    I know that R4i SDHC is a ridiculously retarded flash-cart and of course I wouldn't buy that crap... but my cousin did... And he updated his DSi to the 1.4E firmware. I was wondering if there is any possible solution. I remember seeing a post in GBAtemp with a solution, I searched it but I couldn't find anything :/ ... Thanks in advance

    well actually im not sure because yesterday i was at the markets in chinatown and they were selling r4i gold so i thought to myself i wonder if it will work in 1.4 so i asked the lady if i could have a go on my ds and she asked if it was 1.4 i said yes and the she formatted the card and put some sort of patch on it then put all the system files back on and it worked and came up as some olympic game and it worked fine

    Quoting me from other threads only causes confusion. No, that is not a 1.4 fix. It allows the old pre-1.4 R4i SDHC carts to play newer games like Mario & Luigi 3 and Hingdom Hearts on 1.3 or lower DSi's, or any DS phat or lite. It does not allow you to bypass 1.4. If he's already on 1.4, then he needs to buy a new flashcart that can be updated without using the DSi, like M3i Zero.

    It's not a rediculously retarded cart. Mine works like a dream, and still plays everything.

    With the rediculously retarded cart I ment that it is made by a retarded team that doesn't know english and is a cheap clone...

    They're based in China. How much Chinese do you speak? Then you have no room to talk.

    If it were an exceptionally cheap clone, there probably wouldn't be other companies making fake versions of it. It's quite functional and has great compatability. People bashing on things and having no actual reasoning for doing so got old a long time ago.

    If that offended you, then I don't know what to tell you. I could've made it far worse. There is entirely too much unwarranted whining on GBAtemp. Don't blame the company that made it, blame your cousin for buying it, or for updating to 1.4.

    Oh sorry mister you-are-the-best... If you consider my reaction whining-ish then don't even bother to reply. Go to a forum where everyone knows everything and become their Admin.

    I used the rfi sdhc on version 1.4 and that card worked fine for me. it is the one that comes in the red box. I like it more then the one that comes in the gold box just go to the web sit and follow the direction on the web site.

    I had good luck with a company called Gameplayfun.com. They had a special on the r4i sdhc card which was the cheapest I could fine. They gave me free shipping too! They have lots of the other cards commonly looked for too. What I actually like best about this company is that they are located in the USA. I am in New Mexico so I like this about them. Anyway I hope this helps anyone out there in search of a reliable company.

    I think you'll find the Red Box edition is modified to work with 1.4, but it won't be updatable if there's another firmware block in the future. Just go with something updatable.
