carrotman42 (author)2009-06-06

It's not letting me download the app can you upload on this?

Allowance10 (author)2009-06-05

Word of warning... If you get the R4 make sure you are ready to search for a ton of files on the internet. I am a huge fan of R4 but it is hard to get the files. Also the R4 sometimes doesn't work. You just have to take it in and out of the DS until it works. Great Instructable!!!!

objection! (author)2009-05-18

AH-HEM! I need an iPhone, thank you very much. I don't need more negative comments about the 3G, thanks. GRRR.... Good concept though.

dodo91 (author)2009-04-20

The cyclo ds is supposed to be the best for like Nintendo hacks (although it is more expensive than all others)

Kiteman (author)2008-01-24

#1 son has a "games and music" card for his DSlite. It has a micro SD card to carry the information. Will that do the same thing as the R4?

dsman195276 (author)Kiteman2008-01-24

no. games and music is different. a R4 it needed.

Epeoples (author)dsman1952762008-11-17

so can you use a regular sd card?

dsman195276 (author)Epeoples2008-11-17

? that could have a number of meanings: 1. the R4, or any other slot 1 devices use micro SD cards. they go directly in to the slot one device. the newer slot one devices can use micro SDHC cards that may have 4 or more gigs on it. 2. a regular SD card can not just be put into the DS, some type of hacking thing (whether slot one or two) is needed. now most slot one devices come with a built in passkey(or nopass in some cases) which can be used to access a slot two flash card. some slot two cards can have micro SD cards put directly into them(the only one i know of it the EZ flash). some times this can require a flashed DS(a flashed DS has different firmware on it(you have ot put it on your self) and it gives the DS a built in passkey, or nopass. now those are built into the slot one device, so flashing your DS is not needed, or reccomended). if you are looking in to buying one of these, i would recommend something other then the R4, maybe the Acekard 2 or Acekard R.P.G.(the only big difference between the two is price and that the R.P.G. has 1 gig of built in memory.) the R4 team recently(or maybe not so recently) broke up, so no new updates are coming out, meaning newer roms might not work. and i never saw homebrew work on a R4. the Acekard has DLDI patching for homebrew, so as far as i know, all homebrew will work.

Epeoples (author)dsman1952762008-11-18

so a sd card, like the kind the wii or a camera takes, wont work becaus it wont fit in ds slot

dsman195276 (author)Epeoples2008-11-18

yes, that is why some type of card that goes into the DS is needed, it allows for the micro SD card to be put in to the card, and then loaded on the DS

Epeoples (author)dsman1952762008-11-20

the new dsi is going to use sd cards

dsman195276 (author)Epeoples2008-11-20

ya, but the DSI is going to be even harder to hack. I don't know if you can access the memory of the SD card from the main menu, and even if you can, the DSI will not be able to run homebrew and such just from the SD card, it needs the slot one card to run the game. And so far from what i have seen, the DSI is immune to all known passkey/nopass designs, and the old hacking systems that worked on the DS/DSlite do not work on the new DSI, making it temporally un-hackable until something made for it will work. I saw a video of a guy trying out 28 slot one hacking systems on the DSI and ALL failed. that included the action replay and R4 and such(so all ranges of them). and another thing that stinks is that home brew that uses a external slot 2 ram pack or rumble pack or such will need to be rewritten, since the DSI has no GBA slot. you might be able to rewrite the few homebrew things that need it to write to the SD card, but anyway, if you plan to hack, the DSI is not what you want.

Bartboy (author)dsman1952762009-04-12

Someone has already done it! Do you have one?

Epeoples (author)Bartboy2009-04-12

I wish I did.

emphatic (author)Kiteman2008-01-24

R4 is needed

killer_fan (author)2008-05-10

I'm going to get the R4 card and I really hope it works I really want music!!!!! WISH ME LUCK!!!! p.s is the Internet any good???

team_nes_1986 (author)killer_fan2008-07-05

I feel your pain, killer_fan. I have always wanted to use a DS program called DSMIDIWiFi. From what I've already seen, it looks pretty cool. You can use it to make music with your computer, and wirelessly. No MIDI keyboard needed, and no USB MIDI interfacing.

dombeef (author)team_nes_19862009-03-27

I have it... The internet is not soo good

team_nes_1986 (author)dombeef2009-03-27

Hmm. I guess I'd be better off getting a USB MIDI controller if I wanted to interface my keyboard with my computer.

dombeef (author)team_nes_19862009-03-28

No its very great but it have some glitchs.But you should buy it!

team_nes_1986 (author)dombeef2009-04-01

Okay, I understand now. I just wish I had the money to get the R4, plus the other "geek toys" I want, namely the iPod Touch, the DSi, and whatever is in the Xtreme Geek catalog. :-)

dombeef (author)team_nes_19862009-04-01

I got one for 6.00 dollors that is better than the R4!The site is

team_nes_1986 (author)dombeef2009-04-02

I just looked at the site: Hmm... It looks pretty good. I'll definitely have to keep that in mind.

The new Nintendo DSi will have a web camera, so maybe someone will figure out how to install Skype on it, and then we can make free skype calls!

spock155 (author)Solderguy2009-01-14

Why not just get the new psp?

Kwitmeh3 (author)spock1552009-04-01

i guess they want to use the ds

spock155 (author)spock1552009-02-15

Yea, I agree with myself!

spock155 (author)2009-01-14

I wonder if theres a way to hack texting onto it...

dombeef (author)spock1552009-03-27

Already done...AIM IM program

JellyWoo (author)2008-08-29

does a micro sd card come with the r4?

dsman195276 (author)JellyWoo2008-11-04

sometimes you can buy it with the R4, but it makes it more expensive.

JellyWoo (author)dsman1952762008-11-04

okay, thanks.

dsman195276 (author)JellyWoo2008-11-04

sorry i commented on that so late. as it looks i'm not going ot get a R4. i am going ot get a "acekard 2" as it has better homebrew support and some better features. and a 2 GB SD card should be fine since most games take up around 11-30 MB (some games that are long/heavily text based like Zelda, take up more MB , and round 60. at most they take up around 100 MB but that is only like 2 out of all the DS games there is)

dombeef (author)dsman1952762009-03-23

I got a nstt...
