Nintendo DSi firmware 1.4 Blocks Flash Cards

Nintendo is at it again, trying really hard to stomp any homebrew and piracy on their devices. They have just released System Menu 1.4 in Europe and in America that brings support for facebook but also blocks out a flash card.

If you use the AceKard 2i I would suggest that you didn’t update your DSi since it will not work after the update. (Be aware of your Wi-fi!) As Nintendo may update it automatically without you knowing (its in the terms of agreement). If you do not want to update I’d recommend to turn off your wireless connection in your DSi settings.

Here are the following changes for DSi system menu…

  • Facebook support in “Nintendo DSi Camera” application. You can now share your photos in your facebook account.
  • New version of Nintendo DSi Browser
  • Acekard 2i blocked. Other cards confirmed also at GBATemp
