    I think it may be a clone...but regardless.

    As of right now, whenever I go to the game menu it crashes...
    The label for the actual flashcart reads

    R4
    Upgrade
    Revolution for S
    (NDSL/NDS)
    www.R4I-SDHC.com

    Anyway, it did this once before and I fixed it by deleting all of my games, but now its not working at all...

    Away from you.
    I'd recommend tossing your pile of junk away and getting an Acekard 2i here.

    (Obviously you can tell I'm saying your card is a clone)

    Oh, and, um... if you have a DSi, you didn't go to the DSiWare shop since September 29-ish or so, did you?

    Well damn.

    I was hoping to keep it working and use R4 Wood... I never noticed the typo of DSL on the label...

    How unfortunate...

    And I don't have a DSi.

    I wish the shipping for an Acecard varied somewhere in between 5 days and 5 weeks [​IMG]

    Your clone's using different hardware, Wood won't run on it natively, so yeah another cart is your best bet.

    If it crashes, it means your system files are corrupted or not adapted for your card.
    Backup your games/homebrews + .sav, format the card then copy your original kernel files.

    Try it again, if it does work you are fine.
    Also, you can try to put YSMenu/TTDS on it

    Now I am getting the error of "? Menu"

    Most of the tutorials seem to lack links or have horribly outdated ones... if anyone can provide me a bit of help, that would be excellent...

    I also have no idea where I got my original kernel files, as I thought I got them from the official R4 website, but they aren't working either and are simply giving me the ? Menu error...

    EDIT: nevermind.

    Although following the tutorials, I still cannot get it to register a menu...

    Why don't you use the system files from the webpage of your "R4" card? It should work.

    www.R4I-SDHC.com is obviously one of the better supported "R4 cards".

    As he said, get your original kernel files (what is the name of your card? Should be a website adresse on it...)
    To use TTMenu, you need your original kernel besides it, then launch ttmenu.NDS.
    You could try to launch it natively without your "R4" kernel BUT you would need a copy of ttmenu.dat on root (/) and rename it as it has to be, meaning your "R4" bootloader name (R4.dat R4I.dat, R4.TP, iLL.iL, etc etc)

    This is a DSTT clone, maybe unofficial DStt firmware will work on it?
    Actually, Someone posted a thread on how to edit the firmware, if you post there someone might give you a DL link.
    It's in the R4 section

    This. Go to the web address on your cart, click downloads, and scroll down to the picture that matches your cart (2nd section I think). They still support your cart, and update fairly often.

    I ordered from GameKool during a Chinese holiday and I got my AceKard2i in 8 days.
    I would imagine that ShopTemp is very similar in terms of shipping times based on what I've read from others.

    Most reputable places that say 2~5 weeks is a 'cover your ass' time.
    Basically, if they say 2~5 weeks and it takes 2 weeks to clear customs + a week of actual shipping time you'll be prepared for the 3 weeks and understand, but if it gets shipped to you in a week -- faster than what they said -- you'll be happy, everyone 'wins' (you're happy and recommend it to your friends, they get recommendations and more sales).
    However, if they said it would take a week to get to you and it ends up takes two, then you'll be unhappy and that's just bad for business.

    Well my little clone seems to be quite capable...

    Using the firmware the site had makes it so I can play my Pokeymanz...

    So I guess there's no need for this topic anymore [​IMG] The issue was just me being silly and not reading my horrible label.

    Thank you for all of your help, I had been concerned it was a game I added at some point [​IMG]
