so i bought a 3DS today, and i bought the R4i SDHC 3DS cart. (red box, website is : R4i SDHC Revolution for NDSi/NDSL/NDS )
anyway, when i first started it, it was working fine. but after i updated my 3DS so i could play mario land, it kept saying ''an error has occurred , please refer to the operation manual for details'

i tried many things after that :
-formatting it FAT32
-updating kernal
-using a DS lite to update (but it didn't work out right for me here, i didn't get a 'configure' option...
-using the white screen fix (it said card not supported... )

i tried following some threads i found here too, but no dice... I'm pretty sure my cart is just outdated maybe. and i have to find a way to update it... when i use it on my DS lite, it says in the top left 1.41b
but, when i updated the kernel, whenever i run it on the 3DS it just says ''MENU?'' in red...

any help would be very appreciated, as i would really like to get into the professor layton series before my vacation ends!
