    Hey guys!

    I have an R4i Gold Plus, and I'm wondering whether I should use the Official R4i Gold Plus firmware or Wood.
    I only moved to the R4i Gold Plus because it allows the use of MicroSDHC's up to 32GB in size.

    Could you also quickly tell me how my firmware setup should look? Like, what files I should have in my root menu.

    Thanks so much!

    What is the site on the button of the card?

    If it supports Wood, use Wood.

    R4i Gold PLUS does not support wood.

    Whichever firmware you use (if Wood is supported then use), everything in the firmware download goes onto your microSD.

    Why not just use both? I have like 5 flashcards and like 6 or 7 different kernels running on one microSD card.

    Why not use none. I have like 11 flashcarts and various data spread amongst 3 different microSDs, none of which I actually use on a regular basis.

    Maybe you should get r4i gold 3ds released by www.r4ids.cn, which is officially supported by WOOD R4.
