    My questions are:
    1. Are you able to use ROM running on R4 on Nintendo WFC?
    2. You don't need a FlashMe/PassMe for an R4 because it has one built in, right?

    I mean like how the Wii can't connect to R4s but can it connect to WFC when you're running like a MPH Rom?
    and can the R4 boot up without a MicroSD inserted?

    Yes and no to previous post.

    But a CycloEVO can, and it has outstanding features. [​IMG]

    So I wouldn't be able to check if the R4 I got was working before I got an MicroSD card?

    Working or not, it won't do a thing without the MicroSD card.

    OK, and One more thing, I know Download Play doesn't work on most of the roms, but is it able to do multicard play like trading on Diamond or Pearl.

    If download play, DS/Wii connectivity, or being able to play the new Worms game without patching anything are important to you get a Cyclo DS Evolution. If you don't care about any of those things, save a couple bucks and get an R4.

    R4 has 100% download play, dude. I'd probably get an Evo anyway, even though the R4 is GREAT and I highly recommend it, I'm more interested in the MicroSDHC format than anything else. If it wasn't for that, R4 would be the winner in my eyes.

    Thank you.
    Also, is it possible for an R4 to brick? and will the DS Browser Rom work without the expansion pak?

    No and yes, just download Rudolph's Tool from this site.

    The R4 doesn't require flashing of any kind. It's a simple drag-and-drop feature.

    The Official DS Browser requires the RAM expansion in the Slot-2 that can be substituted with the EZ Flash V 3-in-1. They're are homebrew browsers that can bypass this issue but it's not as fast as the original and shows text only.

    So if I download Rudolph's tool I don't need the Expansion Pack or a EZ-Flash V?
