    because i saw the slot on the side so i was a little skeptical, is there anyway for me to figure out if it was fake or not?

    i received my order today but it was not from that site so i want to know if it is possible to find out

    the fakes ones can only used the DSTT loader or the R4 loader depending on which clone it is
    its a clone within a clone

    Yeah I know that and if you think about it that's just stupid to makes a clone of a clone. >.> Now in the future we will have a clone of a clone of a clone .... yeah. Wait there is a clone that uses the R4 loader that's a fake M3? Is that just the adaptes one?

    i looked through each one to make sure it wasnt fake, so now im just a little paranoid

    at the time we bought it, my sister was rushing me so i didnt have time to find another website so i didnt know what to do but to look through them. (none of my friends were available either)

    scroll down to the fake m3 reals and make sure your m3 doesnt have any of those features that the fake ones have
    sakura will not run on it if its fake also
