    Hi, i have a 3ds with firmware 2.1.0-4 and this r4I labeled Dual Core. On their official website there is only update which supports ofw 2.1.03, thus making it useless in my console.
    There is also another issue are those products from websites r4i-sdhc.com and r4isdhc.com (my flashcard) related ? I'm asking becouse the other r4i have new kernels updated regulary and seem to work with new 3ds ofw. I have tried using this update on my car and nothing, it stops on the black screen with loading sign.
    Do you guys know if there is a way to get my flashcard running or maybe some news about new update ?
    I wrote them few emails but received no reply, so i would be very gratefull for any help.
    Their website - http://www.r4isdhc.com/

    The whole "dual-core" thing is not actually special to that cart and a bit of twisted wording on their part.

    Is that the site printed on your cart?

    All carts from www.r4isdhc.com are crap and usually abandoned by them after 6 months of being released. Do not get a cart with www.r4isdhc.com on it they are crap (BTW the "Dual Core" is just a marketing gimmick).

    www.r4isdhc.com carts have nothing to do with www.r4i-sdhc.com carts so whilst they both may have issues they are not related.

    Yep, it' s the exact adress printed on the box. I bought my 3ds with this garbage r4 kart from another person,as a used console, and i was wondering if i should wait for new kernel or just throw this out of the window and buy a decent stuff that actually works.

    Throw it out the window. As I said before www.r4isdhc.com are notorious for abandoning their carts after 6 months and it must be about 6 months since this dual core crap was released.

    As I said before it is just a marketing ploy there is no CPU let alone a Dual Core CPU all it means is that for once a www.r4isdhc.com cart can be flashed to work with the latest DSi/3DS firmwares where in the past they couldn't.

    It looks like the guy i bought the 3ds from didn't do much research on the net before grabing this crap. I'm gonna flush it down the toilet, right after i drop a big dump on it. Ok, thanks for your posts, you've been a great help.

    Yeah there is really no need for dual cores inside a DS flash cart. It is marketing. This is just another R4 clone I'm assuming (without looking around to compare). It has one chip for flash memory and one to process the games, as their site claims. But doesn't an R4 dump the sram onto the microsd anyway? I'd guess that both chips are for processing. One to process the game and one to process the saves.

    Anyway if you have a lot of trouble with a card that you got in part of a deal, it would save you time and effort to just buy maybe an Acekard 2i. That's what most people here would do.

    Sometimes I buy carts for novelty but I don't use them too. I just bought the R4 Gold in the gold packaging and don't plan on doing any gaming on it. It was only 5 bucks. Acekard 2i can be found for less than triple that.

    Big surprise - it does work ! They updated their website with new info, and that got me interested. It turns out, that you need to download firmware and update the kart using instructions and TFT reader and clean (formated) sd card. Next step is to download the kernel named r4isdhc-whiteV1.30 and put it on previously used, clean (formated) sd using the TFT and launch it in your 3ds. Tested on Contra, FF, Dragon Quest, everyhings runs with zero problems whatsoever. Just thouht i let you know, maybe it will help someone who also owns this kart.

    apparently, dual-core means "CPU + Flash memory" from what i learned on that website.

    well. that's something new for me .
