    If you're sure you still have the right files on the MicroSD, then it sounds like the flash didn't work properly and the cart's bricked. You'll need an original DS or a Lite and a second flash cart to unbrick it.

    1 - Put the DSTTi with the upgrade file for the R4i in the DS.

    2 - Start the upgrade file, but don't tell it to do the upgrade just yet.

    3 - Take the DSTTi out, take it's MicroSD out.

    4 - Put the R4i and the MicroSD in it into the DS.

    5 - Hit A or whatever to do the update.

    Hey dude. Im in the exact same situation as OP. I updated my R4 Dual Core "NEW" with the R4 Dual Core "2013" firmware ( http://www.r4isdhc.com/download_white_new2013/ ). Now mine shows a blank white screen as well.
    Does your suggestion really help??

    If you have an original DS/Lite and the update you're using allows cart-swapping (some cart teams put out updates that do, others don't).

    You can try using an older firmware update file, one from when it worked.
