    ^Topic.

    I was just wondering since I have the (U) version of MKDS, and on the review from this site, it said the download and play doesn't work, but I was wondering if the firmware updates have fixed it, or if there are other versions that work (but have to be in English).

    What is the point of flashing? Doesn't it do the same thing as the R4 basically?

    There are some additional features. Firmware recovery, optionally removing the health screen, etc.

    Apparently it removes RSA encryption to allow download play off any card, but supposedly it doesn't work too well on R4.

    Ok, I got another question that kind of relates to this one.

    I have a Nintendo USB Wifi adapter, will I be able to play online with the R4?

    Online should work fine, it's the local download play that doesn't work on all games with an R4. Many other cards have this issue too, not just R4.

    yes, Just flash both DS's. Then you never have problems with download play again.
    i own two DS's (Phat + R4 and Lite + EZ4lite), works like a charm. plus i also used to use the method with old GBA flashcarts.

    Okay I've just checked for myself.

    My sisters unflashed DSL (trying to convince her to flash it >_>) broadcasting Mario Kart, NSMB and Metroid to my flashed DSL = not working.

    I'll try again when I've flashed hers.

    If it doesn't work to flashed DSs, you've overtrimmed your ROM. Or gotten a bad dump/repack.

    I tried it with the clean rom and with my trimmed one (using DS-X manager). Neither of them worked. It's the R4. I used my M3 Lite and Metroid was able to connect and start

    But, the cyclods is said to have REAL 100% download play.
    Is it posible then that the r4 gets a simmular firmware upgrade?

    If this limitation is caused by something on the hardware, then no, it'll never work.

    G6DS has improved their download play in a recent OS update (now supports Mario Kart!)
