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 ?
Download latest firmware patch, for example, 3DSV7.0.0-13 upgarde firmware.rar, decompress and extract this rar file with tool WinRar, find and get fwUpdateAll_V7.00.nds, copy and save it to the same place where kernel saved on your memory card. 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.

Note: This firmware update is only for genuine R4 Dual Core (2013 /2014), it does not apply to fake r4 dual core or other versions. For more firmware upgrade guides, you can search and discuss at YouTube R4woodcenter.

  1. My dsi doesnt read the r4

    Posted by Anonymous customer on 20th Jan 2018

    I actualiced the dsi and it stopped from reading the r4 sdhc dual core... i've tried a lot of things but it still doesnt do anything, it just doesnt recognice it and i dont know what to do... Help please =(
    If your r4 card was not firmware broken, we usually test it via two methods.
    Clean the metal contact bars with soft paper to move away dirty or others on it.
    Run the r4 card on other console and then restart your dsi with r4 card inside.
    If none of them above works, r4 card may be broken or there is something wrong with your dsi slot or dsi system.

  2. Why Me!!!

    Posted by Anonymous customer on 1st Jan 2018

    I was cleaning my games but by mistake I deleted all of the files! When I redownload the kurnel it did not work!! PLEASE HELP ME MY MOM WILL KILL ME!!!!!
    Download kernel from this page http://old.r4wood.com/products/R4-SDHC-Dual-Core-for-3DS-XL-LL-3DS-2DS-DSi.html

  3. Loading Screen

    Posted by Mick on 8th Dec 2017

    Hi i tried eveything but it wont just work it shows the loading screen and nothing happens. Is it because im using my smart phone for extracting and transferring the file shoud i use a computer instead? And what kernel should i download i have the r4i sdhc 2017 and im using it for ds lite any feedback would be appreciated thanks
    Please contact us and send your r4 photo so that we can get to know which kernel it should be used.

  4. Not Working

    Posted by Bazam on 31st Oct 2017

    I tried all the kernels above and they are not working, they all get stuck at a 'Loading...' screen with a black background. On r4isdhc.com it also says that these cards are fake. I have formatted it and tried other kernels from other websites but still doesn't work.
    How did you install the kernel ? Have you tried other memory card ? And your Order ID please.
    We tested every r4 card on our console before shipping out in case of quality problem.

  5. The UI looks terrible

    Posted by Anonymous customer on 29th Oct 2017

    is their any themes for it that works all I find is for the SDHC.COM R4 and SDHC.HK no longer exist
    Can share themes of acekard

  6. Does its job

    Posted by Kmm on 24th Oct 2017

    It does its job, most of the games I tried works fine.
    I have just a question: Does it have a time bomb? (I guess you won't tell me happily yes but at least I will take your answer as a honest one)
    Currently very few r4 cards for your option now, kernel update for ds games are almost dead

  7. Moonshell

    Posted by Anonymous customer on 8th Oct 2017

    This cart is OK and cheap. It does the job of playing NDS games but can soft brick easily if you don't use the right kernel for it. So use only the kernel linked above.

    Can you also upload the moonshell that's compatible with this cart? The link above doesn't work anymore.
    Download and install MoonShell 2.10 Stable Child Zwai Edition talked in product page above.

  8. question

    Posted by Josh Lane on 28th Sep 2017

    if i buy a memory card with this do you install the kernel for me or do i still have to do it
    For order with memory card, if you want us to install kernel for you, please leave your requirement at order comment. We will do as required. Regards

  9. question

    Posted by Anonymous customer on 26th Sep 2017

    does this work with the old 3ds xl running 11.1.0-34E
    Sure, works fine.

  10. its ok

    Posted by Gareth on 13th Sep 2017

    r4isdhc.hk is no longer available for the kernel.
    Had to use the YS menu kernel.
    Loads some roms and not others.
    Used same roms on my other R4 card and they work fine.
    Would using the r4isdhc.hk kernel work better?
