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

What would I gain by installing V1.17?

Will Installing it affect any of the game saves?

Thanks

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.

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!

Yes, the save files will all still work.

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