    i already did read that thread. but, i still dont know why there isn´t a patch. is the r4 blocked from getting (that kind of) patches? or is it cause it boots up after the warning screen on the dsl? please gimme some more useful info, not just "nope"

    The answer is no. There are reasons we have DSi and 3Ds specific carts. Nintendo blocked pretty much all the old DSL ones because they'd been arond for ages.
    Answer is No.

    Your question was answered, you did not request additional information in your OP.

    There are not patches because the R4 was never made to do that because at the time it wasn't needed. Time travels one way, and at the time a bootloader update feature was useless, so they didn't bother putting it in.

    So the answer is still "there is none because it does not exist".

    The bootloader isn't reflashable so no.

    I want to bump this. Since there has been improvements on new hacks, emunand, and cfw, is it possible to get the original r4 for ndsl/nds running again on the 3ds system?

    I'm pretty sure it is. I think there's like an r4 launcher by Apache Thunder.

    Of course you can, but you need the lastest TWL patches and the Wood Launcher by @Apache Thunder
