    Hey guys.

    Well there's already a original R4 emulator, which allows the DStwo to act like an R4, even using R4 firmware. And since the R4 was so popular, it had a bunch of unofficial firmwares (most notably Wood). Well, Menudo has finally been released, and I want to try it on my DStwo, but the SC team doesn't allow commercial ROM loading (well, they don't include it in the SDK), and the R4 emulator is the only way to go. But the R4 emulator doesn't support SDHC, so I'm wondering if someone can make an R4i Gold emulator, as it supports Wood (which Menudo can use for loading ROMs), and it supports SDHC. I only have an SDHC card, but it'd be nice to be able to use Menudo on my DStwo.

    TL;DR: The R4 emulator doesn't support SDHC, and Menudo can't run on the DStwo without it. I'm requesting that someone make a R4i Gold emulator.

    Can someone do it? Thanks.

    It would be over 9000 times easier to just buy a 2GB mircoSD card....

    And if anyone is thinking of actually doing this, wouldn't an Ak2i emulator be more useful?

    It probably is, but I doubt Normmatt would approve.

    It's not making any changes to AKAIO. So I'd say it would be OK.

    I support this too
    or if possible just give the R4 Emu SDHC support its not like its hardware, its software and changes can be made

    You could have just bought the R4i Gold and be done with it.

    That wouldn't solve anything. The whole point was to run custom firmware on the DStwo, such as menuDO.
