    Here.
    Right, so I have my R4i gold card, however I’m not sure whether or not it’s the real deal or a rip off copy. Could someone tell me if they are aware of if the card is a clone or not?

    This is a picture of the card and box: http://www.r4wood.com/product_images/uploa...pgrade%202G.jpg


    Box image is: http://www.r4i-gold.com/ad/oldp.jpg
    That is the image of the box that actually came with my card.

    whilst I’m here as well, does anybody know of any updates that may work with this card to make it work on the DSi Firmware Ver 1.4.1E or is it now blocked and needing a new card, as I’ve seen on other websites they have a program that you run on the card when its in the DS and it updates the cartridge and it should then be playable on that firmware again. Any help appreciated. [​IMG]

    A lot of sites use that favicon for some reason.

    but yeah, does anyone know if it would be able to get it to work on Ver 1.4.1 or is it broke?

    Anything, yes ANYTHING other than "R4 Revolution for DS (NDSL/NDS)" is a FAKE.
    That includes, but is not limited to: I, DSi, SDHC, III, IV, Ultra, Upgrade, King, Renovation, Super, Gold, Red, Christmas, LL, 3D.

    Probably not, since many of them don't have updateable firmware.

    But would they still work as legit cards though, cause the card i've got actually worked with the Dsi Firmware Ver 1.4, but i accidently updated it and now it just won't work at all. :'(

    when you see someone with a shoptemp signature, just click on it, it'll take you to shoptemp, when you buy something, the person who's link you clicked on will get a little credit..you can do it too
    there's a thread on it, it's a way for people earn credit towards purchases at shoptemp

    Ohh i see, ok, cheer. another thing before i'm finished, would you advise me to use the premium flashing thing or should i be fine without it. if it's actually having all of the most up to date firmware on the card for when you get it, i think i can do that myself, but i wanna make sure if it would be more beneficial

    it's easy to flash the acekard yourself
    as long as you have access to a ds lite/phat, or a dsi with an older firmware
    step 11 of this guide explains it all
    http://gbatemp.net/t218103-updated-n00b-gu...up-your-acekard

    but if you feel uncomfortable doing it yourself or if you don't have access to a ds lite/phat, or a dsi with an older firmware, than Yes I think you should get the flashing update

    Here.
    So flashing means using a program that has the file extension of a nds game and using it from there in a ds phat or lite to run the prgram, which then updates the actual catridge itself to support Ver 1.4.1? cause if so, then i've tried that with my other card already so i should be able to do that fine.
