    Hey all, I tried updating my R4 to v1.18 recently, and I can't bloody well get the thing to work. I tried the english version and got the following:

    Now I've no idea what language that is and I can't read it, so I've no idea what to do. I also tried with every other update available (Korean, French and Chinese) and got similar messages, only with different looking characters. Anybody know why my R4 hates me, and how I might go about fixing it?

    You probably have a fake cart [​IMG]

    Sorry I can't be much of help, but you should take that in to account - there are dozens of cheap R4 duplicates.

    I'm pretty sure it's real, it fits every description of what a real one looks like, but even still I suppose it could be a good fake. If I were to get another, would I be looking to go another R4, or is there a better flash card thingo out there?

    Thanks mate, that worked. Problem is, now the menus are all in chinese. Any idea how to make it english, or am I stuck with it as is?

    It shouldn't be that hard.

    I mean, there are what, 3 buttons?

    I know it's easy, I'm just a little OC, and if it's not all english, then I get annoyed. More of an appearance thing than ease of use.

    try this first


    You can change the system language with the following procedure:

    1.) Go to the main menu.
    2.) Touch the DS icon at the bottom of the screen.
    3.) Select the pink icon, then a menu will appear. Touch the
    3-D sphere to show the languages.
    4.) Select "English", press the A Button, and your done!


    if that fails

    your might have to patch it to english

    have a look here

    hope this helps !


    let me know how you get on
