    Hi there!
    I hope someone can help me :(
    i got an old DS (blue one) still 100% working, and i got an old r4i gold v1.4 (r4i-gold.com), now i wanted to play some games but i got problems getting the kernel for this r4i, i looked in r4i-gold.com, the page does not exist, then i discovered that the new page for this is r4i-gold.me, there i got some links for r4igold kernel 1.72b and when i tried to download it, it says the the page is not available. To be honest i alredy google it, and got no luck, if some one know about a page that have the kernel for my r4i or maybe you already have it, pls help me out. Thanks!

    you can probably find the firmware you need here:

    http://www.linfoxdomain.com/nintendo/ds/

    Search by the url on your R4 sticker. Don't use firmwares from other R4 clones, it will give you an error or not work at all.

    R4 clones tend to not have updateable firmwares, that is why they tend to cost less than 15 dollars or less. The linfox site only has the system files for you to run your game not any updates to the R4 clone itself.

    Because the R4 site printed on your card is gone, any updates it would have had are basically gone. You would have to buy a new R4 clone that says it supports DSi 1.4.3 or higher.

    The last update to the DSi is 1.4.5. Any R4 clone you get will need to say it supports the DSi 1.4.5 for you to use it on a DSi 1.4.3 you got or you accidentally update your DSi and end up with 1.4.5 on it.
