    No .... stay away with anything with R4 in its name. BTW R4is I believe are just clones of AK2is.

    i will say buy a product that has the best support!
    see which product updates their firmware much often!
    you would not want an update only brought to you by every 3 months or never bother to update?

    DSi compatible cards..

    ak2i using AKAIO would be the best
    ezvi .... they still update
    DSTTi... since they release the card till now no update
    R4i.. not sure
    hyper R4i... brought to you by some of the old members and so far is ok but stay away since the firmware is still buggy
    itouch2.. if you like itouch

    you can wait for
    m3 dsi compatible! is coming soon

    i don't know how much truth there is in the claim that some of the old R4 team members are involved, but it's still another AK2i clone.

    bollocks,
    yes for r4i
    no for hyper r4i, AKAIO doesn't boot on it [​IMG]
    nevertheless, we will know how good or sucky this hyper r4i can be

    LOL

    Maybe you could try AK2i & itouch2
    since AK2i it keeps updating kernel and it can perfertly work with DSi
    itouch2 is M3's first DSi compatible flash card , it may not be the quickest card but it functions in a reliable manner.

    Dude, why do people insist on buying cloned products? Get an R4i and when you have issues, none of us will help you.

    The thing which always gets me is that when people ask about the R4i, I want to say to them: WHICH ONE???!!!

    For the OP and those who may not realize, there are at least 6 and, on the surface, they are only distinguishable by their website URL and the order in which the name includes the modifiers "Upgrade", "SDHC" and "Revolution". (Not to mention "Gold", "Super" and "Hyper")

    Admittedly, at the hardware level, the problem is probably a bit simpler as several of them are probably just clones of each other and are interchangeable, but that can't be said for all of them.

    So, one might recommend the R4i Upgrade Revolution SDHC, but only with the R4i Super SDHC Revolution firmware. [​IMG]

    Don't get any kind of R4. If you want a cheap solution then get an iTouch2, but now when you think about it, AK2i costs cheaper in some shops than the iTouch2 [​IMG]
