I just want to update this card but it seems like i cant it, it says in the first screen (the screen you see when you boot up my r4) it says its updated to 1.70b but when i go to upgrade its on 1.43 and 3DS 3.0 and not only that but the upgrade button never appears. Is there any way you guys could help me with this? Ive been trying to fix this for three days now -_- i feel like you guys are the only ones that can help. heres pics

Make sure you're getting the latest downloads from the site printed on your cart, and that it's the download for your specific cart model (make sure the sticker matches).

If so ans there's no update option, then you can't update it. Older models of flash carts lose update ability all the time.

I had the same problem. I was able to get it working, but you will need to be able to connect to a wireless network with WEP.

The first thing you should do is make sure your Nintendo DS has the right settings for wireless. I used Mario Kart for this. There is a guide at http://www.r4i-sdhc.com/ConfigureWIFI.pdf

Once all your wireless settings are correct, restart your NDS and boot up your R4. Then click the "Wi-fi" button that moves across the screen. Wait for it to download the latest update then restart the DS when it asks. When your R4 boots up again, go to Configure > Update and the START button should be there. I was able to get my R4 supporting the latest 3DS 6.x this way.

Hope this helps
