    So I formatted my SD card (i know, i know) and now no firmware I find will work.

    WoodR4 gets stuck on Loading, making it a sure thing that my R4 is a clone. Here is my R4:

    I've tried RGF's kernels, and using the R4SDHC kernel I've booted into TTMenu, at which point it attempts to install YSMenu. From there, I just get a constant white/black screen, with occasional loading bars.

    I've also been to Linfox and tried R4 III SDHC (stuck on normal boot), R4New (stuck on loading), and R4 SDHC firmwares (2.10T and 1.32 result in stuck on normal bot). None of them work, and most firmware seems to have disappeared.

    Can someone help? Thank you!

    !!! Great news! v1.19 seems to boot fine. Any idea why only older versions work?

    EDIT: v1.23 also boots fine, but trying to open Pokemon Ranger results in a white screen. How would I update to YSMenu?

    EDIT EDIT: v1.30 is the highest version that still boots, and I think that's what I had before. I'd love to update to something newer, but it's not a major issue now.

    Thanks Linfox and assorted posters here, including RetroGameFan, Yasu, etc.

    I got Wood to run, but no games would run :( This is on the same card. I want to do what you're doing :(

    Teach me YSMenu, somebody. Or, more preferably, Wood on R4 SDHC.

    Hey! Wood won't work on R4 SDHC, unfortunately. After testing 13+ firmwares, only v1.19-v1.30 firmwares boot up.
