    Hey Guys

    Here is the puzzle

    I have a Chinese R4i 3DS card ( Rev 6). It works perfectly with my Older DSL , apparently running Wood 1.28 Kernel.

    I have since purchased a new 2 DS , which came with 8.1.0-19 firmware

    I inserted the the RSi Gold Flash card into my New 2DS , however it did not work . After some googling I found this guide , which mentions that many ( Including R4I Gold ) FlashCards will still work


    http://3ds-flashcard.com/blog/3ds-8...-flashcart-support-nintendo-3ds2ds-v8-1-0-19/

    According to the webpage in link , in order for the Flashcard to work with 2DS/3DS the R4I Gold card needs to be upgraded to Wood 1.62 and along with a Patch ( r4igold_3DS62_Patch) , which brings us to the following page :

    http://3ds-flashcard.com/blog/how-to-upgrade-r4i-gold-3ds-wood-r4-1-62to-work-on-3ds-6-3-0-12/

    I also noted that the Patch file needs to be applied to the R4I while using a Nintendo DSL or DSI , as the 2DS has a incompatible firmware
    .

    So I updated the R4 I Gold card with the Wood 1.62 , Then I popped it into my old DS , by simply unpacking the Wood files to the SD Micro card . I also put the r4igold_3DS62_ patch file on the sd card

    The wood update was successful , I then attempted to load the patch file , I ejected the flash card ( as instructed in readme file ) reinserted , then pressed a to upgrade .



    I keep getting Failed , I have been unable to use the patch at all

    So then I tried Wood 1.64

    The 1.64 wood also worked , however the patch also once again failed ......


    I also noticed that although the Wood software updates , the SpongeBob Icon remains the same :

    Any Help?

    If you use RxTools or a CFW to boot up the system, then use FBI to install the bluecardfix.cia file from gateways latest firmware file. That will let the 2DS recognize the r4i.

    Edit: You need to install the bluecardfix.cia file to the sysnand, not your emunand.

    Thanks for the replies

    I can appreciate that RX can make the 2DS recognise the R4i , however I want to be able to use the R4i with friends and family's 3ds/2ds consoles , so updating the card is the way foreward in an ideal world

    Seems like this card , just will not update , there is posts about cutting a track on the PCBA - would this help

    Perhaps I should just buy the DSTWO Plus ? I found it here for $50 http://www.r4gateway.com/supercard-dstwo-plus-dstwo-flashcart-p-46.html?jdfwkey=tuszp2

    If you can convince me that this is easy enough to do and that there is a clear straight forward guide on this , then I may go down this road

    I'm not going to try to convince you of anything. If you rather spend money then do a little research, then go for the DSTwo Plus
