    I've just bought a new R4III (I lnow it's a clone but thats the only thing they have) not too long ago and it keeps having the same problem you have. I went back to the shop and they told me it should be the SD card problem. But i change the SD card for like 3 times and it still have the same problem. Can I ask what do you mean the cart is dying? I just bought it!!!! This can't happen to me. 'sobs'

    2 solutions

    1. Get a new one
    2. re-download the kernel and see what happens

    Wipe the contact on the microsd and r4 and blow your sd slot and ds
    maybe add a piece of paper behind the microsd to keep it from moving
    For me, sometimes when I play while in bed I roll over and I accidentally freeze the game pretty sure cause something moved

    my problems the same as the others, i know for a fact that my R4's real and i've had it for nearly a year... ive never had a problem with it before, but now it crashes randomly when i go online or while im playing. I dont think its dying as two of my friends bought their one before i got mine... thanks in advance [​IMG]


    ill try that now

    Just eject it and put it back and see if it helps. It has for me in the past. I've also re-formatted my card and added everything or certain games again.
