    Prefereably the R4i Gold, but then again since NDS/DSi been left for years by now. Just get whatever flash cartridge you can find on the market/shop which supports DSi v.1.45E or v.1.45U. Ask the seller to preinstall the kernel for you (you'd need to provide him/her an SD Micro or buy 1 from them so they can install it for you there) to make it easier on you. Then you'd want to add latest TTMENU/YSMENU third party kernel/firmware to your SD Micro (you can find it in the Firmware Section of this Forum) to make it support all NDS/DSi game rom. Relying on just the cart's original kernel/firmware will not let you play more than half of the NDS/DSi game collection.

    Thanks for the answer!
    So, even if i have the 1.4.4E fw, i have to buy a cartridge for 1.45E?
    Can you give me a reliable site where to buy an R4? I live in Italy for the moment, and I can not find Italian resellers.
    Thank you very much!!

    Yes.

    Sorry, I can't recommend any online flash cartridge seller site. You'll have to research through Google for a reliable one. Make sure to cross-check with the flash cartridge's official website to see if it's still hosting the kernel/firmware to install to the SD Micro. Many flash cartridge site been inactive or closed.

    That's the Original R4 Revolution for DS that can only use 1GB and 2GB SD Micro (non-SDHC). Only works on NDS Fhat (first gen NDS) and NDSL (second gen NDS).
