    Hi. It's my first here and i'm looking for help.

    Recently, i acquired a R4i3D 2012 working at any console, but i updated him to last version i think. So the japanese icon that was there before, turned out in a sponge bob icon and when i open the flashcard in both video games, a loading scene appear and both screens become white and not response. so i'm looking for help, to see that my flashcard can be played again.

    I think that the problem is likely one of the following:
    • Fake/bad microSD
    • microSD formatted to the wrong file system (should be FAT32 not NTFS or exFAT)
    • microSD is of a higher capacity than the flashcart supports
    • You deleted system files/folders that the OS needs to run
    • Bad flashcart (hardware failure)
    • Installed firmware made for another flashcart
    It's odd that it worked perfectly on both the DSlite and the 3DS before updating. The DSlite especially should boot all flashcarts.

    That's all I can think of, it's been a long time since I messed around with DS flashcarts.

    Try formatting the cart with SD Formatter tool and reinstalling the kernel

    if it's a big micro sdcard make sure it's formated to fat32 not ntfs or exfat
