    Bad news I guess. Owners of the old R4i-SDHC will have to buy a new cart for 1.4.

    Old carts can have their kernel updated, but not the bootloader. For that you will have to buy a new R4i 1.4 compatible.

    Seems they are ready with the new card. See here:
    http://www.r4isdhc.com/indexe.asp.htm

    Quote from the site:
    R4I SDHC(red) is a classical brand,which has mature technical and perfectly supports 1.4ver. The multi-skin and multi-country language can be choose freely in the NDSI console. It has the strength of immediate archive and automatic reset.It is also totally compatible with the newest NDS games.please rest assured to purchase and use.

    As could be expected there is no word of an update for old cards tho [​IMG]

    On their other web site http://www.r4i-sdhc.com/indexe.asp they still write:
    Notice : All the DSi flash card just can work on DSi ver1.3 or under version in currently !( DSi has blocked the ability of flash carts to currently run on DSi consoles when it upgrade to Ver1.4. Pls be careful before to upgrade the DSi to ver 1.4) We are try our best to settle now !

    I'm afraid owners of an "old" r4i sdhc are screwed.

    What i can't get my head around is why do people still refer to R4 clones as their flashcards

    This is a DSTT clone, not an R4 clone.

    I used flashcards when I was 5 to practice math problems.

    My thoughts EXACTLY!! I am also going to buy a AK2i if there is no update. I just sent them an email, hopefuly theyll respond manually not with a automatic message.

    Well, I'm not surprised that a new card would be necessary, but I'm hoping that the current cards continue to be supported as the non-DSi R4-SDHCs are. I am not as quick to accept the R4iSDHC.com as an official site; as looking up the domain information for the two sites, they don't match up, and the contact info for r4isdhc.com include fake email addresses.

    then you better not upgrade your firmware in future
    i hope the evil N / clueless S won't force upgrade like what they are doing with Wii/PSP
    however, i am not sure can this idea being apply on DS [​IMG]

    The update for the old cards will be released next week on their website.
