    reinstall the latest firmware seems to fix it for most carts (even if it's the same as installed now), sometimes it means the microSD card is damaged (even if it works on a pc it could still be damaged too much for a R4)i. (my brother used to have a gold card)

    yes i mean just that

    gold card checks date of your system comparing this to the modification date of your R4i fw... when this is less then a year old it will not show this message if the SD-card is proper working. be sure to use original fw of this specific card!

    have you tried another sd-card in your R4i-gold, formatted it to fat16/fat32 (fat16 prefered)?

    what website is on the sticker? since there are 3 different R4i gold cards i know of, and the fw is not interchangable

    R4i-gold.com

    When using their new firmware for other cards it works, then crashes.

    Quoting this post because I once had a cart doing the same "expired firmware" thing. Changing the date a few years back fixed it.

    that's the same as my brother has, reformat the microsd-card fat16
    copy the latest fw on it, don't use a too large microsd-card.
    download your fw and kernel at http://www.r4wood.com/pages/r4i%2dgold-firmware.html
    oh and don't forget to backup your games and saves first

    It may be a old method but atleast give it a shot.

    I used to solve this problem downloading the latest update of the card or changing the ds's date.
    I have the r4i-gold.eu though.

    yes

    r4wood.com has a database of compitable fw's (most cards are cloned. then they also got another kernel called wood, this is an update to the compitablility of games!
    fw is the exploit used linking the card to the DS(i) or 3DS wich is strictly linked to the card's id/algorithm/encryption (i don't really know what it is, then there is kernel: the menu linking the card to a game, just it also has counter counter piracy software.

    So that thing they specify under the R4i GOLD should be able to work? About running r4denc and obtaining an R4.dat?

    And what about system time? I can just use latest Wood and do the instructions? Won't the R4i block because of unlegit firmware -> it boots with R4i GOLD 3DS but then crashes.

    try it but didn't help me.
    but there are 2 fw files i see on the wood site, and a kernel.
    it looks like it crashes on fw... are you sure it ends on .com and not on .cn or .me? since that would require different fw.

    R4i-GOLD.com and the card has a v1.4 on it.
