    Hi, I borrowed a R4 SDHC Dual Core 2014 Card(.hk card) am trying to make it work it with my N3DS 10.4. I downloaded the kernel but it's not working.

    Well, the card you have is a clone card. And the site to download the clone card's kernel (http://www.r4isdhc.com.hk) is down. Unfortunately, the kernel from http://www.r4isdhc.com/ won't work with your card. So, you're screwed unless you can find a mirror of the kernel somewhere. :(

    Also I forgot to ask, are you getting the "An error has occured" black screen? If so, then you'll have to update your card using a regular DS instead.

    Oops, I just updated my message after you sent that. Is it "An error has occured" screen you're getting instead?

    I'm not entirely sure what you mean. If you mean that the R4 card doesn't appear on the 3DS's menu, then there is a connection problem that can be fixed quite easily (I had the same problem shown in the video with my R4i Gold and now my DS Lite reads it most of the time now)

    AM still making it to work... I saw with my eyes that this worked with my friend's 3DS... And my friend asked me to use 2014 Frimware/Kernel. Trying to find that.

    First we have to confirm that our card is working. but when i added a piece of paper when i inserted the card it flickers on card symbol, but it still didn't loading anything. My friend said he will send me a Zipped firmware. Let me see if it works.
