    Introduction

    This is my first time to do a review , please kindly point it out if I got something wrong . I would like to thank ​

    Hello everyone , today I am going to review the R4i Revolution produced buy r4idsn.com which gets officially supports from Wood R4 . I like Wood R4 , so I want to thank Yellow Wood Goblin first for his awesome and hard work , with his continually effort , all Wood Users have a really good time in the fantastic game world . [​IMG]

    Packaging
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I am pretty satisfied with the little blue box , the size is exactly the same with Acekard 2i and all other R4 clone . Actually the letters on the packaging is kinder outdated since it supports all NDS fat/NDS Lite/NDSi/NDSi XL , which may confuse some newbies who are not familiar with the scene .

    All his main features are printed on the back of the packaging , not much difference with other clones .​
    Features:
    The largest problem the R4 has recently faced is the LACK OF MANUFACTURER SUPPORT! Once SDHC cards came out, the poor R4 was essentially dumped for its sluttier sister, the R4SDHC (you could really stuff her full of homebrews) . The R4DS Revolution is reborn because of Wood R4 . There is another issue remains , it only supports 1/2 gigs MicroSD and only works on NDS/NDS Lite. Now with this awesome R4i Revolution , everything works like a charm !!!

    Compatibility:
    Wood R4 is said to be 99.8% Compatibility , maybe 99.9% I guess . basically everything works on it , yep , I mean everything . but just for information purposes, here is a list of compatible games:
    #5326_Blue Dragon: Ikai No Kyojyuu : works
    #5325_Mario vs. Donkey Kong Mini-Land Mayhem :works
    #5323_Crafting Mama :works
    #5322_Tamagotchi no Narikiri : works

    I just test these games , I am impressed .

    Sorry again , I don't have enough time to test the homebrew since I rarely use them , just for games only .
    I give the compatibility 10/10. Everything works fine, it's a must have cartridge IMO . For a cartridge just costs $8.90 with so many great features , you'll never complain anything .

    Pros and Cons

    Pros:
    officially support from Wood R4.
    Works with all NDS system.
    Supports SDHC.
    cheap price , $8.90 only.

    Cons:
    No Real Time Menu or Real Time Save

    Conclusion:

    Packaging: 9/10
    Build Quality: 9/10
    Software: 10/10


    Total: 9.5/10
    In conclusion, the R4i Revolution is a must have if you just care about games. It just cost $9 bucks , definitely a competitive price IMO . Even though it doesn't come with ablaze features like Real Time Menu or Real Time Save , it still a perfect basic cart that would meet your requirements.

    Lastly I would thank [​IMG] for giving me the chance to review this flashcart!

    -I am not sure whether they could bypass the future updates or not , they could do it if any other team succeed in bypassing that.
    -Yes , it's pre-flashed .
    -[​IMG] . I just contact Lightake, they said they would bring the no skylight version back soon . Actually the two versions are same (pre-flashed) , but the new version without skylight is slight cheaper than the old one .


    Yes , it is correct.

    Thanks a lot! I think I'll get one. Just one last question: What's the "no skylight version"?
