    I just bought a 3DS and ordered an R4i Gold 3DS flashcart from r4i-gold.com (this was a mistake - I thought it supported the new 4.20-9 but it didn't). Today the update was released on r4i-gold.com, but when I place the files in the sd card and load it up on a DSlite to update, it tells me this cart is already updated. "no need update. please power off". When I try it in my 3DS I just get an error message. Any clues to what might be going wrong?

    Uh, please post a picture of the version of the r4i-gold.com card you have? They have 3 versions IIRC. Thanks.

    I just solved my problem - it turns out r4i-gold.com does not have the right firmware updater file, which should be up3dsv42.zip. Some google searching led me to find that file on r4i-gold.eu, and I used that to update on a ds lite (keeping the original kernel files from r4i-gold.com). This time I didnt receive a msg telling me it was already updated, and it went on to update successfully and now works in my 3DS :)

    In other words, if you want to update your R4i Gold 3D from r4i-gold.com, you need to use the kernel from http://www.r4i-gold.com/en/download/skin/2012/0115/282.html and the updater from http://r4i-gold.eu/downloade.asp named up3dsv42.nds. Hope this helps anyone with similar problems as me.
