    Can someone please explain to if I should upgrade to this and which one i should use. I have an original R4 running R4YSauto v0.0.2..I have been playing games okay up to about Dragon Quest 9...But I want to play Pokemon Black and White in English... I don't know what to upgrade to... I hear wood is the new thing.. Sorry been out of the loop.

    Would i have to get new roms, new cheats, and will my saves transfer over? thanks.

    If anyone has any other recommendations or solutions I would really appreciate it, thanks.

    you can only use wood if your r4 is a original r4 flash cart and you just have to change your sav files game from ROM-NAME..sav to ROM-NAME.nds.sav

    Wood R4 uses the *.nds.sav file extension for it's save files
    so if your saves are .nds.sav than it should work..if not than just rename them

    Thanks. The Link i just received was for wood 1.4.. Are you using 1.5? What is the latest version.

    My R4 crashes a lot, and freezes when I close it on standby. Does this new I wood more stable, or is that just my actually card.

    Read this for the saves! [​IMG]

    Don't know!, My brother has the same problem. [​IMG]

    P.S.
    He has Wood on it (latest) but still crashes after a while and/or if he closes the DS. [​IMG]

    No!
    Wood works only on original R4 and/or I think it works on M3 DS Simply, not real!
