    Hello all, I'm having some trouble with my flashcart. It is an R4i Gold 3DS Revolution, the site on the front of the card is www.r4ids.cn and I'm currently using the R4 Wood 1.64 firmware. The problem I'm having is that i cannot get this card to work with my girlfriends 3DS even though the card clearly says its for 3DS. The card works perfectly for my DSL and it shows up as the Metroid Prime Hunters game icon on the 3DS but i get an error when i try to launch it. I've been all over the site and cannot seem to find a newer firmware than the one i have. I also tried the update for the card using the DSL and it just says Fail. I was hoping that someone could assist me in getting this card to work in the 3DS, thank you all. I have attached pictures for helpfulness, well hopefully atleast lol.

    The question is what firmware is your 3ds on? And what firmwares does the card support? I don't know cuz I'm not really interested in R4

    what number/letter is on the back of the card by where the contacts are......that card looks like a old revision....probably blocked and unsupported by the R4ids.cin team any more

    The latest firmware on the 3DS (8.1.0-19) as far as what the flashcart supports is unclear, the website isnt very descriptive.

    Just because it says 3DS on the sticker does not mean that it works on all firmware 3DSs.

    Yes I am aware of that, I bought this card from a friend for a few dollars quiet some time ago, as I recall it did work on his 3DS when he sold it to me.

    hmmm im pretty sure the rev c is supposed to still work....if its failing the card check i suppose it could possibly be a clone.....but idk tbh

    also after 6.x the card required you to cut a trace on the pcb.....but not sure if its genuine or not as the update should run on it

    Best thing to do would be to test it on another 3ds.

    ok had another read and it seems the metroid icon cards where not updatable, so i think that will only work on 5.x

    Okay my girlfriend mentioned that she was trying to make this card work once for her 3DS and somehow managed to change the icon from metroid to a mario one. She said it still wouldnt work but the icon was changed. Anyone familiar with this?
