    I have o3ds with 9.0 sysnand. Bluecardfix.cia installed. My blue card just doesn't work anymore. It was kinda hit and miss for a while but now it doesn't pop up at all. Any ideas?

    Clean the pins. They become rusty easily.

    Piece of electrical tape ontop of the mSD.
    If it was a hit and miss before, you're mSD more than likely wasn't / isn't making proper contact with the pins.

    Edit: You can also make sure that the mSD is pressed all the way down. I'd try that before the tape. :)

    Probably faulty blue cart. Mine one had gone faulty without any reason after roughly two to three uses. Give a try reinserting it couple of times with micro sd card also reinserting couple of times. Or get a cheap R4i gold DS cart.

    Good for trash.

    Sorry.

    That had to be expected with cheap r4i clones.

    I have a couple things to try. I'm gunna be pissed if I have to by a new ds flashcard. Also gw stated that the bricking issue people were experiencing was from installing the ds profile exploit with other cards. Does the flashcard need to read msd for it to actually show up in the system?

    Yes. Better format the micro SD card with FAT32 and then copy fresh files from latest GW package. Mine blue cart just died and never worked again by any means. Had only been used for mset exploit thing and been in case since then.

    Just popped up. I took the card apart and rubbed the pins on my jeans and maneuvered the msd a bit. Not sure which it was, but hopefully it lasts.

    There is no bricking code. You can
    use any DS cart as long as 3DS detects it.

    Sometimes for me it happened that while it is installing the exploit the progress bar gets stuck, quick fix for that is to press HOME key (to show suspend menu) and HOME or B key again to go back and the progress bar will continue and then will verify the exploit.

    EDIT: Looks like your problem solved while I was writing this post lol
