    I've been looking into getting myself a flashcart, but none of the sites on http://www.r4ids.cn/buy-r4i-e.htm seem to have a secure connection (the green https lock). I don't want any of my information getting stolen, is there something I can do about this?

    That's what most people on here will point you to I imagine. Good place to order from, but the shipping time can be a bit hit and miss.

    It can't run current official wood versions. There might be a cracked version that works with it somewhere on the net.

    Should have just waited a few hours for the answer and bought this http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149
    You can buy it from GBAtemp's official sponsor, they're reliable: http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149

    I could possibly cancel the order. How long do you suppose it'll take to get here, since it'd come from Hong Kong?

    I'm probably going to try to cancel the order in light of this information.

    If it's sent unregistered, anywhere from 2.5 weeks to a month is normal.
    If it's registered, it takes about a week less on average.
    At least that's my experience with shipping from China/HK to Norway, might be different to US though.

    I suggest cancelling the order, but if you have to contact support to cancel it, chances are they will ship it before they see your email, at least that has been my experience in the past.

    I'm probably screwed.

    Edit: I am not screwed. I succeeded in canceling the order.

    However, seeing as I probably won't be able to receive the package by the time it gets here, I'll have to wait until I know that I'll be in one place for long enough. Thank you for your assistance.

    All people above, my advise is do NOT purchase any of R4 cards, they are fake as fuck, get a DSTWO card instead. :)

    Both backups loader and homebrews Work GREAT :P

    Some people don't have the money or need to buy a DSTWO. Not to mention the battery drain. I personally am a proponent of the DSTWO. I own a normal DSTWO, a GBAtemp themed one, and the GW Launcher "4in1" DSTWO. But I can see why someone would rather have an R4 Gold.

    I bought it from there and it only took 10 days to ship, with free shipping.
