    Just bought a DSi Xl off ebay (hasn't arrived yet), so i don't know the firmware version. Assuming it's on the latest version, which card should i buy? Looked at all the stickies, Like the look of both the Acekard 2i and the R4i gold. Would both of these work with the latest firmware? If not, is there a way to downgrade the firmware? PLUS, where can i buy from in the UK? Help would be much appreciated!

    The acekard will not work on the latest DSi firmware, so go for the R4i.

    http://www.cheapr4i.com/r4i-gold-3ds-for-3ds-3ds-xl-v45010-and-dsi-v145-p-184.html

    I've linked you to a reliable seller which i've used more than once, and also the correct R4i, if you use em use the code ilove3ds for a 10% discount.

    2.We will test it before ship to you,100% works your DSi or 3DS.

    I would ask them before purchasing if you haven't any means to update it yourself.

    Uh.. update? Looking around the forum, I've seen a few things about updating, most notably something to do with having an original ds to download something to, is that it? Cause i do actually have an original ds somewhere. Sorry for being such a noob, thanks for helping :)

    Yes you will need a DS console that the cart works on to be able to update it, so e-mail them first to ask if the R4i works on the latest DSi firmware.
