    I'm hitting a wall trying to update my R4i-SDHC 3DS to the newly released 1.42b Kernel.

    I copy the whole thing to the root of the (freshly formated with sdformatter) card and everything starts and runs alright.

    The first time I try get into the "WIFI engine" thingy it also does a "kernel upgrade" and apparently succeeds.

    I then restart the "nds machine" as asked and I get a white screen after the reboot.

    If I delete the whole thing, copy the 1.42b fresh files, it starts alright, as soon as I start wifi engin it tries to update.. blah blah.. rinse repeat. Always a white screen after the "wifi kernel update".

    I tried on both a ds lite and a 3DS.. same result..

    Anyone else getting this or am I missing something?

    Don't know what I did differently, but it finally worked. I'm now on 1.42b and "Wifi engine" doesn't want to update the "kernel" anymore. The update started as soon as I opened "wifi engine" so "not upgrading" wasn't much of an option if I wanted to use it. It's like they'd be saying "Here's the new version but don't start wifi engine, it will mess up your kernel". At any rate, having a 3DS, I'm not so sure I need to pay attention to all this DSi 1.4.3 update thing. The card is a R4i-SDHC *3DS* after all.

    Then again, I've had this card for about two weeks. Used to rock the old DSTT/NDSL combo. Much to learn yet...
