The notice shall also state whether appellant's copy of the transcript shall be provided in hard copy or electronic format or both. If no election is made within 21 days of filing the notice of appeal, the appeallant will receive a hard copy of the transcript. If a supplemented transcript is requested, the request shall specifically identify each of the items of additional record requested which would otherwise be excluded under Rule 25 (c).

(l) Certification. A certification of the attorney of the appellant, or affidavit of the appellant representing himself or herself:
(1) That service of the notice of appeal has been made upon the reporter of the trial or proceeding;

(3) That the estimated fees for preparation of the clerk's or agency's record have been paid, or that appellant is exempt from paying such fees because of stated reasons;
(4) That all appellate filing fees have been paid, or that appellant is exempt from paying such fees because of stated reasons; and
(5) That service has been made upon all other parties required to be served pursuant to Rule 20, and that in all cases referred to in Section 67-1401(1), Idaho Code, service has been made upon the attorney general of the state of Idaho. The appellant shall not be required to certify the payment of estimated fees in criminal appeals, appeals from denial of a petition for writ of habeas corpus, or petitions for post-conviction relief, if the district court has entered an order, or thereafter enters an order within 14 days of filing the notice of appeal, that such costs shall be at county expense.
(m) Amended Notice of Appeal. In the event the original notice of appeal erroneously states any of the information and requirements of this rule or additional facts arise after the filing of the initial notice of appeal, the appellant may thereafter file an amended notice of appeal correctly setting forth the facts and information. The amended notice of appeal shall indicate changes from the original notice of appeal by means of strikethroughs and underlining. An amended notice of appeal shall be filed with the clerk of the district court in the same manner as the original notice of appeal but no filing fee shall be required. If the original notice of appeal was timely filed from an appealable judgment, order or decree, the amended notice of appeal will relate back to the date of filing of the original notice of appeal. If the amended notice of appeal includes a request for preparation of additional transcripts, the notice must include an estimate of the number of additional pages requested and a certification that the amended notice has been served on each reporter of whom a request for additional transcript is made. Except in capital cases, an amended notice of appeal may not be filed after the record has been filed with the Supreme Court.
