    hey guys newbie here i have a quick question or a few of them .i have been doing some reading and searching . and am getting more confused firmware ,clones .v1.41. updating ?
    I came upon this great site while looking for info on my cart after i purchased it without research


    first question . i have a R4i Gold V2.0 (R4IDS.com) using AKAIO 1.8.6a is this a clone card .? is the card a decent one with good support and i have read about some people using wood firmware .
    this one uses AKAIO how come . the website also has a firmware to support the 3ds which i don't have just curious if this really does support the 3ds

    and about the v1.41 is that the cart or the DS
    i have never updated anything on the DS if there is wifi updates for it i don't no .should i be updating the fimware in the DSL also .for better performance? or just leave it alone

    the DSL is used by my 7 yr old she doesn't use the wifi . and about sav files .i loaded a 16GB card up with 420 games how much room do i need for the sav files ? i have 512 MB left for space.


    thanks for any reply i get all info will be greatly appreciated .

    Not to be rude, but a 20 year old (at least) should know how to use punctuation, capitalization, and formatting correctly.

    From what I recall, the R4i Gold is considered a clone card. The AceKard team asked the AKAIO team (who rocks!) to make a one time firmware for the R4i. Currently, 99% of the cards that run on the DSi models load games in DS mode, so no using DSi enhanced features.

    v1.41 is referring to the firmware of the DSi/3DS models. If you plan only to use the DS/DSL versions, it doesn't matter to you if your card is updated or not.

    420 games. [​IMG]

    Most game saves are around 512k. If she saved each game once, you would have about 210MB worth of saves.
