    Hi, i'm writing to ask you an advice. I have this R4i (probably a fake) with the V 1.4 yellow balloon on the up right corner. On the red PCB says "R4i-SDHC 3" I tried to update the firmware with a file that a friend of mine passed. I overwrote everything and when i started the card again it said fake card: contact reseller. Then I downloaded another firmware from and installed it. From now on (tried a couple of different fw) all I get is a white screen (top) and a white flash followed by a black screen (bottom).
    Please I need help, card is not mine but my friend's. He's probably going to say "You broke my card" and I don't really want to pay another

    your card is from or

    Go to the exact website's URL listed on the card.

    And yes, pretty much everything with "R4" in the name is fake, the R4 team never made anything other than the original R4.
