    I have an R4DS SDHC and I was wondering if it's possible to make it not boot into its firmware as soon as I turn the DS on. I find myself playing GBA games and using download play a lot, and its a pain to have to take out the R4, turn it on then plug it back in everytime, and yes, I know I can play GBA games within the R4.

    Firmware 1.23

    Cheers, Alec

    You could use Back to the Firmware by Yasu.

    I can't give you a direct link because Yasu doesn't like that. You'll have to search it by yourself here.

    Use YSmenu, you can boot to the DS Menu without having to take out your R4 card.

    I never got YSmenu to work for me, I might figure it out if there isn't any other solution. Back to the firmware works, and I could rename it as moonshell and have it be the second icon, but I've gotten used to having that be GBA Exploader. Thanks for the suggestions though.

    Back to the Firmware is also included in YSMenu. I forgot to add that.

    In the options menu of your DS, set the booting to auto. Hold "B" when you turn on the DS and it will go straight to GBA mode.

    I have used R4YSauto and it works nicely, I tried by-hand method and didn't worked as well so maybe You should give it a try to R4YSauto

    From what i know, the autoboot is a hardware thing.
    Use back to the firmware (For R4 Firmware) or use YSMenu which has back to the firmware in it.

    Hope i helped in the slightest manner.
