    All the others will be fakes, you may or may not be able to use the same firmware, but it is probably recommended to go with the firmware that goes with the one you have.

    R4 is the original while the others are fakes/clones. You shouldn't get an R4 anyway. Way outdated! If you want a cheapish card, go with the Acekard2.

    Don't even bother to check on those carts!
    Just buy yourself an AK2 or DSTT or EDGE, or some other cart..

    Moved to R4 section!

    I made the mistake of getting R4. Its an official, as far as anyone knows, but i cant update without YSMenu now. Go with AceKard or DSTT, most likely DSTT. Ive heard AceKards are breakable.
