    Gaming Firmware Update Compilation thread / List of Flashcards working on 3DS

    This is my final post on this (sorry about double/triple posting earlier). As i said previously, the card was being detected erratically - or what I believed was erratically ....... but I left it overnight and tried running the update (back to metroid prime demo) off an R4. R4 in, load...

    Gaming Firmware Update Compilation thread / List of Flashcards working on 3DS

    Didn't show up in slot. New quirk - I just got a DSi to sort out and tried it in there - the DSi is on 1.41 - the cart shows up as "Metroid Prime Demo"........... This is without a memory card in it. Just formatting one as I write this. Thing is - I tried the card/paper trick to the point...

    Gaming Firmware Update Compilation thread / List of Flashcards working on 3DS

    HI, the card was flashed using a DSlite with an R4 original (wood 1.54 s/w). It was a brand new R4i3DS that I put in the 3ds (on 4.5.0-10) and it was recognised but gave the "error, hold power to reboot" msg. From then it wasn't detected on the 3ds or Dsl. So I flashed it on the DSlite -it...

    Gaming Firmware Update Compilation thread / List of Flashcards working on 3DS

    Pong, "a solution possible" ? Mine flashed "success" on a Lite, but hasn't worked since. I can't get it to flash to anything now (as in previous firmwares) using any software pack as a loader. Is this fixable? I contacted the shop and asked for an RMA - should I hold off or return it? I managed...

    Hacking R4i Gold V1.4 "An error has occurred" on DSi

    I've been using Sandisk 2gb microSD's formatted with Panasonics sd formatter in the original R4 cards (as source) and I tried a TDK in the CycloDS. In the R4i 3DS I've been using Sandisks and a 4gb TDK. All with the same result. It's a repeating result now - no matter what DS lite (have 2) , R4...

    Hacking R4i Gold V1.4 "An error has occurred" on DSi

    just a thought.... the 3ds update was Dec 4th and the dsi update later - any chance Nintendo updated the 3ds firmware without revising the build code (4.5.1-10) ????

    Hacking R4i Gold V1.4 "An error has occurred" on DSi

    I don't have a DSi - I have 2 DS lites and a 3ds XL. I updated the brand new card on the DS lite , put it into the 3ds XL (on 4.5.0.10) and it was "detected" - tried to load a rom and it gave the error message. I rebooted and it wasn't detected at all - in the 3ds OR DS lite. I did manage to...

    Hacking R4i Gold V1.4 "An error has occurred" on DSi

    Mine did that AFTER i flashed with the new 4.5.0.10 and hasn't worked since. All I got on reboot was "no card in slot". That was on the 3ds and DSlite. Subsequent reflashing attempts "fail" at about the 80% mark. Tried all available firmwares on 2 DS lites, 2 different R4 original carts and last...

    Hacking NEED HELP WITH MY R4i!!! DESPERATE!

    I flashed with the new firmware (not long after release) on a DS Lite and even though it said "success" - it didn't work. Now it won't flash with ANY firmware pack :-( Some said to download again as they changed something - not sure if they did - but my R4i 3DS is , for want of a better word...

    Is anyone else being left with a card that can't be flashed back to a previous firmware pack?

    Gaming Firmware Update Compilation thread / List of Flashcards working on 3DS

    Final update from me..... I've tried 2 R4 originals with 4 different micro SD's in 2 different NDSlites as update sources - tried all the R4i3DS firmwares from the site, "cleaned" the R4i 3DS with cotton buds and denatured alcohol. I now have a repeating result. The update starts and gets to...

    Hacking R4i question

    Hi, Chipspain got an R4i3DS Gold to me in 24 hrs (for 8euros post). But - I'm having a hell of a time getting it to flash and work :-( Might be worth it going for a SupercardTWO......

    Gaming Firmware Update Compilation thread / List of Flashcards working on 3DS

    The update process stated "success" but the card was then undetected on both systems. I've subsequently been able to flash an older firmware that booted on the DSLite but then locked at "loading" - then it was back to not being detected. Actually flashing is very hit or miss. If I reformat...

    Hacking What just happened to my card?

    Development - I got it working ONCE on my DSL by reflashing with 30841-R4iGold3DS_44Patch (its a beta version someone mentioned elsewhere). It was recognised (Metroid Prime Demo) but when I tried to run a game it stuck at "loading" (white letters black screen) and once turned off it is back to...

    Hacking What just happened to my card?

    I have almost the exact same issue. Patched according to instructions and it said success. It wouldn't work in either a 3DSXL or DSL (that I patched it with using an R4). I've managed to reflash it to other R4i3DS firmwares but all to no avail - it just doesn't appear in the DSL .. I think its...
