By "initial tutorial/training" I meant the introductory chapter of "Story mode". If you can't confirm that it crashes at random points, how can you say that? Where did you read that?
However as soon as I have time I will try it out more carefully.

Note: I must correct myself. I couldn't reload the save, and the one time it did load it, then crashed. Too bad!!!
Are you using R4i-SDHC? I use 2020 version (the yellow one, just like Ojama, lmao)

I think all YSMenu kernels for dstt cards are all the same in terms of "playability" (does this word exist?)

I think all of these non-compatible games on YSMenu run very well on R4i-SDHC kernel, just like Lufia, Yu-Gi-Oh! 2011, CoD Black Ops & MW3 Defiance, Inazuma Eleven, SMT Devil Survivor 2, and many other... But OFC with a proper AP patch or not. Some games crash when reading save file, and some games even do not save. These games need an AP Patch .ips file from TwilightMenu++ (all 2020 releases or lower) and must be used with a program named Lunar IPS (Lips).

But some will not be recognized by YSMenu, even patched with those .ips patches... I still prefer using YSMenu instead of R4i-SDHC kernel because this last one gives me a timebomb at oct 2024, also there are much more issues with R4i-SDHC than YSMenu.

@Isso_Non_Ecxiste Yes, I use the same flashcart as you.
Thanks for the explanation, but it's all stuff I'm already familiar with. I'll try to do a "Dual booting" YSMenu/r4i-sdhc kernel; then I shouldn't have any more problems. To get around the "time bomb" I'll move the DS menu date.

@Isso_Non_Ecxiste Could you help me with this? To do a "Dual booting" leaving YSMenu as the primary software, what r4i-sdhc kernel files should I copy? I will also need to rename r4.dat as .nds file, or am I wrong? Otherwise how do I access the (original kernel) r4i-sdhc menu?
Thanks. :wink:
Keep everything inside your SD. You just have to replace R4.dat. Download the latest R4i-SDHC kernel and copy & paste the R4.dat file to your SD. All done, now you have dual boot.

To load YSMenu, you need to rename R4.dat file from latest RGF's YSMenu, rename it for a name of your choice, but the file must be .nds.
Ex:. R4.dat > YsMenu.nds

Put it anywhere you want inside your SD, but don't inside hidden folders.

Enjoy ^-^

Actually, I wanted YSMenu as MAIN software and r4i-sdhc kernel as secondary, since I will use it very little. Thanks anyway. ;)

There is no way R4i-SDHC system being secundary. You can load it as secundary, but you will not be able to run any game or .nds file.
You have 3 options:
DS Lite: Run original kernel as primary and YsMenu as secundary, or you can just run YsMenu. There is a possibility using TwilightMenu++, but in DS Lite you will need Memory Expansion Pack....

DSi/XL/3DS/XL/2DS/XL:
Run original kernel as primary and YsMenu as secundary, or you can just run YsMenu. You can now use the other system TwilightMenu++, because since DSi, the hendheld came with more processing and memory inside. You can play all the games YsMenu don't recognize with TwilightMenu++ instead.

note: I never tried myself TwilightMenu++ since I'm DS Lite user, and I got trouble with the memory thing...

Try on a different, freshlz formatted class 10 micro SD card
My micro SD KINGSTON class 10 U2, and got trouble. Tried with SANDISK class 10 U1, trouble too. all cluster format 16kb/32kb. Because Moonshell2 recognize only 32kb cluster size or lower. 32kb is the best, because ROMs are read more fast because they use less disk sectors.

You actually don't even need the R4.dat from YSMenu at all. Just setting it up as secondary kernel as per RGF's instructions also works. The only special thing about the R4.dat in YSMenu is that it is designed as a boot file, but the rest of the code is otherwise the same. But if we aren't booting YSmenu directly... then no need to rename lol.
