Last official R4 version is 1.18.
Latest R4ils/R4li version is 1.25.
Latest WoodR4 version is 1.14.2.
All these work on official R4s. Because your menu version doesn't match any of these, it's a clone.
Since it is a clone, I reiterate my original suggestion: Buy a better card and do a little bit of research on what you're buying first this time.
Incorrect i used to have v1.20 firmware running on my original r4 i forget the team but there waz once a team that did unoffcial r4menu updates for r4 and their clone up to v1.27! so he could hav original although we need sum pictures for proof of which cart is being used here
