    No it won't, going on the www.r4i-sdhc.com (labeled r4i-sdhc.tw for some reason) website referes to a completely different product, where the 3DS update for that card is obtained within the "Upgrade" menu.

    Can someone help? I have an R4i Gold 3DS card from www.r4ids.cn and when I heard the card worked on 3.0.0-5 w/ the 1.51b update I went ahead and updated the 3DS to it before updating the card as I have a NDSL and figured I could update the card later. I downloaded the (what I think is) necessary files and tried to update and it worked. I put the card into my 3DS and it comes up with the error to turn my power off. If anyone could help it's much appreciated. Thanks. :yaynds:

    EDIT: Nevermind I got it.

    I have a R4i3D (new) flash card http://www.r4i3d.com/index.htm?l=en_US I downloaded the new kernel so when i update my 3DS the flash card still works, but I only get a white screen. Was just wondering if anyone else has this flash card and has got this working. It doesn't seem like many people own this flash card.

    I have R4i-SDHC and I have updated the firmware to 1.51b from their official website.
    The website claim that this firmware support 3DS v3.0.0-5 but everytime I put the R4i inside my 3DS the error message keep come up.
    Can someone help me?

    3.0.0-5 doesnt looks like it is supported on your card

    sounds like you never RAN the update on the card and just copyied the files thinking that was it

    you will need to RUN the update on another console that doesnt have the 3.0.0-5 update

    if you looked on the site you would have seen

    Knokkie: I can confirm that the R4i-Gold 3DS (1.57b) (www.R4i-gold.EU) with the new firmware works wel with 3.0.0.5E..

    So the above works on the r4dsll card for the Super Mario 3d Land upgrade? The r4dsll website has been down.

    I did try the R4i-Gold 3ds firmware but I must have misunderstood the "update" step so it didn't work for me. But if you confirm the above will try to get my hands on a non-upgraded 3ds to run the update. Tnx. Cheers.

    hi

    just had a new update to 3.0.0-6E in the UK

    no idea what it does or what it's for
    but it does not block the R4-3DS from r4i-sdhc.com
