    That particular version will, but the one's without the 1.4 on the box won't and can't be upgraded. I wouldn't buy that cart though. When it went from 1.3 to 1.4 people were forced to replace their cards. There's no guarantee that you'll actually be able to upgrade the cart if 1.5 blocks it. Get an AK2i instead. They're not much more and about 100x better.

    Um... Pretty much any card that's name consists of a letter and a number is a cheap, made-in-china clone. For example: R4, R4 SDHC, R41 Gold, R4-III, N5, R6, M3. Do yourself and get an AceKard 2i from http://www.consolesource.com/ecomm/catalog...nit-p-2864.html . It's only $24.95 + shipping - IIRC, ~$5 - and I can personaly guarentee that, once the firmware update is installed, it works great on 1.4 - though I can't guerentee that it comes with the update pre-installed, you might want to have a pre-1.3 DSi or DS/DS Lite available to update it. They also have MUCH better support than all of those cruddy R4 clones.

    24 bucks for an AK2i! That's insane! Get it from DX, it's about half the price.

    Wow... In the time it took me to type that post, lots of people recommended against the cheap R4 clone! [​IMG]

    thats pretty flawed logic
    M3i zero / M3 real is one of the best cards on the market right now
    cant say the same about the rest however...

    I have this card and it is updated (one of few). I can even run DSTT 1.17a12 raw or with YSMenu as a secondary firmware. It's not bad for a clone.

    Great input everyone, No worries I know its a cheap R4, I know there are way better cards, just exploring my options, like to try out different cards.
    Just as long as it does work on the 1.4, not worried about 1.5.

    It seems to have good support for newer games

    I had the original r4, I thought, till I read here that the r4ds had a spring thing... mine didn't so it must have been a r4 clone... it wasn't the sdhc variety either... anyways, my DS and r4 got stolen recently, so if I were to get a dsi, dsi xl, I'd most likely need a new flashcart for pirated games.

    acecard2i seems to have everyone's support here on gbatemp.net, so I might get that one, IF I get a new ds replacement.

    Not all clones are bad. If you want to take the "its a clone approach" let's throw out 95% of our PC's as they're IBM clones. Unless you've tried the darned thing don't talk smack. It's like never tasting chocolate, and calling it nasty.

    @ LonerGoth - The card in the OP can work with all current DSi firmwares (1.4 is current at the time of this post), and all hardware (NDS, NDSlite, NDSi, and NDS LL/XL).

    Is the one you just mentioned this ez5? ( I don't know what OP meant!)

    (as a side note when I read OP I thought about anime openings....)

    hmm, thanks, I'll remember that. Thanks for confirming that r4 sdhc works with firmware 1.4 as well.
