    Hi friends...

    I have a R4s for a couple of months and I never had to charge it one time at all! Unbelievable.
    Lately I ordered the RCMLoader because of its functions, but I'm disappointed with the battery draining when not in use.
    I can only send the payload a few times within 2/3 days after a full recharge.
    Is this a normal behavior of the device?

    how did you make R4s run in 6.2.0 do i have to use their own Atmosphere SD files? with their payload

    because i have RCM loader and its working fine with my own Custom Atmosphere SD folder in 6.2.0

    i am confused and want to throw it, should have researched it more to know that i cant just drag and drop regular payloads to it, i am under the mercy of their website support and updates

    Hi!
    I can build myself the uf3 firmware with latest payload. There is a tutorial somewhere..
    But you have an easier option. Flash R4s with their "customize" uf3 from official website and put your favorite payload.bin on the root of sd card. No need to flash R4s anymore! Just update payload.bin in sd card when you need to change payload.

    ah that's why, thanks for the info, i didn't rename it.....


    and the irony, they are now doing what RCM Loader is doing....Xkit lets you switch between 6 folders with a button....

    Glad you make it!

    What do you mean with irony? R4s doesn't have a "payload change with a button" feature...

    Not all of them have a battery. The original ones have a really crappy super-capacitor. Have you disassembled yours? I have heard that newer ones may have a battery, but that might not be any better than the capacitor. I bought the first Xkit branded dongle (xkit X86-Loader) and some were shipping with a broken battery (I changed the battery in mine quite easily).

    i was talking about this
    https://www.xkit.xyz/rcmloader/
    [​IMG]

    while true their first versions were not good, but this version feels like an upgraded version of SX OS pro Dongle, its super user friendly and drag and drop with community released payloads, i could not ask for more, plus its shape and design and build quality is the best i saw on all the dongles i tried

    i started using it after i failed to make R4s work again, now both function the same way.
    only that R4s cant have multi payloads changed with a press of a physical button like RCM Loader Does

    as for the battery i have been using it for 2 weeks, i haven't recharged yet, since i got it, i plugged it maybe 6 times, 5 because my console crashes from Retroarch

    copied from their site
    Battery
    • Built-in Li-on battery
    • 1000 times inject with 1 hour charging time
    • 3 months standby time
    How to change build-in payload :
    Hold the button + to jump to the next payload (LED flash 4 times).
    [​IMG]
    Low battery prompt:
    When the battery is low, the LED will flash red and green after the button + is pressed.

    Replace/update the payload steps:
    1 Connect RCMloader to the computer by MicroUSB cable.
    2 After the computer automatically recognizes the RCMloader as a USB flash disk, copy the payload.bin file to the corresponding folder to replace the payload.
    * The payload file MUST rename as payload.bin


    and btw i renamed the folder to whatever i wanted, and edited their txt file my new names and it works!
