    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!
    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.

    Ok, this is just the R4.DAT, the rest you can grab from Wood's official package: http://www.multiupload.com/5WJAQKYGOP

    But I still prefer to share the knowledge, so anyone can create a modified launcher after this (and saves my time anyway).

    It's not a surprise to me to see this crappy r4itt running wood 1.33.
    I saw a firmware update on the r4ids.cc a couple of months ago allowing you to run directly wood r4 kernel on it.
    The r4itt is almost the same crappy clone.

    If you can get this running on the DSTT, it will also work on the Supercard DSonei.

    The DSTTi does not have r4 commands in its firmware.
    I doubt they succeed to run wood r4 1.33 kernel without updating the DSTTi firmware.

    Almost works on DSTT clones
    R4i3DS
    R4iLL

    It will boot and show the three icons but no other images. It crashes when any button pressed.
    Haven't tried pong's hexes yet.

    Is it just me, or did the OP do pretty much the exact same thing as practically everyone else did before they noticed that something failed when using WoodR4 on their clone? The only REAL difference is that there is the extra bits with softresetting that none of those other people seemed to care about and the dldi that nobody cared about because they were all bent on getting the commercial ROMs to work (you would have to be really dim if you saw that dldi file and not think to change it ._.).

    Oh right, just because the commercial ROMs run, doesn't mean that it is working. A couple of clones have had the ability to get WoodR4 to rum commercial ROMs, it's the other game-breaking stuff that stops them from using it.

    im sorry to ask this
    but this guide will work for r4 III revolution as the r4III needs a file called R4_III.dat that may be similar to the file R4.DAT?

    bottom half of list means change r4.dat to NDS and try and boot it like a game

    top half means rename it to whatever you current firmware boot DAT is

    Say something that would not work and I'll test, since I'm testing this thing for almost 4 hours and I didn't had any issues yet (and yeah, I tried pretty everything I could think that would break). Even Pokémon White (unpatched) that it's a pretty difficult game to run right it's working flawlessy.

    And hell yeah, I know that just everybody already tried this on DSTT, but I just couldn't stop my curiosity and try on this (cheap and crappy) clone. And I got some interesting results that I thought it would be nice to report. But if it doesn't matter to you, why bother to post?

    P.S.: just had some fun on Mario Kart DS(U), using cheats. Until now, no problems.
