ive just checked r4 homepage http://www.r4i-sdhc.hk/indexe.asp and it seems there hasnt been any update on the latest firmware.
maybe they've stopped?

can anyone recommend a priced = value card? because ive only used R4 in the past.
now im looking to get one for a DSI

those r4-sdhc.hk are not very good, not updatable i think

better use upgradable cards like those

http://www.ndslstore.com/product_info.p ... cts_id=328

and ready to go for firmware 1.45 and 3ds 4.5

i have one myself and games load ultra fast, 5 times fastest than others r4i, even acekard
So let me get this straight, with the R4i White 4.5.0-10 from http://www.ndslstore.com, you can play DS backups on your 3DS? I like how they're in Quebec too... yay no duty!

EDIT: Is 3DS copy protection just too good? Or has no one bothered cracking it yet?

yes you can play DS, DSI game on 3DS, but the 3DS games are not playable yet on any cards

will these cards work on a 3DS XL? is there a good site/forum that will provide step by step information on how to obtain one of these cards and get it working to play DS/DSI backups?

anything named R4 is a fake/rip off from another cart, R4 dropped out in 2008 but companies rip their name and other cart os's. Your best bet is going for a DSTWO supercard

This.

You could also get a Acekard 2i, it's basically a cheaper alternative to the DSTWO Card.

acekard? They go down now... cannot even run 1.45 or 3ds 4.5, for the price its not worth it anymore until they update.

and yes some r4 are crap but some are super, every one know that all chinese steal the name r4, some still offer better support than acekard anyway.

which cards can play 1.45? 2 of the ''fake rip off'' r4 and dstwo. thats about it!

yes dstwo are the best but also the most expensive, for an adult in the long run dstwo is a good choice IMO

It's also fascinating how 2 kids from different parents looked identical and both played the role of baby michelle on full house and now 20 some years later, they still look identical.

Bypass security and protection to play "backups" of their games.
