    I never got anywhere on my old topic answer wise, but I do appreciate the help.

    Though, has anyone heard of a SDHC r4 card that runs official hardware? Mine does, on the box it says that it is supposed to run firmware for r4-sdhc.com(or something like that) and I'm really wondering what I did wrong.

    hardware =/= firmware

    No card that supports SHDC is official hardware.
    If you mean an SDHC compatible card that runs official firmware, there is no such thing.
    There are some that LOOK like the official firmware (like the R4li), but they aren't real.

    Also, r4-sdhc.com isn't official.

    .... My SDHC card runs firmware(1.18) from this site - http://www.r4ds.me/. I do believe that it is the official firmware.

    thats odd, never seen that before
    what mem card are you using and maybe the fake r4 team copied the official hardware from the original r4's

    Alright, I've uploaded a video. It shows me downloading the firmware, putting it on my r4 SDHC and then playing a game.

    ps. i use my sisters psp to transfer files because i lost the usb for it.

    If it can ru the official firmware, WHY can it not run wood 1.04/5?

    Yeah, I opened the back of the card and it looks just like the picture you posted, but I can't run r4sdhc firmware. So I basically have a r4 that supports SDHC, runs official firmware and refuses to run anything else.
