R4 problem - blank screen after loading
My ex bought me an R4 a few year back and I hadn't loaded it to the MircoSD card yet. At the time I used the card for my cell phone and MP3 player. I'm getting a new phone that won't use the MircoSD card so I finally loaded the R4 files. It ran grate and I played several games.
Later I found out there was a new kernel update so I downloaded V18 and tried to load it. After the loading screen, the screen would just be blank. I took it to my Ex where he was able to just copy the files over and it ran fine. Even the themes worked. He said it seemed like I had just forgotten a file or something.
Well it's been running fine and now that the themes were working, I thought, I should try to upload a few new ones. So I placed them in the proper folders with all the right files and they don't work. It acted like I had no theme at all, just the default.
So I wiped the card one more time and tried to upload the new kernel again and I'm getting the same blank screen as before. I have checked and rechecked and I have all the files I need for it to run. I even tried the original CD kernel V10 and it's still a blank screen.
I also noted that when I boot the NDS and it hangs on the blank screen, I checked the card and saw it failed to create the _ds_menu.sys file. Not sure if that's the problem or whatnot but if the information helps, I figured I'd say everything that's happend.
Any help would be lovely and I'll be checking back often on replies.
