    Hello,

    I have a 'kind of' R4 DS card with R4i-SDHC hardware.
    I want it to work on my 3DS on 11.1 A9LH with Luma and when i insert in on my 3ds (firmware included on r4 SD), the A9LH launches but Luma freezes when launching with the card in there.

    In the 1st part of the card, we have a normal "R4 DS Revolution for DS', which seems to be legit.
    But in the second part of the card, it's supposed to be green but no, it's red with written in it 'R4i-SDHC' with the number 7 in the right part of it.

    If you have a firmware or something that can work, please put your answer or firmware here.

    P.S = I know that my card is a fake one, but i don't know what software (normally R4i-SDHC) works.

    Thanks for your answer, but I already have Stage2 Loader and TWL Patch.

    You should also try using NTR Launcher to boot the card. Of coarse you still need to find the right firmware files to your card first.

    Well thanks for your answer Apache, but the thing is I can't even boot Luma with that card in. Luma freezes and won't boot. I can't move nor start Stage2.

    Start NTR Launcher with no cart inserted. Then insert cart when it prompts you to. See if it works for you then. That's the only way you'll be able to do it then. If that don't work, sounds like you have a defective cart. It should not be causing the system to hang just by inserting it.

    I have a R4 SDHC Revolution Gold Pro 2016 that will occasionally cause my 3DS to black screen on boot. It acts as though A9LH isn't installed as it won't let me boot payloads or the Luma config screen. I have to hold the power button down until it shuts down. Removing that card will allow the console to boot. It doesn't happen all the time, but enough that I just pop it out when I need to reboot.

    Edit: After the 3DS is booted and I insert the card, it operates great. I don't have a problem with it afterwords. Only with it inserted and the console powered off and then I start the console.

    EDIT3: Luma still freezed, with NTR in it.

    Seems that your card is more recent than mine, since my card was for a DS lite. I didn't knew that my card was that bizarre nor fake. My card worked before but not now.

    Hey. Sorry if this is a missleading post but idk how to send pm here. I have a TTDS flashcard and I've tried to use your launcher from here http://gbatemp.net/threads/r4-stage2-twl-flashcart-launcher-and-perhaps-other-cards-soon™.416434/page-42#post-6167384 but whenever I execute it it gets stuck on this screen
    image

    Do you happen to know any solution to this?

    Also, when using NTR_Launcher the loading changes to "no card?" when using the files from the .zip of your post i've linked above, and it gets stuck on the same screen as the image while using the latest version of TTDS.

    Try to format SD (keep your data safe before) with SD Formatter by Trendy / Panasonic (do a quick one with overwrite activated, you can find it on the options) and try again. It appears that a long loading screen is done by a kind of fragmentation.
