    Recently I have discovered that I can use other types of kernel in my R4 clone. It uses microSD (2GB).
    I was using the kernel that was developed by the team that created my R4 clone. Now they will not release newer versions of the kernel.

    The old kernel that I used is very bad, the saved game files have MSDOS names and the action-replay codes list is a mess.

    I tried DSTT TTMenu, it is a little slow to load the main menu, but it is better.

    I would like to know the best kernel that I should use in my R4 clone.

    Wood R4 does not officially support r4 Clones (other than R4i gold from http://r4ids.cn/ and R4i DSN from http://www.r4idsn.com/) those are the only 2 clones that officially support Wood R4. Other clones often are running hacked versions or older versions with modified loaders, either way they have no real official support.
    Edit: The best kernel to use on most R4 Clones would be Retro's files here

    Ysmenu is the best Kernel, I suggest going with the link I just posted to Retro's files.

    I downloaded the package and there are many kernels of name with YSMenu.
    DSONE_DSONEi YSMenu
    DSTT_DSTTi YSMenu
    GE_GEi YSMenu
    M3Real_M3iZero YSMenu
    R4_Orginal_R4_Clone YSMenu

    What should I choose?


    I want to run Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin without the patch that removes sound.
    I tried to use Akaio, because someone said that it runs Castlevania.
    http://filetrip.net/nds-downloads/flashcart-files/download-akaio-190-f29895.html
    I put __aio folder and akmenu4.nds in the root.
    When I run the file akmenu4.nds I get a black screen with "akmenu4.nds not found".

    AKAIO is only for Acekards. The R4iTT is a DSTT clone.

    And use the R4_Orginal_R4_Clone YSMenu, I believe you set it up the same way you set up DSTT menu.

    Thanks.

    There is no way to run Castlevania with my R4 and microSD, correct?

    YSMenu with RGF's updates should support it.

    With the latest Ysmenu (retro's files) It should work just fine.
