    Hello, I was trying to play Pokémon Black on my old DS and I end up formatting the card with everything in it and didnt backup anything but the games.
    After that huge mistake I kept trying to download any numbers of kernels from R4 websites but not even one worked so far, I keep getting a white screen everytime that I turn it on.

    What is the right version for it to boot ? There goes a pic of it, thanks in advance guys !

    EXACT SAME THING happened to me on a fake R4 SDHC 2013
    I´m leaving this message just for the sake of finding out if my old R4 card is useable
    Sorry I couldn´t help you
    Also, most likely a fake R4

    It's not really a "fake". Not more than all the other R4-branded cards. Just saying.

    It's a cached version of the official site for that cart.

    I refer to it as fake because it´s not a "official" R4 card

    Pretty much every R4-branded card minus the original R4 (and was there an SDHC model ?) are "fakes" by that definition. While they are branded as R4, and are ripping off the branding, newer R4s are often better than the older ones, ec. the R4i-SDHC 3DS RTS by r4i-sdhc.com or the r4ids.cn ones. "Fake" has such a negative... connotation. Although it can be said, this card seems to be a ripoff of the r4i-sdhc.com carts, as its domain would imply. Welp, not sure if it is a hardware clone, or just uses the branding, but if it is a clone, it maybe could use the kernel for the R4i-SDHC or R4-SDHC. Idk. Either way, the original kernel should be in archive.org

    I believe here you can find the kernel for that card.

    rip then. Have you tried using the ones from r4i-sdhc.com ? Try the R4-SDHC ones, it should be in the download page.
