As we know that R4i sdhc and R4i sdhc 3ds flashcard are both from R4i sdhc team, the official site of them is r4i-sdhc.com. Actually i dont know why they released two different cards, r4i sdhc is for DS/DSi and R4i sdhc 3ds is for DS/DSi/3DS. In my opibion, they should have stopped producing r4i sdhc, because R4i sdhc 3ds is working on all versions of the console, there is no need to release another similar flashcard to mislead users. Anyway, i will talk sth about these two cards in this post.
To be honest, the r4i sdhc card is an old flashcard with long(compared to other flashcards) history, and it is also a popular flashcard in the flashcard community. Now it can work on the latest DSi firmware V1.43 and 3DS firmware V2.1.0-4, it is a pre-update flashcard out of box. so when you receive the flashcard, just download the latest firmware and copy the files in your SD card, very easy flashcard.
About the features, r4i sdhc flashcards have the basic features, including play DS games, play homebrew, NoPass Functionality, cheat support, soft reset, DLD support. Multi-save handling, wifi download.
let’s talk about them one by one
The DS game compatibility of R4i sdhc is very good, nearly 95%, means you use this flashcard play nearly all the DS games, only a few games have problems.
The Homebrew compatibility of R4i sdhc is normal, nearly 80%, in my experience, the homebrew compatility of this flashcard is not very good. need to do more tests about it.
Nopass function is a basic feature of all the flashcards, the function allows you to boot slot 2 flashcarts when used in a Nintendo DS or Nintendo DS Lite, so this function is no problem to r4i sdhc.
Cheat support of this flashcard is not very good. Choosing a game and go to the cheat tab and find the cheat options. actually this feature on r4i sdhc is not very good either, some cheat options really dont work.
In a word, R4i sdhc and r4i sdhc 3ds flashcards are really easy cards for guys who just want to get a easy and simple lashcard. if you dont care about the extra features, this card is a good choose.
