    the Netherregions!
    i don't think so, that's why they brought out a new card and it was ( at least where i live) a little bit cheaper then the DSTTi

    here in Brazil, 90% or more DSi use R4i SDHC, it is very hard to find another one... So all this people will have to re-buy the flashcard?

    Pretty much so. However you can always choose not to upgrade to 1.4 or later.

    Same. I was hoping to just keep using the same old card in my DS Lite, but now it's apparently no longer officially supported. I'm hoping they release a firmware update for old R4i's just so they're functional with new titles (new cards already play Bowser's Inside Story...), but I'm not counting on it.

    So I guess when Nintendo bring out another firmware update that clobbers this R4i-SDHC version, the owners will have to buy another one, and another one....

    I have the old one and will not buy this version...will probably buy another brand that can updates it kernal like the m3i zero and etc. Deeply disappointed by this company how they stranded thier customer.

    i'm very disappointed as well, they lied to us for over 2 months. I'm going acekard 2i, at least they have a team that comes up with updates and supports all the cards.

    I was just wondering if your new v1.4 cart is upgradable so it can counter future dsi updates without buying a new cart.

    I am also wondering if you can release a new kernel for old r4is just for the increase of rom compatability.

    The new 1.4 cart has a updatable bootloader i believe.

    We have been telling people for months not to bother with the r4 clones, they cant be upgraded. Its your own fault for still buying them.
