    I just ordered one and am a bit worried. On the eBay listing, it was from Canada and it ships to the UK. it had a picture of what firmware it supports and 9.9.0.26 was on there.

    Can anybody confirm it works on 9.9.0.26E? :unsure:

    Also you should download the firmware from here (not the other place).

    There will never be a difference between regions for this kind of thing, it will for sure work.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    european, usa, or japan or whatever is exactly the same for DS GAMES (including ds flashcarts)
    any card that works on 8.x firmware will work on last firmware

    there is, only in 3DS MODE ( you can't use 3ds games from other regions)
    however when you use a DS card it enters in DS mode, which is region free

    Okay thank you.
    Im browsing different sites where you can buy the gold pro. Im sorry that I am extremely paranoid.
    This site claims that 9.9.0.26U only works with the gold pro:

    my dad works for nintendo.
    there are thousans of r4 cards that have "gold" on the name, or "r4i" "sdhc" etc etc etc
    they all have names very close to each other, which is a pain to choose the right one
    and most are clones or fakes or whatever... even for me its hard to understand

    however, i tell you what exactly you should get
    http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149
    this one, notice on the label of the card (and manufacter\brand) says "r4ids.cn"
    thats the website you want the card from... it's the best r4 card..

    my dad works for nintendo.
    if it says "pro" most likely it is not that one...
    when the card arrives, you will have to go into the website printed on the card, download the files, put on sd card and done
    however if it says it supported 9.x (9 dot something) i assure you the letter on the firmware doesn't mean anything (for DS cards)

    Okay thank you. Here is the eBay listing for reference: It doesnt show the front which is slightly dodgy:
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2015-GOLD...te-SDHC-NDS-/151657415361?hash=item234f7c82c1

    EDIT: Have just checked the item description. It says it supports 9.9.0.26E. My worries have gone.

    The picture doesn't show the front and the title is carefully worded because eBay would remove the listing. R4 sales aren't 'allowed' on eBay and PayPal will pretty quickly lock up the sellers account.

    I don't think the listing should give you worry. There are better ways to rip someone off on ebay than 9£ at a time. Hope the card works great for you! :gba:
