Hi there. I just purchased a week or two ago an R4i Gold RST Revolution card type for my 3DS from www.r4ids.cn The actual site I bought from was the recommended GBAtemp place: http://nds-card.com/ I went to the r4ids.cn site to download the latest Wood v157 firmware for the card, but the links on that site for me are all not working so I cannot download anything. Does this appear to be the same for everyone else? i.e. This download link does not work for me: ftp://r4idsdown:firstname.lastname@example.org/Wood_R4iGold_V1.57.rar I then found a site linked to on these forums: http://filetrip.net/nds-downloads/flashcart-files/r4-series/ And I downloaded the official wood v157 from there. Or at least I thought I did. I downloaded it on the THIS LINK. Can someone confirm this is correct? (you click download on the right hand side of page). When I put the above firmware on the flash card and tried to boot up, I just got a "www.r4ids.cn STARTING" message in white writing on black background. It stays there indefinitely. I tried reflashing and the usual tricks. No joy. I then noticed firmware on THIS LINK which is labelled as "Wood R4 for R4i Gold (R4iDS) 1.56 Download". I find this all confusing despite that the guy on that site has tried to explain which is which. Anyway, this firmware when I put it on my card and booted my 3DS it worked. So what's going on? Have I loaded the right firmware? How can I get onto wood V157 the latest? Also I do not understand what all these "patches" are listed on the r4ids.cn site either. I checked my 3DS by the way and the firmware veresion it shipped with is 3.0.0-E or something like that. Help much appreciated. Thanks.
