    Guys Is there a chance to brick my R4i Gold RTS trying to Flash it for NTRBootHax?

    Or only the fake cards have the chance to be bricked?

    Quoted from the guide

    "Note that in some rare circumstances, it may be possible for the flashing process to brick a counterfeit flashcart and render it permanently unusable. This is unlikely, but nevertheless only original listed flashcarts are supported. To reduce the chance of receiving a counterfeit card, it is recommended that you use a reputable site to buy your flashcart (such as NDS Card)"

    So that Means 0% Chance on a Original Flashcard.

    The small chance is for counterfeit Flashcards sold probably on other sites.

    There's no such thing as 0% chance. You have to take responsibility for it if you decide to flash.

    Having said that, I haven't heard of any bricks so far.
