Gotta be careful on some of the R4i cards- lotsa versions out there, lotsa different firmwares, and cards that look similar are not. Did you go to the website specified by the manufacturer? Might want to post front and back pics of card for identification purposes.

The front side says R4i RTS 3DS Revolution for Ds
(3DS XL(LL)/3DS/NDSI XL(LL)/NDSI/NDSL/NDS)
www.r4ids.cn
I bought it from dsflashcart.com
There is no writing on the back.

Wood R4 kernel is what you should be using- the site you posted above has a download link for it. Also, try reformatting the microSD card and reloading the kernel. If you have more than one microSD card, try a different one.

FYI, on the back of the card, look at the bottom of the card where you can see the contacts and the PCB board. At the farthest right, at the top of the opening you should see a number or letter on the PCB. If you just bought it, it likely will be a "D" (assuming they sold you the latest version of the card).

Alright it looks exactly like that, and I reformated the micro sd card and got the firmware ,but no effect as soon as i press the starting screen it goes black could it be the micro sd? Is it worth buying another one?

btw thank you for helping me
