Which R4 card will always support the new 3ds update, like the next 11.4.0-37?

These questions about R4 3DS card are often asked in 3ds-flashcard shop recently, so for other people who also want to know the answers, I feel it’s must to write a artcile to solve your worries. If you still have more problems on 3DS R4 flash card, welcome to e-mail to [email protected], not matter what is your question, we would like to give answer.

R4 3ds dual core, R4i gold or R4i sdhc 3ds, which supports the next 3ds update 11.4.0?

Firstly, I can confirm you that the 3 flashcards all are supporting the current 11.3.0-36 firmware version. There is a video proof you can check here. Then, whether or not they can support the next 3ds 11.4. The most possible answer is Yes. Because from the 3ds v6.2 to the present one v11.3, no R4 3DS card is blocked or banned. Nintendo company is not wanting to waste time to patch these flashcards which only support the old NDS games, that they do not release new titles long long ago. Currently, their attention is focusing on the newest home and portable Switch console. What they have done in these years aming to 3ds hacking scene is blocking the free homebrew exploits by updating to new system version.

All in all, do not worry, if you want to buy r4 3ds dual core, r4i gold 3ds, r4i sdhc 3ds, r4i gold pro or other cards, they should support even 3ds udpated to v11.4/11.5/11.6 in the near future. The money you pay for the R4 card in USA reseller will not let you get the item only works on 11.3.0-36.

How long an R4 3ds card can keep to work on 2DS, 3DS or NEW 3DS?

In generally, an R4 3DS card like the R4i 3ds dual core, R4i gold 3ds and R4i sdhc 3ds rts, they can support DS games on your consoles at least for 3 years. But the time is not always fixed. There are some factors can increase or decrease the time.

  1. Keep updating your R4 card to its latest firmware version.
  2. Keep your R4 in good condition, do not break or damage it.
  3. Choose a better Microsd card for your R4, the Sandisk one will be a good option.

Also, among the R4isdhc dual core, R4i gold 3ds and R4i sdhc 3ds, you would better choose the later 2 flashcards. Cause the r4 3ds dual core card from is released a new version every year, which makes you feel bad when you have the 2016 version but the year is 2017, though 2016 and 2017 R4 3ds dual core are nearly the same flashcards with the only difference lies in the producing time and image printed.

  • R4i sdhc 3ds – From, supporting ds games with no problems, allowing 4 real-time save files in RTS functions and the main advantage is its regular updating firmware version. The flash card team is very active.
  • R4i gold 3ds- Runs the wood operating system, the most famous DS flashcart in market. More expensive compared to other cards, but you definitely get better build quality and more bang for your buck as it also packs in-game free cheat, real time save, multi-media and better game compatibility.

Do we need to install firmware to R4 card and which one supports 3ds 11.3/11/4/11.5?  

Of course, without the R4 firmware or kernel, the R4 3ds card you buy can’t work on your console completely. The Firmware (or Kernel as it is more commonly called) is the heart and soul of the R4 3DS. Without the firmware files, your r4 will not be recognized when you insert it in to your 3DS, 2DS or NEW 3DS system.You can think of it as the boot loader, or menu system for your R4/R4I card.  In fact, one of the biggest reasons why many have issues using their cards when they first receive them is because they have not yet installed / copied over the firmware files to their micro SD Card.The R4 3DS firmware is what will install the menu, and allow you to load all of the games, applications and software you have on flash card.  

Here I can list you all latest R4 3DS firmwares supports 11.3.0-36, as for hacking the future version 11.4 and 11.5, we may have newer R4 card firmwares, in that time, I’ll add it to here again. So do not forget to check this post again while the 3ds 11.4/11.5 released!
