This is a problem with the R4 Kernel which has not been updated in a long time and probably wont.

use this instead its a Replacement for the R4 Kernel which is based on the DSTT 1.16 firmware.

simple copy the new files to your R4 and games will boot fine.

R4i working SLOW on DSi. Loads slow and make save files slow.???


cause DSI is the nintendos attempt to stop R4 card users! see the r4 and GnM cards made nintendo invest in a microsd slot! so try using that card with the dsi instead of the R4 as people now are hacking the micro sd slot to allow any ds rom to be played! faster then th R4 due to the fact that the micro sd is connected right to the motherboard of a ds game slot devices such as R4

Need to know how to get games to work with my r4 ds revoultion card.downlosded software but cant get games to work .do i have to extract them?


First get the R4 OS installed onto the card (into the root dir), then make a sub directory called NDS. Put your .NDS files into that directory. you should now have a couple of sub dirs, NDS, Moonshl2, and r4iMenu or something similar. and some r4 OS files in the root directory.

R4 should boot, then pick the left icon (games) and load a game from the resulting list.

Yes you must extract the files. It won't play from a zip file. all files must end in .NDS for them to work. There are a lot of cool homebrew out there for these cards, have fun.

R4 card the save data could not be accessed .


[DS] Cannot access save data fix. Some cards like the R4 and a few other cards have trouble running certain games,
With the exception of one game "Star Wars Jedi Alliance" All games can be fixed to work on these lower qaulity cards.


So why is it broken?
Basicly at some point during development nintendo changed the way save files are handled, saves are handled by a file inside all ds roms called "arm7.bin", older cards such as the R4 and others have no way of reading or using this updated arm7, so the solution is to swap the newer arm7 with an older arm7 taken from a working game.

This is refered to as an arm7 patch, swap or fix.


So how do i fix it?
First of all just try update your cards firmware. Firmwares for all cards


If that doesnt work there are a few programs out there that you can use to arm7 swap, DSlazy and DSbuff.
DSbuff being a more up to date program.

DSbuff v.1 Final link: DSbuff

Extract with 7zip, winrar or winzip: 7 Zip

Pre extracted arm7.bin from Contra 4: arm7.bin
If you download the arm7.bin put it in the folder you create in step one then you can skip step 2 completly.


NOTE: If DSbuff doesnt work properly on your computer *for example the program crashes during the arm7 swap follow this guide for DSlazy* DSlazy links and guide


DSBuff Instructions:

Step one: Set-Up
Create a folder on your desktop and name it the game you want to fix.
Extract DSbuff anywhere and start it.

Step two: Unpacking
Run DSbuff.exe and click browse dsbuffbrowse.png now choose a game you have that works.
Click unpack dsbuffunpack.png then browse dsbuffbrowse.png in the new drop down section.
Choose the folder you created on your desktop
Click "Unpack Checked" and make it so only Arm7 has a tick.
Now click dsbuffunpack2.png

Step three: arm7 swap.
Click the Drive:\ directory up the top or just restart DSbuff and click browse, now select the game your trying to fix.
Click on arm7 dsbuffarm7swap.png then browse dsbuffbrowse.png and choose arm7.bin from your folder you created. Now click dsbuffarm7swaptick.png
Watch the green line to see when its done, it will unpack, then repack then when its finished give you the option of what to name the file.

Congratulations your finished, enjoy your game.

R4 NDSL Nintendo DS


Go to the manufacturers web site and download the latest OS files to put them in your memory card root. That would fix the problemand you should have updated files.
In the case of the games, music and other files in the card before the deletion you must get them again and put one by one in the memory. By the way if that was a complete deletion any game saved file is lost.
