    Hello, this is my first post please remind me, if I break the rules in this forum.

    I have a "mock" R4i 3DS card that used for approx one year, but recently i got only white screen when i try to load a ROM
    chronology :
    1. i turn on the DSi
    2 i open the R4 (the bomberman)
    3. i choose "game"
    4. i pick a game
    5. the loading screen shown
    6. the white screen appeared

    note : the problem sometime not happen, but when i restart my DSi, the problem shown again

    the step i have done but still no result :
    1. using newest or older kernel
    2. format my SD using panasonic SD formatter
    3. format my SD using system formatter with 8192 bytes allocation
    4. partitioning my SD

    BUT !
    this is NOT EVEN HAPPEN on my DS Lite and DS Phat, the game run normally there..:cry:

    oh yes, i have not update my DSi, its still on 1.4.5U

    and sorry my English is terrible, English is not my native language :blush:

    Hello.:)

    Can you please post a Picture of your Card ?

    That is the latest Firmware for the DSi and it still blocks some Flashcards too.
    This does not happen on the normal DS/DS Lite.

    So we can only guess:

    - maybe your Flashcard has an "Timebomb" - A "Software" Blockade in the Kernel.After a certain Date (September 2019 for Example) the Cards are no longer working.
    You can try to set your DSi Date backwards,maybe it works....

    - You can use an other Kernel/Software to bypass this Issue by using YSMenu.
    (for Example with the Multi Cart Update):
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/retrogamefan-updates-releases.267243/

    - You can put an Custom Firmware (HiyaCFW) on your DSi and use for Example @Robz8´s TWiLight Menu to unblock your Flashcard.

    As far as the Possibilities, if your flashcard is hampered by a Timebomb at work.

    Thank you.:)

    @cimo95 btw, if your flashcard starts to not work due to the timebomb, just install TWiLight Menu++ on it to bypass the timebomb, and the games will run via B4DS (nds-bootstrap for DS flashcards).

    from what you said that is you possibly using "memory pit" or whatever they said (mr @Robz8 may know the true name) which loading HBMenu when you tap on "Album" in Camera.

    what game you play? i mean, do you playing an original catridge game or a flashcart? and from where you run the game? from HBMenu, or from Nintendo's original menu?

    here's my suggest based on what i have experienced :
    put a duct tape on top of your catridge (logo side), and try to insert it on your DSi gently.
    i know this is sound silly but it works for me.
    but, if you want to pull out the catridge, just push once, and pull it gently :sad:

    sorry my english is terrible, i hope you understand what i mean

    and wait for @alexander1970 for better suggestions :blush:

    Just turn on your DSi, scroll the menu to your catridge icon (for example mine is "Touch! Bomberman Land" ) and click it.. IMG_20191114_213900.
