Here’s a step by step guide on how to update R4i Gold 3DS flash cart to support 3DS 6.0.0-11 U and 3DS 6.0.0-12 E.
For 3DS/DSi Users:
Things You Will Need:
- DS Lite console
- R4i Gold 3DS card
- Another working flashcard(like R4, AK2, DSTwo and etc, here I’m using a Supercard)
- MicroSD card and Card Reader or Adaptor
Step 1. Download the latest R4i Gold 3DS Wood V1.60 wood kernel from here (have to re-download it even you did it before). And download the newest 3DS6.0 updating patch from here
Step 3.Open the above two folders with WinRAR or another decompression program. Extract the folder to your desktop, and you will get two folers as screenshot below:
Step 4.Copy all the files in “Wood_R4iGold_V1.60″ onto the root of your MicroSD card and copy “R4iGold_3DS60_Patch_NDSL.nds” file from “R4ids6.0Patch” onto the root of the MicroDS card too. You’ll have all these files on your SD card as below, eject your first MicroSD card from PC and insert it into your r4i gold card and set aside.
Step 5. Download the latest supercard dstwo kernel from here, unzip the compressed kernel and copy all the files from the folder onto the root of another MicroSD card, also copy “R4iGold_3DS60_Patch_NDSL.nds” file from “R4ids6.0Patch” onto the root of the MicroDS card. You’ll have all these files on your SD card:
Step 6. Eject your this MicroSD card from PC and insert it into the supercard dstwo, and then insert the dstwo card with sd card into your DS Lite, boot up the console. Turn off your console and eject your dstwo card after you see the screenshot as below:
Step 7. Insert your r4i gold 3ds card with sd card (in step 4) into the DS Lite console, press “A” to run R4iGold_3DS60_Patch_NDSi_3DS.nds to update your r4i Gold 3DS card as below (attention: do not power off your console during the updating process )
Step 8. Eject your r4i gold 3ds card from DS lite and open up the plastic shell of your R4i Gold 3DS card, find a signal line between C1 and R9 on PCB board,and cut the signal line after updating successfully. (Refer to the screenshot below)
Step 9. Insert the r4i gold 3ds flash cart into your 3DS 6.0 console after all these above has been done.
Step 10. Start Playing Games!
