    First, what's the flashcart's website, and from where did you bought it? I never heard of a 3DS version of this flashcart.

    You probably need to update it so it will work with your 3DS firmware.

    Sorry, can you five me the link from where you purchased it and the flashcart's website (not the website from where you bought it!). Look on the flashcart for the site.

    Also, no double posting please.

    Looks like that card last got an update almost a year ago; there was never a firmware update released.

    The flashcart is just a cheap R4 clone, and it's NOT for the 3DS. Looks like you were scammed.

    I'm sorry.

    It says 3DS on it but it's most likely fake and you can't downgrade the firemware.

    If you're planning to buy another flashcart that works, I suggest you to check our forums.

    The best cart that will give you trouble-free gaming especially if Nintendo puts out another update would be the DSTWO.
