    Hey everyone, i'm new to these forums but almost every google search brought me here.

    I bought an R4 SDHC card, it has a little wifi logo and it says V1.4.1.
    I Have a Nintendo 3DS with firmware 4.1.0-e8

    I've tried installing the latest software on the r4 card via my micro sd card.

    What happens is that it shows a spongebob icon when i insert the card and when i launch it it says "An error has occurred press and hold the power.. etc"

    Is my card even compatible with my 3DS? And does anyone know what i can do next.

    Thanks

    Isn't it the V2.2 that's compatible with 4.1.0.8?

    Preferably get one with 3DS compatibility on this list, as they can be updated.

    My son uses an Ak2i on his 3DS and it works flawlessly. Decent support from the website. Out of all the flashcarts I've used, AK2i is the best in my opinion.

    You guys clearly don't know what you're talking about, the R4i SDHC 3ds is just a renamed R4i SDHC v1.4, you can still update the R4i SDHC as long as its says v1.4 to the latest firmware using this site:

    http://www.r4i-sdhc.com/downloade.asp

    Look at this legend
    Seeing as yours is spongebob, you need to put the 1.51b kernal i believe into the memory stick's root and put the flash cart in a DSi or DS Lite or DS XL, when it boots, update the kernal from the settings and there you go! Next time you turn your DS on it should show Prince Caspian logo which means the kernal has been fully updated and will work on the latest 3DS version.

    Not to sound rude but it's silly how ignorant some people are and mislead you to spend more money when they clearly don't know what they are talking about

    My bad, I was going off of the above post 'cause I didn't feel like sorting through all the info and assumed the previous poster did it already.
