- I'm following this guide:
- I am using the 2017 R4i SDHC Gold Pro:
- Bought from NDS-card.com:
- I'm using a regular 3DS XL
- I successfully flashed ntrboot for cards from r4isdhc.com.
- Here is my micro SD card contents:
- My Micro SD is a 32GB Class 10 SanDisk Ultra micro SDHC.
- I formatted the Micro SD using SDFormatter v3.1 ( https://sd-formatter.informer.com/3.1/ ) per the r4isdhc.com FAQ instructions here:
- I had problems with my flashcart not being detected by my 3DS, but found out it was a connector pin problem, and sticking a piece of cardstock behind the card in the 3DS cart slot solved the problem. I'm continuing to use this method.
- I can successfully use the magnet to put the 3DS to sleep.
- It appears that I can successfully boot into the mode I need to when I press Select+Start+X+Power, but nothing happens. It just remains on a black screen. When I let go of the buttons, the 3DS just powers off.
- The 3DS is not bricked, because I can still boot into the 3DS normally. I don't know if the flashcart is bricked, though...
- I had the file contents of the R4i Gold Pro kernel and .nds game roms on the card when I flashed ntrboot. I deleted all those files after flashing.
- If it's possible to restart the process, I also have a DS Lite, so I can do the 3DS+DS method...
- Am I supposed to have the Nintendo 3DS folder on the root of my SD? Like pictured in the guide? Where does that come from?
Here is a screenshot of the SD contents from the 3DS' SD slot (Samsung Class 10 8GB), and now I'm confused:
I did not put that boot9strap folder there.................Did flashing process put the folder there? Should I boot into boot9strap with or without this 8GB system SD card in? Should I use this 8GB SD card in my flashcart instead?
