    I had an R4 for my ds lite which just broke so I bought a 3DS August 9th. I then ordered an R4i gold and just got it. I put the microsd card from the old R4 into this new R4i Cart and put it into my 3DS. It showed up on the home screen but when i click it it says error has occurred?

    Do the flashcarts support the latest 3DS update? Is there something I have to do beforehand?

    Could someone please help me? Thank you

    They do support the latest update. Go to the r4ids.cn site and follow the instructions laid out.

    There should be a forum thread on updating the r4i 3DS card somewhere.

    Go on google and post the picture of what card you have. Depending on whether you have the r4i gold or the r4i 3ds gold just means you will need to use a different firmware to update your card.

    When you insert it into the 3ds what does it show up as? Meet the robinsons? Miami Nights? Or Chessmaster I think it is. That is the latest one.

    The website on the sticker of your r4i gold is www.r4ids.cn?
    If it is, this card can support 3DS 2.1.0-4 and NDSi V1.4.3.

    All you should do is to download the latest wood r4 v1.36 from www.r4ids.cn.
