    Hi, I have a R4i gold 3ds, from r4ids.cn.
    I had a long time not played on my 3DS, but yesterday I decided to update my r4i gold 3ds card.
    The version is: 6.1.0-12E

    I download the wood kernel (v1.60) from r4ids.cn and place the files in the root of my sd card, then I paste the DSL.nds file from the upgrade patch (v6.0) from r4ids.cn in the root of my sd card.
    This is how the root of my sd card looks like:
    __rpg
    _DS_MENU.DAT
    R4iGold_3DS60_Patch_NDSL.nds

    When I startup my dslite the metroid icon appears, and when I click on it I get a white screen!
    What am I doing wrong, I didnt heard any one with this issue?

    Please help me!

    (My r4igold 3ds card always worked, and previous time when I updated it worked also)

    well first you havnt applied the update for 6.0.0 yet

    also your using the wrong update file

    and also the Metroid cards cant be updated as there bugged

    white screen when starting up the card or when booting a game
    normally indicated a problem with the MicroSD

    No, I have tried it with a new SD card (2gb) and do the exactly same things as before.
    But it keeps having a white screen.

    But before I had that 'Metroid' icon, I had an angelwing icon with a pink background..
    And when I put that file on the SD card, i have a white screen on my Dslite also, because the startup is the point where it fails.

    well you can try the update

    but a white screen at boot is SD card normally
    at worst case it is a brick so needs to be re-flashed

    But, it won't startup. I don't say loading just a white screen.
    So it don't help if i put a r4i.nds or a dsl.nds in it.

    Thanks for your help,
    Pff, i dont buy a r4 again then.
