    If the cart isnt updated how is it working on 7.1?

    Anyways, try reinstalling the latest wood kernel and hope for the best

    I assume he used another system to boot up the card... from what I deciphered you were able to get into the Wood menu but are getting white screens when starting games right? Download the update from the "firmware download area" page at the link below and run that .nds update file from the wood menu:

    http://www.r4isdhc.in/download_white_new2013/index.html

    You need both the kernel and firmware upgrade from this page, delete any traces of other kernels from your microSD first. BTW I know the card on that page does not look like your but it's the same hardware just different color shell and sticker.

    sorry i explained myself badly i updated the 3ds, the i downloaded the latest firmware for the r4 and installed it using my dsi, after that the wood kernel (1.62) would not work AT ALL for me but this kernel r4isdhc-yellow1.63 gets me to the menu but i still can't play games on it without it white screening, ill try your suggestions and see if it works though thanks! and i seem to have messed up the font on this post ._.

    "the current version and update version are the same don't need to upgrade." also the kernel on the page gives me a loading for about 5 seconds the a white screen

    You can flash the R4 with the "firmware upgrade" on that page. It's just a .nds file so copy it to your microSD and run it in your DSi. It will update your R4 for compatibility with up to 3DS firmware 7.1
