    Hi,
    i bought a 3ds and a M3i zero card for my son.
    This card works till firmware 4.5.0. Now he made a firmware upgrade up to 5.1 (altough i said he should not make any upgrades).
    A downgrade of the 3ds-firmware ist not possible, mybe the card will be able to work in the future.
    Is there any other card which works with this firmware version??
    Thanks a lot!

    The R4i gold and the DStwo. Whats up with people not being able to read stickies?

    Also why the heck can't your son follow directions? I would put a password on being able to update the firmware.

    this was already known

    it only made it up to 4.5.0-10 due to a rom image found allowed for it to work without a save IC (which is what the 3DS checks for in newer versions (since 4.4.0) since there is no more games like that exist all new flashcards must have a Save IC, the M3i Zero was a old card that got very lucky with an update

    if you want a card to work on 5.1.0-11 you will need to purchase a new one as an update is not possible

    Thank you for your help!
    Sorry, I didn't found the information, that another card ist able to work with firmware 5.1.
    I thought, no card can do this.

    Just because a cart might stop working when a firmware update comes out... that doesn't mean it'll never update. Flash cart teams put out their own updates to counter these.

    That explains the general process.
