    I know it's a little early to ask this, but there's a way to make a autobooting Moonshell2 on Wood R4? Like modifying the _DS_MENU.DAT by encrypting or decrypting it?

    Why not just make moonshell2 autoboot directly from the start and just try having the woodr4 as a separate nds file...(it should supposedly work)?

    I believe what you want to do is this: Moonshell Firmware + WoodR4 ROM Loading.

    While you can easily do the first part, I'm pretty sure the latter isn't possible... yet.
    You'd set it up like the 'normal' Moonshell+YSMenu setup -- dldi patching and encrypting Moonshell's directboot.nds file and then putting the loader app into the extlink folder -- but there is no loader for WoodR4.

    You can make a loader from wood r4 by decrypting the _DS_MENU.DAT with r4 crypt. The decrypted file will then load the wood firmware as an NDS file. The problem is there is no way to get R4_Wood to autoload a ROM. Without that functionality the created loader is useless.
