The R4 DS is a media cartridge for Nintendo DS that allows users to download and play home-brew and emulated games on their system. The cartridge can also be used to emulate the Codejunkies Action Replay DS cheat cartridge, letting players activate cheat codes to make games easier or harder. This is done by downloading and running Codejunkies' software to access their freely-available list of cheat codes.
