    Unhappy Problems with R4i SDHC Upgrade Revolution v1.4 For DS

    I really hope someone can shed some light on this becuase its driving me up the wall.
    I own 2x Cyclods cards and their ace, but my friend bought an R4i SDHC Upgrade revolution (red box) v1.4 for their DSLite, now, the firmware i got contained 3 folders and 1 .dat file. When u run these the DSLite sits on loading.
    After putting _DS_menu.sys and .dat files the R4 boots.

    1. Are these the right files for this card for a DSLite?
    2. Can they be altered in any way?
    3. I cant for the life of me change the skin (it comes with 6). Does anyone know how to change it?. Even if i delete the skins folder, the default (skin1) still loads, so its embedded somewhere.
    4. When i get an updated firmware, the firmware version stays the same!.
    5. When u go into the games menu, its all text, surely that cant be right, can it ?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    TIA

    you might want to look at some of the other posts in this section because some other people have asked similar questions about that card and firmware upgrades.

    sorry I couldn't help more but I have an acekard 2i and really don't know about that specific card but there are a lot of posts about it in here.

    I am aware that there may be up to 60 clones of the R4. I managed to get an answer about skins from the makers, they said you cannot change the skins on a R4i 1.4 revolution upgrade on a DSLite but u can if u have a DSi even tho the card is compataible with all DS's. I maybe should have got an R4 rather than an R4i.

    have you checked that the files you supposedly delete or alter have actually changed, i have had issues with faulty cards in the past that show the files have changed but when you remove the mem card from the pc and put it back in nothing has changed and it couldn't be deleted either.

    This was also sorted mate, again that many clones and websites for each card, my cards firmware came from r4isdhc.com

    Please note no space between the i and shdc like other websites.

    It might be worth going to the website and reading the blog posts maybe even try posting yourself, they usually get answered by the admin, it looks like cheat codes, wallpapers etc are for the DSi only. And yeah my card didnt come with instruction as well. I should have stuck to Cylcods which ive purchased b4.

    you can actually change the skins on any ds/R4 card, you need to locate the BMP files in the sys folder iirc and replace them with the new skin files of the same name.
    The last R4i-sdhc cards i bought came with the website printed on the box, but be aware i have had bad D/L's of firmware which caused no end of problems too.
    Was using R4-sdhc cards then moved to R4i-sdhc cards as these work with both ds and dsi, then recently bought some R4i-golds, didnt like these so have gone back to R4i-sdhc . All bought from dealextreme
