    I was injecting ntrboot in my flashcard but after doing that, my ds freezes and my 3ds doesn´t recognize it? I think it is bricked, so, what can I do? I have a r4i sdhc gold pro 2017. Sorry for my bad English.

    Your 3DS isn't meant to recognise it after flashing with ntrboot. Have you tried actually using it for ntrboot yet?

    If you flashed it with NTRBoot, it is normal that you can't see it in home menu. You have to reflash it back to stock (via ntrboot_flasher). You need to have backup of its flash (Section V).

    Quantumcat yes but it doesn´t work I also deleted all the files of the micro sd of the flashcard and I put the kernel on it again and my ds still freezes so do you know any method to unbrick the flashcard? I accidentally deleted also the ds ntrbootflasher.nds file because I am a noob in these things

    My way is the only way (AFAIK). But if I were you, I would still try and boot from it. Maybe you are just not holding all the buttons or your magnet is not strong enough. What does your 3DS do, when you are holding the button with magnet without the flashcard? (it should wait, till you let off the buttons)

    Kubas_inko but i think i deleted the ds_ntrbootflasher.nds file after injecting ntrboot so i think it is not flashed with ntrboot but my ds freezes and my 3ds does not recognize it even having the ds_ntrbootflasher.nds file deleted

    Once it is flashed, it won't (can't) read the SD, until you reflash it back.

    So, even having all the kernel files deleted and having put them back after i injected ntrboot, and having the ds_ntrbootflasher.nds deleted is my flashcard still flashed?

    So did you try your magnet in home menu? If it does put the system into sleep you may well have a faulty button

    Do you have proper files in your SD? Also, try fiddling with that flashcart, it can have bad contact. Also, what does it do when you hold all the buttons and the magnet stays in place? (It should wait, till you remove the magnet or till you stop pushing single button)

    in the flashed flashcard sd I have got the kernel files and the ds_ntrbootflasher.nds file and in my 3ds flashcard I have got the boot9strap file with boot9strap.firm and boot9strap.firm.sha the 3dsx.firm file and the SafeB9sinstaller.firm file renamed as boot.firm I think these are the correct files. When I hold all the buttons with the magnet in place the light blue of the console turns on but when I stop holding the buttons the light blue turns off.
