    Well, I have a fake R4SDHC that looks like the one from r4sdhc.com, but the firmware doesn't work. Wood runs, but can't load any games, the R4Clone YSMenu from RetroGameFan Multi Cart Update v6.56 (DualBoot) runs, but I get white screen on games (as with Wood).
    Tried r4sdhc.com's 1.34 firmware (the newest one that shows a picture that looks like mine), but I get a black screen after Loading screen.


    It has a ROHS CARD-7A printing, but it can be seen without opening the case.

    Any firmware I should try? I don't have the box anymore.

    Sorry for poor english.

    Have you tried REGULAR YSmenu, instead of the RetroGameFan R4 clone version? There is an autocompiler you could get somewhere on these forums that will compile the YSmenu build for you...

    If so, then you may have to buy a new cart. You've listed all the firmwares that would possibly work on your cart.

    Couldn't find this. >_<
    What should I search for?


    Edit:
    Found it searching for YSAuto. Thanks!

    R4-SDHC? The firmware didn't work either.

    Also, tested Pokemon Platinum on YSMenu, didn't work. Gonna test some other games now.


    Edit: Atelier Annie didn't work either.

    Wonder if I installed it wrong. YSMenu boots perfectly, but won't run games.

    Edit2: Tetris DS turned in a black screen, instead of white, for some reason.

    You and me both have the same r4's and it's "R4 Upgrade Revolution for DS (NDSL/NDS)" right?, exact same problems no solutions what so ever. I've been at this for 2 weeks still no luck its better to just buy a new card, don't waste your time.

    *Edit*
    Oh yea I know the original firmware for it which is not Wood, the older games like Pokemon Platinum and Ss,hg work on it but any released this year will bring a white screen. If you wanna know the original just PM me.

    The original is the one from r4ds.me, right?

    Old games work under this one, and I'm fine with it.
    Of course an update would be fine, but... I dont think there is any. ;/

    How should I patch YSMenu to do so?
    Making a .nds out of it?

    Edit:
    Pokemon Platinum won't run on YSMenu, but it runs on r4ds.me firmware.

    Personally I suggest investing a new card such as an R4i Gold

    Fair enough, try downloading Retro's YSMenu again, then DLDI patching the YSmenu.nds with the DLDI for your card (it's normally in the system folder for your card if you can find the offical firmware) If you can't find the official firmware, look on the front of your card, it should have some site like R4.com, R4wifi.cn, ect, then once you get that patch the YSMenu with a DLDI patcher, once you patch it rename the YSmenu.nds to the boot file for your card.

    Sorry for the stupid question, but...
    What of the YSMenu's should I use, and how to DLDI patch it? :x
    (I got the renaming part, though. XD)

    Edit:
    Also, no .dldi file on the official firmware. (v1.18 from http://www.r4ds.me/download/r4ds.html)

    In Retro's files go with the R4_Clone YSMenu
    Then locate the DLDI file for your card, which is normally in the system folder (something like _system_)
    It will end with .dldi. Copy that file into the same location as the dldi patcher, then open the patcher. It should already have the file loaded.
    Then drag your YSmenu.nds into the little box and patch the patch button and it will patch it for you.
    EDIT...Try running the official firmware on your card, then run the YSMenu.nds through it

    I'd be very pleased.

    Also, thanks to all who helped me till now, and thanks in advance to those who will.

    Edit:
    Testing that~

    Edit2:
    White Screen on Pokemon Platinum (U), Black screen on Tetris DS (U).
    Both work under original firmware.

    Backup your flashcard
    Then reformat with this
    http://filetrip.net/f10976-SDFormatter-Version-3-0BETA.html
    After doing that, install the official firmware for your card, on your card.
    Then copy the R4 Clone YSmenu from Retro's file and run the YSmenu.nds as a homebrew through the official firmware

    Should I do a Full Format (Flash Erase On) + Format Size Adjustment, like Retro's tutorial says?

    Same problem. Black/white screens, depending on game.

    Flash Erase didn't work, the formatter says the device isn't compatible. Is it possible that it's the reason behind this?
