I have one of the first R4 carts and last few months have been having increasing difficulty getting newer games to work like sega all star racing. I tried all the patches, changing to dstt, ysmenu firmware and still no luck. Until today, I stumbled upon a firmware called Wood R4 and it has 99.8% compatibility and i can confirm that the game mentioned above and the likes of Sonic collection work on this firmware without patches. R4 compatibility list - Scorpei.com - Wiki
That woodR4 firmware was just released not too long ago, maybe they'll keep it updated for you, so you don't need to get a new flashcart.
I own 2 CycloDS's, M3DS Real, and an AK 2i, and I need a new one for my DSi XL, so I'm waiting for that new supercard to come out.
Cheers Pob, gonna try this tomorrow. Got a games list from the kids and I think I might need this FW for some of them.
Works flawlessly so far. Many thanks for the head-up on this.

I have an R4i SDHC v1.4 card, and I'm having some problems with it (long loading times, random crashes while in the firmware launching a game). Is this compatible with my card or not, and is it likely a new firmware would fix this issue?
Edit: Oh and if so, should I get Wood R4 or Wood R.P.G? What's the difference? :S
Edit#2: Also; what does SDHC stand for and mean, and where can I grab some cool skins for my firmware?
