be carefull as they could be n5`s with a different sticker.

the r4 firmware can work on a n5.

try one and let us know

With reagrd to my last message - forget it - both R4's dont work!! They hang on loading - Ive tried a few things but nothing seems to get them going!! I will update but I advise anyone thinking of buying to hold off for now!!

Ok - after loads of messing about I have managed to get them working!! I had to use kernal 1.19 - I thought I had already tried it but obviously not!! Anyway It seems they are both OK now so well worth the price!!

This batch from Amazon seller look to be some sort of clone to me - The disc inside is just a pdf file burnt onto a mini dvd rather than a printed disc and the card itself is different from my other r4 that I bought from dealextreme last year!! But still it works so Im not complaining!!

the ones i have had recently, do not have the cd anymore, as the firmware is being updated to support new games all the time, but a leaflet is enclosed telling you where to get latest firmware from.
