Hello, r4 town, I love your service and usually the r4i sdhc website releases the patch fast but, it been about 2 months and my r4 3ds card from last year still does not have a patch, when will it be able to run on 3DS V4.5.0. Please reply fast.
I recenlty went to http://www.r4i-sdhc.com and on the side of tehre website it say the kernal has been updated to v1.65b, but it doesnt state if that kernal will make my r4 3ds card to work now, When do you think they will release the patch for a the r4 3ds card which I purchased from you last year in summer 2012.
We do not know when r4i-sdhc.com will release firmware patch for old r4i sdhc 3ds, but r4i-sdhc.com is now paying more attention to their new products.
By the way, we are not r4 town, but r4wood.com instead.

R4I-SDHC.COM finally released its kernel V1.65b today, it is a shame that it does not fix the firmware upgrade for old R4i SDHC 3DS. Namely you could not update your r4i sdhc 3ds up to now for 3DS 4.5.0-10.

I have a R4I-SDHC 3DS and A 3DS v.4.4.0-10U, I downloaded the latest update fo rthe kernel but it doesn`t work. Please give me an advise to solve this problem.
Please do not update your 3ds system.
Then what game icon does your r4 card shown on your 3DS console ? Does your 3DS show "Error message to ask you to shut off the console..." when you click that game icon ? And you can read the guide firstly at page http://www.n3dscart.com/pages/R4i-SDHC-3DS.html
