You could go to r4li (here) and download the 1.23 kernel for the R4, and then get ysmenu. YSMenu has a lot better compatability with games and homebrew (sometimes) and it's really easy to put on if you use r4ysauto or a2h's ysmenu generator thing.
I have been using it for a year....perfectly, other than certain roms do not play..."CANNOT LOAD DATA FILE" or something like that. I have been advised by a colleague to try upgrading the firmware. As a new user I haven't figured out how to upload pictures to the forum. R4 card is a black and silver case with R4 revolution for DS lettering.
Oh dear, One of the ones i dont know how to do properly, Where did you get the firmware you have for it now? And what size microSD are you using, if its 2GB, Maybe you have a legit R4. Meaning not a fake copy like most.
So what firmware is on it right now? if you know.
And did you get it off a site, if you did, thatmight help me.
You guys are the business......wow, fantastic, .........all non playable games are now working......many, many thanks.....all I need to do now is do the same for my 2 grandsons...I will be the best grandad ever....WICKED.
