    I always safe remove, and take good care of my r4 and my 2gb sd card. furthermore, they are both about a month old. While i was in a game, i pressed all 4 buttons plus L and R to soft reset. It took me to the main screen, but it was frozen. I restarted the system, and it said SD error. I put my sd card in my comp and it says I need to reformat.

    Two lessons learned: 1) back up your stuff
    2) do not use soft reset in game. just power it off manually.

    sorry I meant to write "SD" not "SC"

    I use in-game soft reset all the time and don't get card corruptions, it's more than likely just a fluke.

    I use it all the time and have never had a problem. Did you delete ds_menu.sys when you updated? That may cause corruption when you use the card.

    ... Dude, update your kernel. That's an ARM7 Protection Error.

    oh i see the problem. on the r4 site, on the main page, it says "newest" kernal, however it is NOT the newest one. you have to go to another page on their site to find the newest one. that is why i was confused.
