I need help finding the kernel for the card I uploaded a picture of. I've tried to follow a lot of different tutorials but all of them didn't work.
It's one of those notorious .hk cards that everyone hates on this forum, but every other cart is sold out haha. I'm using this card on an old NDS lite, so I'm not worried about 3ds firmware updates or anything.

Other things:
I'm using a Sandisk 32 GB micro SD, but I can downgrade to a smaller one so that shouldn't be an issue.
Everytime I boot, I am greeted by the cannot open _dsmenu.dat
I sure hope this cart isn't just defective.

The kernels from the r4isdhc.hk website archive don't work unless I'm just installing them incorrectly. I am placing all of the extracted files from that archive into the root of the SD card and have a folder called "games" for my backup roms.

I have since found the correct kernel. If anyone needs it just message me and I will send it to them.
Slap the file in GBATemp's download section, friend.
Be the legend we know you are. Also, in the description, post the image of the card, you smexy person.

Hello! Can I have the kernel too? I have the same card as you and it's not working with any software I try

Hey there! Just got one of these carts as well and am running into the same issue. Could someone share the kernel with me? Thanks ahead of time.

Do you can send me the link please?
Hi, I'm the owner of that repository. It has since moved to here: https://flashcard-archive.ds-homebrew.com/Ace3DS+_R4iLS

I don't think the link will break again, I haven't really changed the folder structures since the move to the DS-Homebrew GitHub organization. We made a proper website for flashcard-archive and the kernels were thus broken again. Fixed it again in case someone looks it up.
