    Just bought a new R4i Gold 3DS since I gave me other one to a friend.
    So I set it up properly, works fine on my New 3DS XL, shows up as that Japanese game, but when I updated it to 6.2, the thing crashed.
    Now whenever the cartridge is in the console, it freezes it, whether it starts with it in or if I put it in when it's already on.
    I tried putting it in my regular 3DS and 2DS, same problem.
    I tried putting it into my DS Lite to fix it, but not even my DS Lite reads it.
    Any help you could give me? The 3DS and 2DS are 9.5.0-22U and the New 3DS is 9.5.0-23U.

    Updated using what? You shouldn't have to update R4i Gold 3DS, all current versions work just fine out of the box.
    There are also several revisions of this card, if you did install update from previous revision you could've bricked your card and you won't be able to fix it.

    Well yeah, everything worked fine. But unless I misunderstood, r4ids.cn said to run R4iGold_3DS62_Patch_NDSi_3DS.nds to update the firmware, so I did that. Everything seemed to work fine, but I accidentally hit A again and it seemed to maybe work again? The problem is after that, whenever I put it in, the screen freezes, but the music still plays.
    In the past few days I've tried using an acekard2i to run R4iGold_3DS62_Patch_NDSL_3DS.nds and the swap the carts, but it says card check FAIL no matter what I do.

    You have insufficient posts to view location.
    If you bought it recently, it was already updated for you to run on 9.5 already. Basically you downgraded and screwed yourself.

    So is it just forever wrecked? No way to fix it?
