    Does this also work for the R4i SDHC 1.4? or just the 1.4.1

    Just for 1.4.1. Apparently there are problems with the upgrade and they have temporarily removed it from their website.

    According to the description provided by them , this patch can be used on R4i-SDHC V1.4.1 without window on it. I have got a R4i-SDHC with a window and this patch can not be used at all. Now, I begin to doubt this patch.

    well my friend just dropped me 2 of these bad boys off

    he thought hed flash one and so would i

    the one he flashed on his DSi on 1.4.1 failed and now wont boot (giving a error 38 when trying to re-flash with the update)

    the one i flashed on a DS Phat flashed fine 100% and now works great on DSi running 1.4.2

    both are identical and brand new

    The file is still missing from the site.
    Does anyone know of a mirror?

    the website's homepage (www.r4i-sdhc.com) states that there was a problem with the update, so I wouldn't recommend updating right now.

    Worked fine for me too on a DSL.

    Boots up on DSi 1.4.2.


    Maybe it is only having a problem updating on DSi.

    yea thats what im guessing

    least now we know

    Team just released a new updater
    http://www.r4i-sdhc.com/fwup142b_new.rar

    i was trying to recover the other flashcard but this boots to a Error 2 now
    seems to be doing the check too early
    bring back the Press A so i can switch the cards
