I don't know what happened, this method used to work Ok but now whenever I try to load a game it boots to a white or black screen. The menu of the card (original R4) loads fine (Wood latest version) but the games don't. Any ideas?

Don’t forget that some of these R4 cards are thin near the contacts. So when you insert them into the slot they may not be making full contact. Your card might have just enough of the pins in contact to load the menu but not completely in contact (all pins) to properly load games. Try cutting out a notecard to slide under the card within the slot to see if it makes any difference.

Hello o/

So my R4 doesnt have a _DS_MENU.dat file, just a _DS_MENU file, no extensions
Is there any way for me to launch it on 3DS then?
It's a R4 SDHC/NEW (r4new . com, no spaces, but can't post link because of low level), v1.24, and doesnt support 1.3+ updates because of different files in system (just a bunch of CCC files there)
It does'nt support Wood Kernel but i got around making YS working on it (no _ds_menu.dat file, remember ?, had to work around that)

Thanks :)

I been a long time so i just want to say this program works. My R4DS had some bad contact with my 3DS card slot, nowdays it's a little better but i still need to work on it. The program works, i just have to insert my R4 Revolution and boot using the R4DS Launcher. Everything is there, all the games and saves files. I'm using Wood R4 kernel, everything works. Thanks.

Can someone teach me how to uninstall this, please?
Open FBI, then "Titles", wait until all the list of installed titles loads, go to the final of the list and find the related title (it will be on blue color text), select it and finally select the "Delete title and ticket" option.

Just stumbled onto this post and I got a bunch of DSTT cards!
Can you provide any further instruction (steps) on getting the DSTT card to work (just like in your video).
EDIT....usually my Googling skills are spot on......can`t find the TWL_firm. I`m assuming thats holding me back from making it work.

Most of this stuff is obsolete. You should try this instead:

https://github.com/ApacheThunder/NTR_Launcher/releases/tag/2.5

It should work with the DSTT. I have personally tested original R4, Acekard 2i and DS Xtreme as working with this. There is both a 3DS version and DSi version. Note in both cases you need CFW installed to use this.

R4i Gold is just an R4i-type flashcard. There are a lot of R4i ones
Ok. I just wasn't sure because when I used the R4i gold launcher it launched my R4i SDHC 1.85b, but then corrupted all of the files when I tried to run an nds file

Hi Guys, I appreciate the work of @Apache Thunder . But I couldn't make the NTR Launcher to work with Original R4 card 2gb version on my o3ds.. it stays on white screens. It already took a lot of time on trying to make it work, trying different firmwares, ntr launcher versions etc.

I hope someone could upload the below files which seems to be working with my card as already confirmed by some users.
links on the OP not working anymore. please consider sharing these files if you still have a backup somewhare. thanks.

WoodR4Launcher.rar
R4CartLauncher_AnyKernel.rar

Both links work fine for me so I've attached them to this post.

If those don't end up working, it may also work to use TWiLight Menu++. It has an option to load Slot-1 carts from the menu when you press SELECT.

Edit: I've put everything from the OP up on archive.org for anyone else having trouble downloading in the future, was gonna put them in a ZIP here but it was too big lol.
