    is that all we get?

    has anyone contracted the R4 team about this> I'm kinda getting jealous about cyclo DS updates and nothing for R4team.

    R4Team is gone. There is no one to contact.

    YSMenu might just be the bare bones, but since it runs of DSTT firmwre, when they get a Fix, we do too.

    The R4 Team is no more, they have basically disbanded and left the flashcard scene. So theres no new R4 in the works, there will be no new firmware update or anything like that. The R4 is dead, its stopped being manufactured and updated.

    Not "if so", the R4 Team is gone, its no rumor. Also theres no link, the team ended up leaving without saying a word or making a public, official announcement.

    As for why: legal trouble with Nintendo.

    R4 Have been Sued and they are no more.

    There are many flashcarts that are better than R4DS. Like a Cyclo.
    If you have the Money, Buy A Cyclo DS. [​IMG]

    R4 had a great run, but they are no more.
    In time, this will happen to all of our current flashcarts.
    This is just something we have to deal with.

    Sorry dood.

    Shit, I would've shoul've bought a cyclo, but R4 was avilable at the time.

    harilous, I know of a shop that sold the first gen r4 for 80!! CAN... you know what he told me!? "this is the newest and best in china" I call his bluff and told him "this just in, Europe did better (refering to cyclo), what your selling is D/Ced" he was convienced R4 was amazing.

    still, if disbanded, then WHY IS IT STILL BEING SOLD!

    That's easy man.
    They're still being sold because stores still have backstock of them, and they want to keep making as much money as they can for their investment.
    You don't think R4 is gonna buy the old stock back, do you?
    They have enough money trouble as it is, right now.

    I actually recommend the DSTT or Itouchds over the Cyclods.
    primarily since they are much cheaper and have most of the features that the cyclods does.

    It could be worse.

    r4ds is still a good cart anyway, so where's the problem? other than using some fixes it's not like it doesn't make some games work, all the games i downloaded till now worked no prob (about 50 games), except for some like chrono trigger, which needs anti piracy fix cheat. use it till it works and is continued to be mantained by game fixes, don't need to change now i suppose.
