    I just bought a 3DS and a R4i 3DS Gold card (r4ids.cn) FC.

    My 3ds is on 2.2.0-0U (From the Super Mario World 3D Game)

    I currently have Wood 1.42 on the R4i to play NDS games. (It shows the Spongebob icon with three lines of chinese/japanese writing.)

    I want to update my 3DS to the latest version 3.0.0-6 but want to keep the ability to use the R4i Gold card.

    How do I do this? I have been reading this forum for a few hours now, and I can't seem to find anything about updating. I there an update .nds file to use? do I just update normally from Nintendo's servers?

    Also, I don't have eshop on the 3DS screen at all. I've read that having 2.0 should have installed eshop? Is there another way to get eshop on the 3DS?

    If it supports 3ds firmware 2.2.0-4, it should already support every 3ds firmware up to the latest one. (you can read about it on their official website). You can also get updates for the bootloader on their official website, so whenever a 3ds update is released, check there.

    An easy way to tell if your cart is compatible with the firmware is by the game icon, so it'd help if you can provide what the game icon is. I don't know what the icon is supposed to be for the 2.2.0-4 update, so maybe somebody else can help you on that, though.

    ok, thanks s4mid4re, I have the spongebob bootloader.

    I did find these posts by Buleste that I think has answered my question:

    Just an update to help other n00bs and the community, I bit the bullet and updated from Nintendo's servers, updated to 3.0.0-6U just fine. (Still with the Spongebob Game Icon)

    DS Games work just fine on 3.0.0-6U.

    Also there is a free Zelda game in the eshop (4 swords) until Feb 20th. just an FYI
