    There are several carts that can autoboot into Moonshell
    It might work using this package
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/maio-moonshell-all-in-one-for-r4s.295514/
    But the Wood R4 is a bit outdated (up to date on a standard R4, outdated for the R4i Gold(+) and I am not sure of the loaders will work on the R4i Gold+. I am currently away from my own R4i Gold+, so I can't personally test any of these files until this weekend.

    i remember doing this but its been so long ago but iirc you have to rename the file and once you boot the card it will boot it if its present

    did you boot using the file above?

    back in the day using my old r4 you could autoboot by naming to default.nds or boot.nds, i dunno what kernel your r4 is running, though that _ds_menu.dat should allow you to boot directly in to moonshell, but you will be running moonshell instead as your r4 kernel. as i used moonshell before mp3 players and smartphones became everyday commodities i had it able to autoboot straight to moonshell after the cart and kernel booted (no r4 menu), though im talking about 5-10 years ago, it also depends on who makes the card since they can "lock" the card from loading other kernels (r4isdhc.com cards do this which are dstt(i) clones not r4)
