Latest 3DS Update Blocks 95% of Flash Cards

The latest 3DS update has blocked around 95% of flash cards users. While most claim they use these flash cards for indie game development the truth is cards like the R4 have played a huge role in illegal downloading of games for the DS, DSi and 3DS systems. Nintendo-Gamer recently spoke to flash card manufactures SuperCard who informed that Nintendo’s latest update has blocked around 95% of the worlds flash cards for the DS and 3DS systems. Heres what flash card maker SuperCard had to say:

The 3DS system has been updated to 4.4.0-10x. Official information indicates improved security. We researched immediately and found out that the 3DS system update detects save IC on the PCB. On the current market, most cards are without save IC, so are blocked now. This is a hardware defect, software can not solve it. So 95% of the cards in the world have been blocked.
