I have recently obtained myself a 3DS and I want to update but I know I will lose my compatibility with my R4i if I do. The one that I have is an R4i Gold Pro - Revolution 2013 and I know it's a clone of an actual R4i Gold Website: http://www.r4i-gold.com/ But the thing is that most R4 cards all run on the same operating system don't they? So I'm curious as to why the updates aren't cross compatible and if there is a way to edit the update of another flash cart to allow it to work on mine and allow me to update without worry. Although I'm not so sure if it even matters to update because all it does is add a backup service and bug fixes here and there. And I'm not so sure if there's any free software going around that I'm going to get from the online store or that if even a game in the future that I'm going to get is going to want to force me to update so I can play it.
