    I just got my R4i Gold 3DS today, and im having some issues with games.

    When i got it, i formatted my SD card, then downloaded the firmware at the top of the downloads section of r4ids.cn and pasted it into the root.

    Some games like the pokemon games work fine, but i'm having trouble getting Golden Sun, Love Plus and Pokemon Black 2 to work.
    When i run them i either get a red "Loading" on the screen, 2 white screens or 2 black screens.

    Any help?

    I believe Black 2 has a AP patch (Without it, you wouldn't get any EXP IIRC) Love Plus is English Patched. Golden Sun should be clean, i'll go check that again..

    Also, i have Wood v1.56

    You only need the patch if the flash cart's software doesn't support the game. Wood does, so you should not use the patch.

    Well. i tried out Pokemon Black 2 with and without the Patch. Both ended up with the black screen with "loading" in red letters.
    what should i do now?

    Use step 3 to check the CRC of the ROM after it's transferred to the MicroSD. If it stops matching after being transferred, then it's corrupting on the way. This is usually caused by a faulty MicroSD or reader.

    You should format your tf card with sector size bigger than 8KB.
    The games metioned by you is too big(bigger than 256MB).
