    So today, I was doing my thing. Playing with my r4i gold 3ds card. I try to play Kirby: Superstar ultra and a white screen pops up. I waited for around 30 seconds. Nothing happened, so i exited the game. I try to go back in the r4i gold 3ds menu, and i get a message saying "an error has occurred. Press and hold the POWER button to turn the system off." Can anyone help?

    (Everything i have on my 3DS

    Firmware 10.7,
    My r4 card has the latest wood r4 kernel on it
    )

    Are you using CFW? Have you even tried to reboot and try again, to see if it works? Sometimes they just freak out and work fine afterwards.

    Since you noobs have been living under a rock all these years, I'll will give you the bearbones what cfw is.

    CFW stands for custom firmware
    An example of a cfw is reinand, rxtools, and aureinand

    CFW allows installing pirated 3ds games onto the sd card of your 3ds, and also allows everything else to be done on a 3ds (gba emulator, homebrew channel, original r4 flashcards, etc)

    To get cfw working on your 3ds, you will need to downgrade your firmware to 9.2.

    To downgrade your 3ds, go to the tutorial section of gbatemp.net or find a tutorial on youtube of how to downgrade 10.7 firmware.

    I don't think that I'm using a cfw, I'm just on v10.7.0-32U. I also tried rebooting my 3DS, nothing worked...

    Do you have a DS lite to check if the R4 boots in there ?

    - 1) Does the R4 work in a DS lite. If so what is displayed ?
    - 2) Maybe the microSD in it is corrupted or malfunctioning, is it read by the computer?
    -3) maybe the R4 returned to an older unupdated state, no idea how to fix this...

    Op can you use a Ds lite from one of your friends (if you have them and if they have a DS lite) and try using the r4 in there?
    Or ask someone in your vicinity with a CFW 3ds, or a below 6.x firmware 3ds to temporarily use theirs?

    This thread is a trainwreck. Op, try adjusting the micro SD in it or pop the cart in and out a few times (for some reason the flash carts dont like to get in the 3ds), reboot and try again, if it freezes then follow the usual steps: format with the Panasonic SD Formatter (full overwrite), and copy the stuff back on.

    Regarding the R4 problem, it's very probable it's blacklisted by the ds flashcards database.
    You might also need to go to various sources to try to find a different firmware for your card. Try YSMENU from RetroGameFan thread

    Ok...back to the topic ^^ It seems OP's r4 worked normally on his latest firmware 3ds untill it froze in a game and then got blocked...

    The problem is that from what I know latest r4 gold 3ds from R4ids.cn are suppose to be preflashed to work with the latest firmware...if that flashing got erased I suppose the R4 is broken and unusable...since I don't think there's an update for the D model r4 gold...There's one to make the C model compatible with 6.X though...
