Recommend a supplier for an R4i Gold Revolution Card

Who do you recommend as a supplier/retailer for a non fake card? The card I purchased looks like the real thing in the ad but when it arrived it was a fake.

I had a great experience with http://www.dscardworld.com I must have sent them about 6 emails even before I bought a card from them, and they answered them all within hours. All their cards are genuine, and the shipping was fast. US based shipping and support I believe. So you don't have to wait 4 weeks for it to get to you from China.

Best of luck!

Why does my r4 card need to be back dated to work


The older R4i cards used to need to roll back the date because of a firmware bug, but if you download the newest kernels this problem's now been fixed.

If you have a fake R4i card though, it's quite likely that you won't be able to fix this problem permanently. There are hundreds of fakes on the market so this wouldn't be too surprising.

In the future, if you're looking for genuine card suppliers, if you're US/Canada based I'd recommend DSCardWorld.com and if you're UK/Europe based I'd recommend NDS-Gear.com.

Good luck! :-)

Heya,

It sounds like you've connected via WiFi and Once your DSi console has been updated to v1.4.3 firmware it cannot then be downgraded. If you are using a genuine R4i 3DS card (check on the r4dsrevolutioncards.com website by the way, they do a pretty good guide on the different types of genuine / fake cards. Also see r4dsrevolutioncards.com, they're pretty useful for R4i card info) then you should be able to update the firmware of the R4i card through the "Settings" menu of the R4i. You need to do this on a 1.4.2-or-below DSi console, or a DS Lite though.

NintendoDSCards.com has an info page and a video to show you how to update a legit R4i card (NOT fakes) - click here to visit the 1.4.3 R4i Update page.

If you're using a fake card (such as the R4i Gold, R4i Ultra etc.) then it's quite likely the card simply isn't supported and you'd need to get a new one. Your best bet is to buy an authentic card and simply buy something decent that's upgradable. DS cards unfortunately don't last forever, and teams eventually stop supporting the cards - but the fake ones are terrible at this to be honest!

I personally shop with dscardworld (www.dscardworld.com) and they're great, but that's because I live in the US. I used to live in Sweden and if you are in Europe then nds-gear (nds-gear.com) are just better if you live outside of the US/Canada in my opinion, so pick depending on where you live. Both of those shops are authentic retailers of R4i, Acekard and Supercard by the way (probably others too but those are the ones I've used).

If you're getting a card for a 3DS / DSi console I'd recommend a Supercard DSTWO since it's pretty much just awesome and you can play Gameboy Advance games as well on it. But if you just need a basic card or you're using it on a DS Lite / DS, I'd get an Acekard 2i. Up to you really, I think both of them also stock the genuine R4i's but they seem to be going out of fashion these days.

Hope I've helped, good luck!

I'm afraid the R4i Gold card is a fake, and if you've updated your console to the latest 1.4.2 or 1.4.3 firmwares it's unlikely to work.

A lot of the fakes will indeed work when you buy them but as soon as you update your console they'll stop working.
