DSi firmware upgrade blocks flash carts

Tuesday, September 28, 2010 · 0 comments

Nintendo's recent 1.4.1U firmware update for the DSi got flash cart owners up-in-arms. The update does not actually do anything fancy in terms of functionality, it just blocks the use of several known flash carts used by DSi gamers to play homebrew or, god forbid, pirated DSi games.

Some of the known DSi flash cart affected are Acekard 2i, Supercard DSTwo, M3i Zero, iPlayer and DSTTi. A couple got spared such as EZ-Flash Vi, iSmart DS and Hyper R4i.

Too bad for homebrew enthusiasts. Some people just don't get that flash carts are not all for pirating and piracy :(
