What is this thing? A modified Wood R4 firmware to work under R4iTT v1.6 (the purple one). It has all features and works almost as expected. I'm a skeptic person, show me the proof!!! Ok, watch the following video. Go to 4:10 to see this working on DSi and 8:20 to see on 3DS (thanks Kashif for the video). [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQ0sxZFw9qQ&feature=feedu[/youtube] Cool! Where I can get this thing? You can download the latest version on FileTrip. Since this is not a official Wood version sometimes it'll be released without some function/bugs, so maybe you'll want to use an older version to get these things working. See "Known Issues" for more information. How to install? The same as any other firmware, move the contents of the folder to the root of your SD card. If you're new to this flashcard thing, I recommend you to read the "New DSTT FAQ" from Bri. Will this work on DSTT/DSTTi and their clones? Probably not, at least on these flashcard it was proved that didn't work: official DSTT, official DSTTi, DSTTi Gold, R4i3DS, R4iLL, R4-III. Your best shot would be the other R4iTT, the R4iTT2 (the black one), but nobody that has this flashcard answered to this topic yet. But the R4iTT is a DSTT clone too, so maybe it will work on some another exotic clone. Didn't hurt to try, and if you can get it working just let me know. Remember to change the "r4.dat" file to match your flashcard. I prefer to modify the firmware by myself. Can't really trust on some stranger, you know. Ok, just follow this tutorial. It works on all versions until now, but keep in mind that there are some issues with the latest version (1.34). Warning: Spoilers inside! As many of you know, R4iTT is just yet another cheap copy of DSTTi. The official firmware is crappy: it doesn't run Pokémon B/W and other heavily copy-protected games without patching, the UI is the ugliest I ever seen (let's not forget the lame background sound) and there is that Wi-Fi mode that I just don't know what it does. I was pretty happy with RetroFanGame firmware (great work BTW), but the YSmenu is ugly too and didn't have as many options as AKAIO/Wood. So I was messing with Wood firmware and Wood4TT (that already works on R4iTT) and finally get the lastest Wood's 1.33 firmware running on this flashcard, as you can see on this photo: How to get R4iTT to load Wood As many of you know, R4's _DS_MENU.DAT is actually just a normal .nds encrypted file (http://gbatemp.net/t269241-wood-r4-nds-fil...oad-wood-r4-ck3). Thanks to the great Yasu, nowadays is very easy to encrypted or decrypted this file. And apparently, the R4iTT just search for a "R4.DAT" file, that is essentially a normal .nds file with another name . So it's very easy: 1) Let's download the latest Wood version (at least until today it's 1.33: http://filetrip.net/f25629-Wood-R4-1-33.html). 2) Download the r4denc too (Yasu doesn't like hotlinking or mirrors, so just go to his website and search for "r4denc": http://home.usay.jp/pc/etc/nds/index_en.html). 3) Decompress everything to a temporary folder. P.S.: I was actually using Linux, but the Yasu did include the source code for r4denc and it's very easy to compile using gcc ("gcc -o r4denc r4denc.cpp"). 4) Open command line (on Windows press "Win+R" and type "cmd" without quotes) and go to the temporary folder you just created. 5) Execute "r4denc.exe _DS_MENU.DAT", now you will create another file ("_DS_MENU.DAT.DEC"). 6) Rename this new file ("_DS_MENU.DAT.DEC") to "R4.DAT" (CAUTION: Windows by default hidden the file extension. Be careful to not create a "R4.DAT.DEC" by mistake!!!). Ok, that's it. Now you just have to put this newly created "R4.DAT" and the rest of Wood's firmware ("__rpg") on the root of your SD card and you're ready to go. But you will have two problems... Fixing problems This part is not essential since it's pretty more complicated and the only thing you lose by not doing this is the soft reset and theme change (the theme will change but you will have to manually reset your DS), but since I have a Nintendo 3DS and the boot is really slow I will show how to fix these issues. Thanks for animex2k9 for the hint (http://gbatemp.net/t281585-wood4tt-theme-changing-fix). 1) You will need a hex editor. Anyone with a pretty decent search engine will do. I used hexeditor for Linux. For Windows I think the freeware HexEdit (http://www.physics.ohio-state.edu/~prewett/hexedit/) will do the job. 2) Open your "R4.DAT" file that you created with the r4denc. 3) Now using "ASCII search", search for this pattern: /_DS_MENU.DAT. P.S.: hexeditor's search is CASE SENSITIVE, and there is sometimes Wood used "/_ds_menu.dat" instead of ALL CAPS. If your hex editor are the same, remember to search for this pattern too. 4) Just change everything you found to "/R4.DAT". Remeber to "00" (NULL) the characters that aren't used. 5) Save your modifications and enjoy your 100%(?) functional Wood firmware. I don't know if this is a problem too (didn't test before), but I changed the auto-dldi patch file too. 1) Download the lasted R4iTT firmware (http://www.r4itt.net/?c=gamekernel). 2) Decompress the file, and copy the "/SYSTEM/dldi.dat" to some safe place. 3) Rename this file to "r4_sd.dldi". 4) Substitute the "/__rpg/r4_sd.dldi" file to that one. P.S.: you can hexedit the "R4.DAT" too and change this for a more appropriate name (like "tt_sd.dldi" as on Wood4TT), but I just didn't bother to try. I tested some clean (trimmed) roms: Pokémon White (E) and Sonic Classic Collection (U). Tested one homebrew too (Lameboy v0.12) just to check auto-DLDI and everything worked as should on my 3DS 2.10-3U (using latest R4iTT kernel for 3DS). Soft reset and theme changing both worked flawlessy too. Tried usrcheat.dat from GBATemp Database (http://cheats.gbatemp.net/), working as expected. It may work on other DSTT clones too, but I really don't know, since I'm just a curious person and not a developer and I have just this piece of hardware to test. But I will try to answer any question that come, unless they're plain stupid. Happy hacking . You just did the same thing everyone would do. Pretty lame. Yeah, I know, but why it worked on this flashcard specific is a mystery for everyone. And I don't know any other report before mine of Wood working on R4iTT (except the Wood4TT, that is heavily modified and pretty old). Still, it's nice to see the latest Wood running on this (crappy) flashcard. One thing I want to make clean: this is only for users that already owns this thing. I don't recommend anyone to buy this flashcard and since I'm not a developer, if Wood changes something on his firmware that break this method I will probably not update this firmware anymore. Known Issues (excepting upstream bugs) 1.35v2 -Blank screen when you try to load any game. The party is over, I guess. 1.34 -Soft-reset didn't work. 1.33 -No known issues.
