    Gambia, The
    i ve got this new card just bought which didnt need any update (according to the manufacturer) - but the card wont startup with a 32gb toshiba sdhc or any other card. The icon on the nintendo startup is a konami entertainment system which is written in japanlanguage and english (image below). but the videos and the sites ive looked for my problem was showen a spongebob. one video on youtube showed the same konami icon with this Q in the image of the card. now my question: are there many versions out there?

    its the same which is shown on this site: http://www.aliexpress.com/item-img/Dual-Core-SDHC-Chip-2013-Compatible-Wood-Homebrew/819336601.html - the videolink with the konami icon is found here:

    whats wrong with my card? does anyone can help me out with my dilemma?

    i use the 3dsxl with the latest update.

    Hmmm, that's strange. You got exactly same card as mine with 2013 on the sticker. But mine already had spongebob icon when i bought it. Did you try to ask on their forums?

    p.s. Yeah, to update - just download latest kernel and put it on your sd card. Did you do it?

    i only copied the kernel into the card... anyway - problem solved. i just got an answer of the reseller of the card. he has integrated the "new" version into the 2013 labeled chase. WTF?

    thank you for your time.

    im rly pissed

    Have you update the firmware correctly?

    There are 2 distinct versions of this card.

    The "NEW" label and the "2013" label.
    Each one requires it's own own specific kernel/firmware.

    They cannot share each other's kernel/firmware.
    (Trust me, i've tried.)

    Also, the "2013" labeled one is still getting update support, whereas the "NEW" label variation seems to have been abandoned at 1.51 (10-17-2012).
