supercard dstwo has bypassed the N3DS ver.4.5.0-10 firmware update, users could upgrade their cards by using its update patch.and supercard dstwo is the ONLY flashcard that does not need a new hardware in order to bypass a 3DS update.

I have the R4 card, and I am wondering if you know how to change the DS software to work on the 3DS format.

Can you tell me what R4 card do you have, what is the official site of your card. And what DS software do you want to use on the 3DS.

Thergox (author)liumike2012-07-01

It is an NDSL/NDS R4 card that uses Moonshell. I can't say what site it is from, because I got it in Indonesia. As for the DS software I would like to use, I am used to Moonshell, but I'm fine with anything else.

If the r4 card you have is a 3DS flashcart, it can play on 3DS console, if it is not a 3DS card, i am afraid the card can not work on your 3DS. As long as your card is a 3dsa flashcart, you should be able to use moonshell on your 3DS to watch videos, MP3, ebooks. But I guess your card is not a 3DS card, so you can not use it on your 3DS. The best R4 3ds card is this one: http://www.dsflashcart.com/r4i-gold-3ds-wood-r4i-3ds-flashcard-for-ds-dsi-3ds-p-248.html   if you plan to buy another card, just buy this one, dont buy others, and i am sure it is working perfectly on your 3DS.

All right, cool. Thanks for the help! I'll make some plans on buying that new chip -- it appears my old one does not meet up to demands.
