    Hi, I just got a R4i 3ds 2 days ago. I was able to do the ntrboothax hack with it on the first day on a 3ds XL on 11.5. Since then None of my old 2ds or new 3ds or old 3ds can read it!

    Tried to add the paper thins behind it to tried to see if the contact was not touching but no luck there…
    Tried reformatting the micro SD card and putting back the files one it… But still no luck…
    Tried to clean the contact using alcohol… Not luck…

    It’s like if they weren’t any card in it!


    This is the R4i RTS gold from r4ids.cn.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Have you flashed the original firmware back to it?

    The ntrboothax flasher app should have made a backup when you flashed it. Run the app again and choose to restore the card.

    How are you attempting to load the flasher app? I'm pretty sure you need to use the .firm version that can be loaded by luma chainloader. IDK where the app saves the files if you use the .nds build of the app so you may need to sort that out but either way the card will not work as a flashcard til you restore it's original firmware.
