    i updated my dsi from 1.3 to 1.4.1u, now after i update my r4i pocket does not work, when i looked up the site, it says there is a 1.05 update, but does not link anywhere,
    is there a way of making it work by putting other r4 kernels?

    what other kernel could i put on my r4ipocket to make it work with dsi firmwarw 1.4.1u?

    pls help

    You need to update it using the 1.4.1 update. It's usually a .nds file.

    Simply replacing a few files on your SD card doesn't work, unless you're running a SCDS2.

    I recommend ditching your R4 considering it's a clone and buying either an AceKard or a SuperCard DS2.

    Your card is not updatable . It'll never work with that DSi again. Just get an Acekard 2i, it is updatable, even if nintendo decides to release another firmware for the DSi.

    This is something separate from the "firmware" you usually talk about, with the system files and shit. This is a totally different concept. Your cart's bootloader is not updatable, IT WILL NEVER WORK ON THAT DSi AGAIN.

    Shoptemp sells carts that CAN be updated (such as the DSTwo and Acekard 2i), and has free worldwide shipping.

    Yeah, as stated, simply putting another cards data on your R4 is impossible. Otherwise, people wouldn't be forced to buy new R4's.

    As recommended, grab a Acekard 2i. It's cheap [you can easily bring in beer bottles and pop bottles and pay for it], and it's probably the best card second only to the DSTWO. DStwo is more expensive, but has A LOT more added features.

    Ditch the R4 brand for the DSi's, unless it's an original R4 that works with wood.
