    Hi guys


    So, i just bought a r4. the box is from the old r4, but the card is golden, with some big black dots on the right makin a curve or something.

    It´s written:

    r4 i v 2.0
    3d

    Revolution for DS
    (DSI LL/NDSi/NDSL/NDS)

    so, the seller told me i can use it on my 3ds.

    question is: can i?

    if yes, how?



    PS:the r4 came with a flashcard and it has a folder called games with some games(o rly) and some other folders,they are:

    moonmemo, full of readmes
    moonshl2
    r4i menu


    and then 2 files:

    _DS_menu
    r4

    they are both DAT files

    wat do?

    You bought a crap clone.
    I don't think it supports the 3DS.
    It came out when the 3DS didn't even come out yet.
    You bought a crap clone.

    oh boy


    anyway, i just tested it in my ds lite and nothing happened, so i think its not just because it dont supports the 3ds, but its some problem with the files inside it or something(this happened to my ttds when i bought it)

    Sounds like one of the crap clones like what AlanJohn has said.

    Since you've bought it, then no choice... Use it on a DS variant...

    Simply throw it away and buy a working flashcard.

    Yeah go ask on Yahoo Answers everybody there is a top contributer and they will help you.

    ...

    But for real you just got a clone that is NOT compatible with the 3DS, if you want it to work on your DS lite then just download the 'official' version of the firmware from the website on the cart.

    LOL Unless you can afford a better Flashcart like the ones Ryupower suggested, just get a another R4 that is NOT a clone.

    Please tell me where I can find a REAL R4 that is compatible with the 3DS.

    On the side-note, the acekard is actually cheaper than the crap R4i 2.0 3D.

    ???

    R4iDSN is build much better than an Acekard
    Wood runs better right now than Akaio
    R4iDSN is 7 Euros, Acekard 2i is 10 Euros.

    You can find an R4iDSN everywhere.

    A lot of people suggest ShippingZero, NDS-Gear, Real Hot Stuff, etc. Ask on forums because ShopTemp is unreliable due to paid off reviews.

    Why do you need to get an R4 anyway? Get an Acekard.

    I don't see how the reviews have anything to do with finding a legit cart.

    The R4iDSN is also a clone just with support from ywg.
    It wasn't made by the original R4 team.

    Oh Really? Wow, how smart. lol.

    R4 is just another name for "flashcard" for 90% of people on earth. Get over it.
