    So just last night, I was messing around with installing ntrboot and doing some single New3DS hacking when I hit a brick wall - after I flashed my card, I managed to delete everything on my flashcart. I tried looking everywhere for a solution on how to fix it (my card is a Spongebob ACE3DS Plus, and I'm using a Sandisk 64GB SDXC). Eventually, I came to the conclusion that if I can't rip ntrboot from my flashcart, I'll just install it properly and THEN remove it (so I can play my NDS ROMs) - so today I went through the process of download Luma, Boot9strap and everything else until I have hit yet another brick wall. After putting the SafeB9SInstaller.firm and changing the name on my New3DS's internal card (non-removable!), I booted into SafeB9SInstaller. I installed the FIRM, and everything looked good. It was at this point I realised that I would now be unable to boot my 3DS as I now can't go into system settings and connect to my Wifi to access my internal SD card. I looking for a solution so I can start my New3DSXL again, along with possibly unbricking my flashed card. Thanks.

    TL;DR - I bricked my ACE3DS Plus with ntrboot and my New3DSXL is stuck booting SafeB9SInstaller and I would like help please!

    Also the reason you're stuck booting into B9SInstaller is because you haven't replaced the boot.firm with Luma after hacking. Also your ACE3DS will not function as a normal flashcart again until you flash the old firmware back onto it. A list of these firmwares for each card is downloadable in the guide and a bootable firm that flashes it back using the 3DS is also there. The reason all of this is happening is because, instead of continuing with the guide to then put the files needed for booting Luma, restoring your flashcart, and - if you want - make the console bootable without SD, you instead panicked and started taking the console and card's current state for granted.

    Oh wow, I never new that! I always saw stuff on in being stuck in the thing. Thanks man, you helped me a lot. Will post an update if any progress is done on my flashcart.

    I will admit, I did panic a bit afterwards, but I've heard enough stories about bringing cards back from the dead to lift me. Thanks for the info dude. Though in the guide I didn't find a flashrom backup of ACE3DS Plus, but I'm also a bit unaware of what family it lies in - in would the R4i-SDHC B9S work?

    I only just looked at the guide to notice it isn't listed under the downloads. I was unsuccessful with a quick search. The only one place I found mention said to choose to make a backup before flashing ntrboothax onto it. If you have that, it should be restorable.

    Does that mean it's not the card itself that's flashed? Because I tried with another ACE3DS Plus SD card I have and I got the same results - unreadable on 3DS (cause of ntrboot) and on DS Lite it fails on bootup, only showing NIN before it crashes. Also wiped my main card and did a quick format but those didn't work either, and I got a fresh version of AOS v2.13 on the card after I wiped it.
