    Hi,

    New to forums.

    Im just wondering what happen if you update your NDSi system to newest firmware.
    Does it block R4i?

    Cheers

    Ahem... found by *YOURS TRUELY*. I also mentioned that it was from June of 2009, so It might not be true, especially if it was announced 6 months before the "release" date.

    Anyways, back on topic...

    I think a future update might erase DSi flashcarts completely, since it is basically a NDS flashcard, with DSi compatibility.

    @rockstar99

    What do you mean that R4i might brick my DSi? My R4i comes from orange box.

    @elixirdream

    You suggesting that I should not use R4i anymore?
    So which flashcart should I use?
    Which place can I buy flash carts that can ship to New Zealand?

    the reason i said that is because 95% of us here will say r4 is a NO
    is your choice to stick with r4i because some teams still bother to update their firmware
    as long it updates their firmware and you are able to play whatever you want! thats a good cart!

    however, your concern was system update?
    therefore, if you intend to get any new carts stick with m3i 0 and scds1i
    which to buy between m3i0 and scds1i ! the answer is m3i 0 [​IMG]
    you can read the reviews provided on the NDS-Flashing Hardware and Software forum

    where to buy? DealExtreme or Gamekool

    I can't order from gamekool.com since my paypal address is outside of US so cannot be confirmed.
    where else can I get?

    you don't really have to have a confirmed paypal shipping address..you can choose normal checkout instead of paypal express checkout
    but if you are biding for free-shipping products...it's a must..
