R4 For Nintendo DS's
 
Aye guys just bought my second r4 but this time it was way cheaper, anyways lets take a look: http://www.priceangels.com/R4_Revolu...ck__p2074.html

Its: Price :$3.19
:director: Thats fu*king amazing

Have you bought one of PriceAngels?
People are saying it takes 2 weeks or more to deliver, thats not a problem though.

Im not worryed if its a scam because only cost 3 bucks but i looked at this:
This was from a review.

Cons: nothing really, just make sure u dont abuse it, like step on it or get it wet just respect it like gold, because it is! p.s shipping for me was about 17 to get to my house from when i bout it, be prepared to wait, i live in cali just to give you some insight

17 Bucks for shiping when it says?~!: FREE SHIPPING

This is a clone of the real r4 aprently but it works just like one, anything i will need to know? Like the last i got one was maybe 1/2 years ago and i cant remember what i put on there i think it was a kernal of sumthing.
This is a clone so maybe i need to put something else on?~

Cheers :bigthumbup:

Any R4 you buy is probably going to be a clone (the company who made the original ones was sued into oblivion). If you get one, don't expect frequent updates to their software, if any. If you want a DS flashcart I'd suggest something else, like Supercard DSOne (or DSTwo) or maybe one of the Acekard products.

Ok thanks! Ive sent the money, but no email sent to me (It was ment to send to me 30 mins after buying, i just bought like 8 hours ago by looking at this forum time.. O.o scammed? )

Hey Bannanas. You wonīt be happy with a 3$ R4-Clone. As The 9th Sage mentioned - there are very few updates to the Firmware and OS of such Flashcards, so donīt expect newer games to work. I recommend a DSTWO too. I bought one four weeks ago and Iīm very pleased with it. Okay, itīs pricy since itīs new - 30-40$ (mine was 39€, free delivered) but itīs worth the money.

Yeah, I really love my DSTwo. Especially now that the SNES emulator is out.

Latest kernel of what? Even if it's compatible with 'original' R4 stuff, that stuff hasn't been updated in a while that I'm aware of. If it's a clone, chances are it runs on something entirely different (there's a lot of R4 clones that are actually clones of a bunch of different flash carts).

If you're lucky you'll get one that's entirely compatible with the original R4...in that case, you could run WoodR4, which is a lot more up to date in every way than the original R4 software would be.

Most homebrew developers don't use anti-piracy measures.

I like my 3 dollar R4 clone. I use it just for GBA games, though. I think it's supposed to be good with the Wood firmware. Or something, I wasn't paying a lot of attention to that.

Bannanas 09-30-2010 04:06 AM

So new games will work aye?
