    Hello everyone, i have a small problem, i want a pay a 3DS(a used one) this month and i want to use my R4 SDHC Dual-core 2013 to play 3DS game but someone says this card can't play 3DS game and only DS game. So i want to know if i can use my R4 or if i need to pay a new one because the last one is quite pricy.
    Thanks for the advice
    PS: Is the 3DS region lock been solved because i'll be buying a french one and i want to be able to play japanese game

    Hi. sorry but you can't play 3ds games with these flashcard. But you can install a CFW for play 3ds games. But what is your Firmware? (You can get it on ystem setting)

    What do you mean linker?
    The exploit to access the CFW with Profile Nintendo DS?

    CFW are entirely free and atm you can install a CFW until 9.2 firmware but even with a higher firm, you can downgrade to 9.2.
    Send me a PM if you want need some information in French or if you didn't understand something. ;)

    You didn't understand me, i was asking if i can use my R4 dual core 2013 to replace the R4 gold if my 3DS FW is 10.3 or 9?

    If your firmware is 4.x you need a linker, you can use the R4 to install it, it doesn't have to be a R4i Gold

    If your firmware is above that you won't need a linker to install a CFW and play 3DS games.

    I got my 3DS and it is a french one and the FW is 7.2.0-06E so what do i need to hack this one and play 3DS game?
    (because now i know that my R4 dual core is useless)

    No answer... so i'll go for a 7.0.0-13E since my R4 dual core will work fine on it
