    Hi!

    As you might recognize im a bit new with the whole "flash 3ds" thing.
    I sat and wondered a long time what flashcard i was going to buy. I was thinking r4i gold deluxe or 3dslink card. In the end it turned out to be the 3dslink anyway.
    I read a lot where they said "multirom, online play" and so on.
    I just recently installed the basic "flashdrive" to my 3ds.
    I can play nds games on the blue card. But not online bcuz of the nintendo internet shutdown to the older nintendo drives something like that.
    And the problem!
    I can only put 1 game at the time on the 3ds. althou they say "Multirom. pull and drag into micro sd and start 3ds then push select".

    I later on found a "patch" on 3dslink website and something about "version 4.0b bootcard".
    Anyone who could explain how i patch and so on? I would like to have multiple 3ds games and not many micro sdcard.

    Please help!

    nintendo 3ds black
    Version 4.0.5 - 10 EU
    3DSlink flashcard

    just like it says on the site, in general the same as before, just format your micro sd card for 3ds roms in exfat, and put your roms as just files on it
    the last step is a little changed, press select on the location saying no card injected/found (i've got a dutch 3ds and 3dslink) you'll see all your roms in the upper screen
    press a when selected the right rom (use the buttons to scroll) press a again to start the rom. works for most roms

    Hey jaap!
    thnks for the quick reply!

    I've done that and it doesnt work. Feels like im missing something :/

    What i've done

    *installed 3ds as the guide said. Skipped the win32 disk part.
    *put in another sd card and drag and drop the games to that card
    *put micro sd into the red 3dslink card
    *went to settings -> Other settings -> Profile -> Nds profile. w8 for the startup
    *went to the empty icon pressed select. Nothing happens

    Do i have to have the booty thing in the red aswell?

    Does 1 orom per mSD works for you?

    - Check another rom. Something small only for testing purpose.
    - Try ExFat and copy *.3DS file to microSD. Test it.
    - Burn 3DS file image to mSD using WinDiskImager.
    - Format 3DS system to factory settings and install exploit again.
    - Check if SELECT button is workink properly. Try DS mode homebrew called DiagnoSe.

    !!! remember that if you go to DS mode using game or DS flashcard, the exploit is gone and is needed to install it again.
    !!! Every time console restarts your console exits 3DSLink mode and you need to go Settings>Other> Nin DS profile.

    make sure you copy the new "launcher.dat" onto the Big SD card in the side of the 3DS

    yes, surely you know the bleu card needs update, and the sd-card need an update aswell, and don't listen to eggsample cause he's wrong about his solution.

    the bleu-card for the start of the chain differs so it can read exfat and fat, launcher.dat to actually read the rom files... go to where your game card should have his icon and press select

    The exploit is always the same..... don't know what they put an update on the blue card for. but if you have seen , r4 hasn't put the same file and they are the same team..

    there were one update , dont know if it's in 3 or in 4, and there is a launcher update...
    the blue card and normal sd needs to be fat32, and the red card better is exfat...

    So when you looked for a 3DS flash card, the Gateway never presented itself? You went with the cheap not-as-feature-rich knock-off? Good luck...

    They have always changed the number on the blue card software when in fact it never changed. Trust me. The exploit is always the same and as long as you can enter exploit mode you don't need to update anything

    Sorry for asking an obvious question, but you are putting the ROMs onto your microSD and not your SD card right?

    It goes like this:

    launcher.dat -> SD card -> 3DS
    ROMs -> microSD -> 3DSLink red cart -> 3DS

    Also as others have said, you need to use the 4.0b2 launcher.dat from the 3DSLink homepage, as it is the only version that supports multi-ROM.

    your 3ds micro sd-card, is it ex-fat or fat32 (not ntfs, or anything else formatted), and did you check the upper screen cause it's supposed to show in the upper screen. forgot to mention the 3ds roms need to have .3ds extension

    You're right. Both links for their 4.0b2 firmware appear to be down. Maybe you can find it on a different site or try to contact them for a copy of the file.

    R4, 3ds link and orange 3ds all use the same FW, so you could just get the R4 deluxe FW off their site

    Another obvious question, but you are aware that your firmware is not a high enough version right? You need at least 4.1.0 and at most 4.5.10.
