Hello everyone!

Found my old R4 card yesterday, and spent most of the night and this morning trying to get it to work again. I can remember that this one does have a timebomb on it, which is fine. but cant find the software to get it to work. I thought it was 1.84b but am only getting the red menu screen when extracted to the root. Ive attached the picture of my R4. I have formatted to fat32 and am using a known working 32gb microSD card. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

Hello.:)

You maybe can try the Wood one with the YSMenu:

http://old.r4wood.com/pages/R4i-SDHC-Kernel.html

or you can use the Multi Cart Update from here also with YSMenu:

Then the "Timebomb" should no longer a "barrier".:D

Good Luck
Thank you :)

Hello.:)

Do you mean the WHITE Screen with the "Menu ?" Error Message ?

Can you tell us what steps you have done ?

Please check the following:

- Please FIRST test your SD Card of Errors (for Example with the Tool h2testw )
- Format your SD Card with FAT32 please
- Copy then the content from this File on it:
http://old.r4wood.com/Kernel/f/YSMenu706 added Kernel 1.85b.rar

Thank you.:)

Thank you for your help. I have tested my SD card and all was fine. I formatted to FAT32 once more to make sure it was complete. I downloaded the file you provided and copied it to the root of my SD and am still getting the MENU? error. Thank you again
