DSOnei SDHC YSMenu folder #

  • DSONE SDHC (and its future clones) (The non-SDHC version is NOT supported)
  • DSONEi
  • DSONEi mini

M3Real_M3iZero YSMenu folder #

  • The following carts will work as-is:
    • M3 DS Real
    • M3i Zero (the GMP-Z003 version is NOT supported)
  • For the following carts, also download the iTouchDS bootstrap for YSMenu:
    • iTouchDS
    • R4(i) SDHC (r4rts.com)
    • R4 SDHC RTS black version (r4isdhc.com)

R4SDHC YSMenu folder #

  • This folder is up to speculation, but if your cart has no URL, has the “R4” logo and the “SDHC” logo, then this is probably supported. Looks similar to this image here.
  • Some OG R4 SDHC’s are actually DSTTi “demon” clones. If it looks like the cart linked above but boots to a Menu? screen when an empty sd is inserted, it may instead use the R4i-SDHC YSMenu folder.

R4-Clone YSMenu folder #

  • This requires your original kernel to be installed: however, I do not recommend this way of running games for the Original R4. Use its dedicated kernel instead.
  • The rest are probably useful:
    • R4-III (r4iiinew.com)
    • All carts from r4-pro.com
    • R4-III (r4dsl.net)
    • N5 (dsn5.com)
    • R4iNDSiXL (r4indsill.com)
    • R4 SDHC Christmas Edition (only this cart, running it on any other r4isdhc.com cart may BRICK!) (r4isdhc.com)

R4i-SDHC YSMenu folder #

  • The following carts will work as-is:
    • Most r4i-sdhc.com carts
    • All 2014+ r4isdhc.com carts (not the .com.cn, not the .hk, just .com)
    • Any r4i-sdhc.com.tw carts that didn’t work with DSTTi-Clone YSMenu
    • Any r4i-dshc.com carts that didn’t work with DSTTi-Clone YSMenu
    • Some r4i-best.com carts
    • r4-usas.com 2016 Dual Core carts
    • R4i Advance (r4i-advance.com)
    • R4-III(i) (r4dsl.net)
    • R4i SDHC v2.07 (r4sdhc.com)
    • R4i Pocket (r4ipocket.com)
    • R4i Gold 3DS (r4i-gold.cc)
    • r4i-gold.com v1.4/1.4.1 carts WITHOUT A YEAR NUMBER AND WITHOUT PRO WRITTEN ON THE CART, ANY WITH A YEAR NUMBER OR PRO WILL BRICK!
    • R4xDS (r4xds.com)
    • Some r4ita.com carts - If this fails, try DSTTi Clone folder
    • r4r4.be - R4i-SDHC variant
    • R4i SDHC v1.41 (r4ixl-sdhc.com)
  • For the following carts, download this R4.dat and replace it with the pre-existing one:
    • Any r4i-sdhc.com cart that didn’t work as-is
    • Any r4i-gold.com cart that didn’t work as-is, WITHOUT A YEAR NUMBER AND WITHOUT PRO WRITTEN ON THE CART, ANY WITH A YEAR NUMBER OR PRO WILL BRICK!
    • All r4i-gold.eu carts
    • Any r4ixl-sdhc.com cart that didnt work as is
