    Well to tell u the honest truth, v2watch isn't really the best place to get your cards. They used to accept credit cards and Paypal, but not anymore. Also, it takes about 3 weeks of shipping and I've heard from a lot of people that the cards they got from there are fakes. If you're willing to pay 5 more bucks for reliable service and really fast shipping, check out realhotstuff.com, it's much better

    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.

    You sure?
    A friend of mine bought R4i Gold from them and it works fine.
    And it was not a fake + the site says its The R4i Gold can work on 3DS perfectly!
    Support R4ids official: www.r4ids.cn
    r4ids.cn
    And they accept Credit Cards and Paypal

    Its ok to buy it.
    If i find a way to buy it too i will buy it from that site for sure

    Just because something works perfectly doesn't mean that it's not a fake. I had an Acekard 2i that was a fake and it worked for 3 years before it had contact issues. Regardless of whether it's a fake or not, they DON'T accept credit cards or paypal. I just checked it and the only options I have are wire transfer payment and Western union.

    PayPal don't let transactions for Flashcarts go through. I bought an AK2i shortly before they stopped this from V2 and it arrived quite quickly. Its a pukka one, as I checked the anti counterfeit code on Acekard website. I emailed them about the stopping of PayPal and they told me that PayPal stopped them because of the Flashcart legalities. They did offer to send me a PayPal invoice if I wanted another one. Great service overall from that site

    LOL pukka....hmm well if they still let you use paypal by invoice I guess it's an okay website. I would still recommend realhotstuff though.

    yea, v2watch is where I got mine. got it about 6 months ago, and it's still working fine. I even bought a different flash cart at first, and they let me send it back and trade it for the R43ds gold by r4ids.cn I live in kentucky and it took 11 days to get to my home.
