    I have 2 flashcarts (one has an "R4 SDHC Dual-Core 2013 r4isdhc.com" on it, the other one has a generic fake label on it), whose PCBs look identical to eachother. I have tried many firmware reflasher .nds files, but none of them do reflash the card.

    I have read, that I can only reflash flashcarts on an original DS, because those don't purposely softlock when taking out the cartridge. But my problem is that I can't see anything on the screen, because the upper screen is broken into a million pieces.

    fyi, the flashcart was bricked by YSMenu

    Here are the images of it:

    Wow, I forgot about this thread :P

    Thanks, I'll try. Actually, my problem is that I don't know what is happening, because as I mentioned, the screen is broken into a gajillion pieces. Also, I don't think the flashcart had a different firmware, because the only theme on it was an r4isdhc.com one, but I'll try the others anyways.

    Edit: I need a firmware, not a kernel. I still have the original contents of the SDCard, but the flashcart's ROM chip is what was destroyed by YSMenu.

    I wouldn't get my hopes up anyways because probably none of these cards has a decent unbricker.

    Yes, I tried reflashing a lot of times, but it still doesn't show up. I guess it's completely trashed by YSMenu :(
    Anyways, I got an original R4, but I can't use it, because the bottom menu doesn't show up, and I can't see the problem on the top screen. I have got a 128M SDCard, and I have "_system_", "moonshl", "_DS_MENU.DAT", and "_DS_MSHL.NDS" on it, but it still shows a black top and bottom screen, but the top screen is not so damaged, that I can see some white thing in the middle of the screen, but because of the shatter, I can't see it properly.
