    Make r4i sdhc 1.4.1 and 1.4.2 (www.r4i-sdhc.com) work on 3ds 2.1.0

    INDEX:
    1. Reqired
    2. First step (only for r4i 1.4.1 Owner!)
    3. Second step

    1. Reqired

    - r4i sdhc 1.4.1 or 1.4.2 card
    - r4i kernel 1.38: http://www.r4i-sdhc.com/R4i%20V1.38b%20English.zip
    - r4i 3ds 1.40 kernel: http://www.r4i-sdhc.com/R4i-3DS%20V1.40b%20English.zip
    - A Micro sd card
    - the First patch to make your r4i 1.4.1 work on dsi 1.4.2 and 3ds 1.1.0 (needed only if you have an r4i 1.4.1 card): http://www.mediafire.com/?gf5dgzx993s4wmf
    - the Second patch to make your r4i (1.4.1 upgraded and 1.4.2) work on 3ds 2.0.0 and 2.1.0: http://www.mediafire.com/?gf5dgzx993s4wmf
    - A n3ds
    - A computer

    2. First step (only r4i 1.4.1 Owner!) if you have an r4i 1.4.2 card or your r4i 1.4.1 is alredy upgraded to 1.4.2 you can get to the second step

    1. make sure nds fully charged, better with external power pluged.
    2. First, reformatting the SD and download kernel 1.38b.
    3. Unzip kernel 1.38 and copy the files(R4iMenu,moonshl2,moonmemo,r4.DAT) to the root of MicroSD card.
    5. Download the First patch, Unzip and copy the file( fwup142c.nds ) to the root of MicroSD card.
    6. Insert MicroSD card into r4i-sdhc 1.4.1 card, insert r4i-sdhc card into your ds lite or dsi/dsi xl
    7. Turn on console and press "A" button to run the upgrade file fwup142c.nds.

    Note: When upgrading the r4i-sdhc card, it is not allowed to turn off power or pull out r4i- sdhc 1.4.1, otherwise it will damage the r4i-sdhc card.
    IT MAY NOT WORK ON SOME OLDER R4i CARDS
    NOW YOUR R4i 1.4.1 WILL WORK ON 3DS 1.1.0 AND DSI 1.4.2

    3. Second step

    1. Download the Second patch, Unzip and copy the file ( UpdateV2.0.0.nds ) to the root of MicroSD card.
    2. Insert MicroSD card into r4i-sdhc 1.4.1 card, insert r4i-sdhc card into your ds lite or dsi/dsi xl
    3. Turn on console and press "A" button to run the upgrade file UpdateV2.0.0.nds.
    4. download the kernel 1.40 for r4i 3ds
    5. Unzip r4i 3ds kernel 1.40 and copy the files(R4iMenu,moonshl2,moonmemo,r4.DAT) to the root of MicroSD card
    6. Enjoy your r4i 1.4.2 on 3ds 2.1.0 [​IMG]

    so the 2nd patch is not official?

    id hope that a future update wont be blocked because it is not the current version
    (e.g. 1.4.3, if it ever happens)

    any chance of a fix for people that get stuck on 11%?

    Edit:

    the second update is not made by anyone outside of the R4i-sdhc

    matches the 2.0.0 update released by the team perfectly a while ago

    Where the hell is the r4i-sdhc team with the 1.4 fix!? If the R4igold team can do it, SO CAN THEY
    On-topic: Well lucky to the users who got the 1.4.1/1.4.2 carts, so is the firmware custom or is it official?

    yes, the second update was only adapted to prevent crashes during the update of the older cards as r4i 1.4.1 and r4i 1.4.2. In fact, the hardware of a r4i 1.4.2 is not different from that of a r4i 3ds.

    I thought it was the other way around, cards that have a chip can be flashable, and card that don't have a chip are not flashable.
    If Im sadly mistaken, isn't the chips in the 1.4.1/1.4.2 carts in the back instead of the front like 1.4? [​IMG]

    stop posting the same info again and again

    i dont see why you dont link the official links from the site


    1.4.1 to 1.4.2 update

    1.4.1-2 updated version or 3DS 1.0 to 3DS 2.0 update

    @Ron457x2
    you messed up your post [​IMG] edit: you fixed it

    i was trying to not be too technical

    but the 1.4 cards do not have a flashable section built in
    so once its out of date it could not be changed
    hence why they released the 1.4.1 cards

    but then about halfway thought the 1.4.1 production they changed it to have a flashable section

    Yeah I messed up on the quoting [​IMG]
    So are the early 1.4.1 still flashable? Im assuming it just takes more of a hassle to uprgrade.

    no flashable section = not upgradable
    just a broken promise to stop people complaining

    [To not make the thread full of quotes]
    @Pong,
    Well that sucks :/
    I don't think that promise is going to be made any time soon.

    I know it is [​IMG]
    But, my hopes got back up when the released the firmware upgrader.
    If they can manage to do the same thing R4igold team did, they will get tremendous support**

    **Make all flashcart revisions work on all firmwares. (Which I doubt they'll do)

    YWG thought this was another R4 clone that won't go far,
    and yet, look how far it made it. [​IMG]

    looks like the card says 1.4.2, very hard to see the number on the vid

    proves it tho that you might be able to update to work on any new updates for 3ds and Dsi

    thanks for video tho
