    Hi quite new to this have a R4i SDHC card with the 1.30 firmware. I'm trying to load a new skin onto the card and although the skin is showing alongside the originals in the menu it won't load them? Do I need to do anything other than paste the skins into the correct folder on the sd card?

    Lost of crappy R4 clones use only the internal skin, even though they say they can use custom skins and have the original R4's skin structure (folders 1~12).

    Make sure that your skin is correct:
    - ALL images present
    - Proper format/compression
    - Correct name/locations
    If that still doesn't work, if it is available, try backing up the default skin and overwriting it.
