    Nope, not normal. It's probably a contact issue or slow msd card interfering with the reading/writing process. I don't think it'll move any further, so it's probably bricked.

    Which flashcart do you have? Can you provide us with the website printed on the cart? Depending on the flashcart, you might be able to recover it (if it bricks, anyways).

    they both work fine on the DSXL and below but no 3ds 3.0 ..



    ..i have 2 cards andI ONLY NEED ONE to work 3ds...can u help with eaither? which ever is easier because im going crazy trying to figure this out

    the first card on the front of the card says r4i *3DS* Revolution for DS ... blue sticker m, super mario box!!

    ALSO i have this card

    http://www.r4sdhc.com/r4tsdhc1.asp


    i got it to work a long time ago for my XL because i updated it... now i want it ot work on 3ds it says it had an update i followed everything correct but it says to update by pressiong the update button and the update button is missing!!! the card says "please restore flash.r4i to enable updating again" so i add the flash.r4i in the folder it needs to be in and when i turn on the ds it says the same thing ...i check the card and the file was deleted ....

    I doubt either of those will work on the latest 3ds version.

    the website says it supports it and even has a update kernal for it , but it just wont let me update it

    it says something about downloading corresponding firmware but it doesnt have any for download only kernals ...so i downlaod the kernal and drag it to my SD card and it says just press update button in config and it should work~ but there is no update button ..ive updated before but now its gone were the button use to be

    it sayd

    "please restore flash.r4i to enable upgrade"

    so i keep adding it over and over to the folder it tells me to and it keeps saying the same thing and the DS keeps deleting the flash.r4i i keep adding in ..i got the file directly from the website...this is so strange i dont no whats going on,...ive even tried 3 different sd cards and formatted them and everything ,,,,,

    the sd or somthing keeps deleting the update file

    when i first got this card i updated it find for my xl because it wasnt working because i updated my DS and it was fine ..now i just want it to work for 3ds 3.0 ...im sorry this is just driving me crazy because the website says it works but i cant do it T+T

    It certainly does... here are the instructions (on the website) for updating:
    I think that bolded portion is what you're missing.​

    Ok I was having trouble updating my R4i SDHC (from www.r4sdhc.com) to make it work on my 3DS (v3.0.06) but finally figured out how to do it.


    1) On the page http://www.r4sdhc.com/r4tsdhc1.asp there are 2 links written in chinese above the "R4i v2.20T/R4 v2.20T Kernel Download". Download the one on the top (filename: down2.40.rar). Also download the latest kernel (filename: English 2.10T15.rar).

    2) Backup your games and format the SD card using panasonic SD formatter (I used the one from here: https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_3/).

    3) Copy the contents of the file down2.40.rar into the SD card.

    4) Put the R4i in your DSi (NOT THE 3DS). It will go to the loading screen and after a while the message "V 3.00 upgrade completed". You can power the DSi off and take the SD card off.

    5) Format the SD card again using the SD formatter. Put the contents from English 2.10T15.rar in the SD card, you can also throw in your games.

    The R4i SDHC (from www.r4sdhc.com) should now be working on your 3DS.

    Though, when I did this the only difference was that I used my DSLite, instead of a DSi, but it should work nevertheless

    @Luigi2011SM64 I think the OP meant that it won't run on their 3DS.

    If you are trying to run a 3DS rom, well... you can't.
