    Okay so I read from another post that the r4i-sdhc team will be scrapping their cart and be selling a new one on
    r4isdhc.com

    I wrote an email last night (september 6th) and got this response.


    ---------------------------------

    Me:

    Hi

    Sorry to bother you, but Ive been reading that you guys are going to not update the cart and just start selling a new one,
    R4isdhc.com

    Is that your team?
    Are you going to abandon the original cart and just start with a new one?

    Thanks for your time

    No, they aren't. Being a clone doesn't make them trash. I haven't had ANY major issues with mine, and I've had perfect compatability so far.

    It's a damn good card, so stop saying it isn't. I understand WHY people spam that as soon as they see anything more than "R4" in the name, but mindlessly bashing a good card is obnoxious, old, and ill-informed.

    yes but as he said, aside from still not working with 1.4, I never had an issue with my R4i-SDHC, worked well, ran whatever I threw at it, etc... what higher expectations do you have?
    it does what it claims to do

    2009-09-08

    The lack of english in these emails has left me totaly confused. From what I can gather, they are going to release a new cart for 1.4, but they will also release a new kernel for all their R4i carts (R4 SDHC, R4i SDHC & R4i SDHC 1.4), which seems to make the most sense right now.

    Could you point to the thread with the email indicating that their plan was to release a new card? I know that that has been the gist of most of the speculation, but looking back through most of the R4i-SDHC topics, I can't find one email that says any more than "soon."

    this doesn't make any sense, i mean, they've got the dsi updater, it's a DSTTi clone, they should know the coding and make it work on the R4i [​IMG]

    Maybe DSTTi clone means based on the same core component but with some minor differencies like chips not rewritable hosting the card-header. Thus the clone card should be cheaper than the original.
    (cf. original product got a CD-RW and the clone product have a CD-R)

    Yeah you are right, I think we are screwed

    i'm pissed, i believed them them for a very long time, and after the dstti came with an update, i had good hopes, but now, it seems that they just quit, after what is it now, 2-3 months? I'm going to oder AK2i......
