    The site from your flashcard appears to be.. down. This card could most likely be a clone, as the site for R4i Gold is not r4ids.com.

    The site to the original r4i gold is r4ids.cn You might want to check it out.

    www.r4ids.com is the breakaway team from www.r4ids.cn as ALL r4i Gold cards are clones of one card or another (in fact all r4i cards are a clone of something) there are no "Official" R4 Gold cards.

    As this particular one is the AKAIO version it is an AceKard clone whereas the www.r4ids.cn is a R4 clone.

    However it is possible that the 3DS update is a 3DS and DSi update in one (that's how AceKard.com did it with theirs and as this is a AceKard clone then that's probably how it's done with this card). Just run it on either an unupdated DSi (use the DSi file) or run it on a DS/DSl (use the DSl file).

    did you watch the videos on the other thread . try running the updates on a DS light . if you don't have one find somebody who does. and update the cart .

    update is here ,first one on this page see link

    http://www.acekard.com/download.php#ak2i


    run the update on another ds that has not been updated .

    i didn't try it ... because it's not actually safe ...
    is that the only solution? because i'm beginning to think those clones of R4 never get updated to e played on V1.4.2 Ds

    and i have an old Ds fat yeah so that isn't the problem

    not being safe is untrue the update is crc checked before flashing so it's more or less impossible to flash the wrong update
    here is the correct update to your card http://www.mediafire.com/file/56vzk3r0jhro..._update_3ds.rar

    .



    that is because that update is from april 6 2011 (old)
    r4ids.com has not release an update yet for the new DSI firmware.

    i did email them and they did reply saying they will release an update but who knows when.

    i too have this card and am waiting for the update . if i had a spare card i would try the AKAIO update ..

    the only working firmware at the moment for this card is to take the chance and update with the AKAIO one i posted earlier
