    okay so i just bought a ds lite with an R4i gold SDHC, the box has the website

    http://www.r4i.ndsi.in

    now when i run the card it shows me 1.41 on the bottom right of the screen, i don't know what that means.

    can someone help me in upgrading this thing to the latest firmware with a guide? i am really a huge noob when it comes to this stuff i want to know that what is the game compatibility as well

    You don't need to worry about the 1.4.1 since you don't have a dsi. The 1.4.1 is the firmware of the dsi that blocks the card. And I recomend you to try and install WOOD r4 ( just google it)

    You have a few options here

    1) You can try using Wood R4
    http://filetrip.net/file.php?id=23723

    2) If wood R4 doesn't work download the firmware from the website in your post and copy all the files in the rar package onto the root of your sd card.
     
  4. Use this guide: http://gbatemp.net/t227742-new-users-guide...ting-up-wood-r4
    It's easy to follow and will improve the game compatibility helluvalot.

    If it doesn't work, download the latest kernel for your cart from here: http://www.r4i.ndsi.in/download/V2.2/R4GOLDv2.2_EN.rar
    It was updated on 11-02-09 so it should support all games. Check http://www.r4i.ndsi.in/downloads.htm regularly for updates.
    If you have any problems, feel free to contact me.

  7. Try formatting your micro sd with SD Formatter. After that, place a fresh copy of the extracted 2.2 kernel on your micro SD, nothing else and try running it again. Also, tell me the folders/files that are present on the root.

    i just formatted my card with sd formatter and copied the kernel files, its still showing me a white screen ... =S wtf? even though the files and folder are there right now

    edit: the kernel files are in the root and i even put moonshell 2.1 and update 1.41 in the root (Extracted OFCOURSE) in the root my card and still NOTHING =\ ... wtf is going on
     
  9. Can you try using a different micro SD? Also, try the 2.1 kernel and see if that works.
