    Hi

    I'm using a regular NDS, an R4 card and the Wood R4 Kernel.
    I traded some Pokemon between White and Black as my friend was missing a few. Afterwards, I started going about the task of applying a cheat for the Pokemon I'd given away. I already had 4 of the 5 codes needed, so when I pressed Y and then pressed X (whilst in the menu of the kernel) I could apply the necessary code/codes.
    Today I updated my usrcheat.dat file with the last code. Turned on my DS, pressed Y whilst highlighting Pokemon White, then when the next menu came up and I pressed X nothing happened. I checked the settings for the game, turned on cheats, and tried again. Still nothing.
    Anyone have any idea what I might need to do/am doing wrong?

    Not familiar with the Wood UI.
    Is the cheat list not coming up, or what's the issue?

    So, with the Wood UI - when you're highlighting the game you are about to play, if you press Y, a 'File Info' menu pops up with three options. X = cheats, Y = Settigns, and A = OK. When I press X normally, the list of cheats will appear. However, when I press X now, nothing happens. I can still access Settings when I press Y though.

    Did you try putting your old cheat DB back on?

    If that works, there's something wrong with your new DB.
    If it doesn't, there's something wrong with Wood, and it'd be a good idea to reinstall.

    Looks like it could be the DB - put in a different one and have not it to work. Thanks all.
