R4 SDHC Dual Core Setup

For any system version above, you need only install kernel to play your DS games.
1, R4 Dual Core Kernel Installation
Download latest corresponding revised wood kernel r4isdhc1.xx.rar to your computer, decompress and extract this rar file with tool WinRar, find and get __rpg folder and _DS_MENU.dat as shown below. Copy and paste these 2 items into the root directory of your memory card. Now, you can plug and play the saved DS games. (Note: Do not decompress into your sd memory card directly, it may get a white sreen when booting the r4 card)

2, If www.r4isdhc.hk is down for maintainance, you can download this non-official YSMenu kernel (Dualcore) to load ds games, installation is the same as above.

3, R4 dual core shipped after Oct 17th, 2017, please use download and use kernel dualcore20171017.

3, R4 Dual Core Firmware Update
If your console blocks R4 Dual Core and gets a black screen with power off error message, now you need to do firmware upgrade for your R4 card. Then how ?

Now you need find another console to load into R4 dual core interface, press A button to run that firmware patch. Some program are written into your r4 IC chip during firmware upgrading, and that is why you may damage your r4 card if happens to shut off the console when running the patch.

  1. Doesn't even work

    Posted by Unknown on 8th Aug 2017

    Got my R4 card in the post. Followed the instructions on this product page and all I'm getting is 'An error has occured' So I put it in a DS lite and tried to run it and it came up with just a white screen.
    I've tried 2 SD cards and it's still not working.
    Every r4 card is tested on our consoles in case of quality problem. Please download and use the YSMenu kernel on this page. By the way, use the Kingston / Sandisk SDHC memory card, not other format memory card.

  9. White Screen

    Posted by Eleventh_sign on 1st Jul 2017

    I have the 2016 Dual Core www.r4isdhc.hk cart with firmware version 7.07. It was working with the kernel I downloaded in the link above. I tried to to see if I can use YSMenu.nds as new kernel so I copied and pasted the "R4i-sdhc YSMenu" folder from "RetroGameFan Multi Cart Update v7.04". Now I am getting a white screen when starting the cart. When it was working I could see "loading" and then it will load the kernel after. Now its just a white screen. I tried to find 7.07 firmware anywhere so I could reflash the cartridge but couldn't find it. Can anyone help?
    Please download and use Dualcore linked in this product description page, it has added YSMenu.
