    2022-03-07.02-37-37.mp4

Bug fixes

  • Fixed really short release notes not showing

What's new?

  • (@lividhen) Universal-Updater now has a 3D banner!
    3d-banner
  • Added Dutch, Norwegian, and Romanian translations, some existing translations have been improved
  • The search tab now defaults to searching by title
  • START will now exit Universal-Updater, anything that was previously triggered by START is now SELECT
  • Notes are now shown explaining what "nightlies" and "prereleases" are before installing
  • Left/Right can now be used to scroll through release notes faster

Bug fixes

  • Fixed lagging/crashing on really long release notes

Other notes

Another relatively small update, mainly created to add the translations that have been added/updated since v3.2.3 and the new 3D banner. We've been working on the next major update in the rewrite branch with the major planned feature being DSi support, however that's stalled due to the DSi Wi-Fi library still being too unstable resulting in a lack of interest in working on it, so in the meantime we're putting out this smaller update.

Bug fixes

  • Fixes empty folders and 0 byte files not being extracted

Pretty small update this time, it's been a while since the last one though so we figured we should push out the couple changes we have at the moment.

What's New?

  • Adds Korean and most other translations have been fully completed
  • Uninstalling an app now makes it not show an icon for updates
  • Changed to a new icon with better shading

Bug fixes

  • Fixes fonts being too large on Chinese, Taiwanese, and Korean consoles
  • Blocks going to the HOME menu and quitting the app while the queue is running, which could cause buggy behavior
  • Adds safety checks for low SD card space

Other notes

A fairly minor update this time, but we've got enough bug fixes and new little things that we figured it was a good time.

Other notes

Wouldn't be a good feature update without a bug fix update a few days later, would it? ;P

Another thing that's not really a change to Universal-Updater but is relevant, we're now using our own up to date Docker image instead of the devkitPro one (at least until they update) so no more crashes in nightly builds!

We hope you enjoy the new update!

What's new?

  • Now when you select something to download it'll just add it into the queue to download in the background so you can continue using the rest of the app while it installs!
  • You can also now add all items from the current search / filter into the queue at once from the Search and Filters tab
    • When something is installed for the first time now it'll add an SD card icon next to the installed entry, only entries with the SD card icon will be updated when using this
  • When filtering you can now choose whether to only show items that match all of the selected filters or anything that matches any filter
  • The current time and battery level are now shown on the top bar
  • You can now set a custom location for FIRMs to be installed to
  • You can now choose to install 3DSX files inside a folder of the same name instead of directly to the set folder
  • You can now cancel installs and it'll clean up the current step and stop
  • Portuguese (Portugal) has be re-enabled as it's now mostly translated
  • Added themes (currently only two preset ones, custom will likely come soon™)

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a crash on trying to write a negative amount to a file if an error occurred while extracting

Also, notice: Our official 'nightly' builds are currently extremely unstable as the devkitPro docker image uses an old version of Citro2D. We recommend only using the official release or building yourself.

Have a happy St. Patrick's Day and enjoy the new update!

See v3.1.0's changelog for full notes if updating from v3.0.0

This is just a little update with a single bug fix, but it's a pretty important bug fix. For a while 7z extraction has just been randomly failing sometimes and we figured out it was due to the 2013 version of libarchive devkitPro provides, but we weren't exactly sure how to get the latest version working, we finally did so here's a little update.

The updated pkgbuild patches are at Epicpkmn11/pacman-packages, I would PR them to devkitPro's, but we're all banned so I can't. If anyone at devkitPro wants to upstream those changes please do. I will note though I have basically no idea what I'm doing when it comes to porting libraries, so please report any extraction problems and if upstreaming you may want to check if I did anything really dumb ;P

Apps that were known to be broken before but work now are:

  • open_agb_firm
  • OpenTitus (New 3DS versions)

What's New?

  • Shortcuts: When using the homebrew launcher you can now create shortcuts for easily updating specific apps
  • Screenshots: You can now see what apps look like before downloading!
    • Note: Only around a fifth of Universal-DB has screenshots at the moment, more will be added as we get around to it
  • Sizes: Downloads can now have a size so you know how big they'll be
  • Songs: You can now use a WAV file up to 10 MiB as background music, place it at sdmc:/3ds/Universal-Updater/music.wav
  • Safety: Universal-Updater now has parental controls set, at the same level as the homebrew launcher and FBI, so you don't have to worry about kids messing with it
  • Stores: There's now a list of of recommended UniStores accessible from the select UniStore menu so you don't even need to find a QR code or enter a URL
  • setoN: Okay fine, finally out of S words... but there's still more! You can now view the release Notes for apps so you know what's changed!
  • Added Ukrainian
  • Added custom font support, the font at sdmc:/3ds/Universal-Updater/font.bcfnt will be used when enabled
    • A default extended font will be downloaded on selecting Ukrainian as the default font is missing some letters
  • Toggle icons now have color when on to be more clear
  • Portuguese (Portugal), Lithuanian, and Danish have been removed for now due to lack of translations, however if anyone helps translate they will be added back

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed an out of bounds access
  • Fix grid scrolling sometimes going too far
  • Fixed crashing when staring Universal-Updater without Wi-Fi
  • Double new lines no longer break wrapped text (fixed by Citro2D v1.5.0)

Universal-Updater v3.0.0 is here with a complete overhaul to the app! Everything has been thought through and redesigned with the goal of making using Universal-Updater a much simpler and more intuitive experience.

Now when loading Universal-Updater it immediately opens the last used UniStore, by default Universal-DB, and from there you can see all the apps on the top screen and the bottom now has separate tabs for information, downloads, search, sort, and settings while still keeping the app list active on the top screen. The graphics have also been redone to give a cleaner and more modern feel.

Searching and filtering have also been improved, you can now mark apps and filter to just show apps with specific marks and/or only apps that have updates available. Searching is now case-insensitive and you can edit the filters and the search without having to dig through menus.

The old "scripts" have been dropped completely in favor of just UniStores, but no functionality is lost here as all of the apps that could be downloaded with the official scripts are now on Universal-DB and even ones with complex installation processes like TWiLight Menu++ still work correctly, plus update tracking and more information.

We hope you enjoy the new changes!

A couple notes:

  • To UniStore creators: All existing UniStores will needed to be updated to version 3, check out the wiki for more information.
  • If updating from a previous version and you get an error that the UniStore is invalid:
    1. Go to Settings
    2. Go to Select UniStore
    3. Press the update icon at the bottom on the UniStore
    4. Press A on the UniStore

v2.5.1 is mainly a bug fix release.

What got fixed?

  • Fix Config causing a return to the Home Menu / Homebrew Launcher. (On first start of v2.5.1, the config get wiped! So make sure to note all your current Config stuff.)

What got added?

  • Add %3DSX%, %NDS% and %ARCHIVE_DEFAULT%. With that, updated scripts can now declare %3DSX%/Universal-Updater.3dsx for example and it will use the 3DSX path from the config file instead!
  • Add "Special Thanks" page on the credits.

What got changed?

  • Make download Speed Display disabled on default, cause it can potential cause crashes. If you really want to have it enabled, change SHOW_SPEED to true in the config. No support for those crashes will be given though.
  • Don't display "update available" for apps that haven't been installed from that UniStore.
  • Remove FTP, cause FTP is not the focus of Universal-Updater. Use FTPD for it instead.
