This update mainly fixed 3 eshop games (“HarmoKnight” , “Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies”,”Super Mario Bros.

So , this post aims to show you how to update MT-card to the latest hardware Ver1.3 & software Ver1.2 via picture presentation.
1. Download latest mt-card hardware ver1.3 and software ver1.2. Then extract the rar file.
Open the “MT_Card_Updater_1.3″ folder. You will see the “MT_Card_Updater v1.3.exe” file.
Connect the MT-card 3ds flash card (yellow card) with your computer.
Run “MT_Card_Updater v1.3.exe”. Make sure the MT card is well connected to the computer while updating; don’t disconnect, or your MT card may be damaged if you disconnect.

Click the “Y” button to continue.
Just wait the update complete.
Copy “launcher.dat” into your SD card to replace the old one.
We are paying attention to the 3DS flashcarts for a long time. As we known, Gateway 3ds is the first one can run 3DS roms and NAND-emulate.
Then R4i Gold 3DS Deluxe and 3DSLink Released with cheaper price.
At the end, MT-Card 3DS came out, which was the first and only 3ds flash card can support multi 3ds roms in one Micro sd card, it really has many powerful functions for players, and just now , we noticed MT-Card official reseller Digimartz.com news: MT-Card V1.1 firmware & V1.2 Hardware released! With this update , it can support NAND-emulate, region free,ESHOP,NAND backup, the popular 3ds games are all available(such as Pokemon X/Y , Animal crossing …) . And so far as I known, the V1.2 firmware , which fixed many eshop games (eg: Harmo Knight , Phoenix Wright 5, Super mario bros deluxe) , will be coming soon!
So, till now, MT-Card’s functions and also the great value are the best 3ds flashcart as i known. Even for the OMEGA 2.1 firmware released , the GATEWAY 3DS‘s multirom function had been extended and become the 2nd to support 3DS Multi-ROM.
MT card as the world first multirom support 3ds flashcart , such as the multirom , emunand, eshop games, pokemon xy available those wonderful features brings us new feelings in gaming experience. Perhaps , we are eager to know more about the mt card by a professional review for us.
The review can make us more easily understand the mt-card through Packaging and Contents,Design and Impressions,Hardware Requirements,Software Requirements,Grey Shell Flashcart Setup,White Shell Flashcart Setup and Compatibility… And lastly getting an objective conclusion below
+ Easy setup and use
+ Ability to back-up save files
+ Works with all currently dumped games 04/10/2014
+ Local multiplayer works
– No online gameplay
– Only supports FAT32
– No homebrew (yet)
– Requires a 3DS on older firmware
As far as 3DS flashkits go in terms of presentation the MT-Card is pretty average. The flashcarts are stocked in blister packaging with resealable plastic cases. The 3DS flashcart is made of a nice durable plastic which could last through your typical wear and tear. It also has teeth to leverage the device against the 3DS as well as metal screws to secure the PCB in the shell. On the top of the shell there’s a switch, micro USB port, and microSD card slot. The DS flashcart included on the other hand is just a restickered R4 made with lesser quality plastic, doesn’t have teeth, and is held together by small plastic pegs.
Gameplay on the MT-Card is pretty much the same as you’d expect on a retail 3DS game with a couple exceptions. The exceptions being that online multiplayer features do not function and roms take a couple seconds longer to boot. With the addition of multirom you’ll be able to flawlessly transition from game to game without having to re-flash a rom to your microSD card.
With the MT-Card’s latest 1.2 update the MT-Card is now able to play all currently dumped roms regardless of region. That being said having the entire 3DS game library at your disposal to play will last you quite a long time and the only downside I see to this is having trouble deciding what game to play.
Overall (not an average)
With all things considered the MT-Card has a good build, works as advertised, and is getting updates from the MT-Card team. The only downfalls being no online functionality in titles, it only supports FAT32 formatted microSD, it currently doesn’t allow you to play homebrew, and that it requires a 3DS on 4.5 or lower to use it.
Mt team had announced new software 1.2 for Mt card. This software updated to enable you to play Pokemon X / Y freely, and the Animal crossing new leaf is also available. That’s a amazing new update for mt card users.
Let’s look at a proof video for that:
MT official released a new software ver. 1.2 yesterday .With the MT-card V1.2, MT card supports animal crossing, pokemon XY. This update program is to update the FPGA chip and CPU data, no need to use another launcher.dat, same V.1.1 launcher.dat in the SD card.
MT-Card is going to support games that use NAND Saving. That means, that Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Pokemon X and Pokemon Y are going to be supported soon.
This video was recorded using a private beta directly from the MT-card Team. Just in case that anyone wants to have video proof:
