There are too many kinds of r4 cards in the market. We can't test all of them. User can check the official website printed on the label to get more information. If there is no news on official website, it is better not to upgrade the 3DS system. But if the 3DS is already V4.0.0-7 system, you need to buy a new r4 card. We strongly recommend the R4i Gold 3DS or the R4i SDHC 3DS card.
