    Should I update my 3DS firmware?

    Right now I'm running my 3DS on firmware ver. 2.2.0-3j and I just ordered the acekard 2i.... I was curious if I should update my 3DS firmware or leave it as is? Because in the past i knew it to be easier to soft mod the wii with the earlier firmware.... Any advice would be greatly appreciated! thanks in advanced!

    According to their site they will run on the latest firmware. You may want to get the card first and make sure it(the acekard) has the latest firmware update installed on it first though. Most of the flashcarts need a regular ds to update.

    You should leave your 3DS on V2.1.0-3 until you make sure your Acekard 2i can work on the latest 3DS V4.1.0-8. And just as skellinator said, the resell should tell you whether the card has been pre-updated. If not, you need to take a DS to do the update. Here is a step by step guide if you need it in future.

    Never update your 3DS before you update your flashcart!
    Do yourself a favor, don't buy crappy flashcarts.

    Nintendo 3DS firmware update process is now possible in the world. Updating include new features like video recording, it allow to download games from 3DS etc. We can update our Nintendo 3DS firmware using wireless broadband connection this will receive update of 3DS firmware.

    I'm pretty sure we all know that!

    Did you read the first post? The user was asking if the update would kill the ability to use their flashcart.

    Hey skellinator, just watch his signature, you will guess why he left the pointless post.
