    I think I can feel something sticking out under the top half of the sticker. I peeled it off partially and saw there was a chip.Otherwise, the appearance of the r4 would be real.

    Could I have more details about the chip under its sticker?

    if you see a chip under the sticker. its a FAKE.
    turn on your ds WITHPOUT the r4. while the ds is turned on, plug in the r4. if your ds restarts, its a fake. if it doesnt, its still probably fake because of the chip

    as above .. real R4 cards tend to be solid plastic both front and back so you cannot feel the chip [​IMG]

    theres a guide in my signature how to check [​IMG]

    Yeah but it isn't very reassuring either, because if it does reset, then it's a fake, but according to you if it doesnt reset it's still fake [​IMG]

    Like kobykaan says, if there's a chip under the sticker it's definitely a fake. Check his guide out, it's the best one you'll see for checking whether your carts fake or not.
