R4 Revolution 3, is it REAL?

I am an M3 buyer usually but thought I give R4 a go, I’m nice like that. So I decided to purchase 15, R4 Revolution III from Tecknet via Amazon as I heard they are the next best thing.

I didn't realise there was so much speculation over the product I ordered so I thought I would clear some questions up.

I have seen the original R4 packaging before and what the R4 Rev 3 arrived in was something quite different. The box was much smaller, the USB pen is the same but the label writing on the card is slightly different, it says Super Card in large writing and then under it in small writing it says R4 Revolution 3 for DS.

You can view the packaging here:

There is a website on the packaging that says

This is a genuine site and is in mandarin, you can get the latest SYSTEM FILE there for Rev 3 cards only, the system file from any other R4 site will NOT work on Rev 3!!! Believe me I've tried

This site doesn’t always connect for me, I sometimes get an out of service message, so keep trying.
If this card has a problem, for me it would be getting hold of the system file updates.

As for the SDHC, I can confirm that it will work with Sandisk 4gb cards and suspect it should with larger cards and other brands.

There doesn't appear to be any problems playing games on it, I downloaded all the newest games to check its compatibility and it ran them all flawlessly.

Last but not least, the question you all want to know the answer to, the question thats been on your mind since you began reading this info, thats right, you know what i'm talking about......


The answer is, I don't know, but I know this, it plays all games and runs SDHC cards
So the question really should be.......

Personally, I think it is a genuine product from the makers of the original R4 but looks to only be circulating in China as there in no UK site. Maybe Tecknet went over there and saw this product and bought it.

Anyway, I hope you found this useful


p.s I think the best rom site is

R4 revolution


Have you tried any original DS games in your nintendo since using the R4.

The reason I ask is when I tried some in mine they won't work. Do you have any ideas?

I'm not sure if it might be I loaded to many files for the original disk sent with the R4

Can you help??
