    So, I got an R4i Gold 3DS flash cart not too long ago (about a month?), and since today, it's been consistently softlocking (games freeze, but music continues) after just a few minutes of playing any game. The ROMs I'm using are clean, and don't freeze on Desmume. This started to happen after a few hours of regular gameplay, and I haven't changed the contents of the micro SD since a few days ago.
    Anyone know what might be the cause of this and how to fix it?
    And "get a better flashcart next time" is not a solution; I know it's a cheaper-end option but I've never heard of it having issues like this so soon : p

    Right sentiment, wrong reason. The r4i Gold 3DS is the recommended flashcart to get.

    Sounds like a defective unit, send it in under warranty.
