    Good news for R4i-SDHC owners! The R4i-SDHC team said that they will be releasing an update to pass the dsi v1.4. They also said that those new flashcarts on that other r4i-sdhc website ( http://www.r4isdhc.com/indexe.asp.htm ) is fake! so it looks like R4i-SDHC owners dont have to buy a new flashcart! cheers!

    edit: CRAP! they released a new card. THEY PUT SHIT IN OUR FACES! that's it! i'm not buying anymore of their crap! i'm gonna sell my r4i and buy me an ak2i. gosh! i feel like an idiot thinking they would make an update for the old cards! dang, some of u guys are right. never gonna buy a r4 ever again.

    You haven't heard the phrase "The pot calling the kettle black"? I just find it pretty funny that a company selling fake R4's posts a message about how another fake R4 is fake.

    What the guy above me said. The company saying that the other card is a fake also sells fake cards.

    . . . it won't. The "i" means it works on DSi.

    The R4i-SDHC is a clone, not a fake. The other company is selling fake versions of the clone. There is a distinction.

    Yep I agree there's a difference. A clone implies an exact copy. Seeing as how the original R4 never had SDHC that would make all the SDHC versions a fake instead of a clone, so it's a fake calling another fake a fake.

    I would say its a hardware clone with a slight upgrade on the original design. The card is not a fake in my opinion as it works perfectly and has a proper team behind it as opposed to a fake which tries to say it is the original team and often does not work.

    It uses completely different components and chipset so it's not a hardware clone, it's built itself off the R4 name even though it's not the R4 Team. It's a fake, not a clone.

    edit : Maybe the easier way to stop this becoming a pointless argument is to say it's a bootleg card. So it's a bootleg card calling another bootleg card a bootleg. Better?

    Some may be good some bad - but they have the same or very similar names - which are you actually buying, I have added the webpages as some have exactly the same name.

    Oh and the packaging does not help on most - very similar to the original R4

    Well done, the list could be usefull!

    I want to add:

    www.r4isdhc.com
    www.r4i-best.com

    for similar SDHC (red package)

    only www.r4i-sdhc.com should be the "original". At least they have genuine code proof!

    Then it's a fake R4 for certain. It's a clone of the DSTTi with an R4 sticker on it.

    I know it's a TT clone. I've been saying it's a clone.

    Yeah but you didn't say it was a DSTTi clone. Just saying "clone" implies it's an R4 clone. So my statement about how the company saying another card is selling fakes is like the pot calling the kettle black still stands. The R4i SDHC red box edition is a fake, plain and simple. The statement would be more valid if DSTT posted a note on their site saying "Don't buy the R4i SDHC red box as it's a clone of our card and a fake R4".

    So rather than recommending people to buy this fake shouldn't people be suggesting to buy the original DSTTi? After all, if the DSTTi disappears then so does all support for this card.

    edit : Also what you said was

    "The R4i-SDHC is a clone, not a fake. The other company is selling fake versions of the clone. There is a distinction."

    Which is wrong, while it's a clone it's still a fake R4. It's not made by the R4 team and it contains none of the original components of the R4. Clone of the DSTTi or not it's still a fake.
