    you need a micro sd memory card..you put the firmware in the micro sd memory card
    for the latest firmware, on the R4 box there should be a website, you go there to download the latest firmware for your cart
    be sure to format your micro sd

    Depending on what R4 you are going to get, yes you can play games from 2008+. Supposing you got an R4 from Shoptemp, I would highly suggest using WoodR4 for your "firmware" (technically it's kernel/OS/etc. but w/e).
    As for formatting, use the SD Formatter and follow this guide:

    Depends. Which R4 did you order? There's 200+ different "R4"s (13 different R4s sold at 4coolday), so I don't know which one you're talking about.

    If that's a 1:1 clone like it appears to be, then you made a good choice. You won't be able to use an SD card larger than 2 GB, but the Wood R4 firmware makes it a pretty decent cart. I used an R4 with Wood before getting my DSTWO, and it served me well for a few months. I needed to find a patch for a few games, but most will already work thanks to Wood's regular updates.

    To put the firmware on the card, just search for Wood on Filetrip, then drag and drop everything in the archive to the root of the SD card.
