I do not believe that, but better safe than sorry. And I do not have an R4 anymore (and the one I had was from an age before there were clones) anyway.

True! Hopefully it'll be more than just for borking fake cards. I don't like the sound of my flashcart changing my floor tiles mind.

I don't think they are threatening to brick people's DSs, I think they are just saying that R4 clones can brick your DS (this is already known to be true), and that future R4 updates won't work on these clones.

As for flashme, it won't mend a blown fuse, will it?

Well, I guess they haven't given up on the R4. The screenshots lead me to belive I have a fake one though >.< I'll have to do some looking into it...

Isn't it... dangerous?! I'm pretty sure there are risks of bricking DSs with original R4 too if there's a bug or anything... o__O
