    Hi,

    I know the R4 team went on to make another card -- is it this team? http://www.r4i-sdhc.com

    I am just wondering which is the BEST or most reliable of all the clones...

    And I know R4 is for noobs... But is anyone knows, any help would be MUCH appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I recommend to buy R4 Neo. AKAIO does work in R4 Neo I believe.

    AKAIO does not work on R4 clones. (1.4.1 Proper repack and up)

    The R4 Team hasn't made another cart.

    Yep, you probably read a post from a fanboy who had been told by someone else who was told by someone who was told by this blokes cousin that some bloke asked some other bloke in China who ask his cousin who knew a flashcart seller who knew a bloke from the company that made the clone who swore on a kittens life that it was made by the R4 Team. The only "official" clone is the one made by the M3 Team.

    Pretty much every clone cart manufacturer claims they they have part of the R4 Team in their company.

    I never said it didn't. GameKool is gamekool.com and a retailer of flashcarts and instead of just trying to make a sale they steered them away from a clone. Not many sellers would do that, so much respect to them.
