    So I finally got my r4i replacement in the mail from zhuzhuchina (I mailed it off 4 months ago). I feel fortunate that it has a Konami logo. It is labeled "C" and has a white dot.

    I wasn't sure if it needed updating or not, so I ran the 1.60 updater and the update installed fine, so it's good to know the latest cards can be updated at least.

    It's exactly what I think.

    This photo card is one of these, with firmware 5.1 and can not be updated.
    The only difference of 4.4 Bug cards last year, is this chip that was clearly moved and reinstalled upside down.

    This shows u are the same cards bug, and have been, somehow, recycled and updated.

    If they did it knowing the impossibility of applying patches, they should replace these cards.

    Is there any word on the non-dot rev c cards getting an update that works, I only bought mine like a few months ago, and its authentic, would suck if it couldn't be updated.

    Side question should I wait ( nothiting really making me update right now anyway), or get a new one? which? and what site is reliable, nds-card.com (where I bought mine) does not seem to be functioning

    This is bullshit. It's like they've just decided to pretend that the update works for everyone.

    So the R4i 3DS team just came out with another update to the kernel. Version 1.61.

    I have my details of what happened to my R4i card here.
    (should be the 4th post down)

    Should I try to cut the line on the card or not?

    I really don't wanna have to buy a third one of these because they stop supporting certain card revisions. I only bought this one in April :/

    Say I want to buy a 3DS compatible r4i. Where online is best? I have a Lite here as well so updates won't be a problem.

    I wish someone would answer my question. I'd like to use my cart on my 3DS again, but I don't want to break it either.

    So...any updates as to the situation with some of the dorasu cards not working? We're two patches in since this problem and I cannot update. Am I to assume that the makers are not going to release a patch? (I was told in a response email I'll have to wait for a patch)

    I'm still on a previous firmware thankfully, but if pokemon ends up needing an update, I'm SOL.

    Hey guys, I've got the R4i 3DS (RTS) cart from r4ids.cn. I've been reading through this thread and another one. I have tried updating to the 6.0 patch and the newest patch on the newest Wood R4i kernal (V1.61) and version 1.60 from the site. I've had no luck, only getting a fail for the update even after reinserting the cart. In the Wood info my R4 is the "HW: R4i Gold 3DSb".

    EDIT: I may have updated it ages ago when this update first came out. How can I tell if I've got the right one installed so I can cut the line?
    Thanks

    Yeah but if they press "Yes" by mistake, can't they then just quickly hold the Power button to power the system off, before the update starts?
