    I wonder how it is. Can this flashcart really be that bad?

    The R4 Ultra was a rebranded AK2 clone and as this is from the same company I'm guessing it's a rebranded AK2i clone.

    It is a clone of the original R4 without almost any changes at all. While I wouldn't say that the original R4 is crap, I'd say that clones of a outdated flashcart which could damage your DS generally is a bad idea.

    Edit: So I was wrong, it's a clone of the Ak2 which I personally think is the best flashcart available with the exception of CycloDS Evolution. But this still doesn't change the fact that it is a clone.

    It's called: "Riding the Coattails of the Victor"
    Since R4 became so popular, there were numerous clones.
    Now that we've entered the DSi age, there are still clones (in name) of the most popular one.
    It's most likely an AK2i clone, as has been mentioned, but they're going to take the well-known name in order to sell more units.

    Tell your friends.

    Why is this crap even being mentioned on GBATemp? It's a fake card from a no-name shop stealing someone else's parts and name, with no promise that it won't break something. The last thing that GBATemp should be doing is advertising this hunk of junk and putting up links to where people can buy one. We shouldn't be encouraging people to buy shoddy, fake merchandise.

    Yeah, nobody should even buy this. Just wait for the CycloDSi folks.

    The section you're looking at right now is called "User-Submitted News"
    You don't need any special credentials to post here.
    Our members post here in the hope that the information they've found might possibly help someone.
    But above all one rule stands:
    Caveat Emptor;
    or, "Let the Buyer Beware".
    Simply because something is posted here does not mean it's approved by the staff of GBAtemp.
    If you don't trust it, don't buy it.
    Yes, it's really that simple.

    And if you want my opinion: I wouldn't buy this.

    What was it that P.T. Barnum said?
    "There's a sucker born every minute."

    Somebody will buy it.
    Quite possibly someone intelligent.
    Give it time and we'll have our answers.

    Lol R4, what people seem to forget about is the original R4 manufactures getting sued by Nintendo along with the help of a whole list of 3rd party games developers. The R4 team that a lot of you guys keep referring to can never come back in the same way after that court case so clones are only to be expected. In reality it's not really a fake R4 though as the so called FAKE team seem to be the only people producing R4 products now.

    R4i is kinda old news anyway and was posted before Christmas on the 18th, along with news of M3i REAL on Chinese sites.
