    so i have a R4 top~

    and i was wondering wether anyone could tell me i could use other firmware or files from other R4's and use it on my flashcart~

    also some people say that fake r4's need constant patching for new roms.right?

    but i dont event patch mine and all of the new games work even pokemon heartgold~US

    so do i still need to patch my firmware??

    sorry i dont have any images but i have the link to its official site

    www.r4top.com

    tnx guys~

    If you look at the kernel It's a obvious DSTT clone. You may be able to use the unofficial DSTT kernel with it.

    Edit: Also YSMenu would probably work if you follow the DSTT guide.

    It won't destroy the card. What gave it away was the TTMENU.DAT & TTMENU.SYS included with the kernel. The Top kernel is a hacked YSMenu & it works on a real DSTT.
