    Hello, I suppose this subject has been dealt with thousands of times, but I can't find a solution to my problem. Let me explain:

    I have recovered an old 3ds that has the problem of black screen at startup, WIFI LEDs, blue LEDs and 3D, I have access to the recovery mode with the key combination. Everything works in recovery mode (screens, speakers, touch screen, wifi...)
    I also have access to the 3ds stop screen by pressing the 3ds power button after the backlight is turned on.
    With all these elements, I couldn't find a solution to get out of the black screen.
    Thank you for your help

    Does your 3ds have cfw? Such as Luma cfw?

    1. Do you have B9S and Luma3DS installed?
    2. What happens when you power on the system while holding down the Select button?
    3. What happens when you boot the 3DS without the SD card?

    1) the 3ds is not cracked, it has no luma or cfw.
    2) always the black screen
    3) always the black screen

    What do you mean you "recovered an old 3ds"? Did you get it second-hand? Are you sure it was never hacked in any way? What happens when you try to update in recovery mode?

    Assuming it's a software problem, I'd recommend using ntrboot to install B9S and perform a CTRTransfer. That should fix the problem.

    It's a 3ds that belonged to a friend, she told me she'd never been cracked. I tried the recovery mode, the system is up to date, and it doesn't change anything.
    I don't really understand how to install B9S without ever being able to turn on the 3ds

    Go with Lacius advice. Hack the o3DS with custom firmware (ntrboot / ds flashcrt) and repair the 3DS firmware with CTRTransfer.

    If that doesn't fix the problem, you might have a variety of this particular Black Screens of Death.

    See the ntrboot capable flashcarts list; only models on that list work. *Except for R4i Gold 3DS Plus and Ace3DS X, requires another (o/n)(2/3)DS(i)(XL/lite/phat) to reflash the cart in ntrboot mode.

    If the label does not state "www.r4iultra.com", it won't work. Too many R4(i) clones look like one another. Reflashing ntrboot on noncompatible flashcart will brick it.

    ntrboot options:

    I check as soon as possible that my R4i is official, if it is, there is still the problem of the system version, it is written that it is necessary to be <=4.3.0, except since I have updated with the recovery mode, I think it is no longer possible

    That's the highest open firmware that a nonhacked 3DS can be when flashing ntrboot to that flashcart due to the Nintendo DS whitelist block. If yours (not your friend's) 3DS is already hacked, you can flash ntrboot using Flashing ntrboot (3DS Multi System) [French].

    Edit - If not hacked, first hack yours with [frog/fred/steel/seed]miner, then reflash ntrboot on the cart once hacked, and finally hack your friend's 3DS followed by CTRTransfer.

    if I understood correctly, with any linker (like the one I have) as long as I have another cracked 3ds, I can install ntrboot on my 3ds not cracked, is that correct?

    If you have a 2DS or 3DS that already has boot9strap/GodMode9/Luma3DS, you can put your flashcart made by (www.r4iultra.com) into ntrboot mode using the ntrboot_flasher FIRM payload. A hacked system is not restricted in converting an (ntrboot compatible) DS flashcart.

    The 4.3.0 or lower open firmware only applies to nonhacked 2DS/3DS as their DS(i) mode will prevent older DS flashcarts from launching at HOME Menu (cannot access the ds_ntrboot_flasher *.nds app).

    If your 3DS system (the working one), is not hacked and is at 11.10.0-43E firmware, you must either resort to hacking with seedminer method, get a different ntrboot flashcart (not blocked by the DS cart whitelist), or find someone else with a hacked 2DS/3DS who flash ntrboot onto your R4i Gold.

    I'll explain it to you:
    I have a cracked 3ds XL with everything you need, and the linker, so I have to put ntrboot using the 3ds XL on the linker then boot9strap on the 3ds with the black screen
    would it work?

    English lexicon clarifiication
    cracked = hacked
    linker = flashcart

    Yes, it will work. Remember, only flashcarts found in that list [see image #1 and image #2 *].

    * The diagram in Image #2 is a bit outdated as certain models made by www.r4isdhc.com were supported with ntrboot later.
