    I got an R4i Gold 3DS (r4ids.cn) from ZhuZhuChina about a month ago. Everything was working fine, until last night, when I wanted to play pokemon, it kept getting stuck at "R4i Gold 3DS Starting"
    I know it's not a problem with the contacts, or the MicroSD, as I have 2 different ones, both formatted with the firmware/kernel loaded
    I'm thinking maybe I should run an update/"downgrade it" as it maybe has been bricked?
    thanks,
    Isaac

    Nevermind, I had previously put the firmware for the R4i-3DS for a speed test to see if my Sandisk UHS-1 Ultra was faster, and put the R4i Gold FW in a folder on the root... lol
