    Ok I want to update my R4 firmware since the team is dead I have seen some custom firmwares. I want to know which one is the best. I heard some good stuff about YSMenu. Is YSmenu the whole thing in JAP or not. Should I update from 1.18 to YSmenu? Does YSmeny have more bugs then 1.18? Does it let you play more games that don't work on the 1.18 firmware. Is it user friendly? And are there any good videos that show me someone using the YSmenu so I could see how it works.

    Is there a video when a person is using the YSMenu on his DS. What about the new menu that someguy made that looks like a PSP is that better than YSMenu.

    DSision doesn't load ROMs unless you already have a working version of YSMenu on your SD card. The same goes if you use Moonshell2 as your default menu system. These methods look pretty but cheats will not work unless you manually load YSMenu before loading a ROM.

    the skin thing for ysmenu+r4 isnt that bad. all you need are two pictures. mainly the background 1 and background 2 pics from a r4 theme. just use those instead of finding ysmenu specific themes

    Is it possible to use the old R4 OS instead of the YSmenu but it will still have the same Game Compatibilities?

    Also when is Menudo coming out?

    you can use the old r4 firmware as default and you can load up a .nds file that loads ysmenu. so you can have the both of two worlds (did i say that right? lol)

    when you're creating the ysmenu with the r4sauto, just pick it when it asks you how you want your ysmenu. you can have it as a firmware or a bootable .nds file.

    you should have kept the files kuz yasu does update the ysmenu once in awhile. all you need is the r4sauto.zip, ysmenu version by date and follow the instructions in that one ysmenu topic. seriously, its easy. the program asks you how you want your ysmenu and you just pick it out. you can do all this under 5 minutes

    No, menudo is not released yet, and it will only allow you to run homebrew, you will have to have YSMenu working for something like that. And DSision2 allows you to play commercial games as long as you have YSMenu, please search the forum for R4YSAuto and you will see there is a program that helps you make a YSMenu package for the R4, I suggest making it a separate NDS file instead of running it as firmware because not all R4 carts will load games with YSMenu as the normal firmware. But yes, you can play more games with YSmenu than the R4 menu. Also DSision2 is not lame, it's pretty awesome, it has a good theming engine and the coverflow for the iPod theme is ingenuious

    Also can I just have the Ysmenu but keep the old skin so I could boot the games up with YSmenu loader with the old R4 OS? Or I have to make it a firmeware which will not let me go the regular OS or Nds which is the same thing as firmware exept I do go to the OS but I can not boot the games straight from the OS I need to run YSmenu.
