Kernel R4

The zip archive consists of 2 files and 2 directories

Extract them and copy into SD card.

No problem, copy them on SDHC.

At the end fo the setup process, in the  SD device, we will find:

R4TF R4(DS) – Revolution for DS.nds file , that we need to  rename in  _DS_MSHL.nds.


MOONSHL directory

Choose the destination path with Browse.

    When upgrading to Moonshell 2 on the R4 DS, I had to do the following:

    Download kernel 1.23 from here:


    Download Moonshell 2.05 from here:


    Unpack both archives.

    From the kernel archive, copy the following files and folders to the root of your SD card:


    Notice that the moonshl folder is omitted, since it’s an old 1.74 build.

    From the Moonshell archive, copy the following files and folders to the root of your SD card:


    Additionally, you can copy moonmemo and any other skins and tools you wish, but the above files are the minimum you need.

    Lastly, you need to RENAME moonshl2.nds to _DS_MSHL.NDS

    Now, when you choose “music” from the R4 menu, it will boot moonshell 2 instead of either erroring out or making you exec it from the games menu.

    Verified and working, copied using KDE 4.3.1 in Fedora 11. (Previous versions of KDE did *something* wrong and required that I use Windows to perform the copy.)

    Virtual Memory sure is becoming cheaper these days. I wonder when we will eventually hit the ratio of $0.01 to 1 Gig.I’m still waiting for the day when I will finally be able to afford a 20 TB harddrive, lol. But for now I will be content with having a 32 GB Micro SD in my R4i.(Posted on Nintendo DS running R4i SDHC S3)

    Hi guys. The Kernel download noted in Potato’s comments does not seem to contain the _DS_MENU.SYS file that he mentions. I was hoping someone could give me an idea of where to get that file from. Thanks ;-).

  8. luglio 30, 2010 alle 12:36 pm

    What R4’s release?
    You need to download the kernel from the link provided on the box.
    kernels are not equal

    my kernel 1.18 has got:

    it mentions Kernel 1.23. If you download that file from the link provided there is no .SYS file as mentioned. I gather it will be necessary before I do the upgrade.

  10. luglio 30, 2010 alle 1:45 pm

    I think the sys file is created by DS after the first boot.

    Superb website you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any
    community forums that cover the same topics talked about here?

    I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get comments from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Kudos!

  15. ottobre 13, 2012 alle 11:48 pm

    Hi there. I was thinking about adding a website link back to your blog since both of
    our websites are based mostly around the same topic.
    Would you prefer I link to you using your
    website address: https://bancaldo.wordpress.com/2009/05/14/nds-r4-revolution-moonshell/ or web site title: NDS: R4 Revolution + MoonShell bancaldo™.
    Be sure to let me know at your earliest convenience.

    First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick
    question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I’ve
    had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or hints? Kudos!

    When changing the paint color you should go with a lighter color like
    whites or cream colors. No degree is required, but you would inevitably need to go through intensive on-the-job trainings, and pass an examination for getting
    the required license. In fact, none of these
    residential or commercial building would be complete without these
    contractors, trained and qualified in providing various electrical solutions.

    You can also give a magazine subscription if you know what the
    teacher likes. While most are pretty straightforward, it really depends on the creator.
    I will keep my eyes open, and post a comment if one becomes available.

    You can even ask them, if you feel comfortable enough, whether it would be possible
    to try out their machine or your leg or arm. >From my experience, pear shaped women need to focus on light to moderate weights with very high volume repetitions in the
    lower half of their bodies, incorporating lots of cardio workouts too.
    If you belong to the “my comfort comes first type”
    then you should consider something pain free:
    Depilatory cream would be your best choice.
