    Could someone help me? I'm trying to figure out which firmware I need in order to get my R4i to start working. In truth, I found it while rummaging around my house. A cousin left it and doesn't want it anymore. I have a Red/Black colored DSlite. A friend suggested that I might only be able to play it on a DSi. When I put it in my DS, I'm taken to my DS's normal start up menu and I'm able to select the thing in the DS cartridge slot but after that it's just an all white screen on both lower and upper screens. So I want to check here before giving up all together. Sorry about the image quality, my cell phone is old and terrible.

    [​IMG] The Front
    It says R4i Revolution for DS
    (NDSI/NDSL/NDS)
    www.r4i-SDHC.com.HK(I've been there. And there's no flash cart with the same image as mine. The only ones that looked remotely like mine on the website was one that had "Upgrade" under the R4i.

    In the image of the back of my card it says "R4i-SDHC". All in all, what I'm asking is, is this card only compatible with the DSi despite having "NDSL" written on it? Or is there no firmware at all for it. Or am I in the wrong forum. Help please.

    It's compatible with the DSL. As for firmware, I'm not 100% sure...

    That is the R4i-II flash card. What is the icon say on your DS Lite? It would be helpful for finding the right kernel. Is it Star Wars?

    YouTube Video

    Get the kernel HERE. :D

    I get nothing. Just a blank icon. And when I tape it, it sends me to this white screen.

    Your card is bricked if no icon displays on the main menu of your ds lite. I guess that's why your cousin didn't want it :P
