    Even in this state (where R4 is diving in popularity in this forum) R4 is still a cart you know, there are many things provided to support this cart.

    So, I'm trying to compile files that you might need for your R4 here, so you guys don't have to look or search for it again

    Table of Contents....
    1. <b>FIRMWARES</b>
    "--A. Latest Official Firmware"
    "--B. Recommended Firmware"

    2. <b>CHEAT DATABASES</b>
    "--A. Latest Cheat Database"

    3. <b>ROM TRIMMERS</b>
    "--A. Latest Official ROM Trimmer
    "--B. Recommended ROM Trimmer

    "tokyotrim Information taken from above thread WARNING: It's long!"

    4. <b>OTHER USEFUL TOOLS</b>
    "--A. R4Commander
    "R4Commander information WARNING: It's long!"
    "--B. DLDI Patcher
    "--C. Moonshell

    "--D.DSOrganize 3.2"
    "--F.GBAExpLoader v0.5"
    "--E.R4 Cheat Code Editor by YASU"

    5. <b>CUSTOMIZATION TOOLS</b>
    "--A.Injektor2 v1.09"
    "--B.R4 Theme Creator Alice"
    "--C.R4 Kernel Customizer"
    "--D.R4denc"

    "--E.Back to Firmware"

    "--F.YSMenu"

    That's all the things I feel necessary, anyone who knows other files important for R4 may tell me and post it, I'll update the post

    P.S: can the moderator stick this thread? I think this one is useful for R4 users out there

    Formatting is key, as its hard to find what you're looking for in 200 lines of identical text.

    good topic, but a bit confusing at first. subsections under firmware for example (1.1) make it first read like your saying the latest firmware is v 1.1. color headings and bold text make for better subtopic sections than numbering.

    i really think you should include something on a dldi no-patch app (http://dldi.drunkencoders.com/index.php?title=DLDI_No-AutoPatch, http://dldi.drunkencoders.com/index.php?ti...ght_Click#v0.9) as dsorganize sometimes requires it for booting of homebrew with the r4.

    also where is the section on moonshell, how to use moonshell, and how to update moonshell? granted the r4 firmware comes with the latest version (1.71) but that won't always be the case. also dpg encoding for moonshell would be a welcome addition, even if only a few links to help others find their way.

    cheers,

    Needs a table of contents.

    Spoiler tags would be optimal as well (to save on scrolling time).

    Umm....... sorry, but what's the point of making a spoiler tag? Since items here are meant to be known, arent' they?I thought spoiler tags was links that links you to a part of the post.... seems I'm wrong

    Spoiler tags are also great for saving space in long guides like this.

    So if someone is looking for something, they don't have to scroll past the entire text of every item. Once they find what they're looking for (which should be simple due to the table of contents), they just click the spoiler button and have what they want.

    the guide is looking good, nice job.

    is there any way to add anchor tags in bbcode? it would be nice if the TOC was clickable to something further down in the post.

    As far as I know the only way to do that would be with HTML, which is only available to staff members.

    Can this topic include things ON the R4, i.e. homebrews? if so you must add dsorganiser
    if not you need R4 theme creator alice. very useful for creating themes. (obviously).
    another useful program is yasu's R4 bugfix2 (although you already have links to the patchd firmware)

    Heh, never thought someone will actually post something on this thread

    Sorry, I DID thought about adding homebrews, R4 Alice, and others, but seeing it ignored makes me too lazy.

    I'll find their links and add them soon just you wait [​IMG]

    Yes, HTML can do wonders, I am pretty good when it comes down to HTML, however in most forums only admins can use it!
