:| Oh. My. God.

People are making things more confusing than they are. I do not know about R4 clones, but here's a simple process for creating YsMenu + new DSTT firmware with a genuine R4:


1) Download the following modified R4SysAuto from http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?e2mfndlinzw. Credit goes to GBATemp for this link; this is the ESSENTIAL file for creating YsMenu and already contains the updated DSTT firmware (that makes Mario and Luigi: BIS and the recent KH game work).

2) Download the LATEST YsMenu. I can't provide a direct link due to the maker's request, but the link can be found here: http://home.usay.jp/pc/etc/nds/
Simply SCROLL DOWN until you reach a topic with "DS(T_T)DS" in turquoise. Click the link that says "2009/03/27 00:00:EZ3in1+ NOR." Do NOT click the link that says "YSMenu(2009/03/21 17:00)" as that is a slightly older version.

3) Extract downloaded file from step 1 into a folder. In this folder, also place the file downloaded from step 2 (without extracting).

4) Run R4.bat and choose the following: EN, R4, Yes, Yes, EN, 1 (or 4, your choice), and Off.

5) Once it completes, it'll create and open a zip file for you. Extract this into your SD Card root. It'll either be TTMenu + _DS_MENU.DAT if you chose 1 to replace firmware, or a .NDS file if you chose to 4 (from step 4).

6) Run the new firmware + working games. Done and enjoy.

So far I have gotten past the save select screen and all seems fine.

Works great here on my original genuine R4, nice work to whoever created this :)
