    If you MUST get an R4 clone, go for one with wood.
    If you have a DSi, then SELECT "R4i Gold" cards can run it.
    See here for more info: http://gbatemp.net/t268348-wood-firmwares-v1-19

    Otherwise I'd suggest AceKard2i or SuperCardDSTwo.

    Doubt I'm going to get a R4. All these clones are variants are so confusing. I just want to get up to date information on the R4s.

    ALL R4's are clones now.

    R4 isn't a generic term for flashcard. It was a brand, now it's a joke.
    1:1 copies of the original R4 work with Wood but are limited to DS/DSlite and MicroSDs (Not SDHC).
    R4i Gold listed on the page I linked above work with DSis and MicroSDHCs.

    AceKard2i and SuperCardDSTwo both work with DSis and MicroSDHC.

    Like twiz said, "R4" is not a way to refer to flash carts, but most people think of the R4 brand when they do, so all the clone makers call their carts R4-something (you'd be surprised the shit they come up with to add to the name) to get sales, and the original R4 team isn't around to sue them.

    • DS / DS Lite
      The card will work on an original (fat) DS or a DS Lite.
    • DSi / DSi XL
      The card will work on a DSi or DSi XL as well.
    • Game Updates
      Firmware updates are what let cards play newer games, these are the life-blood of the card.
    • SDHC
      SDHC refers to SD cards larger than 2GB (gigabytes). If there's no SDHC support, you can only use SD cards up to 2GB.
    • WiFi Update
      The Acekard 2i can update it's cheats (and get minor bug fixes) over WiFi without having to connect to a computer.
    • Clean Mode
      The DSTwo has special features to ignore AP in most games, letting you play them without having to wait for a firmware update first.
    • RTS
      The Real-Time Save (Save State) function lets you save and reload your game progress at any moment you wish.
    • In-Game Guide
      You can pull up text files and images in-game, in order to check a walkthrough or map you downloaded at any time during a game.
    • Slow Motion
      The card lets you slow down the game speed as you wish.
    • In-Game Cheats
      The card lets you create and modify cheats while the game is running.
    • Special Homebrew
      The card has multiple pieces of special homebrew, such as it's own GBA and SNES emulators, as well as text/PDF reader and video player.
    • Battery Life
      Unfortunately the DSTwo's extra CPU and RAM (which give it the special features) eat into the battery life a bit.
