    I don't think I can really mention much about why I hate fake R4's so much. Not only are R4 fakes a big $$$ Money scam, but there are loads of other reasons here.
    1. I used to own an R4i Redant. Tried to run Pokemon White and Dig Dug DS on it. Took 10 minutes to load the games.
    2. There are so many complaints about the products out there. I can't even mention them all in this topic.
    3. Bad compatibility with games and the DS system. R4i Redant never worked on the DSi, and I don't need one to prove it!
    4. Cheap plastic that can easily break off.
    5. An SD card slot that makes no sense.
    6. The R4 is really a DSTT with an R4 main menu.
    This is just a few of what gets me annoyed at these fake carts. I do feel bad about these devices also because of their websites, they go down pretty quickly!

    and do you think the original R4 is better than it's clones?

    The original R4 is already been abandoned long time ago.

    By R4 clones, i'm talking about the systems that have terrible compatibility. The ones that take forever to load a game. The ones that have a DSTT kernel

    If you want a good clone of the R4. You should get R4i sdhc the one mark with a yellow star with 1.4.4 down to 1.4.1 or R4i 3ds. r4i-sdhc.com.
    I have no problem with them working on 3Ds or my Dsi and my Ds Lite. I always keep my Ds Lite for the kenral updates.
    The original R4 as been abandoned, but it only works on a Ds or Ds Lite, But the YWG woodr4 updates are great for the old card.

    I've never even heard of "R4i Redant"... and I've been on this forum for over two years.

    It's a dead and rare clone of the R4i devices. Not much is known about these devices. And mine became pointless because of the abandoned and seized website.

    Well considering there is an insane amount of clones, including the bizarre Spiderman R4 (O_____O Yea. That's what I felt too the first time I saw it) among others, I wouldn't actually be surprised

    Can't most DSTT-based clones run some version of YSMenu/RGF?

    Yeap not too sure which seedy flashcart selling site it was. Still remember the box saying something along the lines of "Special Spiderman Edition" and what not. Think I was searching up EZFlash carts and stumbled upon those. Anyway, did manage to fine an Avatar one LOL
