    Been using R4 1.18 since forever, then I found out about YSMENU, but realized that hasn't been supported in a year either, though it does fix games not working on 1.18 (Have not had a problem with that though), I also just found out today that there is an "unofficial", I take it R4i is not the official R4 team, that works with R4 as well, 1.24.

    What do you guys recommend, using YSMENU or 1.24?

    I was also in the same situation as you, ysmenu was updated on the 13th March, not a big update, but one none the less. I would go with ysmenu

    Really? I don't see anything on the YSMENU homepage about it being updated on the 13th?

    YSMenu stopped being developed a long time ago by Yasu. What you have linked is a modified YSMenu & a rom site. Bit of a "double-header" there, congrats!

    oh that. that is not yasu's official work, it is just a precompiled version of YSMenu (which yasu forbids precompiled versions, not that he would have made any updates anyway) made to look and work like the 1.18 r4 firmware. if you are so used to the official r4 firmware i would suggest this.

    and it works with pokemon Soul Silver up till you get 3 badges.

    I am in the EXACT some position as TC. With all the new games coming out, I don't think the old 1.18 can hold up for much longer. I've tried YSMENU before, but decided to stick with the old firmware as YSMENU is unofficial. Well, that is, until I found out the official firmware is not in development anymore. So then I found the 1.24 unofficial firmware. So which is it? What is the best firmware?

    It doesn't matter when YSMenu was last updated; is uses unofficial DSTT firmware to keep games working. Unofficial DSTT firmware 1.17a12 came out around December 5, 2009, and some minor updates to extinfo.dat (fixes some games with anti-piracy) have come out since then. Use YSMenu.
