    Hi,

    I buied an R4i (Wood compatible, CN Version) from shoptemp.com.
    Today I wanted to upgrade from my 1.21 version that I downloaded form r4ids.cn to 1.22 from filetrip.
    I just delated everything except my roms folder and but the new files on my sd card.

    But wenn try to load wood it stucks on the Loading... screen. Tried 3 different sd cards, same error.
    But back 1.21 from r4ids.cn everything works. What I am doing wrong?

    IIRC WoodR4i Gold (www.r4ids.cn) has to be complied by the team themselves. YWG gives them the source files and they compile it from there.

    So woodr4i will always be a day late. That is why the one 1.21 you downloaded from their homepage works and the 1.21 from filetrip doesn't.

    Wait until R4i Gold team compiles it's own woodr4.

    Alex658: if this is the case, YWG should clarify his description on the filetrip website. It is misleading, as I too thought I could just drag-n-drop and have a running OS.

    YWG shouldn't have to hold your hands through everything

    This has been said by AW several times I recall..
    YWG provides the fixes/source and R4ids.cn team applies them to the firm.
    Go ahead and ask Another World. feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. ^^

    Wait a bit. you've waited a week or two at most for this fixes another day or two max isn't much [​IMG]

    RoMee: I did in fact read the readme. I guess to me it was just unclear that what I was downloading was not meant to be used on my r4i gold. It says that there is another firmware, released by the official team, and that its produced is close cooperation with YWG. Call me a stickler, but it doesn't say anything about the necessity of using the official build with my cn card.

    If this is so. Then for which card is the R4iDSN file on filetrip?

    Haven't you been reading this at all?

    it's not for a card. IT'S FOR THE R4iDSN Team.
    They will compile their OWN wood R4 from THOSE files YWG gave them. (the R4iDSN filetrip link)

    Hope this answers your question. ^^

    I'll make this a simple as I can

    -R4idsn and R4i GOLD is the same team
    -they have two flash cart
    ----r4idsn r4idsn.com
    ----r4i gold r4i gold
    -YWG makes wood for the r4idsn and release it with his regular wood r4
    ----this r4idsn WOOD firmware will work on the r4idsn cart ONLY
    -He than send the r4idsn team a copy of the WOOD R4iDSN firmware
    -The r4idsn team than port it over to their other flash cart the R4iGOLD and relase it a day later

    that is why WOOD for r4i gold, will be release later or tomorrow
