    Did you copy the files from inside the English folder or th folder itself? And are you sure you're using the right firmware for the right clone?

    If that's where you grabbed it then that's why it's not working. The original R4 used an encrypted firmware and the clones us an unencrypted version. You'll have to use the firmware for your particular clone.

    Yep, but that might be an older version of the firmware. You'll need to visit the website listed on your box, I can't remember which one you said it was but that's where you'll need to grab it from.

    Flashcarts coming with MicroSD are a seller thing so it'll depend on the retailer you buy it from.
