    Same as with most flashcards. You download the latest kernel and install it on your SDHC card plug the SDHC card into your flashcard and then your flashcard into your DSi.

    IMHO whilst the R4i-SDHC is a good card for beginners there are far better cards out there for just a little more money. Why not get an AceKArd 2i instead? They are a much better card with a greater number of features.

    Steps:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    But yes, it is a better idea to get an Acekard 2i.

    1. Get a SD card
    2. Download the latest firmware of your R4i SDHC card
    3. Put the firmware files into the SD card
    4. Put your card into your DSi
    5. Power on and play game ! Done

    After you've gotten the card:

    Step 1: Get a MicroSD card, the best types are PNY 2 GB/4GB MicroSD cards because the Sandisk MicroSD cards make games lag.

    Step 2: Get the firmware files for that R4i-SDHC card here

    Step 3: Take the MicroSD card and insert it into the computer/laptop and then open it by going to "My Computer" on Windows XP or "Computer" on Windows Vista/7 and then open the MicroSD card's folder and drag and drop the firmware files you downloaded in step 2 onto there.

    Then you're done you have the basic structure on there and may add and download more homebrew and etc.

    Please don't buy this R4 clone! Buy an acekard 2i, or a SuperCard DSTWO instead.
