    Hello,

    I'm trying to update my R4i Gold 3DS card with my ds lite so that it work on the 4.4.0-10U 3ds firmware. I put the NDSL.nds update file in the root of the sd card, and when I begin the update, it keeps saying Card Check Fail. I seen videos where the flash cart is removed when the the update file is booted, and then put again, but it keeps saying card check fail. I checked the other update file, NDSi.nds, and it also doesn't work. Does somebody know how a solution to this. My card is working because my brother plays games on his ds lite. I just want to play ds games on my 3ds.

    It seems ur R4iGold 3DS has the revision 8,7 or 6.
    The patch is just for Revisions 9, A, B and C
    Rough luck.
    Btw u can check the number on the card, just check the back of the card and search the lower right corner.

    Sadly no, but they have said that they are gonna try to fix it for those revisions.

    I doubt that they want to fix it
    If they wanted to they could simply use the Metroid Prime Hunters Demo like everone else did (1.5 month ago)
    Will probably be blocked in 4.5 but would give them some time to try to come up with something better

    The lower revisions probably don't have as much bootloader storage space as the higher ones.

    It's a mistake most carts have made in order to make them cheaper.
