    Ok, here we go. i have a Chinese R4 but i know i can get English firmware on it. right now i have kernel 1.10 English on it and its working fine. However the reason for this is that the guy who sold me it language patched the English firmware so it would work.

    I've looked for a LONG time for the language patcher so i can patch v1.11 to work on it but i cant find one damn it. if anyone could share a link, info or help i'd be very appreciative.

    thanks alot everyone

    yeah, the guy who sold me the R4 has just sent me the patcher yesterday, and yeah it does work and everything loads up properly but when going to load up games it just sticks at the 'game loading' part.

    so for now i think i'm just goin to stick with V1.10 because it works just as well. advice to you, get ANY R4 and just get any Kernel you want lol. preferably one that works XD

    The patcher should work (I'll not PM or mail you as I haven't tested it though) but the soldering is impossible unless you have a very old R4.

    What you mean 'that price'? I thought it was quite cheap actually.

    I got it from a man who sells legit Computer stuff and hardware on a Market stall.
