    I ended up getting a PSP and modding it based on a post Rydian made a while back. I feel like it's a better investment than a DSTwo, plus I can play PSP games which is awesome. I have my DS Lite to play DS games so I'm good all around now.

    So has there been any news on how to fix this yet? I'm getting pissed off that r4i.cn hasn't released a fix yet.

    Annoys me more that there hasnt been any official word on the issue or a possible fix, and less that there was an issue to begin with.

    Seems more like they just pulled an "Its an isolated problem" line, when instead its a pretty big chunk of the userbase.

    I emailed support about the R4i Gold with Metroid icon about the newest update and received this response:

    Card with Metroid icon is NOT working on 1.4.5. Do not update your DSi if you have this card with Metroid icon!!
    I'll be waiting for a fix or order a different card soon.

    I just received a r4i Gold with Metroid Demo icon. Nothing would work. Woods would launch, but any games would stop at "Loading". I just kept back revving woods until I found one that worked. I finally had success with Woods 1.48. Using 1.48 I was able to successfully update using R4iGold_3DS45_NDSi145_Patch_NDSi. I still can't use any version of Woods newer that 1.48, though.

    It's probably a problem with your SD card, try reformatting it using the Panasonic SD formatter

    Nope. Tried 6 different cards formatted every way possible on win7, xp, 98. I tried sdformatter, tried native format utility. Nothing works other than going back to 1.48 or earlier. Kernels 1.49+ will themselves run, but I can't run any games from them. They seem like they are going to work, but after clicking a game, it just stays at loading.

    Something with a batch of these Metroid cards is just not right.

    Most probably the "C" cards with metroid icon are no "C" at all! They are re-badged "B" cards.

    Fortunately I bought them from nds-card.com who kindly replaced them for me

    I have a card like you. It's deep labyrinth icon and I update it to Metroid icon. So, they could not load any game with woods newer 1.48. It's stuck when "Loading..." text appear.

    You have made a mistake by updating your r4i gold.
    In fact, there is no need to update the card wit the icon of "deep labyrinth ".
    You should click start on the wood menu and choose help.
    You'll get an information window to show the latest sytem your card can support.


    Old Man In The Moon, maybe the online store you have bought r4i gold from has made a mistake.
    In fact, all r4i gold have been pre-flashed to support the latest system.
    The online store just update the cards by themselves.
    You can contact the online store and request exchanging good ones.

    I just received my card, which I bought from nds-card.com on Nov. 11th. Rev. C, came with Metroid icon. I used an Kingston 16gb Class4 microSD. Wood v1.54. Ran the update on my 3DS XL, v4.2.0-9U. The update ran normally, I actually ran it twice accidentally. After that the icon was of that Japanese game and games ran normally. Updated the 3DS to 4.5.0-10and everything worked normally.

    This is really weird, are you sure your cart isn't a fake?

    I just tried it on mine to check and it loads fine. Still won't run the 4.5.0 update patch, unfortunately.
