    Yeah, it's a guide that shows you everything you need to do from getting the R4 to playing games on it.
    I should know, I made it! [​IMG]

    PS - Please read the bottom screen of the DS on the video player [​IMG]

    I would like to ask something off-topic. How is the battery life of your NDSL with the R4 (with specific settings like brightness, volume, etc)? I want to make a comparison with your experience and the GBAtemp review.

    So on the lowest brightness, moderate volume, and no wi-fi, battery life, from what I have experienced, is about 15 hours.

    The battery life is similar to a proper game. I haven't done extensive tests on it, but It's definatly not making a huge difference.

    What do you mean the supplied card reader doesn't work? :S I was kind of relying on that...

    The card readers supplied in our units do work [​IMG]
    maybe sinkhead was unlucky with his one.

    On topic:
    It's an interesting video. I like your accent, sinkhead. So British!
    You would hate my french accent though.

    How are the transfer rates for the card readers? Do they actually support USB 2.0? I guessing they are probably as bad as the standard headphones that Apple bundles with their iPods, usable but crappy.

    It is a nice review. I wouldn’t have the guts to burn $40+ on a product from a company that is relatively new. Too bad you couldn’t put the microsd card in on screen to show everyone if it was spring loaded or not.

    Yeah, the spring loaded slot feels really good quality. It doesn't feel 'cheap'

    great rom compatability
    no slowdown
    easy skinning interface
    m3/r4 firmware interchangable so if r4 ever gets shit canned you wont have to worry about outdated firmware.
    5 dollars cheaper
    better pcb design than m3 (debatable)

    this flashcart practically has buy me im badass written all over it. and im sure gbatemp's reviews are going to reflect that.

    well it was a nice "tutorial" not review
    everything was easy and clear. good job [​IMG]

    you should make a real video review next.. or smth
    show more of the r4 GUI instead of going straight to the game

    I am making a review soon, just once I've gotten this DecalGirl DS Lite Skin application guide up and also a guide to change the shell on your R4

    I don't think you can interchange the firmware together. Are you just speculating, or has some one really tried m3 firmware on R4?

    Well, Shaunj66 tried it and here was the result: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?act=ST&f=91&t...ndpost&p=529149

    Anyone got it to work yet?
