    Funny thing that I just received my R4 in the mail today. I was talking to my friend and he's like, why did you buy an R4? And basically he said that the R4 doesn't get any updates anymore and that it's dead, and he says that you should have gotten cyclods.

    I looked at the r4 website and the last kernel was like 5 months ago. There was another forum topic about using R4SDHC kernels, 1.21. So I thought that would be a nice alternative to the conundrum, but I wasn't sure if that's entirely possible in the first place because well, I didn't really read it.

    So yea, just wondering if the R4 is dead, and start saving up for like... a cyclods or something. Hopefully that doesn't die.

    SORRY FOR THE DOUBLE POST. INTERNET WAS FUNKY!! [​IMG]

    Eh, the PS2 still has some life left in it.

    Europe is still waiting on Persona 3: FES, after all.

    Probably a few months after Persona 4 is released since they have to translate it from English into four other languages.

    Maybe they should delete the R4 section and leave R4 discussions for the Testing Area, "Others" sections.

    Yeah, with YSMenu I think the R4 still has some life, although buying one right now would not be a good thing to do.

    Ysmenu it supports the new games cause it uses the dstt kernal to boot games it can boot and now it has dldi surport aka.can boot homebrew id use R4YSauto or something on gba temp some one made you dont even have to unzip the files it can do it [​IMG]

    and there is support one last update (rumor) and if u have a fake r4 it will brick your ds (release date) 15th September

    checking if your r4 is fake

    peel the sticker off and if there a chip FAKE no chip LEGIT
    or the easy fix boot ds without r4 then put it in and if it restarts Fake [​IMG]

    have fun
