    My card has never been updated with the latest firmware. Still actually using V1.10 [​IMG]

    What would I gain by installing V1.17?

    Will Installing it affect any of the game saves?

    Thanks [​IMG]

    Well...the answer largely depends on whether or not you have a real or a fake DSTT.

    If it's a fake, upgrading would result in a destroyed flash cart. To avoid that, you should install the version of 1.17 that has the fake-killer code disabled.

    Fake-killer code notwithstanding, there have been several compatibility fixes since 1.10, so more newer games will work. That would be the main reason for upgrading.

    Thanks for that Bri. [​IMG]
    Looking at the pictures mine appears to be genuine (Curved Metal SD Housing), although I wouldn't like to chance it. So I've downloaded the "Fake-Killer Code" V1.17.

    Sorry, I have to ask again. If I update to V1.17 will all the sav files still work? Seems a silly question to ask, but my son would be spitting feathers if he lost 'em! [​IMG]

    Yes, the save files will all still work.

    And I hope you meant the "Fake-Killer Code Disabled" version 1.17 above!

    By the way, there's a fake checker program included in this archive (along with the Fake-killer disabled firmware and a program to recover a destroyed fake): http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=4086
