    As we know that R4ids.cn has released the update news that their R4i gold flashcart is working on the latest 3DS update firmware 2.0.0-2,and today they added another news and the confirmed video,let's take a look!

    Here is the quote from r4ids.cn official site

    "R4i GOLD 3DS can support Nintendo 3DS Ver 2.0.0-2?J,E,U?successfully without any updating,
    anyway please download The Patch V1.4.2c if you don't get a "Spongebob Squarepants" Icon
    after loading your 3DS card... (2011-06-07)"

    and here is the video for you

    [youtube]7TepXVXWJX4[/youtube]


    You may feel confused about what is the meaning , and Let's make it clear and tell you when to use the V1.4.2 patch and when to just use the latest wood firmware

    After you insert your R4i flashcart and power on your 3SD console , if you see the "SpongeBob;s Atlantis Squarepantis THQ" icon, then you dont neeed to use any patch , just use the latest wood firmware V1.30 and run on 3DS v2.0.0-2

    here is the pic of "SpongeBob;s Atlantis Squarepantis THQ" icon

    But if you see the "Miami Nights 3D Ubisoft", then you need download the V1.4.2C patch and then install it,Notice , you need use a DS/DSi console to do the update , after you download the file , you will see a "Read me.txt " file, you will find the step by step instruction there.

    this only works if your cart was a 3d compatible, & you update from Miami Nights to SpongeBob.
    if you got a R4ids gold(non-3DS) that you updated from Alex Rider to SpongeBob icon it wont work on the new update 3DS Ver 2.0.0-2(J,E,U) .
    hopefully the team will bring out a fix, as these carts are very good.



    also if your icon is Meet the Robinsons update to V1.4.2b (Miami Nights) icon, then use V1.4.2c Patch to (SpongeBob) icon.
    i tried updating from Meet the Robinsons icon with The V1.4.2c Patch, now that cart in not working just white screens, mite be a fluke though.

    How to update this card if i dont have DSI/L and no possibility to borrow from? Could be a solution to upgrade firmware directly from N3DS as R4i-sdhc has..

    There's a chance it may brick your card. I wouldn't reccomend it but if you have no other option then try it.

    R4ids.cn mailed me this after asking same question

    Sorry about that you do need another  NDSi or NDSL  to do the Patch V1.4.2c updating for your 3DS card...please follow the instruction in readme.txt...


    Mmmmm...
    Is it posible to update using the first ds (oldest one) ?

    You can complete the updating process with a 3DS whose system is under 2.0.0-2.Just follow the instructions V142C_Patch_R4iGOLD_NDSi.nds and you should boot up V142C_Patch_R4iGOLD_NDSi.nds.

    Hello,

    I have the R4i 3DS from R4i Shopper, red box, non gold version. I updated yesterday without checking the site (I know, foolish) and now the card has the black screen error.

    I have my DS lite, and an old M3 card, but this will not run Woody so therefore I cannot run the Woody patch.

    Does anyone know - What cards will allow me to run the woody patch, then remove it, so I can insert my messed up R4i card?

    Does it have to be another R4i 3DS card, or can it be an old R4 card? tried a mates yesterday and it wouldn't run woody either so looks like I have to buy another cart. Most annoying.

    Thank you!

    So wait, it goes back to spongebob?

    Because they released their first 1.4.2 patch and it was spongebob, but that wasn't done properly and bricked some carts so they released a V2 which used Miami Nights.

    Can someone confirm, if i have an empty micro sd card. what do i put on first, ie.. extract the V1.51B kernel onto the micro SD, then extract the Wood R4 V1.30 ontop of the microSD card, overwriting the files ?

    or do i only need wood, ? why is there 2 files to download ?

    You can just install Wood.

    I have updated to 1.42c and the spongebob pants icon is displayed in the menu but I get a black screen on my 3ds when it is booted and a white screen on my dsl. I have tried 1.42b which displays miami nights and this works on my dsl but not my 3ds. I have been used the .ndsl update and not the .ndsi as this says card check has failed. Anyone else having any issues or know how to fix this??

    i've also had issues updating mine, same process.

    Had a Miami Nights 3D card, updated it to 1.4.2C i got the spongebob icon and get a blackscreen followed by needing to restart my 3ds, and on my dslite i get a white screen. i had the latest wood firmware on it too.

    Contacted the guys at r4ids.cn they're looking into it now. i want to try updating my cards with a DSI maybe that will solve my problem, i'll try it tomorrow with my friends DS.

    Tried everything i can think of to get it working, at the point of the update the card becomes unusable and needs to be reflashed by using another card.

    I'll update you guys on what's going on.
