    it's either DSTwo or R4i Gold 3DS. All others imo aren't as good. r4i Gold 3DS is like the cheaper one, but best quality of the cheap DS flash carts.

    The last known version of the DSi is 1.4.5 or as it is listed in the description on that page DSi v1.45, same thing. So yes it is supported. If you don't plan to use that website, you better be reading what version it supports, some sites still sit on old stock that no longer work.

    R4 clones will have the 3DS version listed that the cart supports. If your 3DS has a firmware version of higher than what is listed that the R4 has listed, you should be looking for a different R4 clone to buy. If there is no listed version support by the R4 clone, it is likely a VERY old version that is no longer supported.


    In general, the majority of R4 clones don't get updates. You don't update your R4 clone, you buy a new R4 clone if you end up updating your 3DS/XL/LL/2DS. They are ultra cheap for a reason, they don't have updateable firmware.

    what you just said makes no sense to me... I have a dsi xl on 1.4.5 not a 3ds. Do you know a site where they would have an r4 updated to 1.4.5?
    and also i looked on nds-card and it says this, but then it says only up to 1.44 but on the r4 site it has an update for 1.4.5
    We will update its latest kernel or firmware to support 3DS V9.4.0-21U/E/J before shipping it out(from 2014-3-3).-

    migles already gave you a link to one. If you don't want to buy from china, below is to a vendor that is alot closer.

    here is another one:
    http://www.modchipsdirect.com/r4i-3ds-r4ds-wood.html

    ----

    Should have seen your account is only recent, R4 clones get 1 or 2 updates then get dropped and you have to buy a new one if your a update handheld all the time. Since you just need it for a DSi you don't need to worry about it as much.

    vouch for what? it's customer service?, never had to use the customer service to really comment. I had no problems with them so far, if that is what you mean.

    I have order a Sky3DS, the R4i and a xenoGC from them and got them all within a week.

    If you don't have a microSD to use already, getting one with the R4 isn't going to hurt you all that much.

    All slot1 flashcarts use microSD slots.
