I bought my R4i Gold from nds-card.com (R4i Gold 3DS Revolution) and they had loaded the firmware/etc onto the MicroSD for me. It's been working fine, except that the Rts and cheats don't work. At first the cheats would show up and let me pick some to enable, but the cheats would have absolutely no effect in the game. Now it just freezes whenever I press 'X' to go into the cheat selection. At this point I have to hit the HOME button and reboot the card. And the RTS mode doesn't work. Whenever I press 'LRABXY' to go to the RTS menu, the following options are shown: 'Save', 'Load', 'Reset', and 'Exit'. Choosing 'Save' or 'Load' freezes my card. Choosing 'Reset' closes the game and sends me back to the ROM selection screen. Choosing 'Exit' resumes the game. Atm I've disabled the RTS menu since it doesn't work. Could the fact that all my roms are trimmed (to save space) have any effect on the issues I'm having? Also, on a related note, could ROM patches (like translation or AP patches) affect the functionality of cheats?
