The same can be said for any other electronic device. A slight discrepancy about the information provided though is the size of the update. The download is 1GB, but it then de-compresses the information into a 5GB update. goron ano nice job nintendo, 🙁 now im scared when i get my U in mail im going to brick it cuz of shitty net koenig The problem wont come from downloading the update, but turning it off once it is being implemented. I think you should be fine, best of luck.
