    Hi! i just downloaded some custon firmware for my nintendo 3ds, and got fbi and homebrew launcher on it. i downloaded r4i launcher, and managed to start the r4, but when i chose one of the games i had on it it just froze. i got so mad because i had been doing this for a couple of hours, and turned the 3ds off. now when i turned the 3ds on again, it wouldnt start, only the blue led was on. i tried to take out the r4, and then i managed to turn the 3ds on, but when i put the r4 back in when the 3ds is on it just freeze, and if i try to put it in before i start the 3ds, it wont start

    Welcome to GBAtemp.
    This sounds like a bad R4 and/or contact issues. Try another DS system, preferably the original DS "Phat" or a DS Lite.

    You can replace the R4 with TWiLight Menu++

    For more and faster replies please post your questions in the appropriate section in the future.

    i tested the r4 on my ds lite, and it started just fine, but i didnt start any games as i just fixed the kernel on it, and i wanted to fix it for my 3ds right away

    by the way, it is a r4i gold pro if that has anything to say

    If a flashcart freezes a 3DS this is normally a defect or contact problems. Try cleaning the contacts with electronics cleaner or isopropyl alcohol.
    Maybe the paper trick could help (no idea if applicable on your R4).

    I don't have any other ideas. Since it freezes before starting the kernel there is not much else that could be done.

    Good luck!
