    Can you explain what this is, where you got it from and exactly why it fixes the need for patching?

    It is just a r4 firmware.

    You don't need to patch the rom with arm7.

    Don't really know how it works...

    I've just checked your firmware and it's a prebundled version of YSMenu, hence the reason that it works without Arm patching. Yasu doesn't allow the spreading of a prebundled ready to download version of YSMenu, which is why Maikel created R4YSauto. Yasu will actually cease development of his replacement firmware if he finds people spreading it across forums so would you do everyone who uses YSMenu a favour and remove your download link please. And claiming someone elses homebrew as your own work is a big no-no on this forum.

    From the link here yesterday, the download was certainly NOT Y's menu.... did it get changed ?

    I can't test it cause I have no R4 about at the moment.

    The download certainly WAS YSMenu. I decrypted it and checked it with a hex editor.

    absoulutely not Y's menu... http://www.2shared.com/file/4550237/f14717..._error_fix.html
    uploaded from my desktop where it's been since I downloaded it yesterday.

    my guess is the original poster changed the download, but needing to open stuff in a hex-editor to see if it's Y's menu is really not needed, it's very recognisable from it .ini file usercheat.dat folder layout names etc etc.. they are most distinctively different from each other with just a few seconds glance at the files and folders.

    Alright, looks like I was wrong. I must've opened the wrong output.dat somehow (apologies to the OP) as that download definitely isn't YSMenu.

    I've just run this in a file compare util though and there are 510 bytes at the very end that is different. If you unpack the decrypted files all the unpacked files match byte for byte so I'm unsure of what the difference in data is or does. It's definitely a hacked version of 1.18, what the hack is though I don't know.

    The original poster claimed he created this, then he claimed he didn't know what was done, then he claimed he got it from a friend. It still smells pretty fishy to me but I will admit that I made a mistake in my first assessment of it being YSMenu. Using file names and structure isn't enough to guarantee it's not YSMenu though, the fake R4 Team released 1.19 which looked completely different file structure wise to Yasus firmware but opening it up in a hex editor showed the YSMenu strings at the end, which is why I checked this one in the file editor.

    Again, my apologies to the OP. Although I'd like to know where his friend sourced this from so I can find out what's been done and why it allegedly works. I don't think any veterans here will give it the ok until then, but anyone who wants to try it out should but at their own risk.

    This absolutely 120% works.

    I just need a person to say it does so people will trust me...
