    Hello! I haven't used my R4 in like 4-5 years, and somehow I found it not working. I tried following guides by RetroGameFan and also tried? finding my kernel online but I don't know if i'm finding the wrong one or if my kernel exists anymore.

    Here is a picture for reference. If anyone is able to help I would really appreciate it because i don't want to lose all my progress on all my .SAV files for all my games.

    Can you post a screenshot of your SD card's content?

    It's not an original R4, so Wood probably won't work.
    There are a bunch of kernels for two different "R4 Upgrade" carts here, try them both: https://www.linfoxdomain.com/nintendo/ds/

    edit:
    It seems not to be an original one. You can try the kernel from r4i-sdhc.com or you can try a smaller MicroSD card with only 2GB or less.

    No, it is not. The original R4 doesn't say "Upgrade" on it. R4 Upgrade does support SDHC.

    Yeah sorry, I missed that. I edited my previous post.
    To OP: wood won't work with it. But you can try to find a kernel on the linfox page jdbye posted or maybe the kernel from r4i-sdhc.com works.
