    Before I start, I would like to say I legally own a copy of Pokemon Black 2 (bought it the day it came out :D.)

    So I'm trying to run Black 2 on my R4i card (this one)
    I'm running the game on YSMenu firmware and the game runs perfectly fine. No sign of lag or anything like that, however when I try to save the game will freeze, which is quite frustrating :(

    I've researched this topic lots, however most posts are outdated / do not work. I was wondering if anyone had some sort of fix, as the game is nearing 5 years of age. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Have you tried using a patched ROM?

    AP Patch? It didn't work. I used a xdelta patch named "PB2-AP_Patch.xd."
    When I try to use it, an error appears that says "target window cheksum mismatch: XD3_INVALID_INPUT"

    Is there any reason why you're using YSMenu instead of Wood?

    I have the same r4 card.You have to run dsiware games through the stock kernel since ysmenu doesn't run them correctly.Take the stock kernel and rename it r4.nds,then run it through ysmenu.

    The nds-card.com page talks about its compatibility with Wood, so I wasn't sure.

    So I did this, but when I try to load Black 2 it brings up "load rom errcode=-5"
    Was I supposed to overwrite the files when I copied them over?

    I managed to fix it by downloading this firmware
    from the website.
