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

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

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.

I'm a little disappointed actually, these carts used to go for $3-$4 on DealExtreme.

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.

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?

on Shoptemp they actually confirmed woodRPG compatibility, at least thats something.

not to be an ass, but priceangels.com has them for like 3.75.... nearly half the price.

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.

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.
