    From what I've read there are successful attempts flashing (NDS?) r4i-sdhc firmware over the original R4i B9S, on a R4i B9S? I'm interested in the (almost) opposite, flashing B9S to a R4i 3DS WiFi RTS (stock firmware). Has that been done? Successfully? If not, should I attempt to flash a backup from a R4i B9S (like @pandavova posted) on my R4i 3DS WiFi RTS using an already modded O3DS and the ntrboot_flasher posted by @Kitlith in this thread previously?

    Could you please dump the flash after you've converted it to a "normal" flashcart and upload it here for us?

    Also interesting, has anyone revived a seemingly bricked R4i (3DS/B9S) using the ntrboot_flasher build and some backup.bin posted in this thread?

    Ok, here its is. There are two files, the nds.bin and the ntrboot.bin.
    (It's a normal .rar)

    Is it possible if you could dump the .nds file from godmode9 with your cart in ds mode?

    Waiting to get my new card. @pandavova Does the new flasher work correctly 100% with reverse flashing the B9S Cards? I don't want to brick another card ;-;

    Why don't you try restoring @pandavova 's flash with the custom ntrboot_flasher? That should unbrick the cart

    It doesn't. The custom flasher doesn't write the firmware

    Is it possible to make one that does write to the bricked/regular cards?

    Didn't write, it's still 0 bytes card in GodMode9 and no home menu icon.

    Woops, I'm dumb. I had the cart out while restoring flash. Retrying. xD

    Oh well, that's a shame then.

    Did you dump you flash after restoring it? Does it match the backup.bin?
