    hi there i just picked up my kid a used DSI XL and it has firmware V1.4.1 on it what are the benefits to updating it to the latest version .
    what is new in the latest update .

    also the card we are using is from R4ids.com (R4I Gold V2.0) which i have updated to the laterst firmware which shows Dora usa and is suppose to support

    support 3DS V2.1 system and DSi /XL/LL 1.43 system.

    what version is the latest one out there (for the DS) ,i was to scared to let it go online and check for update .

    will it be safe to do an update or is it not worth it .

    thanks in advance for all info .

    i regret upgrading to the newest firmware... the reason i regret is now i can't flash firmware for an r4 on my 1.4.3 dsi or dsxl (i use acekard which i love ftw) i upgraded for the dumb reason of getting legend of zelda four swords!

    Nothing.
    Unless blocking R4s are a good idea, you think.

    Essentially, I would leave it. You don't know what dodgy AP Nintendo have up their money-printing sleeves.
