    I purchased about 4-5 months ago a r4ids for my 3ds xl. My wife updated my 3ds which broke the card, however, I was able to update the primary firmware on the card to ndsi 1.45&3DS4.5.0-10 and wood 1.57 with my NDSL. I was unable to get any other update to work other than the ndsi one from ftp://r4idsdown:r4idsdown@soft.r4ids.cn/R4iGold_NDSi145_Patch.rar. I still get the message

    An error has occurred. Press and hold the power button to turn the system off. Please refer to the operations manual for details.

    I've even tried downgrading the secondary firmware to 1.55 to update to a different primary firmware but I still receive the same message. I don't know which revision of the card I have, is there any way to find this out? Any advise on how to resolve this?

    Thanks!
    Vince

    Firmware updates are applied by running the update file, which means you need to do it on a DS/DSi/3DS that currently runs the cart. You can't update it on the 3DS that blocked it, because it won't run.

    I did run the update on my old NDSL. That's what's weird, I was able to run the update @ftp://r4idsdown:r4idsdown@soft.r4ids.cn/R4iGold_NDSi145_Patch.rar but I still get the error message

    It seems your R4i Gold does not support 3DS version 4.5.0-10. The update you used is not for the 3DS, but for the DSi. You should try to use the one with the title below. If it does not work you´ll need a new flash card.
    "The new patch for 3DS V4.5.0-10 & DSi V1.45 is releasing!"

    I actually tried that one first but neither of them worked for me :( , both report fail. I just tried again and received the exact same result. Do I have an old, unsupported revision of the card?

    Sounds like it. Look at the back of it, where the metal pins are, there should be a number or letter near/above the right set of pins.

    It's revision C :wink:. I'm lost now as to why it's not updating.

    Ohh! It seems ur the one of the guys who got scammed.
    They made some kind of old model of cards and named them Rev C.
    Ur not the only one, there are bunch of peps that got scammed like that.
    It seems u need a new card.

    There's more than one model called "C", they got lazy and didn't change the revision number. If yours can't update, it's one of the older, stuck models.

    I wouldn't call it a scam, since it was a mistake on their part.

    That could be possible definitely. The card worked fine before the update. I also ordered it from one of the resellers listed on http://www.r4ids.cn/buy-r4i-e.htm so I would hope they sold me a legit one.

    That is a legit r4ids.cn card but like Rydian said the team got lazy and engraved C on the card just to sell it.
    But the truth is that the card is not Rev C, its one of the older models.

    Drat. That sucks. I guess I'll just wait for a new patch. I'm impressed at how quickly I get responses on this forum :rolleyes:

    No, it is a "C". There's just TWO carts named "C".

    Well i am the one who has got the LT Rev C card (LT=Lazy Team)
    Waiting 5 months for the update and they still haven't made one.
    I think that they won't fix the card.

    I've got an R6, I WOULD say "I've been waiting longer", but I'm on a DSi and I have a DSTwo.

    In the end, the card does not work on the latest firmware and he needs a new one for the 3DS.

    Maybe u can post its photo here?
    There's many card named r4 with many revisions. But a photo can help someone trying to understand your problem.
    In fact i'm using an old r4i-sdhc. So I'll never update my 3ds unless it's hacked, or when i get a 3ds game.

    I'd go with the DSTwo man. Got mine in 8 days with free shipping. Can't wait to play me some TWEWY and 358/2 days :)

    EDIT: Also FF4 and Chrono Trigger.

    Which would look WAY BETTER on ios. too bad I don't have my ipod anymore... (I lost it and some jackass didn't return it to me)

    Rydian, R6 can support NDSi V1.4.5.
    Just goto www.r4ids.cn and download V1.45 patch for it.
