    I remember seeing a post somewhere with a few pictures of it. Can someone link me to that guide? I think I found it on this forum. Thanks!

    You solder right where that solder dab is at on the left of the black circle (ic is under the black circle) is on the left one, if its the only one! That will turn it into english. If its the one like on the right, its the last one (bottom dap) where the solder dap is located.

    I know its a pain to have to remember the software patch, or even have to wait for it to be updated with each new release of the kernel

    I can't help you with the soldering, but I advice patching the English R4 firmware with iq132s patcher. It will run great, without any difference.

    Alas, taping a piece of tin foil over the two contacts is not enough to convert an M3 into an R4.

    You don't need to do that, really

    My M3 is running the R4 1.10 kernal perfectly fine, you just have to patch it. Don't solder it. Really. Don't.

    I'm sorry I thought you meant in this topic.


    I can't know why someone wants to do that though.

    also the patching method didn't work right away when the new r4 came out last time. we had to wait for an updated patcher. that is why i just did the hardware method.

    Because the M3 costs more, which means is better to some retarded people?

    lame suggestion, the m3 simply and R4 cost the same
