    Ok. I hate the date and time being on the top screen of EVERY theme on the R4I-SDHC 3DS (www.r4i-sdhc.com) and I want it gone, like right now. Does anyone know how to get rid of it? I'd appreciate if anyone could help.

    Does it use R4 theme format or Acekard/Wood R4 theme format?

    if you have an r4i-sdhc r4 that is 2ds or 1.4 and over you can use the latest kernal to move the date and time i think

    @exangel It's more like a TT menu.

    @Luigi I'm on the newest firmware and the date/time exists.

    @Everyone Man, I would offer karma but gbatemp doesn't implement it. That is how much I hate the date and time message on the top screen. It gets in the way of the upper screens ROM detail display. If I can't find an answer here, but I'm hopeful I will, I'll write the team and tell them how counter productive the text is to the ROM detail display. Hopefully they will consider a request to allow for its removal. Trying to match the date/time text color doesn't even help as it never truly matches. I would assume the fix would be straight forward but in fact it isn't to me. I just know it will be beyond easy for some members. Here's to hoping someone knowledgeable reads this message and has the time to instruct on the fix. Thank you. :)

    The R4i-sdhc.com uses it's own format that is similar to all other fake R4 carts (Game, Menu and Slot2 buttons on the bottom screen) but just different enough to require it's own skin maker. If you google "17booberts r4i-sdhc skin maker" you should get links to it. I will not link to the actual programme as it has links to a ROM site in it's programming.

    You can use the third button on the main r4i-sdhc screen to edit the colour of the time and date but you cannot get rid of it.

    Unfortunately I believe that it is a "feature" of the kernel to have the time and date permanently in the top left hand corner of the top screen and it cannot be removed. The best you can hope for is to edit the SPLASH_DateTime in the color.ini file contained within the skins folder to a value that matches the background colour so that you can't see it or use 17booberts skin maker to alter the color of the text.

    I wouldn't call the r4i-sdhc 3DS "fake." It's actually a damn good flash card. The r4i-sdhc team is great. They release new firmware and updates regularly. If they don't offer a game update fast enough there is always Retro's firmware. All in all though, it has been a great card and I endorse it, telling people that they'll be happy they purchased it. I will continue making these comments until the r4i-sdhc team evokes a different emotion, but love is all I have right now. :)

    @ Everyone Please read two posts up. I'm still hoping someone can please tell me how to get rid of the date/time text on the top screen of my r4i-sdhc 3DS card. Thank you :)
