    How do I install themes on my R4? I used to have themes on it, but then they updated the firmware so i replaced it with the latest, but the latest didn't have the themes folder in it, and I'm wondering where I put the folder: In the _system_? And if so, where? Please help me. I already have some themes except I need help putting them in.

    When I got my R4 i thought the same.
    There is two ways
    1.Download your theme and extract all the files to the _system_ folder
    2.Make a folder called themes in _system_ and in the folder themes make theme01, theme02 so on (P.S. press select to change the theme when you are at the r4 screen(P.S. You can make the themes up to theme12(P.S. sorry for saying P.S. so much(P.S. I like saying P.S.))))

    Thanks for the mention of capitalisation - none of the videos or other help has mentioned that (I kept downloading skins, moving cart to DS, booting, hitting select to find no change - frustrating!)
