    I've just ordered a R4 Ultra from DealExtreme, along with a Ezflash 3 in 1 for PHAT DS's.
    However my DS original is bricked, and was wondering if I could unbrick it using the R4 Ultra, just like the original R4.



    Note that my DS has been bricked installing FlashMe 8va, cause I turned it off halfway thorough, because I thought I could recover it using one of my TTDS's (but i couldn't [​IMG] ).

    I'm pretty sure that an R4 is both a device and an Utility for the DS.

    Note: Apperently u can unbrick it.
    a better explanation

    Sorry for being vague.
    So far a bricked DS can be unbricked using the old R4, but i don't know about the R4 Ultra.
    Can anyone confirm whether it can?
    OR
    Does the R4 Ultra boot from _DSMENU.DAT
    OR
    Is the R4 Ultra backwards compatible with the old R4 firmware? (an answer of No does not mean all hope is lost).

    Any answer of yes means I can Unbrick my DS .
    @lolzed: Sorry I was wrong about the section.

    I have an R4 Ultra and am new to all of this... so I know it's an R4 clone... but what is it compared to.. an M3?

    Like how would I get YSMenu to work on my R4 Ultra?
