    No you did nothing wrong. This company is making poor decisions lately with regards to there past customers although for the price they make some of the better budget cards.

    The released a new revision of the 2013 cards and the new kernel they are putting up (1.60 and greater) will not work with the "old" 2013 cards produced in the first half of the year. Supposedly they did this because another company was producing a clone of this card so now they locked out the clone (of a clone) card and also screwed there old customers too.

    If you have a backup of the 1.52 kernel put that back on. If not send them a message to send you the 1.52 kernel. If you want to update the kernel in the future for game compatibility use RetroGameFan's dats (see the stickied topic). Use the dats in the r4isdhc.com folder as they are customized for better game compatibility with the hacked 1.25 Wood kernel that they are using for this card.

    PS: also don't try to update the card to work with 3DS 6.2 as it will mess up the card.

    I did update the card and you're right I'm now in trouble, but I'm wondering if it could be recovered with the old wood UI for DSTT that I'm tryng to find, or a RetroGameFan future version... :)

    YSMenu doesn't work with these cards (white dual core or new/2013 gold pro) and has actually bricked some cards just by trying to boot it up (although hard to believe...).

    The kernel from the official website already is a further hacked and customized "Wood R4 1.25 for DSTT" with extinfo.dat, infolib.dat and now "mixinfo.dat" in the latest 1.60 kernel side loaded for compatibility fixes.
