    I have 3ds firmware 4.1.0 and i want to upgrade to 4.1.5 to use estore to dload some demos.

    So, i need to update my r4i gold first before updating the 3ds firmware right?

    http://www.r4ids.cn/r4i-download-e.html#d1

    I have downloaded and extracted WOOD R4 V1.56 Released. (2012-12-25)

    when i run r4i on my 3ds and look at the info, i have these:
    wood akmenu 1.56
    HW:R4i Gold 3DSb
    Sys:NDSi 1.44&3DS4.3.0-10

    I am on latest r4i gold? can i safely upgrade my 3ds firmware? It's confusing(on http://www.r4ids.cn/r4i-download-e.html#d1, i don't know if i need to install the patches??)

    Wood isn't firmware, it's not for DSi/3DS compatibility.

    And this thread talks about updating the firmware of carts.

    Idunno'. It's safer to just stop updating unless you really need to for a game you already bought.
