    Thats a funny google answer and all. but the search did not turn up any answers. I am sure that some people that are experienced with the R4 sdhc inside and out will be happy to help people who are newer to the gadget like myself. I am curious about this question as well

    Works perfectly on mine, just keep in mind if your using R4Yauto or however it goes. To use option 2 as the R4sdhc will need to boot it after loading the normal R4 firmware.

    I helped this guy out get YSMenu on his R4SDHC so I'm not entirely certain as it was over msn but I think you need to put all files in the root since I gave him my YSmenu but it was made for R4DS, and all the files are in folders.

    My question is then...

    Do you get the compatibility for games from the R4 fw or the YSmenu fw ?

    Its a replacement firmware, so you get the compatibility of YSMenu (which is DSTT I believe).

    Actually, I believe that the R4 SDHC menu is based of YSmenu. So I can say that it will work and that it will probably have exactly the same compatability.

    Even though I start YSmenu from the official R4 fw as the poster I quoted said?
    Isn't YSmenu then running like any homebrew under R4 fw ?

    Well... YSMenu can run in 3 modes
    1). Firmware Replacement -- Completely replaces your cards Firmware (_DS_MENU.DAT).
    2). Self-Booting ROM -- Packed as a NDS ROM that will automatically start up.
    3). Normal Game ROM -- Packed as a NDS ROM and must be run like any normal game.

    I could be wrong, but I believe all 3 will end up with the same result:
    Increased compatibility based off DSTT(?) while YSMenu is running.



    It seems Clones cannot use YSMenu as a firmware replacement, so they're stuck with (self-booting) NDS ROM.
