    Hi everyone.

    Sorry but this is a noob question.

    Is it as simple as plug and play with the R4i in the 2DS?

    I've some eperience with the old R4 cart with my DS but now I've upgraded to the 2DS and just bought the R4i gold cart to go with it.

    I know with the old R4 cart, I had to have some additional files on the SD card to allow the cart to talk to the DS, is it the same with the 2DS?

    Any help would be m,uch appreciated guys.

    Thanks

    If you're after playing 3ds roms, it won't work.

    If you're after DS roms, be sure the flash kart is the latest.

    The R4i Gold can't play 3DS roms, however it can play roms on a 3DS, per say.

    You'll regret buying a R4i Gold "Pro". :(

    from what i could find, the 2ds ships with a 6.x firmware. the 3ds-mode exploit requires firmware 4.1-4.5. as of right now, there is no way to play 3ds roms in 3ds-mode on the 2ds.

    How come? it arrived the other day, I downloaded the most up to date kernel and installed it on my SD card. Everything seems to be working ok (as in it plays all the ds roms I've thrown at it so far)

    is there something I need to watch out for?

    You have insufficient posts to view location.
    If you like to update your 2/3DS/XL with the latest firmware, your going to be buying a new R4 clone real soon.

    The R4 clone makers moved to a "you are no longer entitled to free updates, you want the new update your buying a new R4 from us" mentality.
