    I just now noticed that the R4i Gold 3DS I bought from Nds-card.com doesn't actually say "Gold" on the cartridge. The only place it says "Gold" is in the title of the webpage where I bought my card. Is this normal, or did I get scammed?

    What site did you buy from? Would you please post a pic of the front of your cart and box if you have it? Also, again, how much did you pay? (We can tell if it is legit or not)

    NDS-card.com item link please? :)

    The gold that is mentioned refers to the sticker color. Original R4 used the silver color in their flashcarts, R4ids.cn uses the golden color.
    The RTS is just a new advertisement, since R4 Wood recently started supporting RTS.
    I do hope the card you bought is from r4ids.cn though and not from a r4i-gold.eu/.hk/.cn or something like that.

    I missed it too - OP said the card came from nds-card.com. If there is a problem, it's most likely not them. It's likely the distributor sent a bad batch - that happens from time to time, but I think this is a mere case of product confusion.

    If the OP can take a pic of the box, cart, and provide the link of the specific cart purchased, we can see if it matches up.

    The only other gold cards that are sold on nds-card.com are the gold pro and the gold plus, if he didn't buy those he's good.
    And no need for pictures really the link on the flashcart says enough.

    No need - well, I always thought the more info the better.

    To GoldenSun3DS - I'm thinking maybe they shipped you the wrong cart by accident. Does it say Wi-Fi on it?

    No, it doesn't say WiFi on it. So, it's normal for it to not say "Gold" on the cartridge? It says this on the cartridge: "R4i RTS 3DS Revolution for DS (3DS XL (LL)/3DS/NDSi XL(LL)/NDSi/NDSL/NDS) www.r4ids.cn" Anyways, it's probably a Gold and not a clone because I just updated the card and my 3DS to 6.0.0-11U yesterday and it works.

    Ok I´ll put a print soon, but I cannot do it today, because I'm in my girlfriend's house, my R4i RTS is in my home, when I come back to my house (tomorrow early) I'll put it here ok.
    I bought my R4i RTs from a brazilian official reseller, yes I live in Brazil^^, maybe you can buy it from here, but you'll wait for a long time to receive it, and thank you by your information Xarsah16. After I'll came back to this post because I have a new issue about my R4i RTS, and I have sure that you from gbatemp can help me, I always solve my troubles here:yaynds:

    Thank you a lot guys!

    (It works perfectly on 6.1.0-11U btw)

    Anyways, I wasn't asking so much if my card was legit, I'm really just wondering if the R4i Golds are supposed to not say "Gold" on the cartridge.
