    Firstly, hello to all :>

    I have just received the R4i SDHC Gold Pro 2016 flash cart ( I have updated the kernel to the latest official FW - v 3.8b (2016/09/2).

    Everything works great so far but I am having issues with Pokemon Black/White and BW2 backups. I am assuming that it is to do with the DSi Enhanced features of these games? Not sure if these cards have a definitive compatibility list also?

    I have tried messing with the settings i.e. No DRM/No soft-reset/RTS off and even AP in the cheats. I have tried trimmed and untrimmed ROMs and also formatting the card. The save files also seem to be the correct size and I have tried using my old saves and allowing the card to create new ones to no avail.

    Does anyone know if it is possible to get these games working? I have noticed people mentioning YSMenu etc. but I am unsure if using this would help me with this issue?

    Thanks in advance :>


    EDIT: Fix for anyone else who was having this issue:

    I contacted '' (website that I ordered from) and they sent me a link to an older kernel as per email below.

    'This is correct firmware.

    Unzip into sd card boot to try again.

    R4isdhc GOLD Pro'

    This kernel works as long as the date on the device is put back to anytime before September 2014. (Tested with Pokemon Black and Pokemon Black 2)
