    Reformat the card. Also, make sure you delete the _DS_MENU.SYS file whenever you switch to a different version of the loader (a new copy of that file will be created automatically).

    why do I have to delete it? and how do I format the card? =O =/ sorry
    if I sound newbie =O i'm somewhat new at this

    Thanks for the suggestion, I'll try it out =]

    EDIT: nope it didn't work, and i'm probably not going to reformat
    my card, last time I did, it didn't work anymore =/

    When I open it, some random chinese characters pop out
    in the touch screen and it saids R4 revolution on the top (which is normal)

    Have you tried the Chinese versions of the kernels? It sounds like you may have got yourself a Chinese version of the R4.

    The r4ds.com website in english doesn't have the downloads, but the Chinese pages do. Here is the download page.

    Note that you can get Simplified Chinese or Traditional Chinese versions, with two download links each.
