Although i will not condone game piracy as appears to be the case here, maybe you should update the firmware,

keeping in mind it's this sort of blatent piracy that kills the game industry.

With the r4i gold, th game Wario: master of disguise just loads, then the screen goes white and then the screen goes black and doesn't do anything. the ds is fully charged so it can't be that either.

You should try downloading a different rom. It sounds like the one you have is corrupt. It might also be that the R4i simply has problems playing that game. I hope that helps!

My r4i has stopped working i turn on my dsi and click the icon for the r4i and then the bottom screen goes black and the top screen goes white and a picture of a red box that sort of looks like a micro sd...

I had the same problem... its actually really easy to solve. You probably downloaded the wrong kernal for your r4. all you really have to do is to download the one that matches your r4.

My son's hyper-R4i card is not loading. White Screen.

I have the exact same problem except it was me who dumbly clicked on the update firmware file. I'm thinking the problem has something to do with the firmware on the actual card.

My R4i gold v1.4 with mario on the box. Only get white screen


I've recently purchased the same R4i with the mario on the box. This R4 apparently comes from a bizarre manufacturer and is really crappy. I've managed to make it work on my DS Lite, though.

I've downloaded the Kernel files on the link below and copied it to the microSD:

This should make it work. However, games will take forever to load/create .sav files (abou 5-10 min).

I would suggest you to attempt get your money back (assuming that is a possibility).
