    Ever since I upgraded to 1.11. My moonshell never loads. When I select it, the bar just stands still and I have to turn off my DS.
    I even tried downgrading to 1.10 and my moonshell works. Anyone know how to fix this problem?

    I had this problem and after reading somewhere that i had to remove the .sys for moonshell and let it generate it again.

    I don't have a moonshell sys. file thing. Or I cant really find it. I only have a DS Menu Sys and I tried deleteing that but it didn't work.

    when you upgrade to 1.11, you should erase the file that the r4 creates at the root of the card, so r4 can create a new one...

    "_DS_MENU.SYS"


    Delete that everytime you update the R4.

    Are you sure you deleted the "_DS_Menu.SYS" file and not the "_DS_Menu.DAT" file?

    Try formatting the whole card with the Panasonic SDFormatter Version 2.0 and doing a clean install of your roms, and R4 v1.11. If that doesn't work then I don't know.

    It just seems to me that he hasn't deleted the .sys file, it's the exact same 'problem' that i found when i installed v1.11, but i just deleted the _DS_Menu.SYS and it solved it, since the R4 firmware creates a new one upon boot anyway.

    If you cant see which _DS_Menu is which, the .SYS file is bigger than the .DAT file, if in doubt, delete both and copy the .DAT file from the updated firmware back onto your MicroSD.

    I have deleted my .sys file though. I really have. When I delete it and try it turning on Moonshell it still doesnt work.
