    Ok, so since I have a 3DS now, I've updated my DSi to 1.4.3E so I can do the System Transfer thing.
    Because of this, my DSi can't take my R4i thanks to the piracy blocking.
    My R4i is R4i SDHC 1.4.1, I've downloaded the update from here http://r4i-sdhc.com/downloade.asp (1.4.6), but it still isn't working.
    Any ideas?

    You need to run the update on the cart.

    So you need to use the card in a 3/DS/i/Lite console that can run the card, in order to run the update.

    Tried that. It told me I needed to re-format. I re-formatted it, put all my games etc back on and it still told me the same thing...

    Try running the update on a DS/DSl or a DSi that hasn't been updated to 1.4.3. The kernel for the R4i-SDHC is at 1.46b (not 1.4.6) but you still need to run the update function on the r4i-sdhc on a DS/DSl or unupdated DSi. You can try running it on the 3DS but that can sometimes cause issues with the cart.

    It only works on my DS Lite. I re-formatted it, put all my games etc back on and it still told me I needed re-format...

    Format your card with Panasonic SD formatter and only place the kernel on your SDHC card and run the update on a DSl. This should work however there are some 1.4.1 carts (the early ones) that are unflashable and unfortunately if you own one of these there is nothing you can do.
