From WikiTemp, the GBAtemp wiki

This page will attempt to provide a comprehensive guide to which firmware, kernel or system files you need to download for your flashcart. We prioritize updated operating systems over the official and unsupported ones. For example, we would rather direct users to Wood R4 rather than the original R4 system files which haven't been updated for years.

The list should be sorted alphabetically.

Clones & Fakes[edit]

  • Clone flashcarts are copies of original cards. Example: the M3 Simply is a clone of the original R4 DS. Systems that run on the R4 DS run the same way on the M3 Simply.
  • A fake flashcart is a device that steals the name of an original card, but that is nothing like it. Example: the R4 Upgrade is a fake R4 DS, it is not compatible with any of the system files available for the R4 DS (a fake card uses its own separate system files).
  • A card can be both a clone and a fake. Most fake R4 cards are clones of the Acekard 2i and DSTT.

R4 3DS Upgrade SDHC Dual-Core RTS (2016)[edit]

  • Official website: (down, try
  • System files:
  • White card, black background on sticker. Sticker has brushed stainless appearance with red (2016) logo in upper right of sticker on cart.
  • I nearly threw mine in the trash before I found a copy of the firmware that this card needs on my other computer (R4i-V3.9b English.rar).
  • This card will not work right with any other FW except the file I've posted on filetrip. You'll either be unable to launch games and get an error about "Savfile not founded" or you'll get a message stating that the card is counterfeit when it boots up. Even trying the FW's that you can download from the wayback archive's snapshots of the r4-usas website will not let you boot with the card. Before the website was taken down, they had posted the FW file I am listing on here. I believe it was only released for this card.

R4i NDSill[edit]

Green sticker R4i, with the website indicated there. English 1.45 firmware (linfox domain): [1] other language firmware also available under the R4i Ndsill links Official firmware 1.42 available from original website. 1.43 flasher (upgrade package) for 3DS and DSi 1.4.3 compatibility available there as well. WARNING: I have personally tried the flasher and it bricked my R4i. I'll try getting it to work, but assume that it will brick yours as well. So unless your card was pre-flashed to work on the 3DS, I don't recommend updating, yet. Kernels are fine though, it's the "upgrade package" (illto143.nds) that's not working for me.

EDIT:: I can confirm this also happened to me and i am unable to get it back working (DO NOT UPDATE) I did hear that we can get it working if we use another R4 card but only from one website and i chose to buy another GENUINE card

Also support from is 0%,, i wouldnt buy from them or touch their cards again... Brought by mistake and bad company imo
