    Hi guys, sorry I'm new to using flash carts, I've just gotten my 3DS and an R4, but I can't seem to get them working together.
    It's the R4i from r4idsn.com, I ordered it a while ago when I heard it works with the 3DS. (There was a link from the news post, forgot which site.)
    It came in a blue box.

    I just need help with what files to put on the micro sd card.

    I've tried the "4- V1.51 English" kernel just then, used the formatter before I placed all the files in the root of the card.
    I got the black screen error on my 3DS, and I tried the cart with my brother's ds lite and the menu came up (worked), the game still showed up as "storm breaker" rather than "r4" on both DS's system menus.

    I've helped set up the files for an R4 before, but I'd still say I'm pretty new to all this.

    Yo, this is not a chat room. We're not all waiting around twiddling our thumbs, ready to jump on a new thread to help someone. Give a few days before you bump your topic again. [​IMG]

    They don't seem to have the update out. It seems they just want you to buy a new cart with the 3DS update applied.

    Typical R4-clone tactic.

    Between insane and insecure
    I have a solution for your problem.
    Buy a better flashcard, like an Acekard 2i or a Supercard Two

    Don't worry too much. I think ezbuy are a bit faster than that.
    Sorry about your wasted money. Maybe you could give it to your brother?

    I know this is late but if you wnat your r4 to work on your 3ds, you have to get a narmal ds and put the 3ds r4 in it, go to configure and press update then go to your 3ds and it will work


    Or since you ordered the blue box that may mean you ordered the r4 3ds card
    not the r4i 3ds sdhc card that comes in a red box

    if this is right you are using the wrong kernal

    ieatpixels, you should go to www.r4idsn.com and download WOOD R4 V1.48 for r4idsn.Unzip it to the root directory of your tf card. That's all.You need a kernel to make it work.

    There are V1.44 patch for r4idsn 3ds and V1.44 patch for r4idsn non-3ds cards, which can be downloaded from www.r4idsn.com.
    Please have a look.
    Besides, the kernel is WOOD R4, which is updated once a month.

    That post is from over a year ago, when the update didn't exist.

    R4 cards don't work on DSi, DSi XL, or 3DS systems
