    Hi, how the title says yesterday I bricked my r4 trying to use Ysmenu, probably the reason why this failed was because the r4 is a clone. Now when I insert it to the console no icon is showing and is not beign detected. Is there something I can to do unbrick it? Please help :(

    Yes, you would need the said flashcard nds firmware update
    EDIT: Is this your card?, If yes do you have any other ways of running .nds on your console?

    Not to hijack this thread but ive also got a bricked R4 that i would like to be able to recover. It's a R4 SDHC RTS LITE 2014 most probably a clone.

    Try running this file and attempt a cart firmware update(The cart must be inserted before turning on the console)

    Don't hijack anything because the file to update (attached as @ am714) is the same for both flashcards.
    Is yours also briched by trying to start ysmenu?

    The flashcard for now is locked and you can't start the update from there, you can insert the flashcard even without micro sd with the files.

    NB: I think @am714 meant to start the update file from HBMenu, but wait for him to confirm this.

    I bricked it by using a wrong kernel or something like that. I will give it a try.

    To try this, you have to start that file from another flashcard, then remove this flashcard, insert the locked flashcard and start the update procedure.
    Wait for it to complete the update.
    good luck

    That only works for NDSs not newer consoles
    Try running the file from hbmenu else you will need to buy a nds lite

    I think it costs less than a new flashcard :)

    Completes fine on a DSi but the card doesnt get picked up by the system on rebbot. I then try DS Lite with hot swap but that gets stuck on erasing.
