    Hi can anyone help me how to spot a fake? Also can anyone suggest which is the better one to buy? I heard acekard tops r4.

    I saw in my shop they were selling r4i gold but without the 3ds name but they say that it was compatible with 3ds so really need help on spotting a fake

    I can clearly tell you that 99% of R4s are fakes, it's only a matter of whether it's a good fake or not.
    From the box, I think it's a bad fake. The website just looks downright weird.

    Acekard isn't so bad. They have an anti-fake software to test if the cart is genuine. I suggesting ordering from temp sponsors to ensure that it is genuine.

    The R4i Gold from r4ids.cn tops the acekard! It's cheaper, has faster updates and has (almost) every function of the acekard. But it must be the r4i gold from r4ids.cn!

    That cart will likely work (at least for a bit), but it's not one of the recommended ones.

    It's generally recommended to stay away from any R4i except the R4i Gold from r4ids.cn

    As for the Acekard 2i, they're a great card and used to be better than any R4 but recently due to limited exploitable titles they haven't been able to keep up to date with recent 3DS firmwares.

    How to decide your r4i gold 3ds bought now is a genuine one or not?
    1.Be sure the website on the sticker of your card is www.r4ids.cn
    2.Running WOOD R4 for it and click start and help, you should get the image listed below.
    Please pay attention to "HW:R4i Gold 3DSb".

    3.Pay attention to the PCB inside the shell of your card and compare it to the picture below.
    Please pay attention to the elements marked with the yellow rectangle.
