    I bought this R4i Gold card http://www.realhotstuff.com/R4i-Gold-3DS-RTS_p_86.html. But then I soon learned there are numerous R4i Gold cards that all go under that name. I also found two websites that both claim they make the R4i Gold card
    http://r4ids.cn/index.htm
    http://r4i-gold.com/index.html
    The first one shows the same picture as the one I bought ,but the latter is the one that I've been getting all my info from. I have concluded the first website is the one that made the card I bought. I also heard that one R4i site is notorious for not updating their carts. So did I buy the cart that is updating their carts or the one that doesn't? All info is very much appreciated.

    r4ids.cn are the "official" makers. By official I mean kind of the best because the original R4 team disbanded - by rule of thumb you should always by cards made by r4ids.cn.
