I have a flashcart that is nowhere near original. It is a r4i gold 3ds from r4i-gold.eu. I have been trying to update it but I'm always told there is an 'unknown chip'. Has anybody ever used one of these because I would love not to buy another one.
Also does anybody know about romachine?

Thanks for your speedy replies guys, I was afraid I would get that answer. Oh well, to ordering online I go.

If you live by a lake, you can use it as a fancy skipping stone!

But seriously, toss it and get a new flash cart. It's not worth the headache, to you, and especially to those who are to inevitably help you in the future.

Spread the word that nobody should buy R4 cards.

Having a gazillion different R4 cards should ring a bell to someone that's not the real deal anymore...

Anyway as some people suggested.
Burn it and get either an Acekard or a Supercard DSTwo
The WoodR4 cards aren't bad!

OT:
WoodR4 isn't bad indeed.
But for "noobies" it's not recommended.
1 thing doesn't work and they spam it like there's no tomorrow.

Imho they should jack up the prices of R4 cards to 70 quid.
It'll save a lot of headaches and annoyances of others from people asking the same question over and over and over again.

The thing is the AK2i and (proper) R4i Gold are in the same category as far as support goes. The people behind the cart itself make the firmware/bootloader updates, while the game compatibility updates are made by a separate group or person (contactable on the forums at times).
But the R4i Gold has updates within 24 hours- The Acekard needs more than one week.

    why would you need your candles warmed?
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    is this like a fetish thing
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Because they obviously need to be warmed
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    The person who made the image was probably just thinking of wax melts and said candles shit happens
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Although the wax of a candle could probably be melted down and repurposed with a fresh wick sometimes the wick burns out and the jar is still full
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    I dont think a candle is ever going to work on there.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    no they're actually called candle warmers

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    Thought that was a mug warmer.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    what i don't get is, if you want the smell, but not the ambience of burning a scented candle, why dont you just get an aromatherapy oil diffuser, scented candles are shit anyway they barely smell

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @M4x1mumReZ they're used for that, but they're called candle warmers

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    I don't get why they would name it that.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    You wouldn't melt a candle with this, as if it was too big for example then the wax would flood the holder.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    That's my theory btw
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    apparently people use them to melt scented candles instead of burning them which sounds like a very roundabout way to accomplish something

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    It would be more recommended though for wax melts.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    yeah you use candles that come in jars, apparently

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    You can get those small yankee candles.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    They come in tiny little jars.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    These are what I am on about.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i've seen them

    Me too
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    Really nice to have.
