    Hi there!
    I just bought one of these cards for my DSi LL,

    (Edit: I couldn't post an image due to newcomer restrictions)

    And after some research and test, I couldn't find any wood firmware compatible or workable neither a *.nds wood mode.

    Is there such a thing? anyone here has this card or a compatible wood?

    Right now I'm using the default r4 firmware, but it sucks.
    Problems with filename everywhere, and it soo ugly comparing with wood that I'm used to at my very old dslite.

    Any ideas?

    But, that not my card. My card is that "yellow" one with a 2018 banner press.
    At the end of URL that you give me, put this ID: ProID=490
    OR search at google like "2018 R4 R4i Gold Pro Flash Card Adapter for Nintendo DS"
    (these user limitations are understandable but sucks, I can't even quote an URL posted by someone else.:hateit:)

    And even so, there's no information about wood firmware on that site.

    The answer was quit buying shitty Chinese clones with a timebomb and buy the proper card as I linked

    So, my card isn't compatible with wood firmware, only the "plus" one. Plus can be one of these with a built-in timebomb. Thas cute.
    After some research, the only way to block it its exactly what I want to do, installing wood.

    Well, lots of news here. I'm aware of DS scene for years, I just was stuck and gaming on my old dslite+r4+wood for YEARS.



    I'll ask the guy that sold me about the precedent site that He got these cards.

    Thanks so much for the answer.
