    When I bought the R4-III I had gotten the latest firmware, which is 3.13. I don't understand why, but every game I play always freezes at some point in. I don't understand why this is happening, even YSMenu can't fix it. Please help.

    Because you got a crappy R4. Seriously, do yourself a favor and just get an Acekard.

    It sounds to me like a contact issue, which can happen to any cart.
    The solution is usually to place a piece of paper behind the cart to force it onto the contacts.

    Damn. Have you tried it with different thicknesses of paper?
    Otherwise it could be the contacts in the SD slot... but that's a whole other problem.
