    I want the original R4 and I found these at Deal4Days (I've ordered from here before and it's legit) I just don't know which one of these is the real one.

    Please help I know this might be a noob question but I am new to R4 Cards

    There are no real R4 cards on sale anywhere any more. Every R4 made in the last 3 or 4 years is fake. The R4 team stopped making them years ago and since then the name has been adopted by the vast majority of cheap flashcards, most of which are clones or fakes of other more reputable cards.

    The original R4 is the real 1, there is an R4 that is known as R4 1:1 which will operate with the Wood firmware

    If an R4 will operate with the Wood firmware i would imagine that it would be listed as doing so

    Really? Huh. I guess it doesn't matter that I got an R4iTT since this one's fake too. I'll probably get an Acekard 2i for now and a DSTWO later then.

    The original R4 has no SDHC or DSi/3DS support anyways.

    I thought the R4 team had made a new 3DS version but I see not so oh well ^^"

    What is the best R4 out there that supports 3DS v3.0.0-6U?

    The best cart using the R4 name is the R4i Gold from r4ids.cn, make sure it's listed with that exact address.

    Just get an AK2i or SCDS2. R4s suck anyway. Zero AP resistance.

    R4i Gold uses Wood R4 which gets really fast updates thanks to YWG

    Is this the one?
    http://www.deal4days.com/R4i-Gold-SDHC-Revolution-Micro-SD-TF-Multimedia-Flash-Cart-for-NDSi-NDSL-NDS-s78581.html

    P.S. I know the DSTWO is really great, but the price is a killer, for a flash cart. I'll get that one later.

    Yeah that looks like the right one... though they have their labels wrong and some of the images have priceangels watermarks, so I wouldn't trust it, they might ship you a different model instead.

    I have ordered a DSTT once from PriceAngels before, it worked perfectly. But since I have a 3DS now, I got the R4iTT 3DS from Deal4Days, that worked fine. Deal4Days is PriceAngels, just the flash cart side of them (In case of SOPA).

    But what do you mean by wrong labels?
    Also, is there a review for this anywhere?

    That explains the watermark.

    They label it "R4i Gold SDHC Revolution", which is not the actual title.

    The review is here; http://gbatemp.net/topic/293386-r4i-gold-3ds-compatible-review/

    Great. And they named it that because of the packaging. They don't know much about flash carts, so they just name it whatever is on the packaging. Would you recommend this over the Acekard 2i, and if not, why? (Sorry, I don't get to buy things online very often, so I need to get my money's worth)

    It's on-par with the AK2i, but it doesn't have the contact issues and usually updates a few days quicker so people suggest it now.

    Gotcha. Thanks for your help. I'll pick this up first and later the Supercard DSTWO.

    P.S. My friend wants a flash cart for his 3DS, but since I don't have much cash, the cheapest one would be nice, he himself said it was fine, as long as it worked on his v3.0.0-6U 3DS.
