    Seruiously, Google gives me either r4i-sdhc/r4isdhc.com both of which are horrifically outdated, or sites that don't have download options even though they SAY they do, and their "download" button is a picture. It's getting really frustrating.

    Have you tried the horrifically outdated firmware(s) from http://r4i-sdhc.com/downloade.asp?

    Edit: I'm assuming here that your flashcart isn't working atm, which is why you want the latest firmware. As far as i'm aware there hasn't been any flashcart breaking updates in the past 4 months.

    With just a quick look around, all i'm seeing for R4s is that they work with the 3ds firmware 10.1 on flashcart firmware 1.82b. :|

    You might have to wait to see if they update the card or someone hex edits out the expiration.

    There's another post here mentioning Kernel 3.6b, though, which was done on September 6th or something, but I can't find it.

    I'm doing that right now, but I don't want to for long. the longer it stays change,d the more I'm fucking up events in ORAS. I already may've bugged the Legendary Beasts and Regigigas by changing the time.

    I don think that's for your card, but it can be found here.

    See, though, I went there. The downloads are all listed as 2014 firmwares.

    You don't need to update the firmware you need to update the Kernel.

    Yep.

    Firmware is how stuff is loaded into the NDS.
    Kernel affected stuff like how the NDS detects the flashcart.

    The firmware is the piece software that is stored on the EEPROM that tells the console what software it's running and loads the kernel on start up. The kernel is the piece of software that you load directly on to the SD card this provides an interface to allow you to load ROMs.

    That's what I need, then, the kernel.
