    Hi everyone, hope that everyone is doing fine :)

    I got this problem.. My r4 has stopped working.. i bought it 4 years ago, everything was alright... But now i get the ''Loading...'' text on it :( i've looked on google and youtube... saw lot's of people with same problem, and they manage to put it to work... but the thing is, they had bad kernels, bad sd's, clone cards, missing folders etc etc... but my problem is different _ _'' everything was fine, i have 6 sd's and all of them worked before.. and if i put the r4 on my ds without a micro sd, i get ''Loding...'' too... HEEEEEEEEEEEELP!! :cry: I'ts 4:37 am, and i'm trying to find a fix since 11:something pm..

    * since the last i played, i didn't change a thing on the firmware. :sad:

    Format your micro sd card with this :) Backup your data before you do it. Add your files back once it's formatted. Boot it up, and the problems should be gone.
    If that doesn't work, the reader inside the flash card has gone bad :(

    Sorry brother... i've tried that already :( but it's kind of strange that when put the r4 without a micro sd it still says ''Loading..'' isn't?

    Your internal micro sd reader has gone bad. It's time for a new card. :(

    You are very welcome. You know an original R4 is $2 dollars shipped nowadays, right?
