    Any "R4" other than the original is a fake/knockoff. There was never an official R4i or R4SDHC or R4whatever-the-fuck-somebody-decides-to-stick-after-the-name.

    Tell us everything the card says on it. EVERYTHING.

    > Did you go to www.linfoxdomain.com to try the other R4 firmwares ?? (there's at least 23 flashcards there with 'R4i' in the name)
    > What does the sticker look like ??
    > Does the R4 have a web address on it's sticker to help us know what it is ??
    > What is actually written on the sticker ??
    > What colour is the flashcard &/or circuit board ??

    Sorry for all the questions but it may help us determine what card you actually have.
    you may even be lucky that the 'WOOD R4' firmware might be able to be used - that is constantly updated & works with the newer games

    Hmm no web address on the card sticker ???
    OK - well according to linfox website there's 2 possible 'r4i SDHC revolution' clones avaliable

    One @ http://r4-v.com/, while the other is @ http://www.r4rts.cn/ ( & http://r4rts.com/ - seems like they have 2 site for the same card)

    None of them seem to have a gold sticker though - the only ones I can find with a black sticker with gold 'print' that also have 'v1.4' on it (not 1.4v like you said) are @ http://r4i-gold.eu/ and http://r4i-gold.com/

    So I can only suggest you could download each one & try to see it it'll work (if you happen to remember the type of box it came in - you could look @ the site picture & take a better guess to which one it might be)

    I've noticed most of these though haven't been updated for ~3months, so there's is the possiblity that even if you do get a working firmware installed it will still not play any of the newer games

    hi,cheers for that.
    the card definately says 1.4v.the sticker does not have a website on it but the one on the box is www.r4i-sdhc.com.au
    the card has a working software on it but does not play some newer games so im really after something like YSmenu to put on the card if thats at all possible?

    You can try a DSTT tutorial cause you should use exactly the same files we got on the blue R4i SDHC V1.45 from www.ndsill.net !
    And actually, you can see the images are hosted on http://www.r4igold.cn/ [​IMG]

    Or you can do yourself a favor and not buy another R4, instead get a reliable card in the Acekard 2i, or fork over the cash for a DSTWO....

    ... Or donnot spend money if you don't really need to.
    But it depends on if you are comfortable with this tutorial...

    I thought R4i 1.4's only worked up to a certain point, then they require you to go out and buy a new card...

    I would use my blue R4i V1.45 SHDC 'till the chip inflames [​IMG]
    If you know the differences between these systems' linkers, you know the solution to apply to play easily.

    cheers guys,despite the obvious difference of opinions.lol.iv managed to use the tt-tutorial to run ttmenu parallel to the 'r4' software so the newer games are now running.
    thanks to all for the input
