I had been thinking of getting a DS for a while now, so I recently bought one on an auction in eBay. I also recently got a flash cart from someone who didn't seem to know what it was. Problem here is that I have no idea if it has been updated to work on a DSi with 1.4.4 firmware. From a cursory glance, I am convinced it hasn't been. In addition, the DSi I bought hasn't actually arrived yet, and I have no idea which firmware it's running. Knowing my luck, it'll be fully updated and the flash cart won't work right away. I can probably update the cart with a friend's DS Lite or something, but first I need the right files. This is where things get a bit weird for me. This is what the cart looks like (photo I took; not GIS): Closest thing I can find to that (on the website printed on the label) is this: http://www.r4isdhc.com/rtsjieshaov2/ As you can see, the cart's label says 1.41 upgrade, and the webpage says that the cart is compatible with 1.4.4. So a firmware update should fix any problem, right? Well, on the same page, clicking the "Firmware Download" button leads you to a file clearly labeled V1.42_UPGRADE. Looking inside the archive shows no file being modified after May 21, 2011. The 1.4.2 update came out on May 11, 2011; so I am reasonably sure that it is an upgrade TO 1.4.2, rather than from/for it. So that link is useless. Going to the forums leads to different results. There's an "R4i SDHC V2.0" section there, and the only topics there lead to cart updates. Here's the one for the supposed 1.4.4 update: http://bbs.r4isdhc.c...iewthread&tid=2 Not a member? No problem! The link hidden behind the "REGISTER AND SAY THANKS TO SEE LINK" thing leads to: http://www.sendspace.com/file/vjljwu A dead link. Oh, joy. This is what leads me to ask for help here. Does anyone else own this cart? Do any you guys have that firmware update? Are the thing I found on the website and what I have in my possession completely different things? Does this thing run ROMs in DSi mode, or just DS mode? Is this a clone of another, more popular flash cart, and if so, does that mean I can get the firmware updates from the original and stick it in here? And if all else fails, is there some way to downgrade the console firmware without doing some ungodly JTAG crap? Honestly, I bought the DSi because I want to play Pokemon romhacks and translated JP games. I'm selling my PSP to make up for what I spent on it. Is this fixable, or must I sink $25 on something that works? Thanks to whoever can give any advice.
