Hey there,

I have a R4itt v1.6 flash-cart and I would like your help to find a working kernel.
This cart is intended for NDSiXL, NDSiLL, DSi, NDSL and NDS.
It is not intended for 3DS.

The card itself is purple, and has a screw on its back.
The board reads r4itt from behind, and the flash memory chip is a Macronix/Kynix 25L1605AM2C.

I have tested the kernels from r4itt.net (web-archive) as well as others from the "retrofan collection"; none of these have worked. Also, the stuff from the "old wood" website did not work for me.

I keep getting a "menu error", a white screen with the cartoon of a red SD memory with a "¬.¬" face and the message "menu?"

I would appreciate your help!
PD. I have other working flash-carts, I just want to get this one going.

Are you sure the problem is an incorect kernel and not a faulty cart?
It seems you have tested most kernels that workt with most/all
r4 variants.

I am in the same situation, same error with the same R4 model.
If trying to run RetroGameFan's YSMenu, you need to use the files in DSTTi-Clone YSmenu, make a copy of TTMenu.dat and rename it to R4.dat.

This is the original kernel, but keep in mind that the compatibility is rather atrocious and it's highly recommended you get YSMenu working just for that alone (the R4iTT doesn't really offer much otherwise anyway.)

Can confirm YSmenu works too. I have two R4iTT 1.6 carts and both run YSmenu fine when renamed that way.

Should note it also works on 3DS up to 4 point something system version. Could always just install CFW anyway, who wouldn't in this day and age especially on GBAtemp?
