    Hi, I just sing up on this forum cause i got a problem.

    Here's everything about my r4

    -R4i gold
    - it's written V.1.4 on the box
    -it's written V.3.4 on the top of the home page
    -My dsi XL detect my r4 as "Alex Rider Stormbreaker THQ"
    -the website is www.r4igold.cn

    I just download pokemon black 2 but i can't load it cause my kernel's too old

    When i go to the websit there's only two version. I download them but i don't know how to install it .

    Thanks for your future answers !

    You generally just unzip it onto the MicroSD, replacing the files that are already there.

    I can't right now. But is it normal that there isn't any other file than that? (i decompressed it)

    Nope, normally the cart's software is one main file and a folder or two with other stuff.

    On the website it say that i have to copy the r4.dat and the moonshl2 file but they aren't there, so i suppose i don't have the right file. Could you give me a link for the most recent kernel for the r4i gold ?

    Thanks ! But when you say the "root", you mean in which folder

    You want the kernel.

    And the "root" means no folder.
