    My friend told me that the r4 will not be compatable because the autoboot wont work with the new DSi because it will use new firmware. Is this true? Can i fix this?

    Nobody knows for certain whether they'll work or not. Haven't you read any of the other dozens of topics that explain it?

    ONCE AGAIN........

    there are quite a few OFFICIAL ds cards that boot directly as well... (eg. ds download stations)
    booting directly is an official feature, triggered by just a flag in the rom header...
    so i don't see why this would make the difference for working/non-working

    Itll probably wont. it depends on the firmware. acekard and cyclo will definatley work, since they act like a real game cart.r4 and others probably wont work cos the different firmware.

    (hi frame. ur framework from rizon?)

    I'd be willing to say it wouldn't, because the firmware is going to be different and since the R4 Autoboots I don't know how it would boot. :S

    We'll just have to see.

    Nobody knows for certain whether they'll work until someone actually tries it out.

    I think it's hilarious that people ask all these questions about the DSi when it is not even out. Let's keep it simple:

    a) We don't know if current cards will work. I have a feeling all of the autoboot cards will not work, but again nobody knows for certain, but really why would Nintendo release another handheld without fixing the piracy problem?
    b) We don't know if SDHC cards will work on it.
    c) We don't know anything about it except a few features (How the firmware works is unknown, etc)
    But what we do know is:
    d) It will print money.

    Left behind the news lately? Anyways with the R4 team not supporting it anymore it's definitely not going to work on it.

    How do you know? Do you have a prototype DSi in your hands right now that you have tried various flashcarts out on? Or is it your best guess? If it's a best guess then it can't be definitely can it because you have no idea if Nintendo have put some kind of protection into the bios.
