    Hi everyone, I couldn't figure this one out by myself so i thought it'd be a good time to delurk

    my niece gave me this one spare flashcart that she had i can't get to work on my 3ds or on her dsi
    but also i don't know what firmware to download because i don't really know what flashcart this is
    there are so many R4 that I am completely lost
    if it helps, dsi recognized it as a blank cart ( no title no icon ) yesterday when i tried it on my niece's ( maybe because i inserted firmwares from two different r4is in it... )
    also 3ds (4.0.0-7U ) doesn't seem to recgonize it at all

    [​IMG]
    the chip says "R4i 4"

    does anyone know what flashcart is that?
    also does anyone know if it works on a 3ds?



    Thank you very much, people of gbatemp!

    It doesn't matter too much. If it shows a blank icon, it's bricked, and you have no cable to flash it.
    Therefore, it's positively useless no matter what kind it is.

    But, if you still care, I am pretty sure it's an R4i SDHC, an abandoned clone that won't even work on updated DSi's, let alone 3DS'.

    i thought so, but still there are a few r4i golds too it seems

    geez is that so, i was hoping that would be because of the data i inserted in the sd card

    an year ago with the r4i-sdhc, the dsi would reconize this as star wars lethal alliance i think but we weren't able to get it to work
    don't know what happened to it after that
