    Go to the website address on the front of your card and download the latest kernel. If that doesn't work format your card with the Panasonic SD card formatter and try again.

    www.r4i-sdhc.hk its says on front cover. the website doesn’t seem to be connecting now. Can you recommend more sites where I can get the correct kernel? And talking about kernel is it same as psp? Which add more game campability? I am new to ds hacking.

    Go to the web address that is on the front of your cart or the box and download the kernel from there.

    Yes because the DS doesn't use DSi firmware. If you have a DSi and it is on lower than 1.4.1 firmware then your 3DS flashcard will still work perfectly well as long as you download the kernel from the web address on the front of your R4i flashcartr.

    Man I tried lots of kernel here http://www.r4town.com/pages/R4i-SDHC-Kernel.html
    and it’s not working same menu problem. And why this web site not loading www.r4i-sdhc.hk
    Or is it even possible to make a 1.4.2 card work on 1.4E dsi. Shall I update my ds?

    You cannot play any 3DS games on any of the current flashcarts as all of them (except iEvolution) run only in DS mode so you can only play DS games (or DSi games without the DSi enhancements).

    What is the web address on the front of your cart (generally you can only use the kernel from the web address on the front of your cart. Sometimes you may be able to use another carts kernel but it depends on what cart you have. Also you may be able to use RetroGameFans multi cart update but again it depends on what cart you have)?

    Wait until you can access www.r4i-sdhc.hk and download the kernel.

    Unfortunately you've bought a crap card. Hopefully the website will be available soon for you but if you have no joy over the next couple of days then you may well want to contact your supplier and demand your money back.

    I've just read an old post of mine for someone else who had the same problem.

    If you want a good reliable inexpensive cart then I would recommend the Acekard 2i.

    Download the retro game fan update. Extract the files from the "DSTT_DSTTi YSMenu" folder ("TTMenu.dat", "How to Install.txt" and the "TTMenu" folder) to the Root of your SDHC card. Rename TTMenu.dat to iLL.iL and your card should work (don't put any games on for the moment as we just want to get the cart running first). If that works then download some games and away you go.

    If that doesn't work then you'll have to wait until www.r4i-sdhc.hk is working again.

    Unfortunately that information is incorrect. It is right if you are after a Original R4 card but not one of the many many clones there are out there. You both have a very real but very crap card and of all the crappy clones there are out there you both picked one of the worst ones. Cheap does not equal good.

    www.r4i-sdhc.hk is now working and you should both download their latest kernel which appears to be 3.0B

    As the www.r4i-sdhc.hk site is regularly unavailable I've uploaded the 3.0b kernel to filetemp here.

    I always ask for the website with any questions about R4 cards if the OP doesn't give it.

    I know what you mean about the SCDS2 however I don't use mine that much at the moment as I use my iSMM for playing DS games (similar functionality when it comes to playing DS games but less of a battery drain) and my SCDS2 for videos and various emulators.

    I also used to have the AK2i but I felt like being an uncharacteristic generous old scroat and have sent it along with 8GB Transcend to a friend who I am trying to wean off R4 carts.
