    [​IMG] Wood R4 v1.04
    NEW Firmware
    [​IMG]

    I can hardly contain my excitement for this GBATemp exclusive. Yellow Wood Goblin has just released to me his brand new firmware, Wood R4 v1.04. This firmware is a replacement for the R4 1.18 firmware and only supports the Original R4 Flash Linkers. This Firmware is not for R4 clones, use of it on clones may result in unforeseen problems. When asked why support the R4, his response was "why not?"! The code is based in part on advancements made during the last public release of Wood R.P.G., users can expect the same coding quality, the same compatibility, basic wii-connectivity, and future updates.

    This is the 1st public release, and exclusive to GBATemp. There are bound to be things that do not work as they should, so please take the time to test and report your findings. Please be sure to make use of this discussion thread to post your bug reports.

    GBATemp will closely follow this thread for potential party poopers. Remember this is an achievement to be embraced not a chance to voice your opinions on the R4, the history of the R4, or the people who choose to continue to use their original R4.




    Setup:
    Place the _rpg directory and the _DS_MENU.DAT into the ROOT of your microSD card.

    Compatibility:
    Everything that works on Wood R.P.G. should work on Wood R4. Wood R.P.G. has 99.8% compatibility. I won't say it is 100% because there could be the occasional glitch or bug. All future Anti-Piracy ROMs are not supported but could possibly be fixed on a 1:1 basis.

    Support:
    There is confirmation that this is working on the Original R4, the R4 SD clones, and the M3 Simply.

    Skins:
    This is a port of Wood R.P.G. so this will use the same skins used on the R.P.G. as the GUI has not changed.

    Saves:
    Wood R4 supports RAW format save files named ROM-NAME.nds.sav. You will need to rename your save files in order to make use of them.

    Why use this over YSMENU?
    This is a full firmware replacement. Expect all of the features of a modern firmware. Including Wii-connectivity, Cheats, Themes, Short-cuts, etc. Everything Wood R.P.G. does on the Acekard R.P.G. this firmware does on the R4 (except for on the fly A.P. patching for yet to be released ROMs). This firmware will continue to be updated, tweaked, fixed, optimized, etc. It is time to say goodbye to YASU's YSMENU by giving your R4 Wood!

    So... a GENUINE R4 firmware based on RPG source?

    The problem is, once the source is released, it's going to pop up on all of the R4 clones etc.

    Still cool though.

    I assume this will greatly help the new shop place, considering you can buy an R4 from their site cheaper than most stores...

    Wow... Now this sounds awesome for "old" R4-Users (original R4 and stuff). Once I get my R4 back I'll test the shit out of that. [​IMG]

    Is it like the R4 GUI or the Wood R.P.G GUI? I would test it but my R4 fell behind the wardrobe. :\

    contact them and get confirmation those are 2+yr old stock before you purchase. the original r4 team is gone, they aren't making original r4s any longer. those might be old stock but it doesn't say so on the page. before everyone gets word of this release it might be time to hit up the trading forum at gbatemp and pick up a few for next to nothing! i'm spending the day calling people i gave r4s too, who now have new cards, and trying to get them back. lol. thankfully i still have one in my flash linker toy box.

    Will it work on those? Cause I'd consider those clones. Do they mean R4i, R4i Gold, etc? So it still works on the normal SD R4's, even if they're not "originals"?

    Yes it has, since M3 simply is an R4 in disguise [​IMG]

    @Issac: Yep i know, but i thought it might check which hardware it was running on anyway and perhaps not work on M3S. Well i just sold my M3S anyway so..
