    I grabbed the latest update app from their website here: http://r4ids.cn/r4i-download-e.html
    I used my own 3DS, with the "DSi" version of the update app.

    Hope that helps!

    I think I have found something
    http://www.oz3ds.com/blog/archives/440
    This site says:
    "1. Your R4i gold 3ds must be with the PCB board marked “C”
    2. Your R4i gold 3ds must be with the icon , ” DEEP LABYRINTH ” or ” Kirby ”
    (As there is another icon on PCB “C” named “METRO” which is not available, pls take it easy, the official team will release another patch to support it. )"

    Ugg I seem to be having the same issue as a few of you guys. I have the R4i Gold 3ds (r4ids.cn) it says C on the other side of the card, so i assume its a revision c. =). I tried the update and am still left with the big ole FAIL!!!! is it an issue with certain C versions? Or is it some big :-/

    I think that does not matter.
    The reason why we can't update is cause our card came with the DORASU icon and the one that came with Kirby icon works.
    Dunno about the Metroid icon but one guy said that he can't update and he has the Metroid icon on it.
    Still... it could be pre-installed before shipping so probably he had DORASU icon too.

    Maybe i should rephrase, Im running the update on a 3ds, I dont have a dslite to flash it on. I performed the last update just fine on my 3ds with no issues. I updated the card than updated my 3ds's firmware last time around with no issues. Tried this time i get FAIL!. ill try the other nds file and see if that works. I shall check in shortly.

    Bingo!!! you got it right, none of the updates worked. I believe you are correct sir. My card is indeed a rev c, but like you said when i ordered it, it indeed came with the DORASU icon. So now what? we wait for a new update? or are cards obsolete now?

    Well the Revisions C cards are not different in hardware so i think we just need to wait for an new update.

    Ohh and pong said the one that came with Metroid works.
    It seems just the Dorasu users need to wait.

    its more likely the console your flashing it on
    all flashcards are recommended to be flashed on a DS Phat or Lite
    DSi's and 3DS's cannot have a card ejected and reinserted because they will not load anything once that is triggered until the console returns to the menu

    I got my R4i Gold PRO (r4i-gold.com) working with the patch posted in the first page using a DSLite from Metroid Icon to a Japanese Konami game header without any problems.

    I'm using a Lite. Anyway, I will try a completely different microsd card again when I have access to one. Also, a new patch could come out to address this soon. I never said what was posted on the site I linked was confirmed information but it does seem to fit the experience of those who are posting about it on this forum. I have tried both update files and I get the same behavior. Something isn't working right even though the 4.4.0 update still runs perfectly with my current setup.

    Current Icon: Metroid Prime Hunters *DEMO*
    Selected Upgrade: DSi Version [Latest]

    Results:
    DS Lite/ DSi/ 3DS: Card Check fail

    /edit
    Selected Upgrade: DS Lite version [Latest]

    the hypothesis is that the R4i flashcards and clones who had the Dorasu Icon as their first icon cannot update them with the current patch, even those with Revision C, but those whose first icon was the Kirby icon can. Those who have R4ids cards who came with the Deep Labyrinth icon don't need any patch for 3DS firmwire v4.5.0-10, as it is said on the site. Oh yeah, the update for DSi firmwire 1.4.5 is on the thread's first page, for those who can update.

    I read it here. I know that I can't update the card and which which cards don't need any patch. But I wanted to confirm the information, I wanted to structure it a bit and I wanted to add some information (at least it has a better structure).

    i'm sure glad i ordered a dstwo the nonsense with dealing with r4ids.cn team is redonkulous. I personally think they would be better off not releasing anything rather than releasing something that only a portion of only their revision C Users are able to install. I hope GBATEMP updates the reviews for these cards and reflects that DSTWO Is the only gold card going forward the others especially the r4i gold 3ds is a silver at best because of their Junior Varsity support of their product.

    EXTRAS (for people who think i do not read the forums):
    True & Yes i am aware of that
    ------
    You are a little hateful with that post...... but overall you used a NDS Phat, most ppl do not have them anymore, AND yes both files are on the Root of my Micro-SD Card
    ------
    i have Re-Downloaded All the files, i have cleared all my games and saves just to make sure (and also to back everything up), have not reformated the micro-sd card due to the fact i don't know if i would be able to make it work again
    ------
    True, but i would like to be able to use the E-Shop and extras like that
    ------
    -------------------------------------------------------
    Cards with the Original/PRE-Installed icons of......:
    1- DEEP LABYRINTH [Confirmed = r4ids.cn]

    3- Metroid Prime Hunters *DEMO* [Confirmed???(not sure if true) = Pong20302000 Using NDS Phat]

    UPDATES ONLY WORKS using NDS Phat/NDS Original & a Rev. C Card

    I e-mailed r4ids.cn support and their response was:
    "Is the "Metroid" icon originally came with your card?
    We are trying to reproduce the situation on your case, not sure what happen after several times patch updating done, hopefully get a solution soon..."
    I guess that means they are aware of the problem at least. It's hard to understand if they are optimistic about fixing it from that, though.
