    A lot of fake R4 clones that say they are r4isdhc.com or r4i-sdhc.com have popped up in the last few years, by this time I have gotten quite annoyed with them as I have had that aswell.
    I came across this 2 years ago when I bought an r4i-sdhc-rts-3ds from http://www.r4isdhcuk.com/ (fake site) that gave me like FIVE r4-sdhc "dual core" from r4isdhc.com.cn (fake). If you are going to buy an R4 I bought my R4i-SDHC-3DS-RTS from http://www.r4ds-dsi.co.uk/ I bought from them and they delivered so I personally recommend them (They don't have some carts though).

    Annyyywayy,
    Here is the guide (photo xd)

    So this card is fake or? I want to order the cheapest card for my DSi XL 1.4.5 as you know from the other thread because the update didn't work for my old card.

    is this card legit or not?

    Okay thx, I think I will get the r4i sdhc v145, nds-card.com have the same card but it is cheaper, is nds-card.com a legit site? I can see it is a trusted seller by gbatemp, but I have never bought any thing or a r4 card before, I am a n00b..

    link to r4i sdhc v145 from nds-card:

    Lol, I never knew there where / are a few fake R4 sites. Are these just knock offs or do they just scam you?

    To be fair, I haven't seen a romcart site that didn't look shady.

    Fair, fair.

    This particular site (r4isdhc.com.cn) is a scam from r4isdhc.com and they say "they work on latest DSi v1.4.5 and 3ds", They don't they are acekard ripoffs and only work from like up to 1.4.4 on dsi and 3ds v4. I know this because I, myself have one of these cards (about five) from buying 1 R4i Sdhc 3ds Rts from r4isdhcuk.com (Fake seller) and they gave me like 5 of r4 sdhc "dual core" (lolno I even checked the r4's chip, it probably doesn't even have a core...) Point is, they are cheap and fake knockoffs that don't give you what the description says. (Scam)
