    I emailed support@r4ids.cn to inquire whether the 3DS card had an upgradeable core. I received a reply from r4idsn@163.com which is the email displayed on r4idsn.com stating that the 3DS card does have an upgradeable core (good news!).

    On another note: is it worth getting a R4i gold 3DS as it supports wood R4, the team are active and it has an upgradeable core.

    According to the r4idsn website they use wood R4 too. My questions is is it the standard release straight from YWG or do I have to wait for the team to modify it for the card?

    Correct, r4i gold 3ds from R4ids.cn uses the Wood firmware and you don't need to wait until it is stable because the latest firmware (wood V1.28) is great ,and another you also be able to update the firmware when new wood kernel comes out , just download and update, easy thing....

    Hi guys, i'm new here but didn't want to start an entirely new thread. I was asked by someone to get and R4 card for their Nintendo 3Ds so i got the R4i card and the website on it is www.r4ids.cn and on there they say it will work on the 3DS so i downloaded the Wood software and put it onto the micro SD card and it worked fine on my DSi and i thought that would be it. Today they have given me it back saying it doesn't work at all and nothing is coming up. So they want me to look at it and try and fix it.

    My problem is i have no idea what to even try or change. Their kid is playing with the 3DS just now so i can't even get a loan of it so that i can see for myself and try different things. I think they are going to try and give me a loan of it for a little while. Any help at all would be great from you guys, because i don't have the actual console here with i'm struggling to really do anything. I can assure you all it worked fine on my DSi and that firmware is supposed to be the one that makes it work on the 3DS. What can i do?

    It seems the older carts they sold do not work with the 3DS.
    You'll notice they said the 3DS one can be updated... not the original one.

    From some shop that sells flash carts, and they should cost the same since it's the same product, just with a more updated bootloader.

    I suggest going for a card that won't screw you over with bootloader updates, though. The Supercard DSTwo's bypassed everything with a free update, and it's only around $35 or so from many shops.

    The sites i normally use don't sell anything for the 3DS. It's not for me. As long as i get them one that works just now they will be happy. I certainly wont be updating everytime a new firmware is needed.
