    I got an R4i SDHC (red box) and I tried to update my kernel, but for some reason it doesn't work.

    There are 3 files in the root of my sd:
    _ds_menu.sys
    _ds_menu.dat
    _ds_mshl.nds

    that are not in the kernel update file. However if I don't put these files on my sd card, it will be stuck at the loading screen.
    There is a file that comes with the kernel update that I don't have: r4.dat but even renaming that doesn't work.
    I have NO CLUE how I got these 3 files in the first place.
    The website of my card is: r4i-sdhc.com

    Help would be appreciated.

    Clearly, you don't have an R4i SDHC (red box)

    One's inner self
    if its true download the following firmware

    http://filetrip.net/f9811-R4i-SDHC-1-17b.html

    make sure every file & folder is copied to the root of your SD card

    if this fails to work then u may have a fake card (and yes i realize that the R4i-SDHC is a fake of the r4 [​IMG])

    Wow lol, as stupid as this may sound this reply actually helped me.
    I was certain, so I grabbed the box and wanted to make a picture of it. And then I saw my kernel's website isnt r4i-sdhc.com, but r4isdhc.com xD
    So thank you xD
