I have a r4i gold in my current ds xl. My friend is wanting to buy her grandson the 2ds model that dosent have the hinges. Would the same r4 work in it as well or will whatever firmware it comes with determine if it will work or not?

Check model/fw and card compatibility

Edit:

Or...

No, it won't brick it. If it's blocked by the firmware the console won't even recognize it.
It will recognize it but error when you try to boot it.

There are a bunch of R4i Gold carts that are all different, so you'll have to be more specific. The one you want (since it's one of the best ones on the market) is the r4ids.cn R4i Gold which will work if it's updated to the latest firmware. Older versions of the cart had to have a trace cut on the board after the firmware upgrade is performed though.

Oh ok. I will find out when i go home and get it. Thank you for the detailed info. I will post which r4 I have soon. I will tell her to get the r4ids though. She just picked it up and the firmware on it is 11.4.0-37U

Do you have a link to the exact card that you have? You probably don't have to worry about the update depending on which one you have. as The Real Jdbye said,

they are fucking you over m8, that thing has a timebomb, also, you cant contact R4, because there is no R4 company

Here is the card i have but she needs one too. When i say i contacted r4 i contacted [email protected] from the website r43ds.org. I can only find a r4i 3ds without the RTS like mine has.

buy one like the one you have, that email account is trying to get you to but one of their damned timebomed cards, look at the full list of cards on that page that kiiwii linked to, one of the timebomed cards is the one they are trying to get you to buy.
dont trust anyone that tells you that a card with an year written on it is fine, those are there so that they can ask you what model you have a deny you support and if you asked them why it suddenly stopped working they can tell you to just buy another one

Why would you email them when they're not affiliated with the site on your card? Also, you can get an RTS from nds-card.

Sorry, I have been out of this for years. I have had my card for a long time. I was just trying to help a friend out. Thanks for the clarification.

That's because you're contacting the owners of a different R4 clone team. Of course they are going to want you to buy their shitty cart.
This is the cart you have, and straight from GBAtemp's sponsor: http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149
But better yet, this cart is the same but has built in ntrboot functionality so you can CFW the 2DS easily: http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=575

Since the price is the same I would suggest the bottom one.

There's nothing wrong with you getting the card you already have. Definitely get that card as it's proven to work and you can use it for NTRboot if you ever want to do that.
I can confirm that your card DOES work with 2ds, o3ds, n2dsXL all with 11.6. i've tried all those with mine.

Edit: The 3ds plus linked above is definitely a good choice seeing as how it's the same price but added functionality for a built in cfw entrypoint option.

there is an new version of that card at the same price, why pay for the one with less functionality?
this one i mean http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=575

That's where you get your kernel from. Under downloads. It's on the site and it's verified as the legitimate card.
Clones will have a different website on it, that's how most people know it's not the real version.
