    Sorry if this is in the wrong topic section, not sure where to put it....

    Anyways, I'm from the UK and since ShopTemp isn't selling flashcarts, can anyone recommend a trusted site which sells R4s that work with Wood firmware?

    I know.. and its hard to find a site which sells them, well a reliable one anyway.
    I wonder how long it'll be before ShopTemp starts selling Flashcards again.. if ever!

    Bought from here twice as friends and family wanted the flashcarts.

    But I ordered the Acekards, not R4. If you ever decide to take the risk and buy from there, I highly recommend them.

    Shoptemp are selling again.
    Though they are using AlertPay instead of PayPal.
    Seems that that was where the problem lay,

    nds card sale dot com.

    I ordered the one that is now $2.99 and have used it heavily for a year including with the Wood firmware. No problems to report. Free shipping btw. Sorry I don't know what that is in GBP.

    It took over 3 weeks to get here though, should get to the UK quicker I would think.

    The fact that the site URL is censored here should be a hint it's not a good suggestion, dude.

    Specifically I think this was one of the ones that was hijacking old user accounts to spam ads with them.

    Price Angels is basically DealExtreme, right?

    Okay, I found one on Price Angels, this is the packaging.

    Is this an original or a clone that won't work with Wood?


    EDIT: Okay, I took the risk and ordered it, £2.22 isn't that bad, right...
    It is free shipping, and says it should arrive in 14 days. Just gotta wait and see now.
