    whatup yall. so i had this r4i gold for 3ds from nds-card.com for almost 3 months now. it's been super reliable, and i haven't really taken it out of my 3ds since getting it aside from putting it in my other 3ds. last night for the first time it froze during gameplay (pokemon platinum), and since then it's been doing it more and more frequently, to the point where now when i play i can get maybe 2-3 minutes of gameplay before it freezes. i've taken the r4i and microsd out and blown on the cart, and that helps it to run for upwards of 10 minutes but it will still eventually freeze. has anybody else had this happen, and what can i do to stop it from happening again? thanks.

    check if the pins on the R4 are dirty or something like that, is possible also check if the same thing happens in other consoles, update to latest kernel aswell, otherwise it might be a problem inside the r4 itself :/
