    I just bought an R4I (I know it's a fake now, but still need help) After I switch on my DS I get the first touch screen for about a second then it goes straight though to this kinda white screen with 'MENU [?]' on it.

    Anyone know if I can fix it, and if it's my R4 or my micro sd? (sandisk 2GB - if it helps)

    since ur getting menu wriiten in red its most probably a dstt clone seaarch the downlaods section for ttds v1.17 fake killer disabled and copy the ttmenu.dat to the root of yourcard then downlaod the official firmware from ndstt.com and copy everything except ttmenu from ther I REPEAT DONT COPY TTMENU FROM NDSTT.COM SINCE YOUR CARD IS A CLONE IT WILL KILL YOUR CARD after that copy games music and stuff and play

    Actully, it's not a TTDS clone. It's an R4 Clone.

    Check on the website:

    http://www.r4i-sdhc.com/indexe.asp

    And a firmware is a program that actually allows it to run. It contains the code and without it, it wouldn't work. Next time, search button please.

    Wow, it's cheap, but kinda a rip off if that's a TTDS clone since the TTDS is 5 bucks to you guys.

    Oooo, 2 posts till 500!

    And the fact that there are 3 alternative firmware and a fast loading are pretty good.

    So, got it to work now?

    I think your R4I is just a fake DSTT card!Instead of the "offical kernel",you can use DSTT card's kernel(the newest one is 1.17a01)!

    He's got it working already so what's the use suggesting firmware?

    And 2nd of all why suggest DSTT firmware when you don't exactly know what R4i-SDHC it is, as said there are like 7 different types of which one is a DSTT clone, so again why?
