    So...Basically, I bought a R4ISDHC Dual core or whatever, not a great card, but It was cheap and was working fine using YSmenu and such.

    I could use it fine, and my 3DS didn't update...But I tried to run wood R4 on it, even though I knew it wouldn't work, and I think it tried to change my cards firmware, which I didn't know it would do, which obviously bricked the card more or less.

    So now no matter what I do I can't get it to work again, am I just screwed out of the ten dollars I bought it for, or can I fix it? I can't even find a firmware file for the card on the site.

    It's out of luck. Bricked, and won't be fixable.

    I broke mine in a similar manner. I tried to launch YS menu, got stuck to a white screen, and then, couldn't be detected by my dsi at all.

    Dang, that sucks.
    I don't even know why I tried to use wood, ysmenu was working so well...

    Well, anyway, guess it's saving up for a new card, any suggestions for a new one well I've got a thread here?

    SuperCard DSTWO, though it's out of stock everywhere.

    Try R4i Gold 3ds RTS. They're similar to DSTWO (has real time saving) but around 20$ usually :)

    Click english under the kernel download area. Then unpack the archive and place it on your sd card and you should be good to go.

    Kernel didn't work, I can only assume that the firmware got deleted. Which kinda sucks.

    Firmware can never get deleted since it's stored within the flash cart itself. I recommend that you get another one from NDS Card.

    Meant corrupted. But yeah, it's bricked.

    I might get the same card again, but I'm gonna shop around.
