Got a R4 last week and, well, pretty straightforward on my 3ds xl. Yesterday i managed to find my old 3ds, updated firmware to latest version and when i try to boot my r4 on the old 3ds it shows:

"An error has ocurred. Press and hold the Power Button to turn the system off."

Anyone knows something about this? Didn't manage to find anything by googling it around


Edit - Stupid fix, I just blew in the cartridge reader a few times and it worked, guess it makes sense after it was kept in a drawer for 6 years

Sounds like the whitelist check on the O3DS is blocking the R4.

Do you have custom firmware on the console that throws the error? Luma3DS should get rid of the whitelist check. Also: Does other DS(i) software work?

Turns out my dumb thick head forgot that i changed sd cards and forgot to install luma on it. Got luma on it, it did manage to boot but only boots to a black screen.

And about other DS software, they do work properly.
