    I got my R4 a while ago. I have tried my animal crossing rom, but it lags. I have a high quality sdhc card I am using as well. Also, how do I use moonshell and skin it? What are some good homebrews I can use, as well as games.

    It is a r4i 3ds gold. Also, how do you put game saves on it?

    Safe,

    Grab the download (WOOD R4 V1.32 Released 2011-06-30) at the top of the page.
    http://www.r4ids.cn/r4i-download-e.html

    Saves are created automatically when running a ROM. Dumping ROMs and Saves from your own carts is a little more complicated. There are lots of tuts online and on this site. Just do your research.

    If your interested in moonshell then you can try MAIO from the link in my sig. Just click on the card.

    Edit:
    homebrew.
    There are loads of items in the homebrew bounty and homebrew sections in this site.
    emulators are fun. I like the standalone mame ROMs (1942, 1943, Pac and others), NeoDS is awesome, nesDS is goog fun.

    It lags because of the SD Card. See before I had a Sandisk SDHC 2GB card and it lagged at some places and actually quite frequently on Pokemon Black. Afterwards though I went back to the PNY SDHC 4GB card I had and all the lag went away. Just go to your local Staples or Bestbuy and grab a "PNY SDHC 4GB SD card" and the problem will be fixed.
