1. Where in the UK can I buy a card?
2. Is Wood R4 still the best firmware for it?
3. Is R4i the best DSi card?

As for the best card, it's debatable. The DSTwo in terms of features is the best, as it has a CPU in the card that lets it run GBA emulators and SNES emulators at (mostly) full speeds. It's the more expensive of the DS Flashcards. Then there's the choice between the Acekard 2i and one of the many R4i clones. I personally would choose the AK2i, seeing as I've had one since launch and it has yet to fail me.

As far as I was aware, the courts banned flashcarts in the UK. You'll have to buy from another country. Personally I liked lightake.com, but it looks like they may have stopped selling them.

I got mine from an online shop (one of those shown in the actual .cn website).
This website: http://www.digimartz.com seems to be an official retailer according to their website, also, it's located within the UK (although the shipping will most likely come from china or some other country as per usual).

The first one is wrong. The second one appears right.

You want the "R4i Gold" or "R4i Gold 3DS".
"R4i Gold Plus" is not right.
"R4i Gold Hyper" is not right.
"R4i Awesome Tits" is not right either.

And the site printed on the box/cart should be "R4ids.cn".
Not "r4i-sdxc.cn" or "r4i-gold-mega.com" or whatever.

Once before,GBA forum hold a "favorite flashcart poll",from the results,the three popular cards specially welcomed by us are dstwo,ak2i and r4i gold 3ds. If you are interested in r4i series,then r4i gold 3ds is your choice, which with famous wood firmware,quick firmware update,works perfectly on 3ds and dsi latest firmware. You can come to r4ids.cn distributor list ,or google it,or just go to shoptemp,you will find tons of stores .

No, that's "R4i Gold Revolution", and the site is different.

Honestly, what's so fucking hard about this? "R4i Gold", and "r4ids.cn".

The site says it comes from r4ids.cn but wasn't sure about the revolution bit.
The site is gbatemps official sponsor so STFU :)

  • They listed "R4iDS.CN", but the picture says "WW.R4i-SDHC.COM.AU", the supplied photos are of a different product. They listed "R4iDS.CN" on the wrong cart (again, the product you listed is "R4i Gold Revolution", not "R4i Gold".
  • The e-mail says the product is out of stock and not produced any longer, which is not true for the actual R4i Gold with wood support.
  • Just because it's a recommended site doesn't mean it only carries the good carts. Every flash cart site carries the clones because it still makes them money, and they simply list up the descriptions and such that the carts send them.

Obviously, the reply from nds-card is incorrect and it might mislead to some new users, the r4i gold 3ds from r4ids.cn is still producing and selling in every site. And another, the pic they listed in their site is the older version, r4ids.cn has changed the package to this new one.

    It obviously warms candles
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    why would you need your candles warmed?
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    is this like a fetish thing
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Because they obviously need to be warmed
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    The person who made the image was probably just thinking of wax melts and said candles shit happens
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Although the wax of a candle could probably be melted down and repurposed with a fresh wick sometimes the wick burns out and the jar is still full
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    I dont think a candle is ever going to work on there.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    no they're actually called candle warmers

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    Thought that was a mug warmer.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    what i don't get is, if you want the smell, but not the ambience of burning a scented candle, why dont you just get an aromatherapy oil diffuser, scented candles are shit anyway they barely smell

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @M4x1mumReZ they're used for that, but they're called candle warmers

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    I don't get why they would name it that.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    You wouldn't melt a candle with this, as if it was too big for example then the wax would flood the holder.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    That's my theory btw
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    apparently people use them to melt scented candles instead of burning them which sounds like a very roundabout way to accomplish something

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    It would be more recommended though for wax melts.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    yeah you use candles that come in jars, apparently

    You can get those small yankee candles.
