    I have a 3DS with FW 10.1.0.27U. I have an R4i 3DS flash cart that has the latest kernel (V1.83b), and when I try to boot it up on my 3DS, I get the following error message:

    [​IMG]

    This R4i 3DS card works fine on my DS Lite.

    Any ideas how to fix this error, so I can play DS games on my 3DS?

    Thanks!

    It was probably blocked with an update. You now need cfw to launch it. So downgrade to 9.2 and from there on install a9lh using this guide: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki

    After that you'll be able to play nds roms with your flashcard and play all 3ds games you want as cia files. Also, emulators. And custom themes. And everything you'd need.

    Assuming I can downgrade my 3DS, would I be able to load 3DS games from the SD slot?

    Short answer: Yes.

    Long answer: you know the titles you can download from the Eshop? They're cia files and they install to your home menu. With CFW you can install all the CIA'S you want, so they install to your home menu. The CIA'S are loaded from your sd card.

    Cool thanks! I have the R4i 3DS card, but it doesn't have the RTS mark on it as shown on the website. Does this mean my card doesn't support RTS? I can't find that feature on the card.

    Probably not, but don't quote me on that. I don't know too much about nds flashcards.

    Ok. Btw, the link to the manual is all torrents. I am not a big fan of torrents, so is there a good link on how to downgrade somewhere?

    Also, if I can load 3DS games via SD card, what is the point of a Gateway flash cart?

    There are Mega links. Not sure what you're on about. :unsure:
    And the short answer is there's no reason for a Gateway. Not anymore, at least. [They used to be the only CFW] Long answer: These days the only reason they still exist is because of shameful business practices like claiming other dev's work as their own [A9LH] stealing their code and adding DRM to it. If you own a Gateway, then there is good reason to use it [For the game freaks out there, it's very useful as you have 2 SD cards and can bypass the 300 icon limit, if I'm not mistaken] but there's no reason at all to buy one.
    If you need any help with the Plailect Guide, just ask :)
    Off-Topic: Is that a DSi? :wacko:

    I am trying to visit the Browser Han website, but when I open the 3DS,Web browser, it says I need to perform a system update. If I do this, I am sure it will update to a firmware that would require a hard mod to downgrade.

    Any way around this?

    Set the date to January 1 of year 2000 and the Browser then will work in your version. (Note this workaround was patched in 10.7.0-32)

    Well first you need to "Initialize savedata" of the browser, so first "Initialize savedata" and then enter to the Browser with that date.

    My 3ds is bricked. Tried the recovery mode and no go. No NAND backup.

    Time to throw this thing in the trash

    I was following the guide here:

    http://wololo.net/2016/01/04/3ds-system-software-downgrade-tutorial/

    I got to the step where it says in 10 seconds it will reboot. It hung for quite a while, and I turned off the system. Then.....black screens. I suppose I should have just let it be.

    My next step is just to get another motherboard.

    You used a very old version of sysupdater. You should have use the downgrade tutorial form the guide https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/9.2.0-Downgrade
