    Lots of people say that the R4 is dead but it isn't. It was never dead in the beginning at all. The R4 team had 3 flashcarts with different names. R4, R4li, EX4DS. The original R4 was there first flashcart its website is r4ds.cn they stopped making new firmwares for awhile for this flashcart. After that they moved on and made there 2nd flashcart which is the R4li its website is r4li.com they made there i flashcart and made a website for it there. On that website they still supported the original R4 and supported the R4li. Then they stopped supporting the R4li and original R4 because they started to make there 3rd flashcart which is the EX4DS.

    Currently if you check there website r4li.com this is what it says.


    New product R4i
    We apologize for our slow action of updating firmware. Our new product Ex4DS movie card is coming soon. All of the engineers are working hard on the new product that lack of hand fixes the bugs in 1.24. We promise to support original R4 in the future. Thanks.

    They will start making new firmwares after the EX4DS is released for the original R4 and R4li.

    Why is it that all of a sudden the R4 is worth something again?

    Uhm no. The R4 Team disbanded and loads popped up claiming they were the original team and actually weren't.

    If you download a 1.18 from R4DS.cn it you get a .url linking to r4official.com & it was added like 18/1/10. [​IMG]

    They still do. Its just that right now they don't because they are busy making the EX4DS. Plus I might be wrong about this, but I think its a very good speculation. But a very reliable one. I will find out more news about this later.

    So you don't know for a fact that it's the R4 Team, it's just speculation. Yet you posted it like it was fact. Where did you read that the EX4 is being made by the original R4 team?

    The 1.24 kernel from them does work on the original R4. With that said the 1.24 kernel is also slow and buggy compared to the 1.18 final release, imo the team behind the kernel and cards are not the original team. Why? first ask yourself why would the original team not just post the updates to 1.18 on there original page and if needed just create a new page for the DSi card?!

    The EX4 is manufactured in the same place as the original R4 and so is the R4li.

    They're not from the original R4 team. I was around when all the clones started appearing claiming they were the original R4 team. The GBAtemp staff were in touch with the team and confirmed they disbanded.

    Maybe they don't want to put it in there original site so they won't be sued by Nintendo?

    If they own the EX4DS then they're going to get sued.

    Look at EX4DS' site, it copied Nintendo's design.

    If it was from the original R4 team don't you think it would have been mentioned in the offical EX4DS thread? It's not from the original team. How many times do you have to be told?

    Well we will see... But anyways this is not the whole R4 team but one person off what... There where more than 1 members that where in the R4 team. They all left and one stayed and made the R4li. The others stopped or maybe went to other companies such as Acekard Team or M3 Team.
