Uh don't listen to Typhlosion, if you have the R4i SDHC (redbox) then all you need to do is download the updated software, that's ALREADY available after you update your DSi. I'm using one right now.

There's a great tutorial to set it up on http://www.dscardworld.com with pictures and links to all the official software on their support page. And I noticed they made a video about a freeze problem but they show you how to set it up http://www.youtube.com/watch?

My dsi is ver 1.43e and i have a r4i-sdhc card and an error comes up ....an error has occurred. press and hold the power button to turn the system off


Hi Talbca,

It's possible that somebody has updated the DSi console to the latest 1.4.3 firmware. A lot of flash cards, especially fake ones, no longer work on the 1.4.3 firmware. Always make sure the card does work before any console upgrade or this can happen. :-(

If you're 100% sure you have a genuine R4i card (it will show r4i-sdhc.com, with the hyphen [r4isdhc.com is fake] on the box or the card if it's genuine), then try the YouTube video attached to this post. Hopefully that will fix the issue, remember you need an older DSi (pre-1.4.3) or DS Lite to apply the update.

You'd probably have to buy a new DS card to back up your games on - if you're US based I'd recommend DSCardWorld.com but if you're Europe based then NDS-Gear.com is the way to go. Both of these places only sell genuine cards and are authorised resellers fo popular models like the Acekard 2i, Supercard DSTWO and Cyclo DS iEvolution.

Please upvote my answer if I've been helpful, and good luck!

I upgrade my dsi to 1.4.1 and i cant plsy my r4i somebody help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Depending on the version of your r4i card, download the latest firmware here (http://www.r4i-sdhc.com/downloade.asp) and install it over the existing files. This should allow you to run it on the newest dsi firmware. In the future, do not upgrade your dsi unless you are absolutely sure that your r4i will continue to function.

When i put my r4i card into my console the menu screen says star wars lethal alliance. when i press this to start my card up the screen just remains white, is this a fault or do i need to install it some...


A normal R4i card should indeed say Star Wars Lethal Alliance so that's fine. However it sounds like you may have updated your DSi to the newest 1.4.1 firmware which blocks some cards.

You should consider buying an Acekard 2i or an EZFlash Vi card from nds-gear.com or dscardworld.com - they only stock genuine cards and those two kinds of cards will work on the newest Nintendo firmware.

Good luck!

R4i Card


Well when you update it to 1.4a it blocks it because that version blocks r4i cards or any kind of firmware, people have had this problem before so look at the other questions before answering another one and use 'GOOGLE!'

Up dated my settings on my DSi with my R4i card in the machine know it will not work can you help solve my problem


Hello,

Which R4i you have will determine what you can do. If you have the R4i Gold, then I'm sorry to tell you, there's no workaround for DSi 1.4. If you have R4i SDHC (redbox) then you can get the latest firmware to make it work again. The fix is easy, no flashing or danger to your card or DSi.

There's a great tutorial to set it up on http://www.dscardworld.com with pictures and links to all the official software on their support page.



If you need to upgrade to a DSi v1.4 compatible card you can get a genuine cards there too. All their DSi compatible cards are clearly labeled. I managed to find this site after I got burned at a few others. Loved having my emails responded to because I had loads of questions, and they were quick to ship it.

Best of luck!

I still get error message with Hyper R4i


Go to http://www.hyper4i.com/

Download there the wright kernel and the newest firmware for your hyper R4i.

Delete on the memory card, downlisted folders and files.

Folders:
_system_
moonshl2
SSTATE
Files:
_DS_MENU.dat
_DS_MSHL.nds
HOW TO USE.txt

Put the new kernel files from the archive to the memory card and from the other archive de nds rom that contains the new firmware.
Boot using the new kernel and run first the new firmware rom, turn off the ds when it tells you to do so, this makes the Hyper R4i working on DSi's with firmware version v1.4.

Delete the firmware rom from your memory card because you won't need it anymore.

The Hyper R4i should now work as it should.

Note that the SAVE folder contains your safed games, if there are still problems, try to delete this folder to.

Succes.
