I set my system date and rtc to 31 10 2019 (today in 2 years) and the flashcart loaded with a black screen and red text saying my firmware is expired
I haven't tried any other 2019 dates just today +2 years because im at school
can anyone else get that screen with a 2019 date?

If you want to avoid it, try ysmenu

just set time back to range year or buy new one next year
ysmenu is option but is fail to real system firmware
yeah it says it expires when i have it on 9/3/2019 and today is 10/31/2017 so its a long time until it happens but its kinda strange to chose that day

// Where the "alternative" kernel in that thread?
https://filetrip.net/file.php?id=33466
when you extract the rar, you need to extract the files in R4SDHC YSmenu folder and put to the sd card, afterwards download this file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3xxj84uplr97z1k/R4.dat?dl=0 and put on sdcard too //

If the team ever dies there will no longer be updates to the official firmware. that's why timebombs are BAD.

either use an unofficial kernel or just use it for NTRboot.

But the official kernel is crap anyways. Slow, stupid controls, this "battery saver" feature that turns the screens off that irritates me every time (I know that you can deactivate it) etc.
I know, I am just saing. Personaly I also have ysmenu on my gold pro 2017 (r4i-sdhc.com).

i actually like the official firmware over ysmenu so i just plan to roll the date back when it expires.

    Yeah back in my late teens I used to mow about 10 lawns every two weeks for $35 a yard. It was stupid big yards I knew where paying a lot more than that to lawn care companies in a some what up tier gated community a few blocks from the area I lived. Was great getting $700 a month with no bills at the time and good excercise too, now I have bills so I never have any money to buy things.

    @BigOnYa My most-hated game on the NES was gilligan's island. Couldn't figure out the controls. Played it on actual hardware. Super frustrating, and boring as shit.
