    So, seeing as how r4i-sdhc.com hasn't updated in two months and is pushing V 1.4.5 carts, I've grown desperate to make the R4i-SDHC 3DS work in some manner. The update has blocked the cart from even working from what I've been told, and outdated firmware won't work. Are there any alternatives in firmware that I can explore, or do I call defeat and just get a new flashcart, one that can handle 1.4.5?

    All the firmware updates we've seen are cart-specific (to that hardware) and encrypted too.

    If your cart got blocked, get a different one.

    Shot in the dark here before I claim defeat, would any update they give in the future be able to bypass it? Any experience with R4i cards?

    When sites push new models (with new labels and version designations), they stop updating the old ones. I've never seen a site go back and update the old ones, other than the R4iDS.CN cart (updating the older non-3DS models for 3DS compatibility).
