    Hi guys, in my country they're selling only r4isdhc.com's R4 Cards. So it is my only option for a flashcart.
    Is there anyway to bypass its time bomb? (without changing the date)
    Will it work on my A9LH'd 3ds?
    I read something about YSMenu -*it bypasses time bomb afaik*- can I install it to my R4?
    Thanks for any help!

    Yes, the timebomb is built into the kernel, so you may be able to put YSmenu as the primary kernel (I don't know that brand well, the difficulty may vary from "copy and rename a file" to "nobody ever did it")

    I thought Chinese sellers shipped everywhere (except in the next 2 weeks due to holidays)?

    Any DS flashcard can be made to work on a 3DS with CFW, but this and the better brands will also work on an unmodified one

    Gambia, The
    R4i SDHC uses some crypto stuff or something to prevent other kernels. You can't use YSMenu to work around the time bomb.

    I bought it and it looks like they removed the time bomb on 2017 models. I set the year to 2019 and it is still working.
