    Hello,

    I've recently acquired a R4i 3DS from www.r4ids.cn. I downloaded the newest WOOD v1.61 kernel and placed it in my SD card. The problem I have is, the 3DS says an error has occured and that I need to reboot.

    Is there a way to fix this issue?

    you need the right FIRMWARE
    wood is just the kernel for the card
    so you need a system that the card works on so you can run the update file


    newers card have
    a FW for card (FLASHED)
    and the
    kernel(files on the sd card)

    make sure you get the right file for your card you you will kill the card

    WOOD is NOT the FLASHED FW, it the kernel (just he files on the SD card)

    you NEED to RUN the FW update for your card


    you need to update the FW(the FLASHED FW of the card) so you can be used on the newest eds FW

    So, I guess I just need to run the 'updater.dat' file then.
