    Have you tried changing the date to 2010 or something? (Try it)

    Have you tried any other game carts in the slot to check it's not that?

    If the slot is fine, did you format the sd card properly when installing the new software?

    That seems to be an ORIGINAL R4...
    (No sd-hc anywhere to be seen)

    If it is, then the error should obviously be you trying to use an 8gb SDHC card when the MAXIMUM data a vanilla original r4 can handle is NON-SDHC 2GB.


    Try using a normal 2GB or below mSD card and putting the kernel files on it, there's no known way to run +2gb sd cards on the originals r4, either stock kernel or wood kernel.


    I'm curious, why would this do anyhting at all?
