    don't expect any other fix except compatibility for the R4 as it's not necessary and kinda like they can't figure it out but hey, that's what R4 is all about ie.) games compatibility

    Every time I see "R4DS Kernel Released" I hope for Wii connectivity...

    A man can dream.

    I think it's safe to assume that the R4 is all that it will ever be at this point. I don't think we'll be seeing any "new" features anymore. It appears all they ever do is fix compatibility issues now. But at least they do that, so I'm not complaining.

    I'd really like to see what a team like the R4 team could do if they made a more feature-rich cart.

    I'll install this update (no sense in not running the latest firmware, IMO), but I wasn't interested in Suxor....err.....I mean Luxor anyway.

    It's funny how some people flame the R4.......I mean, it runs ALL the ROMs, what more do you really need? I don't know, I guess some people are just jealous or something. Whatever.....I'm glad I bought an R4 and not something like a DSX.

    Rock on R4 Team! [​IMG]

    Im not expecting any more new features. People need to be more grateful that they are still alive and still making the r4 100% compatible with all games

    They already said it's not possible, a new R4 cart will come out with SDHC support, stop hoping you are not getting this onyour existing R4 ever.

    (lets see if that ever comes back to bite me [​IMG])

    I'm happy to report that this update doesn't break FFIV (J). It actually seemed to load faster if my perception is correct. [​IMG]

    I'm really tired of people coming in these update threads and complaining about a lack of new features. You sound like spoiled entitled children. Just leave it out.

    I agree. People seem to complain if they can not have everything. If they want to have features (imo useless) that these other carts have well save your pennies and buy one.

    People seem to forget that the R4 was released a long time ago and as such it was one of the first Slot 1 cards. It was also possibly the best of it's kind at the time of its release. Are you really surprised that technology has superseded it?

    It's like buying an iPod and then complaining that Apple don't make an update that makes it do the same things as the new model..

    If you really want newer (Wii Connectivity, microSDHC support) features, buy a new cart. I mean, they're about the same as/cheaper than DS games at retail price.

    First of all, Wii Connectivity is not useless. Second of all, I've heard it's possible on the R4. Third of all, I've heard it's not Wii Connectivity, but just Pokemon, as Galaxies works. Is that right? Fourth of all, you're not entitled to it. Although, if they claim 100% compatibility, they NEED Wii connectivity. That's part of compatibility. And it DOES NOT round up. You either have all, or not all. But, the R4 is much better than most flashcarts. And it has a cool name. So, need it? Buy a different card. As for SDHC, I don't need it, I think it's rather useless unless you're using .dsm.

    So, I'm complaining about everyone, not just one side. Me? I don't need it. Yet. I might want it in the future, if there's a good enough game. And, I'd only need SDHC if all of a sudden games start taking up more room.

    Well I want SDHC for my music and movies and games to be all in one, so I don't have to switch sd cards every time I want music or games.

    Was the R4 advertised as being SDHC compliant when you bought it?

    I think what we need is for some manufacture to come out with the 4gb non microSDHC. it is the same way the 4 gb SD non HC works. If that comes, i think more than half of us will shut up.

    I think the r4 doesn't have SCHD also i think it would take a hardware fix to apply this as schd wasn't avalible when they were made..... If you really want schd buy one of the newer cards [​IMG] r4 pretty good though
