    My card finally arrived but I can't seem to find the correct firmware or instructions on how to get the card working.. I installed what I thought was right but when I load the card up I get displayes with an error and to turn the console off and refer to the manuals :(

    The card I have has a silver front with "unlimited upgradable" underneath the R4i writing.

    Any help is more than appreciated, thanks.

    You need to get the software from the site printed on the cart.

    It's a bit late to tell you this now, but R4 clones are generally not recommended, they often have poor support and the updates they receive could stop at any time if the team doesn't feel like it anymore.
    There are 2 sites producing R4 clones that are good and recommended, R4i Gold (r4ids.cn) and R4iDSN (r4idsn.com), as they have official Wood R4 support meaning they will continue to receive fast updates. The rest of them are generally bad. That's why it's a good idea to do some research before you order a flashcart.

    And that's another thing about the R4 clones. Because there are so many of them, finding the firmware/loader for your exact one can be tricky unless you go to the URL printed on the cart/box itself, which is the only thing guaranteed to have the right files.

    The Download link was right at the top...
    It doesn't seem to have been updated for the latest 3DS firmware yet.
