    first of all sorry if this question has been asked before.... im new =)
    ok so i am getting an r4 flash cart with a 4gb sd card soon (prob a clone) and i have been reading a review about it and in it it says that it dosnt have download play support so games like mario kart mario party and new super mario bros wont work (my fav games) with download play..... so is their any firmware that i can get instead of the origonal r4 stuff that will allow me to use download play?

    ive used an r4ultra flash cart for ever and download play works. it depends on what r4 you are getting, as there are many

    1). If it supports SDHC cards (99.99999% of all 4GB are SDHC) it's 100% a fake.
    2). Kernel/Menu/OS =/= Firmware.
    3). Most clones are shit and just sucker money out of people who don't do research.

    If you know your card doesn't support Download and Play, why'd you get it?
    Original R4 supports it but not SDHCs or DSi. 1:1 identical copies will cost you under $5 USD shipped.
    AceKard2i supports it and SDHCs and DSi. They'll usually run you ~$16 USD shipped from most places.
