    They'd respond the exact same way when I asked the same thing numerous times several months ago. The pre-1.4 R4i-SDHC from www.r4i-sdhc.com has no hope of receiving any firmware updates anymore. If they were going to keep up with it, they would have been releasing updates all along, or shortly after the other cart's updates. They've released 7 updates for the newer carts since the old cart received it's last.

    My advice would be to get the most recent unofficial DSTT firmware, and launch it from the Games menu whenever you want to play new-ish games that don't work on 1.09b, or patch/crack the games so they work without a firmware update. Updating your savlib.dat file and your infolib.dat (must be renamed GAMEINFO.dat for this cart) will help keep you up-to-date as well. My cart still runs 1.09b firmware, and to this day the only game I've wanted to play that won't work (yet?) is Bejeweled Twist.

    no hope, they already made the newer card with 1.4 support so they don't care about older cards, is normal. they are busy to clone their clone , lol !

    Yeah. I'm gonna be looking to replace it soon for a one with 1.4 support and an upgradable core. I'm torn between the Acekard and the EZ Flash Vi

    Just sent this angry email to them:

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I am really beginning to get angry about the lack of support you are showing for your older cards. If there isnt an update for the old (non-1.4) card soon I am going to go and buy a card from a team that supports ALL their products like the EZFlash Vi ot the Acekard2i. Your "technicians" have been "trying to do that" for months now and it is getting ridiculous.

    Thanks, ( for a low quality product and lack of updates(!) )

    Geostar
