    R4 and DS Lite Issue

    Hi guys,

    My first post here. My girlfriend has given me her Nintendo DS Lite as she has gotten an 3DS now. Anyway a long time ago when I first bought it her we decided to get an R4 card for it. We bought it online for 30 (this was probably 3-4 years ago now)

    Anyway now she has given it me Im now trying to get it working again as it worked in the past.

    Firstly here is a picture of the R4 card that I have

    As you can see it is an "R4 Upgrade Revolution for DS". I also have an 8gb Micro SD card. I was wondering if anyone could guide me as to which firmware I need. I have been on this website here and half way down the page there is a section for "R4-SDHC kernel download(without mark)"

    Now im guessing this is the correct firmware that I need however when ever I download the current version for it which is 1.55b and then launch the DS I get this screen

    It just freezes there until I turn off the DS. I guess the card is still working but im running the wrong firmware version.

    I was wondering if anyone could help me getting this working. I've been looking at this for the past 2 days now and still not getting anywhere. I hope someone can help.

    Hi Red_Ghost. Would you be able to confirm to me which R4 card I actually have? There are several compatible firmware for certain cards using Wood firmware. I'm not entirely sure which is my actual card.

    A clone but Im not sure. Wood firmware doesnt work with clones AFAIK but its worth a shot.

    I think you'll have more luck searching for "wood for clones".

    I can't remember where exactly I found it, but there was a patched wood that was made to work with R4 clones.

    It seems a very old card and no so famous card. IMO,you should exchange a new card ,which more popular and you can get more technology support.If you like r4 series,you can take r4i gold 3ds as well as r4isdhc 3ds into account,both of these two cards with quicker firmware update and the price were cheaper too.I have tested my r4i gold 3ds on my 3ds and my sister's ndsl,it works well.Maybe you can give it a shot ! Good Luck ~
