    I just got a standard R4 chip today but I've heard that it could brick the 3DS. How do I unbrick it or use it without bricking? Thanks for your time.:nds:

    it wont brick a 3ds at all, in fact it wont even run on a 3ds. only the phat ds and the ds lite can use a standard r4ds.
    you should get a r4igold 3ds(r4igold.cn version) or a supercard ds2. they will work on a 3ds

    The old R4 will not run on the 3DS nor will the 3DS brick/nor will the card brick.
    You do need a new card though such as the R4i Gold or Supercard DSTwo
    As always I suggest checking out GBAtemp's official sponsor nds-card.com, buying from them helps support the temp

    From Where???
    incorrect recommendation. we call it the r4i gold by the .cn team. but when referring to the website you want to recommend the one that has http://www.r4ids.cn on the label and nothing else.
