So, I have THIS piece of "magic": http://www.r4igold.cc/index.asp (non 3DS version) for my 3DS and updated to the new frimware so that I could FOLDERS... aaand my R4 now doesn't work... So is there any chance that in a near future my R4 finally works, or should I start looking for an Acekard?

you did not read his question did you?
he updated his 3ds and he has the r4 not 3ds version
He does not specify whether he upgraded the firmware of the cart or the 3DS.
i think "FOLDERS" sounds like the 3ds.
and srry if i sound mean
edit: WHOA WAIT WAIT WAIT how are you using a non-3ds cart on the 3ds?

Probably. I assumed that his original R4 kernel didn't allow folders in the menu, never really thought about the new addition to the 3DS. Also, I don't mind, it's quite alright, I get your point.

Well...

"Enjoy your folders then, they just cost you a flashcart."

Honestly? His best bet for never getting "locked out" is a DSTwo as it may update all by itself as long as it's in a DS/i/3DS.

An Acekard 2i or an R4iDS.cn are the second and third optimal choices.

R4igold.cc had a 3DS Update back in the day. The problem is: those guys took like 4 months to get a 1.4.3U DSi update (I had to wait..), so don't expect a R4igold.cc update anytime soon

Plugs and plays in SLOP-1 without any passcard and supports all DS versions.

Sloppy.

You should add:

r4igold.cn
ndsill.net
r4i-gold.eu
r4i-gold.co
r4iblue.com
r4ixl-sdhc.com

To that list of sloppiness.
That was just the first page of google; I was too lazy to look if there were any other sloppy flash cart makers.


edit- Hey, Luigi2012SM64DS is right! I don't see any slop-1's on my ds either T_T

You can find the current status of all known Flashcards in this topic: http://gbatemp.net/t...ilation-thread/

If your card is "R4iGold.cc (3DS version)" then an update is available via the above link, if it isn't then you'll have to wait. If an update isn't available then you should've waited before updating your 3DS. Now you'll have to wait for a Firmware update to come out for your Flashcard and then you'll need to borrow a DS/lite in order to perform the update(since obviously your 3DS can no longer load your card in order to update). If your Flashcard is never updated then you'll have to buy a new one. I recommend any Flashcard NDS-Gear.com sells, like the Acekard 2i, Supercard DSTwo, or the Real R4i 3DS.

Alright It seems that this R4 had a frimware update for DSi 1.4.4 in the form of a .nds patch. So I downloaded it and tried it on my good 'ol DSphat and it now works! splendid a Crappy, cheap, BR clone of an R4 that doesn't even supports Wood kernel is able to outsmart nintendo's latest endeavor to increase DS games sales.

Remember, never update until you know it won't disable your flash cart. Always upgrade the firmware on your cart BEFORE updating your 3DS. This is day one knowledge, folks.

Let's be even more specific - not the menu, not the kernel, the firmware. Internal firmware - not what you usually change to enhance compatibility.
