    Try this program:

    R4denc


    First patch the .nds file with the R4 dldi with this program:

    DLDI Patcher


    and this dldi patch:

    R4 DLDI


    "R4dec" is a batch file that will decrypt the _DS_MENU.DAT file or you can use the other included batch file "R4enc" to encode any .nds file to work as _DS_MENU.DAT.

    Just drag said .nds file over "r4enc.bat" and it will generate a new file called [whatthenameofyourfilewas].nds.DAT.

    Then just rename the file to _DS_MENU.DAT and put it at the root of your Micro SD Card.

    This may not work with all files but I like to use it. Go ahead and try it but make sure you back up your card in case anything goes wrong, that way you can just put everything back where it needs to be just in case.

    R4 Ultra is ak2 clone, can't use original r4 dldi.

    you can try akmenu.

    ps. _DS_MENU.DAT not encryption in r4 ultra.
