    Hello, I have a R4i Gold 3DS Revolution (it doesnt have a v1.1 number on it, it just says R4i Gold 3ds Revolution in a off colored gold color) and after installing the 1.64 version firmware I moved some GBA roms onto the card, and while they display correctly, (showing a GBA icon next to each rom) when trying to start a rom nothing happens. Do I need additional patches to enable GBA support?

    R4i does not support GBA roms. There was an emulator in the works but I never got it to work. For GBA on an NDS flash cart you need the dstwo if I remember correctly

    Do you use a ds lite? If no your only option is gbaemu4ds which has relatively low compatibility.

    You need a slot 2 flashcart such as the ez flash 3in1. The r4i copies the rom to the slot 2, then runs the slot 2.

    He can't use a slot 2 flashcard if he doesn't use DS lite/ original DS tho.
