R4 3DS Firmware Setup Guides:

We suggest you take a look at our R4 3DS Firmware section first.  Open it in a new browser tab, and make sure to download the correct firmware for you card.  Our firmware page is very simple and plain, and we did this on purpose.  We wanted to make choosing the right kernel for the card you bought as easy as possible.  A picture of each card shows exactly which version or model of the card the firmware files are for.  This way, you can select from any of the different language versions and download exactly the right firmware for your card.  While we do have a few models of the same card, with newer versions, it should take no more than a quick look at your card and a comparison to the image we have on the page, to know exactly which firmware you should download.

Installation and setup of the r4 3ds is actually a whole lot easier than you may think.  You need only a few things to get started, and the correct firmware files and you're ready to go, and you will be up and playing your favorite homebrew or indie games and applications in just minutes.  We've seperated each and every single type of R4 card we carry in to their own specific setup and installation section.  We've done this for both ease of navigating through the instructions and to ensure that our valued customers do not try to install the wrong firmware kernel, which will result in an error message that may appear to show the R4 not working, when in fact with the right firmware, the cards works just fine.

You can of course do the same comparison here with our setup guides.  Take a look at the card you have ordered and received, and then take a look at the images below to make sure you are clicking on the correct guide for firmware installation. While many of the steps are identical from one card to another, there may be some differences that would otherwise cause you to see an error message due to an incorrect firmware installation
