    Hi there, this is my first post, so I'll just go straight to the point:

    I bought a 3ds last week, and a R4i SDHC 3DS (red box) with a 4gb SanDisk microSD

    Today I updated the 3DS, so the R4 doesn't work anymore ("an error has occurred, bla bla bla")

    All posts I see say that the AceKard and the R4i Gold work, so I'm asking if my card is useless against this FW, should I wait for a kernel patch, downgrade/rollback the 3DS or...?

    Any help will be appreciated (not economically, sorry)

    Thanks and have a nice day

    PS: just to be sure, what kernel / fw should I have?

    PS2: wood kernel is just for wood r4 or it's compatible with mine?

    You need to update your cart's firmware.

    So no, Wood will not help this as Wood is not a firmware. You should go to the site printed on your cart and see if they offer a firmware update for it for this new 3DS firmware (though it can take a few days for companies to put out firmware updates so you may have to wait a while).

    Rule number 1 of hacking game systems is do not update, after all.

    last update dates of last week, so who knows when's the next update

    any way to rollback or do i need to keep the 3ds as a very expensive decoration item until then?

    thanks anyways

    so can i force the gold/wood FW into my card to see if it works or will it cause to brick forever?

    thanks

    It will brick it, but if you have another flashcart and a DS Lite/Phat you can unbrick it, so it's worth a shot if you have a second card and a DS Lite/Phat

    There's no current way to downgrade the 3DS.

    If you have a 3DS Model from r4i-sdhc.com, they have a update now.

    Yeah, but this guy's problem is that he has an already updated 3DS? If the 3DS is already updated to v2.0.0-2 it won't work as you can't boot up the card to start it.

    Yeah, shortly after I posted I actually noticed he solved his problem and was aware of the update here.
