I bought the card from a site recommended by the gba temp shop and its worked great out of the box. I recently saw a new patch update for the card. Now i remember previously when I asked about which cart to buy, you kind folks had informed me to update the cart first and then the 3ds (unless i misread) sooo The back of my cart there's a tiny letter that says "C" so I'm assuming I have the right cart as the patch says only for revision C (from the r4ids.cn site) so I've downloaded the patch and i get two files R4iGold_3DS45_NDSi145_Patch_NDSi.nds and R4iGold_3DS45_NDSi145_Patch_NDSL.nds I have no clue what I'm suppose to do with those two. The readme says " This patch is designed for r4ids gold 3ds(C Version) released by www.r4ids.cn, In order to make your r4ids gold 3ds run on 3DS4.5.0-10 and NDSi V1.4.5, you should update your card with this patch. Please follow the instructions below: In case of card broken(no card found, no Icon displayed): Using the patch: R4iGold_3DS45_NDSi145_Patch_NDSL.nds You should get a NDSL and another flashcard(called "A"), which works properly on NDSL. 1.Download the latest WOOD R4 firmware from www.r4ids.cn and unzip it to the root directory of your tf card;" which leads on to use an NDSi or NDSL ...i don't have either lol so what do i do? My 3ds cart isn't broken Also i've read something about a Metroid icon, mine has a Halo ring or something like that. Should I even bother to update? lol thank you for your time!
