 3DS XL that came with 7.4, it's never been connected to the internet, and the copy of SSB was purchased at GameStop on February 11th.

EDIT: I uploaded the ROM and a user confirmed the 9.2 update is on this cart.

That's very odd... I just purchased a copy of Smash and a NN3DS XL today, and I didn't receive any messages about me updating firmware, considering i've played Smash for a few hours now. I haven't even enabled Wifi/connected to my AP; maybe you want to consider forgetting your network.

I can't forget it if I've never connected to it :)

Not sure how to dump the ROM. I can upload an image of the firmware version if you'd like to see that?

Sadly I don't have the resources to do that. Would you still like to see an image of the firmware version?
Na, that's not necessary. I guess we'll just have to trust you :P

Honestly, the 17 on the end of the firmware version pretty much proves you updated via cart but ctr.exe/rom_tool tells a bunch of other stuff that's quite interesting.

It's not too surprising. They could very possibly be rolling out new game cartridges with even perhaps the game itself updated to latest version.
I'm curious to know what the newest version is and what version it normally ships with. Mine says 1.0.4 so I'm guessing the original version was 1.0.

Newest update for SSB is 1.0.5. The -17U looks like somehow you have the eshop from 7.x on 9.2. Which makes sense I guess if you used the cart to update from 7.x with no internet.

Would you be open to trading your SSB cart for a new one?

I might be. Before I decide to trade I'd like to know what benefits could come from a game cart holding a 9.2 update.

In the interest of Science(TM), please consider reporting details and/or providing photographs of the cart; such as the front/label side and the back side, and any identifying strings. I would expect every easily-visible detail to be identical, but you never know...
The PCB might have some visible difference, but I can't expect you to pry open your cart.

9.2 is the last fully exploitable firmware. It's the most recent version that works with gateway on sysnand. The rom could also be useful for updating emunand (gateway can update from rom, don't know about MT).

For the -U region I don't believe there were any N3DS released below 9.0, so it has no significance there. A JP SSB with 9.2 would be good for getting all these JP N3DS people bought off of 8.1, but that's unrelated.

My interest is in dumping the rom with firmware update, for emunand updating. I'm not actually interested in keeping the cart; but I assume you wouldn't be interested in lending it via mail to be dumped.

I'd certainly like to see a photo of the version number in settings, along with pics of the cart itself.

We've had enough trolls here of late, so I'm a little sceptical.

>Own an 3DS XL which comes with an SD
>Own SSB
>Doesn't have resources to dump

okay
Wait, he has an old 3DS XL?

You can just use the gateway launcher to dump via browser exploit without having a gateway.

Forgive me for not being aware of this. Can someone link me to this exploit and I'd be glad to try it.
