  Wood R4 card from r4ds.cn was born in the beginning of 2008. It was also called r4 ds card, r4 revolution or r4 0815 card.in early time. Wood R4 card is special designed for Nintendo DS console. It is the same size as original DS card., and supports most nintendo DS games. With a wood r4 card, players can enjoy games, music and movies without any other accessories. It largly simplied the process and benefited players. Millions of players were attracked by the flashcard revolution in 2008. by estimated, more than 50 million wood r4 cards were sold in 2008 and 2009.  Although wood r4 was hot in the beginning, it has 3 deadly shortages. Firstly, wood r4 card doesn’t support SDHC memory card. The capacity of memory card is limited within 2GB. It means, large size games are limited to run in wood r4 card, and the gaming speed is also limited. Secondly, wood r4 card is a primary product, it’s compatibility is not very good. some Nintendo games can’t run in it. Thirdly, wood r4 card benefited players but largely hurt Nintendo and the DS game developers. Being accused by Nintendo in 2009, wood r4 was forbided in Japan and some other countries. The production reduced, and the research team disbanded. Lacking of technical development and software upgrade, wood r4 ds card was slowly exceeded by some other flashcards. Wood R4 card is the preexistence of R4 series cards. Since wood r4 techincal team disbanded, some members created t their own branded flashcards, such as R4i-SDHC firmware, R4i gold card, r4i ultra card, R4 III and so on.. These new flashcards are the second generation of wood r4 card. The bugs were fixed, the compatibility was largely improved, and the gaming speed was largely increased. New R4 series cards not only succeeds to the function of wood r4 card, but also have many new functions. For example, they support SDHC memory card up to 32 GB, and support more video formats. As lack of kernel update and technical improvement, wood r4 card was in weak status in the fierce competition. It had to reduce the price continuously to earn the market. After several time of price cut down, the market price of wood r4 card is unbelievable now. It was cost about 50 USD dollars to buy a wood r4 card in 2008, but now, you just spend less than 4 EUR( contains shipping fee) to take it. Wood r4 card is really the cheapest flashcard in the world now. No matter what happened, this is really a good news for players. Every Nintendo fans can enjoy games, music and movies with only 4 European dollars. As we know, R4 ds team stopped to update the kernel since R4 V1.18 on April 24, 2008. Another team undertake the work of kernel upgrade. It is called wood r4 team. New wood r4 team update wood r4 kernel to fix new nintendo games. They also improve the compatibility.
