    I've just bought a new DSi XL, with a flashcard, the R4i GOLD, the only one I could find where I bought the console. I've downloaded the kernel from the website, and put some games in it, but when I turn on the DSi, it appears that a game called Star Wars: Lethal Alliance is in it, and when I press the button to start the game, an error message appears, telling me to look at the operations manual in a specific section. I looked for it, and it just explains how I put the game card in the console... So far, I've downloaded a lot of kernels, but none of them worked... Could someone help me, please? I'd really appreaciate, DSi XL is amazing.

    I think you need to buy an R4i Gold XL or something. But you should just get a supercard 2 instead of one of those cheap r4 clones, your r4 clone won't even work with many games.

    looks like your R4i gold is blocked
    check what firmware you're using, is it 1.4.1??
    what R4i gold do you have?
    some have fix to bypass 1.4.1 and some don't

    You should tell us the website on the package of your card.
    It seems that your r4i gold is not the original one.
    The r4i gold original's website is "www.r4ids.cn".
    Have a look and have a check.

    I don't really know the firmware I'm using, but I've really tested all of them. I guess the one that is currently in my card is the one from the website on the box, www.r4i-sdhc.com.au.

    if it's the one with the red box, than it's not a r4i gold
    and it looks like there no way to fix your r4i-sdhc, only way to fix it is to buy their new cart (version) which is 1.4.1 compatible
    but if you you're gonna buy a new cart, buy something better, not a cheap r4 clone
