    If it's the same bootleg R4 that was talked about here before I think they were N-Card clones.

    Give us an image! If it came with a Slot-2 Card that has a USB attachment then it is an N-Card.

    Have you tried both the English and Chinese firmwares? I don't remember hearing about any bootleg R4's that use MicroSD cards. It could be a faulty unit maybe.

    If it says hardware not compatible your probably putting english firmware on a chinese r4. You can only put chines firmware on a chines r4.
