Hello Jade,

A loading screen freeze usually means that there's the wrong version of the software installed. You have to make sure it was made for your specific model of R4, and there are a few out there. Check the packaging of your card for a manufacturer's website.

If you suspect that you have unstable fake clone version, or need to upgrade to a R4 SDHC you can get a genuine card there too. http://www.dscardworld.com I managed to find this site after I got burned at a few others.

Loved having my emails responded to because I had loads of questions, and they were quick to ship it. They test each card before sending them. US based support and shipping I believe.

Best of luck!

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

DS Lite with R4 Card: Games keep freezing up - please help!


You have to put the R4 v1.18 kernel on the memory card for it to work.
R4 web site is http://r4ds.cn/
In the download section is the r4 manual follow that and you should be ok.
