    If you want to use Moonshell as the main kernel, you should try out MAIO. It uses Moonshell as the front loader and boots roms through Wood R4.

    So, is there a common problem reported for the touchscreen not working and might whatever moonshell program i attempt to instal be a part of the problem with my touchscreen not working for the R4 unit?

    If you want full rom compatibility I recommend you use RetroGameFan's kernel.

    What is the URL on the card, better yet does Wood R4 work on it?

    There should be a URL near the bottom of the card, if there isn't, then card is a 1.1 clone of the R4. Which means it's pretty much the same hardware as the original R4, just in a different shell.

    Since it works with Wood R4, that pretty much confirms that it's a 1.1 clone.

    retrogamefan's kernel does not require moonshell, but it does give you compatibility to any rom.

    Wood R4 has the same compatibility as Retro's files.

    Wood and the Retro files are for loading DS games.

    Moonshell is for viewing pictures, music, and some video.
