    Hi everyone, so i recently got this flashcart , and already installed the firmware provided in the official page , i was wondering there's a way to test other firmwares ? the ones i've tried get me an error on boot.

    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    You must go to the seller who sold it to you, they always have the needed files for every cart they have. I know because I once worked with one, trust me :).

    If you extracted the kernel correctly it's likely the SD is corrupted. Make a backup and get SD Formatter from sdcard.org. Use full overwrite and size adjustment.

    You can try YSmenu too if want to try another kernel. Use the R4i-SDHC folder from retrogamefan's multi-card update. Replace the original r4.dat with this attached one to make it primary boot. You may want to rename the original so it doesn't get deleted.

    (please use at your own risk)

    I am using the R4i SDHC Dual-Core 1.72 firmware, and it works fine.

    Thank you so much. Been searching for days on how to replace the clunky stock kernel.

    I have an R4i Gold Pro which is the same kernel as every other card on r4isdhc.com. This hit it perfectly!

    I'm also curious what makes Ysmenu better, I'm about to pick up a few flash cards in the future.
