Question possibly bricked r4i 3ds gold card??

as i said on another forum:
there was a 3ds update (version 6.2 or something like that yeah) and so i decided to update my 3ds and then my r4i 3ds gold card. (which was a really bad idea, i should've done the reverse)
i downloaded the wood kernel and firmware from the site on the flashcart (r4ids.cn) and updated it on my ds lite but then pressed "A" after it finished..which got it bricked i guess
so i removed the sd card and put it in my acekard 2i with the needed firmware update and tried updating it with my ds lite but when i tried updating with either of the two firmware files (R4iGold_3DS62_Patch_NDSi_3DS.nds and R4iGold_3DS62_Patch_NDSL_3DS.nds) it both gave me the failed card check
now im at a loss at what to do and have been googling for quite a while so i decided to turn to you guys?? any help is appreciated
(i probably missed some details since my memory is **** and frankly im a bit tired so sorry heh)
p.s. does anyone know if the r4i 3ds gold card can open .pdf files??

If you have accepted the latest Nintendo update then it most probably it have blocked the R4i card now. The card it self is ok it's just the latest update blocks the R4i from working.
