    If R4i RTS could load i wonder if this newer one can it uses alot of the same basic folders and is made by team M3 anyway

    heres some screenshots of the GUI

    Time for me to get to work im gonna see what i can do with a gay little cat boy's guide for R4i RTS and replace it with this anyone else who wants to try something feel free to post results here.

    I also remember Taiju (xenon) mentioning that it is possible to get this firmware working on M3i0 but i honestly have no clue on how (which is why im experimenting)

    Link to Instructions and info on setting up the card: http://www.r4isdhc.com/instructions/

    Download link for the firmware: http://www.r4isdhc.com/r4-download/ (1st link)

    I will test something to see if I can get it to work, then update one of my walkthroughs if I get it to work

    i managed to create an r4irts.nds using an old Loader.eng and the r4i rts 3.0's _ds_menu.sys (renamed to r4i.sys) ill see what it does also made a g6dsload.eng

    EDIT: it booted up but i got an error "could not find _system_/r4i.sys" so i copied the renamed _ds_menu.sys there and now all i get is a black screen i am going to try using sakura to boot up the r4irts.nds created earlier.

    I was just going to edit the text in the .bat file to use _ds_menu.sys instead and see if that could make a difference.

    i got some results...i think the problem is that it is looking for r4i.sys in a place where its not supposed to even be, try your way see what you get.

    EDIT: Tried booting the r4irts.nds through touchpod all i get is a black loading screen that says "DLDI Compatible" i would try sakura but its giving me an error everytime i boot it up, well its on you now cat i did what i could. I think its very possible to get working but the problem is the paths are screwed up (probably because of the loader.eng) idk how to modify them either so ill leave it to you.

    If only Xenon was still around no not Taiju Xenon...

    I tried a few things, still didn't get it to work. I wish I knew how he got it to work since now I am interested
    I will dig through the files I have, I do still have a lot of Xenon's files backed up and I will what they have

    I read the edits, which is why I am looking through all of his files that I backed up from his site. I am hoping to find just one that might help
    It uses the same software as the other firmware, so in theory I should be able to get it to work just fine if I make some edits to the patching program

    Yeah, I got no where fast and I tried all the files I have.
    As interested as I am, I think we need someone better than me to work on this project.

    Does anyone know who created the patches for R4i RTS and iTouch?
    If anyone would know what to do, that person would...unless they left the scene as well..please don't tell me they left the scene >.

    if you rename the ds menu .sys to loader.eng then patch it with the r4 patches
    you could go as far as the Loading... screen
    since they had blocked R4irts a long time ago, I don;t think the current patches will work on 3.0

    That was the first thing I tried.
    As I said, who made the first patches?

    If that team change the name of their card I would buy it.
    I'm sure others would as well.
    The GUI is to die for.
    BTW that site contains links to roms and rom-sites and software to download roms. (DSHappyBox)
    If this is made to work on m3 I'm getting one.

    Rudolph made the itouch and m3real patches and Xenon pick up on r4irts. And both of them had already quit.
