R4 3DS Dual Core 2015 Edition Firmware

As of September 30th, 2017: Now Supports Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL Up To 11.6.0 and DSi XL to 1.45

Our new 2013 R4 3DS Dual Core Card.  If you received our 2013 / 2015 Edition version, please make sure you use the firmware for this card ONLY! 


If you have the Dual Core Card with the 2013 Sticker on it, you need to run the firmware updater. Simply load firmware updated on to a micro SD card, and use your 3DS (below 6.0.0 systems OS) or DSi / DSi XL or regular DS / DS Lite to run the firmware update.  This will update your 2013 card to work on the 3DS V9.7.0 and it will work in even the newest 11.6.0 3DS and 1.45 DSI systems.  DO NOT use the firmware updater for any other version of cards, this is made specifically for the cards with the 2013 sticker.  Some of our 2015 cards still have the 2013 sticker on them due to a mixup at the factory - however, these cards are fully supported and will work on even the latest 11.6.0 3DS, 3DS XL and 2DS systems and will continue to get new firmware updates just as our 2015 version does.

3DS V11.6.0 Upgrade Firmware


If you puchased your R4 3DS Dual Core AFTER January 1, 2015 - you do NOT need to run the firmware updater for your card at all.  Once you have run the firmware updater.  You can then use one of the new firmware files below for your specific language.

Updated Date:[2017/September 30th]

Please choose the language version of the kernel for your card.
