    So my father had bought me an R4i RTS/3DS Gold cartridge from RHS a few days ago, and I (idiotically) ran an .NDS file to (unnecessarily) "update it" for a 1.4.5U NDSi (I say unnecessarily because I didn't know it was already made to work for it), and now every time I run the cartridge from my NDSi, it just goes completely white. The power button still brings up the home however.

    The original game icon and name was this --> [​IMG]

    Now the icon and name is Japanese text with the word "Dorasu" and a chibi-guy waving his hand.

    I downloaded this new .nds file from http://www.r4ids.us/r4i-gold-3ds-download.html, labeled
    The new patch for DSi/XL V1.45 is released now! (for DSi/XL V1.45 only)(Jan.23,2013)

    Whoops, good job me.

    I'm currently fully reformatting my SD card with SDFormatter with OverWrite Erase and the other option on.
    (this is after applying the proper Wood kernel, then trying several others with this new messed up firmware I've installed)

    I'm pretty sure this cartridge is bricked.
    Nrghhghghghgh. Advice please? (I probably need a replacement cart now)

    This is my card: [​IMG]
