    Depends on what cart it is, post a picture of it.
    Yeah, that is the best one out of all the R4 clones. Don't know why the r4ids.cn kernel wouldn't work though, it should be the same file.

    Yep, as there's lots of different R4 cards & we'd like to make sure it's the right one.

    I have a r4i 3ds rts from r4i-sdhc (.) com and i patched ysmenu to autoboot and bypass the timebomb. Could also work on your card. All files stolen from RetroGameFan.

    too bad the compatibility suffers. A lot of the later games freeze during certain sections on r4i-sdhc.com (and r4isdhc.com) cards using ysmenu. Golden Sun will, for example, not boot to the title screen most of the time. Pokemon Black/White/B2/W2 will not let you start a new game, they'll freeze when the game asks for your name, etc.

    I'm kinda confused... I got a R4 3DS Gold Pro card for a review for free and it is indeed from r4isdhc.com, so does it have a timebomb? If yes how can I get around it or remove it completely?

    To be sure that it have or not set the year of the 3ds to 2030 or so....if red message shows up so yeah you have it.

    To prevent it you can either update the kernel each year or just set the date to an old one.

    Quick question, I recently bought a card and don't know if it has a timebomb.

    Oh, I thought R4 cards had timebombs, not kernels.

    How to bypass a timebomb :
    • Update the kernel every year (availlability may vary)
    • Change the System Clock in DS Settings (You can do it for only the DS i think...)
    • Install YSMenu on your card (Compatibility may be affected)
    • Switch to something like TwilightMenu++ (formerly known as TWLoader...) (Compatibility could vary, especially on DSi Games)
    • Change your flashcart (a bit extreme but works) (Another r4, a DSTT, an Acekard, a DSONE/DSTWO/DSTWO+ or a Gateway [Overkill])
    The timebomb is caused by the kernel, it can be avoided by flashing another kernel, however, you would need to reverse-engineer your own cart and make your own kernel... You can test a timebomb by changing your date to something higher than 2023 i think... If a message shows up, it contains one.

    NO, a "timebomb" won't make your house explode after a certain time, don't worry...

    As fas as I know, flashcarts with Timebomb are: R4i sdhc 3ds rts, r4i b9s from R4i-sdhc.com, R4i gold pro, R4i dual core, R4isdhc rts lite 2019/2018/2017 or any old version cards from R4isdhc.com, R4i gold eu 3ds from R4i-gold.eu.

    Flashcarts without Timebomb are: R4i gold 3ds rts, R4i gold 3ds plus. Stargate 3ds and Sky3ds+.

    You can choose the r4 card without timebomb, such as the r4i gold 3ds plus, I have one r4i gold pro, but also has timebomb, last month, I purchased one r4i gold 3ds plus again from Flashcarda.com
