    You can check your answer here: http://www.r4dsrevolution.co.uk/different-fake-versions-r4-r4i/

    Also I'm using my FAKE R4i for about 2 years if I'm not wrong and still works so I wouldn't really worry about it. Most of them have timebomb which makes them useless after some time. To fix it you just need to turn date back year or two.

    First off; don't order them from there. Grab them from some of these sites:

    http://www.r4ids.cn/

    or

    http://3ds-flashcard.com/

    Never get one of these from Amazon; they may rip you off. Especially since those images aren't actually taken for that post; they could be directly from the official sites.

    somewhere
    It is, but carts with the year in them have a "time bomb" that locks it up after then, forcing you to buy a new one every year.

    Unfortunately there isn't much you can find on amazon.ca.

    It's legit (in that it's a functional flash card, that is). I have the R4i SDHC Dual Core variant. (There's no actual difference between them besides the label.)

    This card is a DSTT clone.

    The official menu included with this version of the R4i SDHC has a timebomb that prevents you from using the card after two years. There's a hacked version of ysmenu available that doesn't have this issue, but I'm not sure where it is.

    I would highly recommend using http://www.dsflashcart.com/ and buy the R4i Gold 3DS Wood.

    It works on ds dsi and 3ds (all firmware versions)

    MAKE SURE YOU GET THE ONE LABELED WOOD


    the others have time bombs
