    I bought an R4 Revolution from a locale used games store used for 10 bucks. I was pretty excited I went to the R4DS site and downloaded the kernel and put it on a micro SD card. When i turn on my DS it skips the nintendo screen and goes to another screen that says Loading... i know this is the loading screen for the R4. But it stays on that screen. Doesnt do anything at all. I'm really new to DS "hacking?" and don't really know much about this. It could be a really simple issue. Or it could be I just blew 10 dollars on a faulty card. So if anyone has any ideas it would help.

    Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    Wait dude, just use YSMenu for your cart and it will be fine.

    YSMenu should have worked, did you follow the instructions correctly? If not then try formatting your microSD with the panasonic formatter.

    Yeah I had t sort a mate out who had the same problem - the real fimware won't work on a fake card like yours.
