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 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 ?

I can't believe how much of a great website this is! I tried many other websites and they wouldn't accept my money! This website accepts with easy payment and also replies almost immediately to any questions or problems you face! I do recommend if you are looking to buy a card easy and fast!

I have a r4 sdhc dual-core 2016 card and I was wondering if it could play 3ds games on my 3ds?
If you want to play 3ds games, recommend to get a Sky3DS PLUS or a gateway 3ds. This r4 dual core can only run ds games.

I have a few questions...
1. Does my R4 sdhc Dual Core 2015 work on my old 3ds 10.7.0-32E? I have the newest firmware istalled on my R4 card.
2. I have also an Ds Lite with the latest firmware and I tried to update my R4 card with it, but it keeps stuck at loading. Because of that, I turn off my Ds Lite and when I try it again, the same thing happends over and over again.
There are several r4 sdhc dual core with different official site. It is confirmed that r4 dual core 2015 from www.r4isdhc.hk will work on your old 3ds 10.7.0-32E.
