    I bought what i thought was a r4i gold card from here http://lightake.com/detail.do/sku.R4i_Gold...Si_DSi_XL-22965. The website listed on the cart is r4ids.com. But after trying to load several different wood firmwares. The only firmware i got that worked is akaio 1.8.1. Does this mean i have a acekard and not a r4 ? Also will it work in a dsi without blowing the dsi fuse? Sorry for all the questions just not sure what card i got [​IMG]

    Try it on a DSi.

    There shouldn't be anything bad happen. If you don't feel safe trying it, don't do it.

    You got an R4i Gold 2.0.

    Look at the sticker. It's written there, dumbass.

    If you wanted the one for Wood, you got the wrong card.

    Since that one runs AKAIO 1.8.1 I'm thinking is just a re-brand of the R4 Ultra, which had 1.8.1 support it... but later AKAIO versions don't.

    Wish people would stop buying R4s.

    Note that the prices given are from chinese shops.
    If you order from a shop in another country it's more expensive.
    [*]The original R4.
    NOT "R4-III Upgrade", NOT "R4-SDHC", NOT "R4i NDSLL", NOT "R4 Red", NOT "R4 King"...
    NOT ANYTHING ELSE WITH "R4" IN THE NAME! JUST "R4 Revolution For DS".

    The cheap card for somebody that just wants to play games on a DS/Lite.

    [*]R4i Gold
    The cheap card for somebody that wants to play games on a DSi with more storage.

    [*]Acekard 2i
    Mid-range card for people that want to play games on a DSi/XL with some extra features.

    [*]EZ-Flash Vi
    Higher-end card with even more features.

    [*]Supercard DSTwo
    Pretty much the ultimate card right now.
    • DS / DS Lite
      The card will work on an original (fat) DS or a DS Lite.
    • DSi / DSi XL
      The card will work on a DSi or DSi XL as well.
    • Game Updates
      Firmware updates are what let cards play newer games, these are the life-blood of the card.
    • SDHC
      SDHC refers to SD cards larger than 2GB (gigabytes). If there's no SDHC support, you can only use SD cards up to 2GB.
    • WiFi Update
      The Acekard 2i can update it's cheats (and get minor bug fixes) over WiFi without having to connect to a computer.
    • Auto Ap Bypass
      Some carts have special features to ignore AP in most games, letting you play them without having to wait for a firmware update first. The Acekard only has partial support for this right now.
    • RTS
      The Real-Time Save (Save State) function lets you save and reload your game progress at any moment you wish.
    • In-Game Guide
      You can pull up text files and images in-game, in order to check a walkthrough or map you downloaded at any time during a game.
    • Slow Motion
      The card lets you slow down the game speed as you wish.
    • In-Game Cheats
      The card lets you create and modify cheats while the game is running.
    • Special Homebrew
      The card has multiple pieces of special homebrew, such as it's own GBA and SNES emulators, as well as text/PDF reader and video player.
    • Battery Life
      Unfortunately the DSTwo's extra CPU and RAM (which give it the special features) eat into the battery life a bit.

    Sorry buddy , you got the wrong cart.

    I'll consider remove this r4i gold v2.0 since it really confuses some people who are not familiar with these things.

    Holy shit. A site that actually cares more about the customer and keeping a happy user-base (because they know it means more in the long run) than the prospect of an immediate $20?
