So due to a lapse in judgement on my part, I ended up updating my 3ds to the newest available firmware (5.1.0-11U at the time), and my R4i 3ds Gold (rev C) isn't booting. I've been reading that I should be able to patch my card to work with the newest firmware, but the latest patch I'm finding on the official site for my card is labeled "3DS V4.5.0-10". It's the second download down the list here; http://www.r4ids.cn/r4i-download-e.htm

My question is, is that just the last card-blocking update nintendo released (the 4.5.0-10 one)? Or is there maybe a more recent patch for my card I'm just not seeing there? Any insight would be greatly appreciated :)

the newest firmware is 6.0.0-11/6.0.0-12 (depending on region)

the 4.5.0-10 patch they released was working up to 5.1.0-11
but if you updated to the most recent you are on 6.0.0 which only the DSTwo team have released a patch for

I probably should have worded it better; I actually updated my 3ds a few days ago, just before they released the 6.x update, and I'm definitely on 5.1.0-11.

Thanks for the info on the patch :)

ah ok

well you can run the 4.5.0 patch on your card (as long as its a RevC card that isnt metroid (metroid had a bug))

then you will be able to use the card on 5.1.0
then in a few days when the 6.0.0 patch is released you can apply that and then update the console and use the lastest firmware on the 3DS

Finally got my hands on a non-updated DS to update my flashcart with, aside from a bit of confusion (two different updates in the archive, wat) everything went swimmingly and its back up and running on mine :) thanks again to Pong20302000, you're awesome :D

    not sure. I haven't had that issue. the only computer related issue I've been having is with my isp and the smtp server getting authentication errors randomly. I'm going to have to call them again. this started happening again after changing my password.

    you may have to check the box that says "stay signed in." psx place used to have a problem like this for random people, including myself. that will prevent being logged out or it did anyway.
