    FIXED
    Themes now stay as you left them instead off defaulting to 'Automatic'
    FFCC:EoT now loads when soft-reset is activated

    STILL BROKEN
    GTA:CW freezes with white screens when soft-reset is activated
    SWCW: Jedi Alliance freezes with black screens when soft-reset is activated
    Text on bottom menu screen can still be a little flickery

    Another thing worth mentioning is that save files created with YSMenu are not recognised by v1.22 but save files created by v1.22 ARE recognised by YSMenu.

    This is not true. YSMenu produces files with the extension .sav, while R4 firmware produces files with the extension .SAV. 1.22 will recognize saves if you change them from .sav to .SAV. YSMenu will recognize them no matter what.

    So what I said IS true. R4 v1.22 will not recognize a save file as created by YSMenu. You have to manually modify it to make it work.

    You could have just said you found a solution to the YSMenu save problem rather than implying I was a liar.

    I did not mean to imply that you were a liar. I posted this same response in the last 1.20 thread as a solution. I am sorry you took offense to me not treating it like something other than old news.

    I wonder why people still use R4's. There are a load of other cards, at a very cheap price, and they do the job twice as well. R4 is just outdated, face it guys. Anyway nice to see that one of the clone teams have done something about it.

    the new firmware still fails
    i used cheats for my devil survivor and i turned my ds off and i went back to turn it on but when i turned it back on IT COULDNT READ MY SAVE FILES.
    so what i did was download the original 1.18 kernel for the normal r4 i dont really care about what happens to my cheats i can just edit my cheats and at the same time losing the risk of all my savs going bye bye.


    anyway if you guys get this problem you can just down grade your firmware from 1.22 to 1.18
