    A friend of mine was away in spain and bought 3 r4i gold cards (mario on the box) but the cards in the box wheren't the usual gold plastic and gold chip instead it was grey colour with a lump under the sticker (which is gold in colour) i've tried every r4i gold firmware(including the www.R4IGOLD.cn),DSTT,DSTTi,WOOD R4 nothing is working im getting two white screens the ds shows the card as star wars which many r4's do, Any help would be great i'll try get a couple of photo's and add them to my post(how do I add my pictures?)

    They're not R4i golds.

    There's no R4 company any more. The R4 team disbanded years ago. Anything with "R4" in the name is produced by somebody else and they're just cashing in on the name.

    Did a search using the details on box - found this post

    The best answer suggests r4i-sdhc.com as the 'official site' but no answer for your card (as such) - have you tried the 'official'
    Also have you tried googling for 'r4i gold mario' - that might give more help

    i bought an R4 clone and got a Fake Acekard.

    For shits and giggles, go to linfoxdomain, and download Firmware / Kernels for the Acekard.

    What does it say on the 48 pin chip? is it a xlinx SPARTAN or an ACTEL?

    what does your firmware need to be named like? iLL.il? Or TTDS.dat, it matter. Because if your card is looking for the firmware file and the file has the wrong name, it's never going to find it.


    For further reference, stay away from anything R4. These are clones / mods of first generation cards, you want to get a third gen. cart like a SCDS2. Maybe a bit pricier, but you'll be saving yourself a lot of fustration. Especialy if you are new to the flashcard buisness. I myself could probably figure out how to get your card to work if i physically held it in my hands. Cards like the SCDS2 however, are top of the line cards and you will find support for any of your problems in a comunity like this here.

    Away from you.
    I know right, it's simple. All you do is put it on top of the paper you don't want to fly away.

    They "Might" be DSTT clones. Looking at the box its similar to a cheap clone I got some time ago. The r4igold team kept changing their hardware/software revisions. So it might be hard to trace exactly what combination works.

    Try this link first as it looks like the old 1.4 box.

    R4iGold_v1.14b_English

    This is just to confirm/test what the hardware is. If the cart boots from the r4i.dat/*.au then you are in luck. RGF ysmenu works on this cart as long as you rename TTmenu.dat contained in his latest release.

    Hope this helps.
