GameKool will have the M3i Real and the R4i available for pre-order soon.
Not much is known about these flashcarts (other than the fact they'll be compatible with the DSi), so I guess we'll find out soon!

Why won't the R4 just die..do people just like milking the R4 name? D: And whats with all these i's? I don't care if these flashcards are meant for the DSi, make an original name already instead of keeping the same flashcard name and adding an i at the end! Some creativity people!

What are these people doing? The R4 and M3 Real aren't firmware upgradeable. So unless they changed the carts significantly(which I doubt) I wouldn't recommend anyone buy these for months until we see what Nintendo does.

Sincerely,
Perseidi

Quote nesting FTW. I can't bring myself to believe that this might be the real R4 team.

That doesn't mean it will be crap, but frankly I don't see R4 as a worthwhile investment anymore now that other better products are on the market for cheaper, such as DSTT and Acekard.

If these really come from M3/R4 they better update their old carts firmware, too.

I hope people won't fall for them again.

The R4i is technically speaking not being developed by the original team as such, simply because the R4 team no longer exists, they disbanded months ago. It is being produced in 1 of the 3 factories in which all R4's are manufactured along with the R4 III and R4 SDHC. These factories do have small "teams" working on the loader with access to the source code, but don't generally speaking release major firmware revisions. These carts are simply made to turn a quick profit.

What I just said can pretty much go for the M3i Real too. This is also why the carts do not necessarily appear on the official websites.

Also, I wouldn't be surprised if the R4i used the same method to get working on the DSi as the TTDSi, by hacking up an original game ROM.

Do you have an idea who's behind those teams? I mean, I highly doubt that they form out of thin air, when they "disband" that means that they no longer got paid. It'd be quite interesting to know that.
