    I tried to play pokemon white on my Nintendo ds lite using a DSTT card updated to the 1.18 version.
    im using a 4 gig sandisc sd card as storage.

    RGF's is a different Kernel completely
    you replace you current one with it

    so you just update RGF's kernel from now on instead

    Still not working and still get a errcode =-4 error
    Ill describe what i did and maby someone can point out what i did wrong.

    I format my sd card.
    Then i copied the latest TTMenu folder and TTMenu.dat to the root of my SD card
    Then i copied the ttdldi.dat for dstti-clone/YSMenu/TTMENU/ and the ttpatch.dat for dstti-clone/YSMenu/TTMENU to the TTMenu on my SD
    So now i have a TTMenu folder with the ttdldi.dat and ttpatch.dat included
    After that i copied the YSMenu.dst to the root of my SD
    I changed the name of the YSmenu.dst file into TTMenu.dat and overwrited the official TTMenu.dat with the new one.
    After that i copppied the gamefolder onto the root of my SD
    So now i have the TTMenu folder, the new TTMenu.dat (former YSMenu.dst) and the game folder with my games.

    the i took out my SD card and put it in my DSTT card and put that one into my DS lite.

    then i tried to run Pokemon white and black but still te error code.

    (My ds says that i run YSmenu 6.98RGF)

    What did i do wrong, and can someone please help me.
    i really appriciate the help i allready recieved, but im stil not able to run pokemon black or white with succes.
