    Hello,

    Could someone please point out my error in trying to setup the above card with the 3ds. Here's what I have done so far:

    Flash cart - R4 Gold Pro - with sticker on back saying "YD 2013"
    3DS version - 4.4.0 - 10u
    micro sdhc card - Patriot 8gb class 10, formatted fat32

    Downloaded the wood r4i 1.51kernel update from r4i-gold. com
    Extracted the files and copied the _rpg folder and ds_menu.dat file to the root of the micro sd card
    installed sd card to flash cart
    insert flash cart to 3ds
    power up 3ds, menu shows the flash cart as "Konami Digital Entertainment"
    When I select the flash cart, I get a white screen followed by a black screen with the word "loading" and then it turns to a white screen again and stays there.

    What am I missing? Do I need to upgrade the 3ds to the latest system version for the flashcart to work? Or is the flashcart backwards compatible with older versions of the 3ds system? Please help. Thanks.
