    So I bought an R4i sdhc dual core from here http://r4andmore.com/r4i-sdhc-dual-core-last-gen/
    Because I am kinda poor and I wanted it for my recently acquired and repaired DSI and to be able to use it in my ds lite as well.
    Well I feel that i've made a horrific error in my judgement as not only does none of the firmware versions work when I do get something that even remotely works none of the roms will load. I own 2 ds lites which it doesn't work and to add insult to it gets jammed in the card slot, and I have 2 dsi's one with version 1.4.5 and one with 1.4.a dsiware . From what i've read on various places on the internet I feel I may have blown $10

    Here are photos of the offender and it's insides HNI_0089.JPG HNI_0090.JPG
    Have I blown my $10 or does someone know how I can get it to work.

    Make sure you're downloading the right kernel, match the picture on the site. R4/i/-/SDHC (both teams) make a LOT of clones, copying various designs and kernels and so the downloads for one tend to not work for another.

    I have tried several versions of the Kernel and none of them seem to work :'( I have emailed the dealer in hopes of them being able to give me the right firmware. I do believe it is the 2012 version though.

    I saved up money and oh my god IT WAS WELL WORTH IT! The DSTWO is about the same price as an average new retail ds game here so it was an intelligent investment. Just saving to get a second one for my son now even though I have bought him some proper games I want him to be able to watch his Dr who stuff on his DSi before bed.
