    So I bought a r4i card from a store nearby my place and it was my first time knowing about r4's :3.. so I was really excited to get it ... but the dumb thing was that the r4 only supports a little bit of games .. so I was wondering if there was a better firmware for this chip .. this chip has made me upset [​IMG] .. I have been trying to find one that supports it but could not find ANY luck at all .. please help ): .. I cant play sims 3, chinatown, super mario .. [​IMG] .. really makes me mad S:

    so is there a better firmware that is suitable .. ive tried almost anything .. .S:

    Try backing up your card, then formatting it with this
    http://filetrip.net/f10976-SDFormatter-Version-3-0BETA.html

    Then find the DLDI patch for your card, which is normally somewhere in the system files
    DLDI patch the YSmenu.nds with that DLDI and rename it to the boot file, which is normally _DS_MENU.DAT

    your car is the one from the mario box ?
    if it is
    you can use
    ysmenu
    i have the same car as you and ys menu really works
    [​IMG]
    remember you need to have the original kernel and then put the clone ysmenu in the root of your card
    then put it in you ds turn it on and serch for the ysmenu.nds and you can now play games

    use the original kernel from your r4igold .cn card
    then put the ysmenu for r4 clones and thats it
    i have the same card as you

    I just realized you have a r4igold.cn not a r4i gold from r4ids.cn

    sorry, wood won't work if that's the case

    I run the same flashcart, and I've noticed that the filesystem on the SD card has a profound effect on speed. Try formatting it with the panasonic SD formatter. (http://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/sd/download/index.html)
    Obviously, you'll want to back up the data on your card first; on the upside, copying the data off your card, formatting, and then copying it back not only gives you a clean filesystem, it also gives you an unfragmented one.

    Then don't upload it. YSMenu should not be uploaded precompiled.

    What? That was 1968.

    You can write a 10 page manual for n00bs if you want to prohibit updloading of YSMenu... And help them...

    YsMenu is in Retrogamefan's Multicart firmware updates, and that's good.
