    What format does micro sd have to be? also, how do I set it up, do I need to update any firmware?
    I have the R4 from realhotstuff. Please help me figure out how to get it working with latest games. Thanks.

    Put all the files from the download onto your microSD.

    apps? what you have in mind?...as for ui, i assume you mean themes, i don't use themes myself but a google search should bring up what you're after.

    Since this is already here I have a small question. Do I have to make my own .sav files or will it do it automatically?

    As soon as you start a game a save file will be created, and you're welcome.
