    Hi i recently picked up a free DS lite with an R4i cart of my mate as pictured here
    It came with nothing apart from the DS and cart i had a charger

    I don't know what firmware to download for it as when i download some of the official r4 website (i think the r4i cart may be a fake) i get a loading screen it has a micro SD port and here is some photos

    This is the ds lite with the r4i can someone send me a link how to set it working PHOTOS BELOW

    Official Site
    The Gold R4i is yet another R4i clone. Made by the same people as (and practically identical to) the Super R4i.
    NOTE: There is an apparently improved loader version for this card in the r4idsn.com category. Consider trying it instead.
    Alternative Firmware

    I have messaged you with some firmware.
    If you card is faulty or you have issues send it to me and ill repair or replace it free.

    there is not an "official" r4 website..... thats why i said tricky. but i guess you don't care anymore. i don't like when i help someone i ask a question and they say "whatever" thats very rude...
