    Hey, well.. My R4 is not good anymore i guess...
    doesn’t matter what kernel i put on it it keeps giving errors:

    An error had occurred.
    Press and hold the POWER
    Button to turn the system off.
    Please refer to the Nintendo DSi
    Operations Manual for details.

    I heard theres a update fixer for it but it doesnt works for me, i also already e-mailed the people of www.r4i-gold.eu
    but they dont answer..
    My R4: R4i 1.4.1 Gold

    the update file (if it's available) should be on the website of your cart.

    but clone team don't normally support their cart or answer emails

    edit:
    I just check the website and looks like they do have a firmware update for 1.4.2
    buy you'll probably need an older DS to update

    I've just had a look on the website and the 1.4.1 card update to 1.4.2 is here. However if you've already updated your DSi to 1.4.2 then you will have to find either a DS/DSlite or a DSi that has not been updated so that you can run the update. Check the readme with the update file.

    Put your microSD into your PC. Copy over all the data inside into a folder in your PC. Download and install this, select your microSD drive, and then use it to reformat the whole thing. Then copy and paste your data back.

    That's how to reformat it.

    Did you follow the other steps though, in particular the one where you update the R4i Gold on a DSL using the v1.4.2 updater? Reformatting is only one of the minor steps.

    My card site is :WWW.R4I-GOLD.EU
    I also got my update from there, so is the same with the kernel which was on it.
    My NDSL was plugged to the external power.
    the read me says this:
    how to upgrade products labeled "V1.4.1" or "3DS" for NDSi V1.4.2

    V1.4.2 hardware upgrade£º
    1.make sure nds fully charged, better with external power pluged.
    2.First, reformatting the SD, download the latest kernel 1.48b.
    3.Unzip and copy the files(R4iMenu,moonshl2,moonmemo,r4.DAT) to the root of MicroSD card.
    4.Download the latest upgrading programs. Unzip and copy the file(fwup142c.nds ) to the root of MicroSD card.
    5.Insert MicroSD card into r4i-gold card, insert r4i-gold card into nds\dsl\dsi\dsixl\3DS
    6.Turn on console and press "A" button to run the upgrade file fwup142c.nds. Note:When upgrading the r4i-gold card, it is not allowed to turn off power or pull out r4i- gold,otherwise it will damage the r4i-gold card.

    I turned it off, but the update was done...(yes the update did start soo :S)
