the r4i gold that shoptemp sells is from the split team who run r4ids.cn and the r4idsn websites. this card is not a clone (as in a copy of anything) but based on the ak2i hardware (it also uses an actel chip). the only relevance it has to the original r4ds is the name “r4.” the r4i gold that is sold by the team who stayed behind is the r4 ultra repackaged with an r4i gold sticker and box. the r4 ultra was an oem design manufactured by acekard with software support from team acekard. acekard no longer supports it in anyway and akaio blocks it.
the r4i gold that you are asking about is actually a pretty good card. the native menu isn't that bad, but it lacks ANY options. the team is active and they are putting out rom updates. they now have a deal with ywg to build a fork of his firmware with each release that runs on their r4i gold. the card is more expensive than the 1:1 r4ds that shoptemp sells. i have both sitting in front of me and to be honest i think the 1:1 r4ds is not a clone or a newly manufactured card. the box, print, font, logo, colors, cardboard thickness, and everything else are an exact match the real r4ds i also have in front of me. i don't know for sure, because i didn't ask, but the 1:1 might just be old r4 stock from after nintendo sued r4 and effectively ended the team.
i would recommend either card if you want an r4 (probably for the wood firmware). otherwise if you can spend a bit more money you can grab the acekard 2.1.
