    Hi, I bought a R4i v. 1.4.2 from r4issdhc.com long time ago and I would know if I can upgrade it to work with the DSi FW 1.44. Could you please send me the files?

    Please don't say 'buy a better card': I have a SCDS2 but I want to use my R4, too.

    I think that they changed the "original card" from r4i-sdhc.com to r4ids.cn. Maybe a renamed updatefile from r4i-sdhc.com would work.

    no they didnt
    R4iSSDHC.COM Copyright(C) 2011-2012

    the site is under completely different company names

    there are soo many simlar names but all different companies and people
    so you have no hope of it working

    you should be more careful when purchasing a cart in the future

    It was my first card that worked (after a broken R4i-sdhc). I will never buy again a R4 like that. In 2011, they linked to the skins of r4i-sdhc.com and I think that they said that it is the original one.

    I tried the update on a ds lite, it worked (the update progress) - and got a white screen. Now I only get a whitescreen (or better two whitescreens) and nothing more. Is there a way how I can fix it again?

    You'll need another flash cart to start the update program, then swap it out for the bricked one and tell it to apply the update.

    I have another flashcard (that's not the problem) but which *.nds does I need? The latest update.nds bricked it.

    I don't know, I don't have one of those clones. Preferably the one for your exact model.

    They only have one update: that what I used so that I can't use it. Seems like they doesn't support older cards. Yes, I know that it's a dirty rubbish clone or what ever and Wifi doesn't work but it's my first flashcard...
    Maybe I find a update somewhere in the net...

    /edit
    The latest Kernel worked with my flashcard and it's based on YSMenu

    Do you know why there is a firmware update.nds and a update.dat in the update RAR Archive?
