    Hello.
    Ive fallen behind on updates and I havent used my R4 in a while.
    I just updated today and i can't get it to work on my 3DS. It IS working properly with my DSLite, so ive confirmed that the R4 itself isnt damaged.

    What im working with:
    R4i Gold 3DS
    Wood R4iGold Firmware 1.47 (http://www.r4ids.cn/...download-e.html)[the most recent at the top of the list]

    Ive tried running an NDS version of the kernal from my DSLite (http://filetrip.net/...147-f28238.html) which didn't do much.
    Does anybody know what the issue is?
    Thanks

    You're doing it wrong.

    And you'll obviously have to apply that on a DS Lite or older before you can use it in your 3DS.

    Took a shot at patching the R4.
    The patching process won't go through.

    At the menu where it asks you to hit B for "card check" I get a "Fail" message.
    Same issue when I hit A to "Update".

    then I guess you have a different cart
    find out what you really have and try again with the correct update

    you did also try both the files that came with it?

    as the DS-DSlite file is for Dead cards
    and the DSi-3DS update is for ones currently working

    i updated mine on a DS-Phat using the DSi-3DS file

    Yup. You were right. the NDSL patch didn't work, but the NDSi did!
    Thanks, everyone. :D

    It seems that you have used the wrong patch.You have used V1.44 patch for r4i gold 3ds or V1.44 patch for r4i gold non-3DS?
