    Hi all
    have just bought my daughter a dsi for xmas and got her a r4i sdhc revolution upgrade cart for it, my problem is i have downloaded the latest kernel from www.r4i-sdhc.com and put extracted files onto sd card, installed to cart and put in dsi. when i select game the screen goes white and the image of a sd card comes up on top screen with menu? under it. can any one shine some light on what is wrong please cos i've treid several forums and got no joy yet.
    thanks in advance

    Then you go to the .HK site and use what hey give you there, because you have a different card than the .com site has.

    Yeah, clone card sites often have crappy web hosting.

    There is one other place you can try - which is USUALLY just as up to date as the 'official' websites

    Have a go at http://www.linfoxdomain.com/ and look near the bottom at all the R4 cards

    EDIT: Just looked and I can't see a www.r4i-sdhc.hk there - but there is a www.r4i-sdhc.com.hk (possibly a misprint ??)
    I've tried both addresses & I'm getting 'not found' as well

    Hi
    How did you manage to solve the prob as I have the same card with the .hk on it and I'm going on their actual site, downloading the R4i English v1.41h file and its still saying the same thing once i insert card after transferring this onto it... I've unzipped and just dragged the files onto the micro sd card. Do I need to unzip and only put certain files on or am I doing it right. Someone please help !! with instructions
