    Hi,Am new here

    Am going to buy M3 real soon,since my R4 die on me,have it 3 months with 4Gb card,keep coming up stuck up say loading....i Try everything like updated,firmware and etc. I would buy another R4,but there to many fake one around.

    So I been looking at M3 Real.

    You've had a flashcart before, albeit a fake R4 (sorry to break the news to you...authentic R4 carts could only handle a maximum 2gb microsd), so you should understand it only takes a few minutes to download the firmware and load it onto your microsd card.

    Good place to start is here: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=891...t=0&start=0

    In short, get the M3 Real, get Sakura firmware or default 3.9, copy to microSD and you're set to go!!

    And Dark^'^Knight, there are actually some non-SDHC SanDisk card in 4 GB size...but they are highly unstable and not recommended to use, because they heat up really fast..
    They are very rare to find too...so I doubt that Antineo69 had nonSDHC, so my guess would be that he had fake R4 too!! Specially if it broke after 3 months of use?!?!
    My M3 Simply still works like a charm, and people reported that mostly, their original R4s still work, but are outdated..

    my guess is that your R4 appeared broken because you tried to use it with a microSD that isn't supported.

    Actually, I believe that your best shot is GBAtemps download section.....I'm not sure if NDSthemes host M3 Real themes, never checked them....but look here, strata8 made some pretty good skins, gangsterboi too, and you could check out my Sakuratronic skin [​IMG]

    Well, you're very welcome.. [​IMG]

    Go to Sakura FAQ thread (stickied here in M3 Boards, or link in my sig), there is the list of skins made so far....Densetsu3000 made a great job listing them all, with a little description and credits..

    sorry, you got a fake r4, the genuine r4ds support 2GB TF Card max.
    So your r4 die in 3 month .

    M3 is great ,but it's most expensive.

    cyclods and acekard rpg are most expensive
    the m3 real $ wise is mid range
