    Has anyone actually bought a working R4i Gold? And where from?

    i am a little confused with r4i gold
    since there are 2 version of it from 2 different manufacturer (maybe)

    anyway, DX has it!
    i had read some reviews about it
    the compatibility of the flash cart is not that good with some of the games [​IMG]

    so, i won't recommend getting it

    I just received my shipment of R4i Gold cards and so far its working better than my R4-SDHC.

    So far, KH and Pokemon HG/SS work flawlessly.

    I got a working one from consolesource about 2 weeks ago. Its a clone and i highly suggest not getting one. they are not compatible with a ysmenu and lot of other homebrew stuff. Go with an acekard or the m3 zero that just came out.

    Got one from DealXtreme, took about 2-3 weeks to come, $11.01, legit too.

    Works ok, cant get YSmenu to work on it, and noboday here will help but most games work fine anyway. Also, if you need to check if its real or not, make sure you take the SD card out first, I snapped mine when trying to put the case back togetherand never realised until I took it and it fell apart in my hand! Looks very smexeh too.

    I hope people didn't buy this because it was gold.

    It's a nice card and it works fine on dsi 1.4 (they were the first to do it)

    The card doesn't have that impressive rom compatability though and it was the first on 1.4 because they just released a new card unlike other teams who just updated their card (AK, M£, SC, EZ Flash)

    I setup my nephew's one yesterday. It played every game well and it did multi-player flawlessly.

    They don't know much about flash cards and they're all happy playing games on it now. I guess most work anyway, just find one which will update often to counter future Nintendo firmwares.
