    Be aware, that is for the R4i and not the R4 as far as I can tell.

    If it is an official R4 (not i) then you want - http://www.r4ds.cn/download/r4ds.html

    1.18 is the latest R4 kernel.

    Question for the more advanced users actually, will the R4i kernel work on the R4?

    Yes, R4li (not R4i) actually made a couple of firmwares for the genuine R4 in an abortive attempt to make themselves appear to be somehow related to the official R4 team. Nobody believed them so they stopped. It must be noted that although these firmwares have slightly better ROM compatibility than the official v1.18 they are much more buggy and unstable.

    The best firmware for original R4's is still YSMenu0903270000 built with the unofficial DSTT v1.17a07.
