R4 Dual Core kernel and firmware upgrade will be maintained at www.r4isdhc.hk since Nov 15th, 2013. Former www.r4isdhc.com will release its New R4 SDHC SNOOPY and R4 SDHC UPGRADE.
R4 Dual Core kernel - Wood kernel is revised from YWG's Wood R4 firmware, do not get them mixed.
Since Dec 29th, 2015, R4 sticker marking changes from 2015 to 2016, no other change to R4 Dual Core hardware.
R4 SDHC Dual Core 2016 in stock are compatible with following console system versions, no further firmware update is required (Updated on Feb 8th, 2017), we have each card in stock tested on consoles with latest system versions.
Note: There may be stage versions, like 6.0.0-1, 6.0.0-2, ..., 6.0.0-12 and so on, they have no firmware compatibility difference.
For any system version above, you need only install kernel to play your DS games.
1, R4 Dual Core Kernel Installation
Download latest corresponding revised wood kernel r4isdhc1.xx.rar to your computer, decompress and extract this rar file with tool WinRar, find and get __rpg folder and _DS_MENU.dat as shown below. Copy and paste these 2 items into the root directory of your memory card. Now, you can plug and play the saved DS games. (Note: Do not decompress into your sd memory card directly, it may get a white sreen when booting the r4 card)
2, R4 Dual Core Firmware Update
If your console blocks R4 Dual Core and gets a black screen with power off error message, now you need to do firmware upgrade for your R4 card. Then how ?
Download latest firmware patch, for example, 3DSV7.0.0-13 upgarde firmware.rar, decompress and extract this rar file with tool WinRar, find and get fwUpdateAll_V7.00.nds, copy and save it to the same place where kernel saved on your memory card. Now you need find another console to load into R4 dual core interface, press A button to run that firmware patch. Some program are written into your r4 IC chip during firmware upgrading, and that is why you may damage your r4 card if happens to shut off the console when running the patch.
Note: This firmware update is only for genuine R4 Dual Core (2013 /2014), it does not apply to fake r4 dual core or other versions. For more firmware upgrade guides, you can search and discuss at YouTube R4woodcenter.

I just bought 2017 r4isdhc dual core. And it has the firmware version of 7.0.7. It shows black screen with error asking me to restart and retry on my old 3ds running 11.0.3-36 U with cfw luma 6.3
But the card worked with my friend 3dsXL running 10.0.1. How is that possible? Do i really need to downgrade my old 3ds? Bcoz i cant upgrade my r4 firmware because at www.r4isdhc.hk only provide firmware 7.0.0 and my card has already in the higher version so i cant upgrade it anymore. Plz help
This r4 dual core works directly with normal 11.3.0-36u system, but we do not know about those non-official modified version.

I purhcased this 2017 card with the www.r4isdhc.hk sticker on it. The firmware from the site DOES NOT work with this dual-core card. It is stuck on the loading screen. I have tried the firmware from www.r4isdhc.com as well and it also DOES NOT work. Where do we get the right firmware from? DO NOT ask me for my email address, post the information here so everyone can see, so you don't waste anymore people's time. same problem
The card works fine and you can search r4woodcenter youtube video channel. And we have every card tested on our consoles in case of quality problem. You can follow the guide page or video guide to set up the card. Here I could not show detailed help as you do not mention the problem in more details. Only that Loading problem may caused by 1, Wrong kernel used, 2, kernel file broken, 3 kernel installation in wrong way, 4, memory card not formatted into right format, 5, kernel installed into wrong directory ...

For this r4 dual core with official site www.r4isdhc.hk, you need to use kernel from page http://www.r4isdhc.hk/download_white_new2014/index.htm
We have sold these cards for years, and every card was tested on our consoles, please follow the guide emailed to set up your r4 cards.

I have r4 dual-core2015 and i enjoy using it. Can I still update my r4 using the latest firmware used for 2016/2017? I'm worrying now cause nintendo is making now a action about hacks and cfw but i didn't cfw my console cause I'm currently playing other 3ds games online but still love to play old ds games (im not interested about cfw cause of bricks issues. Im afraid). Thanks

This product is fake, Don't waste your money.
I'm not joking.
you guys wasted 8 Pounds on this stupid fake.
For the real thing go here
What genuine it is ? Have you tried those cards from www.r4isdhc.com ? Do their cards still run wood kernel ? Why do they run homebrew similar with www.r4i-sdhc.com ? Please be a responsible to yourself before your comment :)

I can't get any cheats to work on the card which defeats the purpose of why I bought this product. I checked other reviews here and seems like it's a trend. Tried searching for YSMenu Kernel as suggest in another review but it's very difficult to find which one matches for this R4 card as there are so many versions.

le descargo los archivos a la tarjeta como dice anteriormente, pero al momento de correr la targeta r4 en la NDSi se queda en loading
Have you formatted your micro sd memory card into right format ?
