    I'm absolutely disappointed by low support on R4i SDHC, maybe due to the cheap architecture, and want to move to a new R4i card.

    What about Hyper, Ultra or RTS? Expecially Hyper, look very well supported, with continuos upgrade. Is it a good choice?

    Please, don't tell me to buy AK2 or other... I want to stay on R4i!

    Do yourself a favour a favour and get a M3/SC/EZ?AK2 cart. They can be updated and being able to update your cart is a good thin. it's better then buying a new cart per update.

    However you're a masochist as you insistence to stay with a cart R4i related suggests so get the Ultra because I like the word.

    I'm afraid there is a lot of prejudice on R4 clones.

    Hyper comes from original R4 team and looks well supported, with continuos firmware updates, including last 1.4 support.

    I only ask if any trouble with games or other particular issue is known.

    TY

    What makes you want to stay with r4, i mean AK2i has WAY better support.
    You might get a r4 clone (you don't want to do that my friend had a clone) the chance is there even when it says it's original.

    i also have a R4i SDHC, but i'm going over to ak2i. I've had a R4i all the time since i owned a ds, but i'm going to quit. I don't trust it anymore. You may buy a new one, but if i where you, i would choose the AK2i, because it's proven itself, therefore i'm ordering one

    The Hyper does not come from the original R4 Team, it's a clone, a knock off, a copy, a forgery or whatever term you'd prefer to use. I really don't get the brand name loyalty when it comes to R4 fakes/clones. You're already complaining about the one you have, why swap a turd for another turd?
