    People of the internet I'm in dear need of your help on this christmas eve.

    Got me 2 DSi consoles for the kids in the morning but im having a little issue with the r4i cards that came with them, I've attempted to get firmware from r4i-sdhc to no luck.

    Attached is a pic of the cards and I'd really really really love if someone could help me get these working for tomorrow morning.

    Both show up on the dsi consoles as Star wars, but nothing runs when I try to open them. DSi consoles are both running 1.4E if you need any other info please ask and I'll be here to reply

    Update. I've changed to the picture to show the correct R4 cards, The original image had an old R4 in it instead of the new ones.

    Let's just pretend I'm really really stupid for a moment, What would I do with them? Just download them and add them to the files I ready have on the R4? Or remove everything and just add the Kernels to the SD card?

    Download it and extract it the SD Card. Doesn't matter if you have files as long as hit replace if it asks you.

    Unzip it put all contents in the micro sd card also games you get from the internet, then put that in the r4 and see if it works.

    So just apply didn't files from the site you linked and try after every one? Assuming removing the ones that don't work?

    So Columbo2811 has linked a site full of clones and fakes? And if I find mine there I'm screwed?

    No it should still work. Most r4 are clones. It's just a case of trial and error with them.

    Not really clones most of the time are functional just not genuine you may able to get it to work if you find your r4 and use the kernel provided or you can just start trying the r4 kernels you see on the website after.
