    Yep, let's hope it'll be a grand firmware update. Looks very nice if this is fulfilled, and TBH, the R4 never lied - unlike the DS-X team.

    WHAT THE FUCK??? I sold my R4 because of no SDHC support [​IMG]
    Well that and the fact that I hated how it always loaded itself automatically. Oh well.

    This competition between the R4 and the CycloDS Evolution is really brining out the best in the cards.

    I just hope it continues, and maybe Team Cyclops will somehow figure out that Real Time Save.


    But I'm not gonna get a R4. Have a CycloDS. To get an R4 would be silly for me right now [​IMG]


    But good work R4 team. Now Team Cyclops will hopefully up the ante on their card [​IMG]

    I think it may flash the R4 onboard memory.

    yes, the R4DS and M3 Simply are the same card hardware wise with different firmware GUIs.

    Because everybody on the Internet is too damn impatient. Just on these here forums, it's gone from demanding an update every month (they never made any such promise), to saying they've skipped town and the R4 is done. A whole two months of no updates? That's inexcusable! To me, the 11 updates they've had since it was released (late 2006?) is plenty busy enough. So, if they were to update a web page with "We've added must-have feature #5," and such, then everyone will be clamoring for it to be released right away. They cannot wait a week, month, or any amount of time.

    It really is best to keep quiet and only admit to what you know for sure is going to be released. So if they're saying this now, it likely just needs some final bits of testing. Relax, enjoy what we have. It'll be out when it's done.

    Also, about the Wii connectivity, are there any other announced games (Japan have anything yet) besides Pokemon that do this?

    I think that if ever it may be able to pull off the SDHC support the read and write speeds might be different from other carts that are built with SDHC support in mind.

    Question for the more knowledgeable people here: How do reader/ writers work anyway? Structurally/Physically/ Electronically how does the SDHC differ from regular microSD? Because if the differences are purely on the software/code side then SDHC support will more than likely be possible. However if it is a hardware difference then the only way SDHC support will happen is if the existing R4 hardware has components that can compensate or perform the same functions.

    That said, I'm still looking forward to the update [​IMG]

    the difference is in the card itself, and the software that accesses it. the interface between the card and the reader hasnt changed for sdhc or microsd afaik.
