    I bought an R4 card (which came with a 8gb microsd for a steal) to run NDS stuff on my 3DS on eBay from a pretty vague listing and just got it in the mail. It has pretty bizarre packaging and labeling but has "www.r4isdhc.com" printed on the PCB. Haven't tried it yet, but is this thing legit?

    It's a legit clone. ;) Should work fine though.

    I'd throw that microsd card away, though. Probably a counterfeit that will give you more trouble than it's worth.

    Good call. I'll probably go to Best Buy and pick up a legit one for $10 instead.

    Also, what is the difference between this "dual core" one, R4i Gold, etc. if anything at all...? The last NDS cart I owned was the Supercard SD/Superpass combo back in 2005 :P

    They sell them at Best Buy? You'd think that'd be a conflict of interest with Nintendo.

    Thats the newest 2016 clone. Its "legit" for a clone.

    2016? :P I think the 2013 one is the best :P

    Is its kernel Wood at least? Or is it a shitty knockoff menu?
