    Hi there,
    I've got a o3DS (9.2 SysNAND, 10.3 rxTools EmuNAND) and I wanted to reuse my old R4i-SDHC 4.5.
    So I installed Gateways Bluecardfix.cia into SysNAND(FBI, Destination:NAND). After that, DS Support stopped working. Even Retail games(Tested Naruto: Ninja Council 2 and Zelda: Spirit Tracks) aren't starting.
    How can I make this undone? Is there any way to remove the fix, without the risk of bricking my 3DS?
    Greets and thanks in advance,
    Sumsquat

    I really don't understand why everybody insists on installing GW's Bluecardfix.cia. Flashcarts work perfectly fine without them as long it's been updated...and even if it hasn't been, you can update them as long as you have a way to launch them (which just happens to be one thing rxTools is great at, as well as original DS systems).

    Either way, if you still have the cia lying around, go ahead and take it into FBI/Title Manager/What have you and, without installing, check what the cia id is. Then remove the cia with that EXACT same ID from your sysNAND. Make sure it's EXACTLY the same; if you delete anything else from your sysNAND then you will very likely brick yourself.
    I know it sounds scary, but you really have no other choice.

    Only R4i-SDHC Carts which are updated are R4i-SDHC RTS, 4.5 won't install the newest kernel, unfortunately.

    Thanks, I will try that!

    Well, you can't update a card that was blocked back in 4.X, such as the AceKard 2i. This allows you to use it again.

    May you link it, please?

    @The9thBit Thank you very much, got my NDS Compatibility back!

    Now, is there a way to get my flashcart running? Maybe downgrade TWL_FIRM or use anything else?

    Go to the well known ios site and search for Proper Old DS Cart Enable (RF) (more complete than Flash Card Time Warp) follow the steps and it will work. Got my old r4 card working again doing this

    They blocked nds flash cards that can write data or something at 4.4 so a
    downgraded version of twl_frm on n3ds doesn't exist :(

    I don't think it's unsafe (it'll just black screen whenever you run a DSi game) but rather think the N3DS just has its own version of TWL_FIRM.

    I tried this... because I was in the same situation where I lost my DS compatibility, I did this just as you. And I still don´t have DS compatibility back :S Can anyone help?
