    I created the Themes folders & filled them with pre-made skins. But I still get the default skin and Select won't take me to the other skins/themes. What am I doing wrong? Thanx.

    Try and just replace the files instead of the folders (if thats what you did). I personally would delete all the pre-loaded skins folders (except #1) and replace the files in #1 with my own.

    It's themexx not Themexx

    i.e.:
    \ _system_\themes\theme01

    Also i'm not sure if this'll have an impact on it but for the theme folders label them as theme01-12 as when I had it labeled theme(name) it didn't work.

    Well I tried all of the suggested fixes (Thank you). No go. I did swap the menu.dat to get the wii sky. But no different themes I guess. Drats!

    mmm weird, would you mind posting a screenshot of your /theme folder and one of your theme01 folder? [​IMG]

    wow, that really didn't work?
    and you definitely put the _DS_MENU.DAT on the root of your MicroSD card?

    Hi

    I had a similar problem. The themes with the new kernal would work but when I loaded my own skins up came the original R4DS skin.

    The directories where correct.

    I decided to delete the _DS_MENU.SYS from the root directory and then rebooted the R4. All Work

    So maybe when updating your themes, delete the _DS_MENU.SYS and let the R4 recreate it when it boots up next time you turn your DS one.


    Hope this helps
