    hiya,

    I now have my old ds working with luma, running 3ds games, and regular 3ds games (through r4 gold)

    I set my brothers up, and after getting 3ds games running, my R4 does not work on his old ds xl.

    Just crashes when booting up, Is there any reason why this could be happening?

    1. Don't you mean DS games via r4i gold?
    2. R4i Gold 3ds or r4i sdhc gold pro?
    3. What website does it say on the r4i gold ?

    1. That is an r4i sdhc dual core, not gold pro.
    2. Do you have the regular kernel or wood kernel?

    Did you download the gold pro kernel or the dual core kernel?

    Then probably your twl firm is corrupt or [try that] install the newest version of luma 3ds again.
