    i recently bought an r4 (my acekard2 stopped loading games, and would just stay stuck on a loading screen) and i am having some trouble getting the r4 to work. i followed the directions on installing the files from the r4 website and i still cannot get the card to work. when i load the card up the top screen immediately says "loading..." and just stays there. can anybody help a noob out?

    edit: i also noticed that
    a. my r4 came with no disk, which i didn't think mattered because you can download the software from the website
    b. my r4 is not spring loading
    i didn't know if these facts are significant or not. please help me!

    So you have an acekard and downgraded to an r4? ohk...
    Theres a chance you got a wrong firmware. Theres alot of fw out there. Make sure you got the 1.18 since thats the latest one, not 1.19 or other ones.

    From Where???
    write an honest professional letter and request a return. everyone knows the ak2 just got off over 3 months worth of DOA and FAT error'ed kits.
