    Just got this...

    http://www.r4igold.cc/wood_product.asp

    Downloaded the latest kernel listed.. 2.40a from here:
    http://www.r4igold.cc/wood_download.asp


    It appears to work.. I can load the menu, play games.. but get an error about moonshell when attempt to open "media" from the main screen..

    The error is.. (on a white screen at the bottom)


    Code:
    /moonshl2/reload.dat (some Chinese words)
    (some Chinese words)
    moonshl2_DirectBoot.nds (some Chinese words)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Loading "/moonshl2/reload.dat"
     
    Please start "moonshl2_DirectBoot.nds"
    when stopped on this screen


    The layout of the files i have are....


    legal_backup_game_1.nds
    legal_backup_game_2.nds
    _system_
    moonmemo
    moonshl2
    _ds_menu.dat
    _ds_mshl.nds
    change.log



    Couple questions....
    Is this truly the latest and greatest firmware available for me?
    How can I get moonshell to work?
    Is this card what you call a "fake" ?

    1 - No, that's an older hacked version of Wood with new loaders stuck in. Wood doesn't actually support that cart (which is why they had to hack an old version to get it to even run), you bought the wrong one.

    Notice that the official Wood releases state which carts Wood supports, and yours isn't there.

    2 - Download and set up an actual version of Moonshell, preferably one of the latest ones. These packed versions people put out with their carts tend to be old anyways. You'll just launch moonshell.nds like you would launch a game.

    3 - Yeah. You should always ask here before you buy anything.
