    I ordered an R4 from the ModChipStore.com on Friday, and I'm really happy with the shipping because I got it today, Tuesday, and wasn't expecting it til later in the week.... except.... I didn't get an R4.... I got an M3 Simply. What do you guys suggest I do? I've already e-mailed the ModChipStore and let them know about it... is there any other steps I should take?

    Discuss.

    If it's the older batch, just solder the pads.

    I think it's in the newer batch, since it didn't come with the white shell.

    if you really want a r4 instead just send it back and say you want them to pay for shipping because its thier mistake.

    Well the reason that I want an R4 is because it gets updates faster. That is true, right?

    M3 simply is better imo.
    More likely to keep updating the firmware.

    The R4 gets it's updates 2 days before the Simply. If waiting 2 days for updates in the future is more of a problem than waiting for a different flashcart in the mail now, then send it back.

    If you have to pay for shipping, it's not worth it.

    The m3 is NOT better, it's exactly the same thing.

    I'd just keep the m3 - too much hassle to return just to get the same cart with a different sticker back.

    11111, thats why i said imo after i said it.
    I know most people think it is the same but my peronsal opinion is that the M3 simply is better.

    So your opinion is clearly wrong.

    It's EXACTLY the same.. not better, not worse, not different.

    Most people think it is the same because it IS the same.

    How can someone's opinion be wrong?
    Just because i think the M3 is better because of the company it is made by, i don't really think it means i am 'wrong'.

    Also just because most people think it is the same it dosen't make them right does it?

    If an opinion goes against fact then of course it's wrong.

    "In my opinion the moon is made of fish."

    Do you see - that opinion is clearly wrong.

    If I said that IME one of two loaves of bread baked to the same recipe in the same oven by the same baker was superior to the other, then again that opinion would obviously be wrong. and thats what you are basically trying to say.

    The r4/m3 are made by the same people in the same factory on the same machinery with the same components. One cannot possibly be better than the other.


    And no, just because the majority see something as true doesn't necessarily make it so. In this case however, the majority are right for a change.

    They only put different stickers on the cards after they produce it, do they ?

    R4 is exactley ( 100 % ) the same as M3. The only thing they do different is to put different stickers on it and an old firmware on the M3. Is this Correct?

    almost correct - the m3 firmware isn't any older - they all have whichever is current at the time.

    So, if they are EXACTLY the same, why does it matter if the R4 gets updates faster? Cant you use the R4 updates on the m3?
