    Help! My R4 Dual Core 2013 was bricked because I turned off during the firmware flashing. How can I reflash/unbrick my card? I tried the card-swapping method, I put an Acekard with the firmware upgrade in a DS Lite and ran it. When the .nds file was loaded, I put my Acekard out and the R4 Dual Core 2013 in. It gets stuck on 'Erasing device...' everytime and just won't reflash! What can I do!

    The firmware upgrade I use is this one (the Chinese upgrade for 3DS 6.0.0): http://pan.baidu.com/share/link?shareid=967244462&uk=1795683192. It is from the Chinese forum of r4isdhc.com: http://www.r4isdhcbbc.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=18479&extra=page=1&page=1. This firmware update was mentioned in this thread: http://gbatemp.net/threads/r4i-sdhc-dual-core-update.350036/.

    Please answer!

    I guess the firmware update program is not reinitializing the card slot when you tell it to start and only when it is booted.

    And can I fix this? Can I put the card in at the moment it is initializing?

    I do not think so. A possible solution might be to load he ROM into memory, then swap the card and launch it, but i don't know if there is any way to do that without someone making a new program.

    The program I use isn't able to do the card-swap, so I think I can't unbrick it... Any ideas left?

    Are you swapping the MicroSD when you do the cart swap too?

    Yes, I am also swapping the microSD. In video tutorials they also did this.

    problem is you used the Non Official Firmware update
    so there wont be an official fix for it

    Depending on the cart sometimes you need to and sometimes you don't.
