    Today i bought a R4 Gold PRO 3DS, Model r4i-gold.com...I will describe exactly the steps i did and how i got a permanent white screen that i dont know how to fix...

    1. As a new to r4, i inserted r4 without sd and i was getting an error " no system file ~similar to this, i dont remember"
    2. Tried many kernels but all of them gave me white screen when i started the cart.
    3. Then i downloaded this:
    4. It worked but when i tried to play a game, it stuck at loading and i restarted the ds.
    5. After restart iam now getting a white screen when i run the cart, even without a microsd inside.

    Yes,i reformated sd and also tried a second sd. Iam using NDSL.

    Can you try to launch Metriod Prime Pinball? It's a very old game that might work.

    This kernel also gives me white screen when i click to launch the r4..
    I wonder, why does the kernel on the youtube video worked the first time and after restart i got white screen?
    Also before i install the kenel from youtube, when i launched r4 without sd i was getting " no system file " messege but now nothing, even without sd when i launch r4 i et white screen. iam curious.

    Downloaded both 1.57b and 1.36b and tested both on 2 different sd cards...both give me white screen.
    Both cards formatted on FAT32, also tried on FAT.

    Edit: Also just Tried v1.33b/1.35b, Still both white screen.

    Why can be anything from newer firmwares not working on your cart to you running a game with AP that the firmware can't handle, etc.

    It really sounds like the kernel from the video has an "anti-fake" code which bricked the card... or your MicroSD needs to be formated or is crap.

    It is a DSTTi Clone, he can just use YSMenu and it will work.
