    So I just got an R4 card. It says www.r4i-sdhc.com on the card, right below... well, let me just type what the card says. "R4i Upgrade Revolution for DS (NDSi/NDSL/NDS) WWW.R4I-SDHC.COM". I hacked a ROM of Pokemon Black(the Japanese version), and I want to play it on my DS Lite. The problem is, though, whenever I try to play the ROM directly, it loads for a little bit and pauses, saying: "load rom errcode=-4 Please reset system." I have the latest kernels and everything, and I tried things like DSTT and YSMenu, but it keeps on giving me a message that says "unsupported dldi name". I've done a lot of searching on the internet, but the closest I got was this thread: https://gbatemp.net/threads/is-it-possible-to-get-ysmenu-on-a-r4i-sdhc.155479/ I really want to play my ROM, but all of this is so confusing, because it's my first time doing anything with a flashcart. Can somebody please help me? I really need help right now.

    Okay, I tried it, but when I try to open TTMenu or YSMenu, the screens get weird and it says "can't load l2u", "can't load font", and "No Flash in Slot2". What am I doing wrong? By the way, the ROM I'm trying to play is an edited version of a Japanese Black ROM. I hacked it myself, so it's not something others would know of.

    If you have hacked a rom yourself, it will not work untill it is added to the DATs, so can you please send me a link to a patch of the rom hack, so I can add it for you

    How do I send a link of the patch? The only thing I have of the rom is the .nds file.
