    Hi,

    I am currently the owner of a rather old R4 gold card. It is the version without the RTS logo on the cart.

    Recently, I update my 3ds to V7.0 without realising that it would block my R4 card. I tried to patch my card using the R4 card through my girlfriend's old DS lite. I was not able to do it as the i always fail the card check stage.

    Then I found out that I could update the card via wifi and I managed to do so. Afterwhich, it still didn't work and I found out that I might need to cut the signal line. I did it but I still did not manage to get it to work. Can anyone help me out? Thanks!

    Hate to say it, but you're SOL. Unless you had a backup of your NAND and you know how to solder. Both of which I doubt in this case.

    Xzi- I am pretty sure he is referring to his r4i gold ds flashcart NOT a 3ds one considering he mentioned cutting the signal line.

    pikmin23- if you already cut the signal line, make sure you reformat your sd card and download the NEWEST wood kernel which is 1.64.

    backup your data from the sd card BEFORE you reformat

    After you try that it should work provided you correctly cut the signal line

    You should read into threads a little more before immediately assuming it has to do with a bricked 3DS. He has an older R4i Gold (DS Flashcard), and he accidentally updated to 7.0 without updating the card first. He wants to know what the best method of updating his card is, in order to get it working again. I can't answer this, since I don't own this specific cartridge.

    Don't take this as an offensive remark, it's not meant that way. ;)

    And of course back up your data from your sd card BEFORE you reformat

    Oh, I thought he was talking about using a 3DS flash cart on official 7.1 firmware, not that he was bricked.

    thanks guys! but sadly it still didn;t work after i format it and put in the new kernel. I think signal should have been properly cut. In fact i made quite a deep cut in the middle. Any thought? :)
