    Im worried now that the new firmware will brick DS' that have fake R4s in them. The R4 in the picture is white i thought they where black? Please tell me if they are fake or not so i can cancel my order asap

    Cancel your order, and get a better cart. That'll be a good move.

    Buying a R4 at this point is just a stupid.

    There are white and black R4's. However that one from divineo seems fake because the description says "Support SDHC". The R4 does NOT have SDHC support, so this one must be a clone.

    Anyway, get something else, like Acekard 2, CycloDS, TopTop DS, etc. The R4DS is old.

    Divineo is legit but you're probably better off ordering from dealextreme.com. Heard people had some trouble with Divineo's US site but I had no problem when I ordered my first slot 2 cart. R4 is outdated, you should go for the iTouch or Acekard 2 if you want cheap.

    iTouch can load the M3 Sakura firmware on it so you don't even need Moonshell. It plays MP3's in the rom menu.

    Sakura is a firmware by m3 team. IMO its one of the best firmware so far, but at the moment it cant run homebrews since its a hacked fw. You can get a m3 real and use the tripleboot so you can use 3 fw, M3 real, Sakura and itouch.

    Trip boot (Sakura FW)

    By the way if you want a cheap flashcart get a dstt for only $20 at DX.

    Im not sure which one is better but i only suggested that since its cheap. But from what i heard and read, DSTT is pretty good.

    It's just a firmware made for a certain product. There are 2 firmwares. The normal one, and the Sakura. You can choose which ever you like.

    And if you're gonna play JUS, there is a translation patch for the game, so you should get it. Most of the game is translated that way, and you should be able to run it fine.

    Also, ItouchDS is a good choice. It's better than a R4. Not sure about the Sakura firmware, but the game works fine on the normal firmware.

    ok im going to get iTouch but how do i put moonshell on it?......i dont care about homebrew and all that other stuff all i want from this flashcart is to be able to play DS games, watch movies, and play mp3s which is why i was leaning towards r4 because its very easy to do on it, but now knowing about its issues im going the iTouch route since it seems to be a good alternative

    IS DIVINEO A FAKE OR NOT?

    All you need to do is download the Moonshell programs in GBAtemp's download center, and put it onto the micro sd card.

    I heard lots of mixed reviews from Divineo, so I'd rather not buy from them. DealExtreme is a good place to buy, but their shipping takes around 2-4 weeks to deliever. They got a free shipping worldwide, so any order you buy from them comes with free shipping. It's slow, but free.
