    So while trying to register, it said the username was already taken, so I was like, wow, and I actually logged in. Not sure if I made an intro but even if I did, I honestly don't recall being at this website at all lol. So i'm new here because I officially just bought myself a Nintendo DSi, told my friend where I can get it...tweaked? He told me to come here so I did. Only thing is, I'm searching around but I seriously have no clue what to look for and to start looking for. It says my Firmware is 1.3U. Not sure if I did a right thing but I went online earlier and bought something where it was R4 + a memory stick. So now just waiting on that, but what else can I do? Anyone willing to direct me towards the light?

    unfortunately, you didn't [​IMG]
    if you bought an r4 then it won't work on your dsi
    if you bought an r4i then it will work but it's the crappiest of the crappy.
    as long as the games you wan to play work then it's ok but a lot of newer ones will not...

    hope that helps...

    If you ahve $21 for another act buy the M3i Zero From dealextreme its the best cart for the dsi
    if you want something cheaper go for the acekard 2i
    but i highly reccomend the m3i zero

    while it's true that sakura is a much loved sexy beast, it has terrible homebrew support ad the alternate m3i firmware (touchpod) is sluggish and pathetic i much prefer my acekard 2/2i with akaio to my m3 real

    Well I'm still kinda new to DSi, so for now I'm buying Kingdom Hearts because i'm a huge fan. But for other games, I'll grab them seperately with whatever works for the DSi. So I haven't updated, so I guess I'll buy the Acekard? And...where can I find the acekard? (I really like this place, people are extremely nice lol, awesomeness.)

    Fixed. And this is totally subjective to personal taste, as a FPS, I though it sucked crap compared to some other DS FPS.

    Why not just point him to the Essentials thread? http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=153304

    Sweet, I'll get that. Now the only thing is, how do I continue from "fixing" it? Or should I wait until I get the acekard then ask questions lol?

    Oh wow, so no flashing of any sort? Just pop in the card, and just play? That sounds way to easy...seriously? lol I really gotta try it now. Also, I remember reading to not upgrade firmware since 1.4 blocks the SD Card.

    No you can there is a fix but do it after you get the acekard so that first you can fix the acekard and then update

    "MicroSD"
    They come in 1,2,4,6,8 and 16gb
    I would sugest you buy a 4gb or if you have extra money 8gb but not more than that you wont need it
    Im using an 8gb sandisk class 4 microsd and it works flawlessly with the acekard 2i and AKAIO

    Sandisk it is then. Funny how Sandisk works perfectly but Sony's Memory Card doesn't work with Sony PSP XD. Sandisk has always been there for me since then. But thanks a lot dude. Greatly appreciate it. Anyway I can contact you directly like MSN? Facebook? Myspace? Incase I have any other questions? You seem like you know the ups and downs of the DSi.
