    What firmware does it use, and how can I get it working on my 3DS? Thanks in advance.

    Hmm I just tried downloading a patch from the website listed on the card to see if that would work, but their downloads seem to be unavailable? Anyone got another fix or know whats going on?

    I'm clicking on a link stating that it goes to a download.

    I would rather not spend more money and wait for shipping if I have a capable card in my possession.

    it worked for me just know, also it looks like this cart update require you to open the cart and cut a trace on the PC like with the r4ids.cn cards. you also need a way to run the nds update file on the cart, so you need a 3ds on a lower firmware that can boot the card or a dsphat/lite

    That's weird, I'm still getting a server error saying that the file has been moved, renamed or deleted. Can't d/l anything. My 3DS is 4.1.0-8U, is that generally considered low enough to work?

    This is the actual page you want. They, like many other flash cart teams, hide links to the old products so people don't know how often they make users buy new carts to get the latest update.

    Thanks a lot for that. I followed the guides on the website and in the zips and I'm still getting the 'something is wrong, please turn off the 3DS' warning. Ho hum, guys I'll have to shell out for a new card then. What DS card do you recommend for a 3DSXL 4.1.0 fw? Never been online. Something that fixes the awful way the 3DS displays some DS games would be great, but not sure something like that exists. I'll do some research myself too.

    Oh, the error from the 3DS itself is an actual firmware issue, not kernel, and yeah it looks like they stopped updating your model a while ago.

    And no, there's no way to change how the 3DS displays DS games, other than holding Start/Select while starting up the flash cart to display games in their original size/resolution.

    OK many thanks guys! :)

    BTW can you guys recommend a good general videogame forum? I'm basically looking for a forum as good as neogaf without having to buy a website hah.
