    Yup.

    Both before and after are identical. The flasher goes through the motions but in the log it states there is an error writing the file.

    I get this after the flash is complete:

    Reading...
    Checking 003F0000
    Writing Chunk 003F0000
    Chunks written 64 (00000040)

    Restoring Complete!


    But then in the log file I have this:

    [ERROR]: writeNor: failed to read

    I have a console with litterally fried NAND (shitty hardmod / error F800FE bluescreen) and i've received the card today. In the broken console, the screens stay in black (i put the magnet, i do the button combo while powering on), and in my working console, i can't tell if the exploit worked because it has already B9S.

    I've already tried with Luma and with GM9.

    I'm doing something wrong?

    If both dumps match it should be working, unless they have some anti-counterfeit system going on.
    Did you try restoring the "working as a normal flashcart" dump from @pandavova ?

    Put godmode9 as ntrboot.firm on the bricked console and try doing the magnet combo with the flashcart.

    I used the flasher from here:
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/r4i-b9s-flashcart-tested-and-impression.484620/page-18#post-7630718

    And the backup that @pandavova provided here:

    It seems that the guys from R4I-SDHC just released an official flasher to convert their B9S cart to a regular DS cart. Apparently it works the other way around too, and converts their regular DS cart to a B9S one.

    It's possible to flash the r4i RTS with the new flasher?
    Thanks

    Nvm, I was told it actually boots "b00t.firm", not "boot.firm". Try renaming the file and trying again.

    The thing is, it hasn't flashed anything to the card. The dump is identical to the bricked dump I made

    Has anyone else tried it? Writing something that is (a lot of successful dumps to backup.bin has been made)

    Yeah, the one above had a sanity check that would fail if the NOR was garbage.

    Try this.

    It certainly seems to be doing something the other hadn't.

    It's currently writing chunk 12 (I assume out of 64) and has a process bar for each one.
