    Hello there tempers! As the title states, i am interested in reviving my R4i Ultra!
    For those who dont know, it is a clone of Acekard 2(i).
    As Such, using certain things made for Acekard allows to be run on it, Sadly, AKAIO is NOT one of those things.

    Currently, I am running YSMenu made using AK2YSAuto. This Uses akloader.nds to run its games.
    Because of this, as far as i know, I am unable to use the extinfo.dat and other related .dat's to update/run new games like the Regular YSMenu.
    If anyone knows anyway i can get the regular, updatable YSMenu to work on my AK2 clone, i would be very grateful, or even if i could update my current YSMenu to play new games. It runs using the same loader as old Acekard Official firmware 4.23.

    Thanks again,
    Iggloo

    YSMenu hasn't been updated in a year, and the page went down.

    Wood is the new "awesome alternate firmware", but it doesn't run on your hardware.

    Thanks for responding. i know that Ysmenu hasnt been updated, but i had thought that by applying new .dat's that you would have access to other games, no?

    Yes, that's right. The latest DATs are v6.39 from Retrogamefan.

    Since R4 Ultra is an Acekard clone, I'm not really sure if you can use YSMenu with it. Good luck!

    I am able to use Ysmenu with it, however it is the YSMenu made with AK2YSauto, and therefore boots games using akloader.nds as opposed to the .dat's.
    What i was looking for was a way to get the update-able YSMenu to work by way of dldi patch or some other means

    Well I am using that YSMenu with updated .dats on R4i ultra & seem to be able to play a lot of the new games. Way better than the original ultra kernel. How do you know it isn't using the .dats?

    are you able to play Dark Dawn [​IMG] if so would you mind teaching me how? and i know because even if you delete the .dats it still runs games

    EDIT: Thanks for here being your first posts
    EDIT2: Exactly which YSMenu are you using? The YSMenu.rar one, or the R4Uys one?

    Just tried it & doesn't work. Black Screen.
    I don't know. I tried to help. I am always looking
    for different kernels & stuff to run on R4i ultra.
    Hopefully something will show up.
    Sorry can't be more help.

    No worries friend you did more than your fair share.
    I guess all we can do at this point is wait and watch

    YSMenu is not replacing any kernel is just replacing the HMI!

    So, the version running on Ultra won't use .dats because they are used by DSTT kernel while the YSMenu running on Ultra is using Acekard kernel that are not using .dats.

    Currently for Acekard clones there are porting of:

    - Wood 1.30 (I use it on my acekard clone)
    - Akaio 1.8.7 (I haven't tested it yet)

    Pan.

    At the r4ultra.com site, there is a link for AKAIO 1.8.6a (specially made for the R4Ultra). Otherwise use YSMenu.
    EDIT: Whoops, sorry didn't read the date. Just the poster above me.
