The "magic solution" is NEVER, EVER buy an R4 clone! The only R4 branded cart you should buy is the R4i Gold from r4idsn.com, as that cart is officially supported by Yellow Wood Goblin and his Wood firmware. The Acekard 2i is the cheapest alternative and YES, THE EXTRA FEW DOLLARS ARE DEFINITELY WORTH IT. If you've got some extra cash to spend and want a few extra features get a DSTWO, BUT NEVER, EVER BUY AN R4 BRANDED CART AGAIN!!! I hope this clears quite a few problems up, and cuts away at the number of noobs asking 'h0w do i f1x my R$' every two seconds!!!
