If you are using an older system and decide to update your Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 3DS XL Console, it takes a little bit of effort. You’ll have to make sure that your R4 3DS has new firmware available for the System OS. If it does, you have to download and install the new firmware kernel before you try and update R4 3DS Card. Otherwise, it’s just not going to work. If you find that there is no new firmware, wait until it does, simple as that.
If you’ve installed what you think is the newest firmware and you fire up the system but only get a Menu? prompt, don’t worry. The problem is that you’ve most likely loaded the wrong firmware kernel on the micro SD Card. Re-check the box your card came in and make sure you go to the right URL to get the download. In some cases, it’s just not available yet and you may have to wait for a new update, or get the right version of the firmware from another source. Use forums and ask questions, somebody out there has had the same problem and worked around it, guaranteed.
A good R4 3DS adapter will also allow the user to surf the internet, listen to MP3 music, run Homebrew apps and download movies and eBooks on the 3DS. Of course, all of these require the system to be unlocked. The reality is that with a R4 3DS card, your Nintendo isn’t just a gaming system, it’s a complete communication and entertainment system. This is why these cards are in such high demand.
Get ready to do some serious gaming with your R4 3DS Card! All the classic games are represented in emulators that cover Atari 2600, C64, MSX Computers, NES, Super NES, Sega Genesis/Mega Drive consoles so many more we can’t mention them all. Just know this, when you have one of these cards, you’ll seriously never run out of classic games to play. They’re incredibly easy to find online and you can download and play them until you drop.
Be careful about where you buy your RV 3DS cards, get recommendations from experienced gamers and follow their advice. There’s nothing more frustrating than spending good money on bad products and this is no exception. Make sure you follow the instructions, get the updated firmware and most of all, enjoy!
