    Hello, I recently purchased an R4 SDHC 3DS Dual-Core card for my 3DS XL in the hopes that it would be able to run 3DS Roms. However, it does not which is something I only found out after I had purchased it because I didn't check online.


    3ds xl version = 8.1.0-19E

    Which card would work on my 3DS while still allowing me to play 3DS roms.


    Thanks

    None, you need system version 4.1.0 - 4.5.0 in order to play .3ds roms. You are out of luck pretty much.

    Is there anyway to downgrade?

    Nope, there is no way to downgrade, like I said you are pretty much out of luck with that console.

    so, if you browse this forum before you got the 3DS,
    you will see many people will recommend to buy a V4.1-V4.5 3DS,
    that's the reason

    Yeah I rushed into buying a 3DS when I bought it about a month ago, my mistake.

    You could try to find a 4.5 3ds. Might be diffucult though.

    trade your V8.x 3DS and get another V4.1-v4.5, really will cost much

    The thing is depending on where he trades his 3ds if he ever decided that, if he has any games or content on the 3ds he has right now i doubt they would let him transfer his data to the new 3ds he would get first before trading the other 3ds.

    I have Mario Kart 7 pre installed on it + I can bundle either Fire Emblem awakening with it or Animal Crossing New Leaf
