    Can I just plug my R4i Gold 3ds into the DS with the update nds file and run it, or would it instantly brick it as the card is on 4.5.0-10 and my 3DS is on 5.1.0-11. I have access to a DS Lite and can update it that way, which I assume is the way. I'm new to this scene, mainly just updating, everything should be easy. Any help would be good :)

    It's safe. Just check www.r4ids.cn to decide whether your card can support 3DS5.1.0-11 or not.
    You can should be able to work on 3DS5.1.0-11 as long as it can work on 3DS4.5.0-10.

    If the card already has the firmware that supports 4.5.0-10 than it should support 3DS 5.1.0-11

    I know that it can be updated, I researched that, but I soon found out how the updating works after typing this. Am I correct that, to update from 4.5.0 I have to put it in a DSL and update it to 5.1.0? Since my 3DS is currently on 5.1.0?
