    Hello all,

    yesterday my gf brought me her ds in order to update her R4DS with some new games.

    The R4DS was checked and was working with no problems.
    I deleted some roms and copied some new ones.
    Also, I updated the system files with the latest firmware 1.18

    When I placed the R4DS in the DS
    I got the following screen....

    Tried, putting back an older firmware, changed sd cards, formated and copied new fw to clean sd card.
    Every time I keep getting the same screen [​IMG]

    Is my R4DS dead? Does anyone have an idea about how to fix the problem?

    thanks in advance.

    Not sure what the problem is there, I can't read Korean, Chinese (or whatever it is).

    Can only suggest to start fresh:
    1. format microsd again
    2. d/l english kernel 1.18 = http://www.r4ds.cn/download/r4.html#1
    3. unrar contents onto microsd
    4. put roms back on

    Hey Plink, I Think Your R4DS is not dead because mine is not dead so maybe you should try the R4DS Custom Firmware 1.18 i am using. It Enables you to load 8 MB saves. For more information please continue to http://www.r4ds-forums.com/

    This is the R4DS Custom Firmware 1.18 i am using. Please try this. Please? My internet connection is slow that is why It is hard to upload the file so please try. : )

    Hope This helps you and your gf to make her or your R4DS work again.

    You have a Chinese R4 rather than an English R4. Try installing the Chinese firmware and see if that works. If it does there's a English firmware patched to work on Chinese R4s in the Download Center.

    someone suggested that on r4ds forums,
    I tried loading the korean 1.18 kernel but I got the same error message.

    Also, tried it with newly formatted sd.
    Tried 2 different sd cards...

    problem persists [​IMG]

    and the worst thing is...that because my gf left for vacations today and needed her ds...i had to give her my own R4DS ...and now i'm stuck with no DS :S ...no korg-ds :S ....

    Try the Chinese firmware, not the Korean one. The error message is the standard when you get when you try to run a non-Chinese firmware on a Chinese R4.

    I'm sure you'll find the Chinese 1.18 patched to English in the downloads section in this forum. Just look in the R4 section.
