    I am trying to get TWLoader working, but it just won't work (with my R4i 3DS). Can somebody link me to a trusted tutorial or a thread. I can't find anything in the wiki.

    The easiest solution is to just load it from twloader as if it were a retail ds cart. If you get stuck at a white screen then be sure "reset slot 1" is turned on.

    Tried it, it's still stuck, with just the white on the top screen.

    It works for me. Also, be sure ds flash cart support is disabled and Lock ARM9 SCFG_EXT is also off. Finally, be sure your flash cart works when loaded from the regular 3ds home screen.

    Is your flashcard a clone of a DSTT?

    No, it is a R4i 3DS RTS Revolution.
    Did you read the thread? You aren't making sense, I am trying to use a flashcart.

    Support for it is broken, as of v4.1.0.

    There are two ways to use a flash cart with twloader. The first is to download the pack for your flash cart and follow the instructions in "Run ROMs from your Slot-1 flashcard" which makes the roms on your flash cart show up in twloader. The second is just to run the flash cart itself as if it were a retail cart and use your flash cart's menu to select the game. In this case you just want to do the second one. If you turn on "show filename" and then go to the sd rom screen and press left so that it says something like "Slot 1 - NTR-P-CQFJ, Rev.00". That should work even if your cart is not supported.

    The wiki is outdated. Look at the OP of the TWLoader thread.

    My gold color R4i 3ds revolution, (NTR-P-CQFJ) works just fine in twloader 4.3.1 and bootstrap 0.4.1 but I am running it as if it were a retail cart rather than trying to use the twloader flash cart pack stuff.

    Running it as a retail cart works.

    What did you put on your flashcart. (Where did you get it from?)

    The official WOOD R4 V1.64 from http://www.r4ids.cn/r4i-download-e.htm . I have attached a pic of my flash cart so that you can be sure it is the same one.

    They appear to have just updated their wiki. I will try using version 4.1.0

    Yes, but there's a bug with the "Add Games" feature with this card.
    You're better off with a DSTT flashcard.
