    There
    No,Wood only works on 1:1 R4 clones,or the original,meaning no GOLD, ULTRA, II,III,SDHC,etc.

    I suggest if you're cheap,buy AK2i,if you got the $$,SCDS2.

    Oh ok, thank you. I already have a AK2i. I think about a SCDS2 then.

    Wait wat.

    You already have an Acekard2i, but you want an R4?
    If that is for the Wood firmware, have you looked into AKAIO?

    R4DS for $6 is a bargain.
    Use wood on it.
    But if you are willing to pay more get an Acekard or SuperCardDS2

    Yeah, I'm using AKAIO since the beginning and I'm generally happy with it. But I've noticed that the Wood firmware had much faster updates in the last months. So I thought I could use my AK2i still as my maincard and a R4 with Wood for some games where there is no AKAIO fix (yet).

    Elsewhere.
    I suggest not getting any type of R4 whatsoever unless you are dying to have WoodR4, then get the R4DS, but as stated above, it only works on the Phat/Lite DS'.

    If you have an AK2i, just wait for AKAIO 1.8.0 to come out. It's rumored to be near a release, though don't quote me on that.

    And as for SCDSTwo, then why would you want an R4 if you were thinking about that?

    Yeah, now I'm thinking about the SCDSTwo after realizing that R4s with Wood wont work on my DSi.
