    This is only for the 3DS version of the cart, not the regular one!

    This sucks!

    It's really disappointing they release the 3DS version fix first when the card still works fine on the system. They should have addressed the DSi only card first. Those customers have no recourse if they have already updated (or are forced to avoid the DSi Shop).

    You guys are expecting too much from a clone company.
    I hope they do release a fix because I have no plans to buy their 3DS cart.

    I know it, I should have buy the R4i from the COM-Team.
    I updated to 1.4.2 and borrowed a NDSL from a friend, but after
    the card check it says no need to update. Then in the forum it says that it is only for the 3DS.

    I don't think they will public an update for old R4i Gold.

    I have R4i Gold from CN.

    Should I update my DSI and use the latest patch? Or is it only for new 3DS cart?
    The website is confusing:
    Doesn't say 3DS????

    But apparently it is for the r4igold 3ds...not the r4igold. I have checked the site and they specifically state (now) its for the 3ds version.

    Call me the idiot if they don't release an update for their original version cause I bought the bs too.

    Hook, line and sinker on the strength of wood cause I used it prior on a dslite/akrpg... shame he cannot flex his might and pull support for his firmware now. They don't deserve ywg's wood firmware if this is the way they wanna run with it.

    I'm writing this like I already know they will be f-ing us off,

    i'm f-in disgusted preemptively.

    I have 5 more R4iGold carts coming tomorrow. If I wouldve known, I would have bought the 3DS version. Shame.

    I also switched from other R4 carts because of this site and WOOD compatibility with the R4iGold.

    I guess we will just have to wait and see?

    Also I have heard that the Ds-Shop have freebies now, encouraging the update!

    In short: You must buy a 3DS version, or die.

    This sucks indeed.

    This is why you should stay away from clones.
    without WOOD this cart would just be another shitty clone

    Acekards is a better investment if you want a good budget cart

    Acekards, is there a specific one? Or are there clones or older versions I should stay away from?
    I will order Acekards on my next purchase.

    I have also sent a email to r4ids.cn


    I have noticed that the Regular R4i-Gold Card has been removed from the Products page, they are only advertising the 3DS card.
    Do you think its the same card, they just changed the name?
    Does my regular R4i-Gold work on a 3DS with older FW? I only have XL's, so I can't test, but the site I bought from stated they worked on all DS systems, including 3DS.

    I don't want to go off topic, but the acekard you'll want to get is the acekard 2i
    there's acekard R.P.G and the acekard 2.1, Acekard R.P.G is discontinued, and I'm not sure if the acekard 2.1 is still in production or not

    and no, the regular r4i gold will not work on the 3ds, you'll have to buy their new version (r4i gold 3ds) if you want to play it on a 3ds

    No they are not. The build quality on them leaves plenty to be desired and they do not run wood firmwares.
    Yeah they are a cheap alt. (emphasis on "cheap" cause I would rather spend more and not buy one). Ok you will get decent builds every now and then but I'm sick of hearing about them tbh... they get more credit than they deserve.
    I've had 4 i's and 2.1... absolute shi* I think.

    But clone team action... wtf!?!
    *goes off to pray r4ids.cn team not releasing 1.42 update for the non-3ds r4igold was just a bad dream*

    I agree, acekard do have shitty build, but akaio is superior to wood and the acekard team is way more reliable than some clone team

    Well, Im trying to stay on topic, and I want the BEST alternative to R4i-Gold, What is the hands down best cards with 100% upgradable to new FW's track record. I hate buying a new card everytime a new FW comes out.
