    I've got the RTS version
    and while it will run YSMenu, it won't boot directly into YSMenu. You have to boot into the RTS own software, then boot YSMenu like you're starting a rom in order to use it. Don't know if that means it won't work with this method or not, I haven't tried it yet.
     
  2. i guess there's no hope of having this work with an acekard 2i, right? i need to buy a new flashcard anyway

    Well I'm afraid that R4i-SDHC RTS 3DS is indeed not compatible with TTMenu :\ It just white screens when booting the cia. Very odd I must admit since like I said when running YSMenu.nds it opens perfectly fine.



    (Ignore music - Had to use YT audio swap since I accidentally had school stuff playing in the background)

    Ah, that's a shame to hear. I made a forwarder and then accidentally launched it (with nothing in the Cartridge Slot) and it also booted to just white screens.

    Tested with both Mario Kart DS and Pocket Monsters Black 2, Mario Kart worked perfectly but the Pocket Monsters forwarder will always show a "an error has occurred" screen. Will keep testing more games and report back.

    Because the HOME Menu doesn't like the TID your forwarder has. Use AREJ/JERA instead.

    Did you use the TWL Template for Pokemon Black 2 since it's a DSi enhanced game? Also, what card are you using out of curiosity?

    The icon would have nothing if it wasn't TWL, so yes.

    Ah, thank you. So, a question for something I don't understand. If the the TID comes from the NDS rom itself, why would it not be on the whitelist and need another TID? For the alternates you're suggesting, is it just one off the list at random or is there a way to choose a replacement TID?

    For a minute I was hyped as fuck. Then I realized it boots stuff from a Flashcart and not the SD. Fuck.

    Alright. One last question, any way to make a modification to load the DAT files from a sub-folder? With a lot of games it clutters the root of the SD card up.

    My card and its packaging is identical to the one in this picture:
    10357522-r4i-sdhc-v14-dsi-card-compatible-with-the-14-firmware.
    (I can't show you an actual photo of my card because I've removed the original label and replaced it with a custom-made one)

    @Bobesh8: Instead of looking at 0x230 for the TID, I just copied the 4-letter string from 0C to 0F (text after the game's name but before the "01"). It seems to work without the need for reversing the character order. Also, thanks for the tutorial, it makes booting DS games much more convenient now. :)

    How do I know if my DS flash cart is compatible. Its a Ace3ds plus. Also I have updated sysnand 11. Is there anyway around that or would i have to use 9.2 firmware?
