    Okay, so I was checking to see what the current firmware on my DSi was so I could update my R4i's firmware accordingly. I did this while being distracted, which I really shouldn't have done, and accidentally clicked the update button, and confirmed it.

    I checked the forum already, and I checked the site listed on my cart, but I haven't found any firmware/kernel updates for my cart that work. When I try starting my cart from my DSi, it tells me there was an error and to turn off the DSi. It doesn't even load up the menu of the cart to choose anything.

    The site listed on the cart is: www.r4i.cn

    I've downloaded the newest version from that site, but it doesn't work with the newest DSi firmware. Is there another kernel that will work with my cart, or is there a way to downgrade the DSi's firmware to the most recent version of it?

    I'm begging for some help with this, because my DS Lite's hing is broken, and it is impossible to actually play anything on it until I've gotten it fixed. Thank you all for any and all answers.

    One's inner self
    Kernel doesnt control Console compatibility
    only the firmware does
    and this card stopped releasing Firmware a while ago
    and no other card firmware wont work on anyone elses before you ask

    no you downgrade a DSi because the DSi isnt hacked

    you need to buy a new cart
    or get that DSLite fixed

    Thank you. I'll look into getting the DSLite fixed sooner, or at least look for a new cart. Any suggestions on ones that still work with this new DSi Firmware?

    R4i 3DS Gold is great on the DSi, and it's about $20 anywhere you go.
