The new 3ds firmware update blocks many flashcarts. We have tested compatibility with multiple cards including super card dstwo, r4i gold 3ds, ace3ds plus, r4i-sdhc 3ds rts, r4i sdhc silver, r4i sdhc dual core, and almost all of the flashcarts are confirmed to be blocked. According to the test, only R4i Gold 3DS RTS, r4idsn and super card Dstwo are the first to break the 3DS protections.
Please do not worry, other flashcart official teams and manufacturers will release firmware updates to bypass the new protection of the 3DS soon. Please wait patiently and do not update your 3DS/3DS XL console until the update for the flashcart is out first. Stay tuned for more informatiion on 3DS newest 6.2.0-12 J/E/U system update!
