    I bought a Chinese R4 from sky2k.com along with an American one. I thought I'd be able to use either, but when I try the Chinese R4, it comes up with a bunch of chinese characters on the bottom screen with exclamation marks.

    Is there any way to make it work, or do I need to send it back?

    Thanks so much for any help you can give!!

    IIRC, I think that's why I figured there would be no problems.

    In my case, I copied the required software from the CD for the American version onto the MicroSD card, put it in the American Version one, and it worked.

    I then took that same MicroSD card with the same software copied from the American CD and put it in the Chinese version, and that's when I got my chinese-language error that I cannot read.

    I'll have to look into that mod and see how it goes from there. But until then, is there any reason the Chinese version would not work with the American software?

    You can't use the american software on the chinese version and vice versa. That's why there is a mod to change the language version.
