    so i gave my friend an r4i-sdhc but when we did that upgrade thing he thought it was blocked at some point and closed the ds and now the ds won't even read it, is there a way to fix this?

    There is you need another cart that works form r4i-sdhc.

    In case of card broken(no card found, no Icon displayed): Using the patch:

    You should get a NDSL and another flashcard(were call it "A"), which works properly on NDSL.

    1.Download the latest firmware and unzip it to the root directory of your tf card;
    2.Copy Patch to your tf card;
    3.You should get a NDSL;
    4.Just power your NDSL on and boot up Patch with "A" card;
    5.Take "A" card out of the NDSL;
    6.Reinsert your broken card into the NDSL;
    7.Press KEY_A & updating process will begin;
    8.You should keep your NDSL powered on during the updating process;
    9.IF the result shows SUCCESS, it means you have updated your card successfully and this card can work

    No chance because you only actually do update on bricked cart

    Whats the address on front of cart ?

    Yes I know that. You need to follow my instructions

    Get working cart add update file to micro Sd then insert the cart to Ds Lite then select update file.
    Screen on ds should say PRESS A TO START (Don't press A just yet)
    Now swap carts with non working cart.

    PRESS A TO START

    If successful it will say so.

    This is a solution I used myself on a few dead out of box cards i had.

    The update will change the Bootloader. Please ensure Ds is plugged in to charger during update.

    The CPU may have an ERROR.

    I say retry the update.

    You may just have a new dust cover for your ds.

    At least its heading in the right direction.

    Let cart stand for day or two then try again.
    If no luck try the original update software for 3.0
