    Since SDHC support isn't possible for the current R4's, the team are introducing a SDHC range of cards soon. This is why there has been no update in a while. (Got this info from Tempcast 4.)

    It will be better to get m3real, almost same price and ram expansion added to it as a bonus.

    What I hope doesn't happen is that they bring in the new card with SDHC support and drop all support/updates for the old cards. I couldn't care less about SDHC support so in the case that they eventually fix the few other problems (wii connectivity, ARM7, etc.) with an update either with the new card or after it's release, the update better work for the old cards [​IMG]

    They did say it would be in the next update, they just didn't seem to mention the hardware was what the goal of the next update would be though [​IMG]

    I don't mind that the old r4 doesn't get sdhc, as long as keep releasing timely updates to fix rom issues.

    I can't see why they would need a totally different update for the sdhc cards. Only difference is probably an updated card reader.

    The v1.11 Kernal fixes all Download play

    tbh I don't care about SDHC support (cards are too expensive,) Theres no "real" need for it! Its not hard to carry more 2gb cards around and they're so cheap !

    I wonder about the M3 Real. Is the GBA and Rumble Ram Pack RAM compatible with homebrew software? If so, the R4 team just lost. You can get an M3 Real Rumble RAM bundle for just €/$5 more. There is no point in getting the R4 anymore. Both have DLDI autopatch, so there is not much difference in compatibility. Just the soft-reset on the 3in1 tool. and you would be stupid to use the 3in1tol if you have an M3 Real Perfect.
