    So recently my brother updated his 3DS to it's latest version, version 5.1.0-11E, and now his flashcart won't run properly. His flashcart is the R43DS, I realise there is a metric shit-tonne of these on the market, and I need some insight on whether or not he'll be able to continue pirating his games. I can upload pictures of the flashcart if necessary. So is there some sort of R4 Firmware that will allow him to play his R4 on this version of the 3DS or is he doomed to retail purchases forever?

    Thanks for anyone who replies :yaynds:

    Depends on what it looks like and the site printed on it. Also you'll need another DS that still runs it in order to update the firmware.

    Will a normal NDS do?

    Here's a picture of the R4, front and back.

    The website is r4ids.cn.


    EDIT: I apologise for picture quality but my phone is the only way of taking a picture quickly and easily.

    Oh yeah my bad it's definitely R4ids.cn, I only have the picture to get the link from right now and as you can see it's a bit blurry xD

    I'll edit that in now.

    heres the update files you need

    ftp://r4idsdown:r4idsdown@soft.r4ids.cn/r4igold_3DS62_Patch.rar

    extract the "R4iGold_3DS62_Patch_NDSi_3DS.nds" and copy to the MicroSD
    place the cart with the MicroSD inside into a DS Phat or DS Lite
    boot the cart
    load up the file you just copied
    follow the instructions carefully, wait until it says finished
    once it "tells you" it has finished (the progress bar will fill up multiple times before saying "done")
    then you can turn off the console
    then take the update file off the microSD
    then the card should be able to boot in the 3DS
