    hi, im an owner of a CycloDS and my friend wants to get an r4 from realhotstuff
    he has his own reasons for getting one and he cant be convinced to get a different one
    i know a little bit about the R4 so i think i can help him
    I was wondering if the R4s on realhotstuff are real or not cause i read that some guy got a fake one in real packaging
    the R4 is here

    The R4's are dead right now. You are better off with another flash cart.

    Some of the clones that are produced are nameless ones.

    Also, one of the user that ordered a R4 quite a while ago from RHS, had gotten a fake one. Unfortunately, his clone looked almost the same as the original one. Few weeks later, he found out it was clone (I don't remember how he found out, but he informed that it clearly wasn't a real one), and asked RHS about it. RHS themselves didn't know of it either, and gave him a refund.

    Basically, getting a genuine R4 is impossible, unless you buy it used from a trusted seller. Any "New" R4s are fakes.

    RHS is a pretty reliable place. I have shopped from there several times before and everything has been fine.

    I don't think they will be carrying any fakes around. Unless you order the clones.
