    Ok so I have an R4 here and the box says that it's an R4-III Upgrade (The box looks like this)

    And the cart looks like this

    So my question is; Is this version of the R4 the real deal, or is it just another clone?

    Do NOT buy an R4 card. At all. Ever. Get a REAL card, like an AceKard.

    Yeah man R4s, tho cheap, are not worth the effort. AK2is are the way to go, if you look hard you can find them for cheap [​IMG]

    lol yea thanks for the responses and I know R4's suck... but I got it for a present a while back and I just don't feel like I need a new one that badly. Ill just wait for the 3DS to come out and get the first cart compatible with that [​IMG]
    Also my question now is, should I use YSmenu or the R4-III firmware?

    If it can support SDHC its a CLONE!!!!!!!! The original R4 team disbanded in 2008. The R4's on the market today are all clones using patched versions of firmwares other developers have created. Please read this for more details http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=106232
