The ORIGINAL R4 DS - was a real Revolution 4 DS

 
 
 

R4 DS Review

 

Original R4 DS or Revolution 4 DS was the First and by far the best known SLOT-1 DS Rom Flash Card. Before it users had to use GBA Flash Cards + a PassMe card or install Custom Firmware on their DS to play NDS ROMs, but R4DS changed all that with a simple way of bypassing copy protection on the NDS and playing NDS game backups straight from a low cost micro SD card in a R4 adapter. (before that Flash Cards came with built in Flash Memory that was way more expensive than regular consumer microSD cards). R4 got so popular that even NINTENDO started calling all DS Flash Cards R4 Cards. Eventually this popularity led to the R4 Teams demise - dissolving and stopping support for the Original R4 - BUT and it is a big but - this left a vacuum that was filled by hundreds of copies / clone R4 cards and even more copies of DSTT and AceKard Flash Cards that came rebranded with the R4 in the title. R4 II / R4 Gold / R4 Upgrade / R4 Hyper / R4 3DS etc. I could go on but you get the idea.

 

Now for a while it was a BAD idea to buy an R4 Clone as it was likely that some software on it will not work as on the original and that there will be no or bad support for the card, but that has changed. Cards like R4 SDHC and R4i SDHC RTS not only improved upon the original design, but have moved it forward far bound what the original team has imagined. Also the original old R4DS cards and exact copies / R4 clones now once again have good - up to date firmware that make them compatible with nearly all NDS Games and DSi Games in DS mode. Wood Firmware enables Wii-connectivity, Cheat Codes Database, Themes, Short-cuts and most other features the advanced and more expensive AceKard R.P.G. flash cards firmware did. And WOOD firmware for R4 is continuously updated even now in 2010 tweaked, bugs fixed, and gale loading optimized.

Bonjour Tout d'abord je tiens à félicité votre société, parce que, dans un premier temps, ma commande a été livrée en 3 colis; le premier contenant 1 carte R4DS, alors que sur le bon de livraison du paquet était inscrit 2 cartes R4DS; bien que sur le bon de livraison il y avait une annotation qu'il y aurais un second colis Je me suis permis de vous contacter, pour vous prévenir de cet oubli, d'où nous avons eu un échange de e-mail. dans un second temps, j'ai reçu un second colis comportant cette fois ci 3 cartes mémoires de 2Go et une carte R4DS. Et dans un troisième temps j'ai eu mon troisième colis qui contenait la dernière carte R4DS. Le temps d'expédition entre le premier colis et le troisième colis a été de l'ordre d'une semaine ou 7 jours. Donc pour une première prise de contact avec votre société j'ai été agréablement content, d'autant plus que vos prix sont très compétitifs et que vous maintenez vos engagements avec vos clients. Je recommande vivement votre site et en somme je vous dis BRAVO

I received the R4 card, albeit a little late, however it was well packaged and well presented. It performs extremely well and the supplied T-Flash card made downloading and installing the firmware easy. I have had no problems with the supplied product and would recommend it to anyone with a Nintendo DS. In fact I will be purchasing another card this very day. Regards , Derek Hampson
