    I'm going to appologise right now, as I'm new to the homebrew and flashcart scene etc.

    I currently have a R4i ver2.0 Revolution for DS (www.r4ids.com) which ran Akaio 1.8.6a perfectly. Today I traded my DSiXL and bought a 3DS. My Revolution shows up on my 3DS as a R4DS Ultra which I pretty much suspected after doing some research. My question is, are there any kernels out there that will allow my current card to run on my 3DS so I can carry on with my DS games, or am I going to have to buy a new 3DS compatible card? If so, can anyone recommend any good quality cheap cards?

    Thankyou in advance
    Skoo

    Karnel does not affect 3DS conpatibility
    its purely for loading the games

    Firmware is what you need to update to make it work on newer consoles and if you firmware cannot be updated then your out of luck

    1.8.6a also was most likely the hacked version made to work on all cards not the official one

    is your card also a R4i Gold 2.0 or just R4i 2.0

    I believe it's a R4i Gold 2.0. Thanks for clearing up the firmware/kernel confusion, helps me understand the cards a bit more!

    Thankyou for the list, only I'm none the wiser as I'm currently 'R4i Gold V2.0T AKAIO 1.8.6a (2011-4-10)' and it just shows up with an error. It may also help to know my 3DS has been updated to the latest version.

    it wont work on 3DS latest udpate basically

    the firmware (even the latest update if you has done it stopped having compatibility with 3DS 2.1.0-4)
    the Kernal being redundant as not being able to affect console compatibility

    so all in all buy new card

    supercard DStwo i suggest
