    EDIT: the R4i Gold sold by ShopTemp is also compatible with Wood R4. Download Wood R4i Gold here!

    I have been sent some photos from the Shoptemp team...

    the "original R4 DS" they are selling is confirmed to be compatible with the Wood R4 new firmware, they've just tested it
    they just sent me those photos v

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    However be careful because ShopTemp sells 4 kinds of R4's:
    - "Official R4DS": confirmed working
    - R4 SDHC: not working
    - R4i SDHC: not working
    - R4i Gold: not working

    more info on R4 & pricing here:

    Yum.
    I'll probably direct my friends to Shoptemp if they need a flash cart.
    I like the banner xD

    Lol, they actually modified the text.

    I thought "based off of" was also acceptable though.

    Awesome banner. Can't beat it for $6 now that Wood is out and about!

    I bet the cheap R4's will be flying out of warehouses due to this.

    Me too. I'm tempted to get one, but I could get screen covers or something for $6.

    I'm also tempted to buy a card, but alas, I am broke. [​IMG] The only drawback I see is the 2 GB space limit.

    I don't know if those (dealextreme) were the original ones though... were they?

    62.5%, technically. But, in all honesty, is it worth quibbling over $2.25? For christ's sake, I don't want to take R4 stereotypes seriously, but how cheap can you get?

    Besides, a purchase at Shoptemp supports the community.

    Looking back now, the R4 was totally worth the money.
    It was a brand new Slot 1 solution, it was unheard of back then!
    The ease of no-patching tools, the convenience of no passcard, the versatility of the microSD card, and all the DS games playing so well, sometimes even better!

    It was just amazing at the time, Slot 1 flashcarts still are.

    Is it possible to see R4s raise in price because of this?

    most likely no

    acekard never raised the price when akaio was made.

    If they did, even the n00bs would stop buying it; because most of them do so because it's that dirt cheap. The low price is basically the only thing keeping the R4 afloat these days.

    Ha! Just when I was about to replace my original R4 with this, a new firmware came out. Looks like I can keep my R4 for another year or two or perhaps until 3DS arrives.

    Shame that R4s don't work with the DSi. Wood looks awesome.
