    lots of r4 clones mix uo the terms between kernal and firmware..

    basically a kernel (in basic computer terms) is the core of the OS that make it do it's thing (file management running roms ect

    a firmware is like a bios of a computer which controls how it starts up

    The "kernel" is the OS/Software, often.

    Kernel is software that the card runs.
    AKAIO, Wood, Sakura and the files you put onto your microSD are the kernel.

    Firmware is what is on the DS/DSi and can be updated (except for on the DS).
    It is also the update for cards that allows them to be run on DSi/3DS.
