    Sounds like the firmware on the cart didn't actually update properly. You won't be able to fix this without another flash cart and an original DS or Lite (DSi and 3DS won't allow cart-swapping, which is needed to fix it).

    What's the website on the sticker of your card?

    get another flashcard, name it "A" here. download the both kernel of A and update patch of R4i flashcard, unzip them and copy to the root of the SD card. insert it into A and run A on your ds and click the updated patch, when you get in, reject the A and plug R4i into ds, then update it. it is supposed to be fixed or ... good luck
