Shame they did not pass on the firmware/kernal editor tool  ::) , RIP .

Some of us would like it!, and keep wood updated  8) .

----------

EDIT:

Seam that the woodR4 updater.dat is reading inflate 1.2.5 Copyright 1995 in txtstring , http://code.haskell.org/zlib/cbits/inftrees.c
It's possible it's using zlib format for encoding / decoding , then using some nintendods - https://github.com/madler/zlib/blob/master/nintendods/Makefile

Also may have some think to do with DevkitARM to.

Yeah it's using zlib:

Code: [Select]
#include "zutil.h"

Hello guys, Im very new to all this flash card stuff and i dont know which Wood version to load and put on my card. I have read so many things about clones and stuff.

I got this R4 card



When I put Wood v1.62 on it(folder _rpg and _DS Menu.dat) on my DS Lite, I always get white screen with Menu ? error. Is that a clone card? And which Wood version should I use to fix this problem.
I hope someone can help me =(

Thanks in advance guys!

@ Angellus,

Your cart is not supported by Wood R4. It can use YSMenu/TTMenu. Topic & download links can be found in the other topic under FLASHCART SECTION.

IIRC the real R4 was discontinued years ago. It's unlikely to still be available.

Not only that, Wood R4 has stopped updating since v.1.62. There are many games that it doesn't support. YSMenu on the other hand is up to date. Thus I don't see any benefit insisting on using that.

Neither YSMenu nor WOOD R4 would interrupt wireless connectivity, its functionality is to support the flash cart. Whether it will pair depends on your DS and Wii, as wireless connection is hardware related and setup through the respective console settings.

Yes that is fine for wood are Ysmenu .

I bought one long ago, and is OK, also then half oval shapes at top of R4 makes it partly original and fine to use, Although you are limited to using a 2GB micro SD card only .

Hi, all. I recently bought an R4i Gold from NDS Gamer. I'm having an incredibly difficult time getting this cart to work. Absolutely nothing I've downloaded will work.

I've downloaded: Wood R4 1.62, R4i_Gold_V1.69b_English, and R4i-3DS V1.81b English. None of these work across any of my systems. Any help would be greatly appreciated - I'm about ready to start tearing my hair out. If it makes any difference, I bought the cart solely to play the English translation of 7th Dragon (NDS). That's it.

Here's what I have:
-Kingston 2GB Micro SD
-SanDisk 8GB SDHC card
-R4i Gold

-3DS XL (8.1.0-12U)
-DSi XL (1.4.1U)
-2DS (9.6.0-24U)

What's the R4i Gold's official website? No, I'm not referring to NDS Gamer's website. The flash cart's. Both your 3DS and 2DS console's firmware blocks the cart's installation. You sure the DSi is on v.1.4.1? If so, installing the kernel via it should have work. I'm suspecting it might actually be v.1.4.3 or even v.1.4.5. Which would also means the cart can't be properly setup on it either.

Wood R4 is not the cart's primary kernel/firmware, and no it is also not a solution to overcome the blockage. You need to properly install the cart's firmware from the cart's official website as per mentioned in its packaging. You might need to use an NDSL.

Cart's site is r4ids cn  All of the firmwares listed above were taken straight from the system settings on each console. When I try to boot the cart, the screen goes white, then black. It never brings anything up. I'm not sure if it's my fault for using incorrect firmware, if my cart is DOA, or if the  firmware on my console is causing the problem.

I used the m3 real on my DS Lite years ago, so I'm slightly familiar with the process. Is it the same installation on these newer systems? Should I be able to download the firmware, put it on my micro SD and go from there?

I appreciate the response. Just trying to get this working. :)

Edit:spam filter got me. Fixed.
