Unlimited Upgrade for DSONEi/DSONEi mini

Important: Please make sure the power is enough! And don't do anything unnecessary!
DSONEi Mini user, please see the first two questions to upgrade.

  • 2013-01-19 [Notice] Declaration of DSONE not support 3DS latest system.
  • 2013-01-08 [DSi] DSONEi/Mini Upgrade&Support DSi v1.45&1.46c
  • 2012-10-13 Upgrade fireware to support NDSi ver1.44,iDSI V1.45c and 3DS 4.4.0-10x

  • Important Tips: This update 4.4.0-10x detect save chip (view Here..) , fortunately someone found out a demo game without save chip, otherwise, almost all flash card without built-in CPU will be blocked. Guess 3DS will block this demo game in the next update, if can not find out another demo game can be patched, that there is no solution at all.

    So, we remind our user, don’t upgrade your console unnecessary, it’s harder and harder for DSONEi to break 3DS firmware, maybe next time we have no idea. So, go to SC forum to check before upgrade the console.

    A: The cartridge is the same. DSONEi version sales with a firmware writer, it's convenience to upgrade the firmware.

    Q:How to upgrade DSONEi mini firmware without the firmware writer?

  • Step 5: Turn on the power, and run the upgrade file like a normal ROM, you can upgrade this card already inserted or swap a new card to upgrade (swap card only works on DS/DSLite), and then press B and wait. When see turn off power, then upgrade progess finished. Now, the DSONEi mini support the latest version console. Off cause, if this firmware declared support the latest version console.

    (Possible reasons fail to upgrade)

    2:Put the upgrade file “updateen.bin” into sub directory, not the root directory, firmware writer can not detect the upgrade file.
    3: USB port can not provide a stable power, please change a stable USB port.
