    I recently received my R4i 3DS plus via r4ids.cn and having put the Wood firmware on my sd card it boots up fine but has issues loading games. Sometimes I get a few minutes on each game whilst other times I just get a white screen upon game selection. Any ideas?

    EDIT: Tried on both a Sandisk and Kingston SD card using Wood R4iGold 1.64, currently sticking to the sandisk SD card and the R4 boots up fine however EVERY rom I have tried thus far freezes before or shortly after the title screen.

    You’re using Wood v1.64, right?

    If so, make sure your microSD is formatted as FAT32.

    If that doesn’t work, wait for someone else to possibly say something helpful.

    Yes I have formatted and done a clean install on Wood R4 v1.64. Is there a specific value the allocation unit size should be?

    Tried on both a Kingston and sandisk micro SD, although now I'm just getting a black screen upon booting my R4.

    Is there a way to tell they are or a specific place they should be gotten from?

    I actually own the two games I'm trying to use my R4 for. Its a lot more convenient to use the flashcard, plus I like to mess with cheats every now and again :)

    we still cannot tell you where to download games,
    if you have GodMode9 you can DUMP your original cards

    I don't need to know where to download games, I was just trying to figure out why my flashcard wasn't working

    Make sure the cart contacts are actually touching the contacts in the 3DS. Try putting a folded piece of paper between the flashcart circuit board and the plastic shell. That will raise up the flashcart PCB and push it against the contacts in the slot.
