Hi there! Guess who's come back after a year to bother you! Seriously, it's been a while... but I'll make this quick: long story short, my R4i-SDHC (yeah, I know that R4DS with WoodR4 works better, which is why I finally have one of those as well now) stopped working because there's that old "wrong date/system date error/update your kernel" kind of error. Which wouldn't be too much of a bad problem by itself... if only the official site ever had the new kernel to begin with! To recap, I have a non-v1.4, standard R4i-SDHC, that is the last one to be found at the official site's download section (I won't link to it due to the site's rules). Currently, the only kernel that's available is the V.11c, which is the one I have on the flashcart in question. Problem is, the kernel I have now asks for an updated version, which isn't avaiable yet on the site. For now, I've set the DS's date to 2011, but that's a rather sucky loophole. And that's why I've come here, to bother you guys again or, more simply, ask for help. I've sent an e-mail to the site's staff, but most likely they won't notice it. However, here's an excerpt: "So, the problem is my flashcart needs a kernel that's not available on your website yet. I'd like to request either the kernel in question or some way to bypass the kernel check other than changing my console's date." The question is, how can I bypass the flashcart's kernel check? I tried to look for some files in the firmware's folders in order to spot the one responsible for said check (and therefore delete it), but to no avail. Thing is, I have an R4DS with WoodR4 which works perfectly with the AP-heavy games that came out later in the Nintendo DS's lifespan; however, I still need the R4i due to its SDHC support, in order to play the wider array of games that came out before the aforementioned AP craze. Can anyone help me with this, in order to avoid facing this problem later - no, in order to see the "update your kernel" message never again? I'd be fine with having to update the kernel, if it wasn't for the sheer lack of professionality on the flashcart's devs' part. If I can't even be sure that the obligatory update is backed up by actual updates on the official site, I might look for a workaround as well. Sorry for bothering, and thanks in advance to anyone who feels like giving me a hand.
