    I have a 3DS preordered and I need a good card for my ds games. This card seems to be the ticket but I have a question:

    Is it true you have to have a DSI to update the firmware to work on 3DS? Because all I have is the original NDS and really don't know anyone who has a DSI ([​IMG] I'm so lonely)

    I have been using evolution for so long and I dont want to pay more for ievolution and get less features than what the DSTWO has!

    Thanks!

    I dont think you need specifically a DSi to update. I think a DS or DSLite will be just fine.

    original ds will work fine
    just put the update file on the root of the sd and when you start up the sc2 in the ds it will prompt you to perform the update [​IMG]

    Ah wow. I hope I don't have to make another thread for this but basically so am I to understand that if I order a Supercard DS2 for my 3DS I have on preorder, I won't be able to use it because I currently possess no older model DS to update it with?

    Yes, but you can always borrow one. The update takes only about a minute.

    EDIT: Or maybe you can order one which is already flashed.

    Oh okay. So i'll pretty much just need to put an update file on the memory card from home and then find any DS to just boot it up in? I should be able to do that. So far no other card has really stood out as better so i'm still set on getting one.

    Yes, that's right. Also, this is the update file.

    How to use: Copy ds2update.dat file and the newest OS to the root of your microsd card, then insert DSTWO into the DS (or DSLite, DSi which can work with DSTWO) to upgrade your DSTWO. Make sure DO NOT power off until it finished upgrading!
    Important: The firmware v1.09 must work with the latest EOS v1.11.[/p]
