    The only card supporting 4.5.0.10 is supercard dstwo. You're out of luck if you don't buy it.

    Nope r4i gold supports it too.

    If your in the US i suggest you buy from dsflashcart.com read the reviews and i recently ordered from them and theyre shipping is pretty fast, you hafta order by the 19th to recieve b4 xmas doe.

    Also on the r4i gold product if you decide to get it on there site. And yeah Dstwo is supported also obviously.

    "
    News:

    Today DSi firmware has been updated to V1.45, blocked flash carts, currently only this r4i gold 3ds card and supercard dstwo card can work on it. the r4i gold 3ds card we send out will be pre updated for DSi V1.45 and 3DS V4.5.0-10,when you receive the card, you don't need a DS console to update it, we know not all the people have the DS console, so we have updated every card before send it out."

    That statement is false, R4iDS.cn revision C is the only other card that will support it. and it's not updated yet..

    The current best cards are the Supercard DSTWO and R4i Gold 3DS (r4ids.cn) rev C.
    You could get the one you mentioned, but the team that makes that card are known to just produce a new card for practically every update.
    So it might work now, but you never know when the next update comes out and you might have to buy a new card completely.
    The Supercard and R4ids.cn teams are a bit more reliable when it comes to that.
    And what's wrong with the supercard DSTWO? I use it as my main flashcard and haven't found any other card yet that came near it.

    It has been updated, hence the announcement, however lots of people are having problems installing the update.

    My friend has one and is currently running Wood R4 v1.55, but he's not updated his 3DS yet so I don't know if it works or not.

    Yes so in all it does work, just some people have problems with UPDATING, but the website i linked if you buy from there it already comes updated so no need to worry.'

    But basically your buying options are the r4i gold and dstwo... R4i if your on a budget and dstwo if you can afford it and should be the best choice.

    I really suggest that you stay away from the R4i Gold, as there is many clones and the actual one made by the Acekard Team might not live very long.

    Try to stay away from R4i clones and buy the DSTWO.

    I'm not sure why you would want an r4i over a supercard dstwo in the first place, dstwo is superior in every way.

    DSTwo is a great card and gets regular (and fast) updates, I would personally recommend it.

    The price.

    ...or so I say before buying the DS2 myself. Then again, cheaper than buying my top 10 favourite DS games.

    They say it comes pre-updated which means it a newer revision C, so yeah.
