    Hey guys

    A word before, I have a r4i gold but it just gives me so many problems with Bowser's inside story, can't get it to run properly even if it should.

    Found an old ak2i flying around and thought maybe play the game there, but I can't get it to work. It's recognized as Narnia cart (which it also was before it was blocked) but gives an error has occurred screen. I already have v0 Whitelist in my nand but still no success.

    Does it generally not work on n3ds? Or can I try something else? Any ideas? Thanks!

    AK2i won't work (I have it).
    R4i Gold 3DS works (I have it)
    Blue Card also works (you need to apply the bluecardfix though)

    Edit: BTW, I applied the 4.x MSET cia to use with ReiNand 3.0 on my N3DS and ran the rnInstaller.nds
    on R4i Gold 3DS and it "STUCK". I ran other DS games from the R4, and the mset is still active...

    Ok sad. I have to dig further to get that damn Bowser inside story to work. Just can't figure out for the love of God why it keeps freezing.

    Unless someone figures out where the EEPROM checking stuff in TWL_FIRM is, AK2i will not work on N3DS. Only O3DS can use it right now (don't think 2DS can either), with a TWL_FIRM downgrade to one from around 4.1 or so.

    I guess you're using the EUR version?

    04175: 4171 - Mario & Luigi - Bowser's Inside Story (US)(M3) (Hypocrite)
    04272: 4268 - Mario & Luigi - Bowser's Inside Story (EU)(M5) (WetNWild)

    Have you tried these?

    I read one should not use patched versions as the kernel patches itself, thus provoking freezes
