    Hi,
    I'm not new to these hacking things but one question......

    I coud not get my R4 1.18 firmware to have YSMenu so i'm wondering if i download a R4i firmware and put it on my normal R4 will it work?


    Thanks

    it wont work mate, how about trying next time, and then telling us if it does, it never hurts to try.

    The R4i has a completely different, i mean if it would dont you think that we could have done it to all the other DSi cards ?

    You should have said so [​IMG]

    But if you ask me, i'd rather have a Original R4, than the R4i firmware, from what i here, the R4i is just as crap as all the others, so why even bother. Just try getting YSmenu to work, i wish i could help with that, but i know nothing, im sure there are some guides on the forum .

    There's R4 support for you

    how about upgrading, there are a load of better flashcards out there now, and at a relatively cheap price.

    I got the R4i on my DSlight on my R4, it works fine just its a bit slower and the cheats dont work. But it did solve my gameing problem, alot of the games that never use to work now work

    v1.22 from http://www.r4li.com/ works on genuine R4s. It has better compatibility than v1.18 but has more bugs than a tramps underpants.

    If YSMenu didn't work for you and the R4li unofficial firmware freezes then perhaps your R4 is a fake/clone.
