    So in other words its just an updated R4 firmware made to work as homebrew? While I have no idea what good it can do, I suppose if it can load something better than some other firmware then it does have some merit. Maybe you could add the ability of having more than 12 themes...

    yeah, its for MoonShell2, so it can load ROMs without problems, i think Xenon++ made this.

    This is very cool but it only seems to work with the Acekard. You'd really have something if it worked with the iPlayer.

    This is impressive. It could lead to some really cool developments. I think this is the first homebrew to launch retail games without messing around. Not working on DSTT. It's only for the Acekard.

    Its only for Acekard 2i/Acekard Clones
    I tried it but I dont think you guys should be taking credit because this is just the R4i Ultra firmware with a new skin [​IMG]

    Nope, this is GEi firmware. If i dont add loader made by Xenon++, this firmware can't load roms and homebrew. And, yeah i made new skin.

    Well, as long as it can do some of the extra things that the R4 normally can't, then I'm all for supporting R4 Start. A cool idea would be to have similar functions to the WoodR4 (cut/paste/copy mostly)...and maybe add the amazing "Rename" function that only DSOrganize seems to have xD.

    @ azure0wind: Hate to spoil your 'spoiler' on the first post - but surely you've made a mistake ??
    Hate to be nit-picking but AFAIK - I didn't !!! (at least I'm sure I didn't [​IMG] I've helped so many people)

    ......... I'm pretty sure I did help you get a program up-&-running by finding out what a certain error code meant - so I think if there is any credit due to me (which I admit I didn't expect [​IMG] ) - it should've been for something like 'CannonFoddr (Helped me solve a program run fault)'

    Still best of luck on this little project
