    You mean a R4? Because I've never heard of a R4new.

    If it's a R4, you drag and drop whatever firmware download you have onto the cart and it works. And 1.24 isn't official R4 firmware and is terrible, download v1.18.

    Okay, you bought a fake then, sorry to break it to ya. However, if it's a clone, it should work relatively the same. Go to here and download firmware 1.18. Then just drag and drop the files on the MicroSD and you should be fine.

    Probably just drag all the files into your micro sd. WTF are .CCC files?

    Would it be more of a DSTT clone if I found TTMENU.DAT and TTMENU.SYS files in their firmware? Man there's weird ass files I never heard of before. .CCC

    Lol, the original R4 isn't even that much I got mine for around $30 (with a 1GB MicroSD, USB MicroSD adapter, and S&H). You could probably e-mail their customer service and they might help (although if they're big enough assholes to sell fake cards I doubt they'll give you a helping hand). Next time use the sponsered sites here or trusted ones (I found ModchipCentral.com to be great and I got my R4 from them, and although RealHotStuff.com had quite a mix-up with my 3in1, they had some nice customer support and fixed everything).

    You should give YSMenu a try as firmware. It's the best firmware for R4's and R4 clones. Yours is obviously a clonecard.
    I'm not completely sure if it will work, but it works for most R4 clones so it might also work for you.

    Here's a guide for installing YSMenu.

    Actually he is wrong. Each card is designed diferently and needs different firmware to run. You download your firmware from r4new.com and unzip it. you then just drag everything to your micro sd card.
