    Hi all,

    i just update my nintendo firmware to 1.4.5E now my R4 card won't work.
    is there any solution without downgrading i can do?

    Flashcard has the following information on it:

    R4i
    3DS
    (N3DS/NDSi XL/NDSi/NDSL/NDS)
    r4i-gold

    Hope someone can help me cause right now i get the message: "an error has occurred.press and hold the power button to turn the system off.please see the nintendo dsi manual for help troubleshooting."

    Btw i'm new in this >.<.

    Try downloading the latest firmware from your flashcard's website and putting it on the microsd card

    It's too late now, but for the future: There is almost no reason to update a DSi. The purpose of the updates was more or less blocking flashcarts
    https://dsibrew.org/wiki/System_Menu

    Instead of going through the downgrading process (which is a horrible idea in my opinion) I suggest one (or both) of these two options:

    1. Install unlaunch: https://dsi.cfw.guide/
    This disables the whitelist and signature checks and could possibly get your R4 usable (at least it worked with an Acekard 2i for me – which is blocked by 1.4.5). If you only want to get the flashcart working you can stop following the guide after installing unlaunch. But installing HiyaCFW and TWiLight Menu++ is a good alternative to a flashcart.

    ==========
    Edit: Even if you do not want to use Hiya/TWilight please do not skip the NAND-backup step before installing unlaunch.
    ==========

    One warning: unlaunch does some non-optional(!) patches to the System Menu not everybody likes:
    • No "Health and Safety Warning" screen
    • No music and no sound in System Menu
    2. Replace your R4 with a newer one: [nds-card.com] R4i Gold 3DS Plus.
