    Can I use my R4igold (http://www.r4ids.cn/) ON a 3ds xl ver 6.0 to update at all, or am I forced to use an older console/ correct firmware?

    I know some carts can update if leaving on for 3 minutes with proper files at the "error power off" screen

    Yeah, that option is possible, but I know I could find a local DS somewhere to do this.

    Im just hoping horribly that the update comes soon. I literally got my 3DS Xl yesterday, and thought to myself, this update cant be above 5.0.1, I had JUST used my friends the day prior! DOH

    Yikes, I can see how someone could make that mistake. Hopefully the r4ids.cn team will have an update. They have been a letdown in the past for people, like myself, because they may put out a new revision and stop support for older revisions.

    I think this time at least an update will be out soon.
    Yeah you can just borrow someone's system that is running an old version or get the 3ds update they sell :)
