    k, well I tried reformatting the microsd...it got only a bit better. Almost all my r4 games freeze after playing like 20-30minutes.
    But there's something I experimented with...
    I noticed that my trimmed roms froze more often than my untrimmed roms.
    So does this mean that the r4ds trimmer overtrims the roms?
    All HELP is APPRECIATED. Thanks in advance! [​IMG]

    eliminate that trimmer and try something else. I never had such problems with tokyotrim.

    come back if it's not that. good luck!

    When the games freeze and you reboot your DS, does it have problem detecting your R4? Could be the contacts.

    If all the games you're playing freeze after 20 minutes or so, the problem might lies on your cart, or the microSD at best. Trimmed ROMs works perfectly theoretically, but I heard R4DS trimmer uses a technique that might cause a problem.

    Anyway, try to format your microSD, use the latest firmware. Also, what's the state of freezing? My Resident Evil cannot be played, but I CAN soft-reset it. When the game freezes, try to soft-reset it. If it works, the problem lies on your ROM. If you can't soft-reset try reset your NDS, if your NDS recognizes R4 straight-forward, the problem is in your ROm too, if it doesn't, the problem lies on your R4, the connection should be lost. Try ejecting it and blow air with your mouth to the slot-1 slot and your R4, it sounds absurd, but it works for me. try to eject the microSD and re-insert it again too

    yes I stopped trimming the roms and they still freeze but less than trims. POkemon dungeon 2 never froze on me, but castle vania and elite beat agents, and most of my other games freeze on me after a while( even though I use kingston1gb Jp and I have firmware 1.13)). So I think it's the contacts. So can any1 help me (give me instructions) for cleaning the contacts please, cause I tried unscrewing the back screw on the r4, but it wont open...
    Any help appreciated and thanks to all who replied [​IMG]

    what firmware version are you using? have you tried using the r4 firmware on you m3ds simply? (requires patching.) maybe the m3ds simply firmware is not as up to date.

    It's not usual that M3Simply is out-of-date M3 team releases new kernels a few days after R4 team does, so M3Simply v1.18 has most likely came out.

    If you are still interested in using a rom trimmer, try EZTrim. I have been using that for my R4(same as M3simply) and no problem.
