stuck on loading... with ds lite and with only the kernel file

I've had the same problem with a happybox V2.0 (the red one). I've upgraded the firmware to the latest version (copy all the firmware files to SD, run and wait a while on the loading screen until a message appears telling me it's upgraded), installed the latest kernel, and it gets stuck on the loading screen with a message telling me I have to upgrade the firmware.

What error message?
If black screen with "Error Message: An Error Has Occurred. Hold Down the ..." than the card is dead, broken or unusable on 3ds.
Check it on DS Lite or any older console.
NM.

This card should work with Wood 1.62.

You only need one (extracted) archive copied to the root of the SD card, either the fw upgrade or the kernel.
Try copying the fw upgrade only, then loading it on a DSlite, then waiting for a message telling you the upgrade was successful.

Have you tried another MicroSD card?
Is it formatted as FAT32?
Check disk manager and see if there are any small partitions in front of the main one.

Just tried updating my old R4 Gold Pro, and ran into the same issue. Turns out I was using a MicroSD card that I had an emuNAND partition on from using my Gateway with it. After deleting the partition and copying the kernel to it, it now works fine.
