    Hmm, I have the same card. I have a temporary solution to the white screen because I had the same problem:
    1. Download Aura Launcher (or hbmenu)
    2. Extract the zip and copy the "Aura-Launcher.nds" file to the SD card.
    3. Launch "Aura Launcher" on your R4i.
    5. Select Mine DS Emulator version and click 'A' to launch it.

    See if that works. And, if you get a chance, could you post a picture of the red screen with all the numbers? Thanks.

    It should work as homebrew on the 3DS, however it doesn't utilise the extra functionality. If any 3DS developer wants to, I'd be willing to help, however I can't myself as I don't have a 3DS :).

    Here's the link I forgot to include. And you can actually set Aura Launcher as the default, however it comes with both disadvantages and advantages:
    - Better homebrew compatibility
    - Faster loading
    - Commercial ROMs do not work

    We've just released version 0.3.1, which fixes a number of bugs, improves some internal code, and adds water splashes.

    The next release will probably be v0.4.0, and we're planning on adding localisations into various different languages, as well as adding in some more survival features.

    Enjoy!

    cool! a new version! Downloaded to the both my DSi's SD card, I will post back with results this weekend. I'd offer to help with the translations but google translate probably has better spanish translations than I. No se espanol por que no tengo la classe de espanol para diez y seis anos. (I dont know spanish beacause I havent taken a spanish class for 16 years; i think thats what I said haha.)

    anyway, this project has really progressed since it first started and its been interesting watching it grow! good job!

    Mine DS now has a new lighting engine! Besides speed improvements the advantages are brighter torches and more lighting detail in dark areas. Here's a comparison:

    The update hasn't been released yet but CoolAs is close to finishing localizations meaning it's getting closer :).

    Oh, I assumed there was a download link in the OP for it, oops.
    I can't even find my flashcart, anyway.

    Sunlight now spreads much better and darker blocks have even more detail now. Here's another comparison between the old and new engines (The brighter one is the new engine). Both images have the same blocks but the old engine won't even illuminate the horizontal opening near the top that is apparent with the new engine.

    And CoolAs has made German translations for 70 out of the 110 blocks :D. BTW, this is what it looks like when development goes wrong xD.

    With the recommended/FAT version, make sure you extract the zip directly onto the SD card. So afterwards you should be able to see the "data" folder sitting on the SD card. If it still doesn't work can you send me a picture of the red screen when running the "Emulator version"? Thanks :).

    Yes, try the Emulator version with a different launcher such as Auru Launcher. To try with the new launcher, copy the file, "Aura-Launcher.nds" to the card and when you start up your R4, choose Auru Launcher. Finally, run Mine DS from there. In the mean time I will try to figure out what happened.

    By the way, what's the full name of your card? Is it just called an "R4" or is it a different version such as an "R4i SDHC"?

    Thanks, and when you tried the launcher before did anything different happen? And more importantly, did Auru Launcher crash beforehand?

    when i tried the launching the game through aura launcher, the top screen remained the same but the red screen was presented on the bottom.
    the launcher itself was working fine, but no matter what i try launching it does the same.

    thanks for helping
