SOURCE: Nds roms not working

Usually when there are problems with booting roms on the r4 it is because the kernel is out of date. Download the latest kernel for your r4 at http://www.r4ds.com/download-en.htm
If the games still don't work, you might need to replace the arm7.bin file in the game. To do this, you will need to use a program called DSLazy. You can download it here. So to replace the arm7.bin, you will need a nds rom that works without the arm7.bin fix.
Step One: Start DSLazy.
Step Two: Browse for the file that works without the fix (I use Tetris DS)
Step Three: Click Unpack. This will create a new folder called NDS_UNPACK
Step Four: Move the arm7.bin inside the new folder somewhere safe. Close DSLazy
Step Five: Complete steps 1-3 again.
Step Six: Now open NDS_UNPACK that you just created with the game you want to fix and put the arm7.bin that you moved from step four into the NDS_UNPACK to replace the one already in there with the new one.
Step Seven: Click NDS Packer in DSLazy. This will create a new version of the game you want to fix with a new arm7.bin
Step Eight: You are done. Copy the game to your r4 and load it. The game should work.

If this didn't work, which shouldn't happen, try re-downloading your roms.
If it STILL doesn't work, there might be a problem with your r4, and you might want to get it fixed or get a new one.

~hope this helps.

SOURCE: r4 problem cant find save file

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.

SOURCE: freezed on loading screen !!!!!!!!!

Hi, the original R4 revolution will only worked up to kernel 1.16 or 1.17 or 1.18 (cant remember its one of them). Anything that is higher than that are for the R4 SDHC and others (different type). R4 Cards can be pretty confusing as there are many types (original v2, v3, SDHC, supercard...etc) and they all have their own website. Cant remember the link to the original one but you can get the software at http://nds-gear.com/software-r4v2.zip

Hopefully this one should work for you

Format it and re-install the OS GUI. Then put the unzipped NDS file in the game directory and make sure you have a large enough miniSD. Also try taking it out and putting it back in a few times, sometimes that is all they need.

does it still work with original games if so you may need to update the firmware on the r4 card if not then take the ds back while its still in warrentry as there is no way they can tell what cartridge you've put in the slot1 part of the ds as all the firmware is on the sd card and never transfered to the ds

Problem with r4 and ds lite


Try the paper shim trick first. It could be that the older NDSL's slot one contacts have become "sprung" and aren't making good contact.

Cut a piece of paper slightly narrower but longer than the R4. Put it on the non-contact side of the R4 and insert the R4 (with the paper on the back) into slot 1. It may increase the thickness of the R4 such that the slot 1 fingers now make contact.
