    Hello! I really need help as I tried to 'flash' my r4i 3ds card and now it does not even show up as a 'game' to load im not to sure what I have done as I went into this with very little research and was watching a youtube video. I believe the flash did not work and now my card is not working, anyone know what has happened or how to fix?

    if you flashed it to install ntrboot onto it, it's working as intended

    I think I was but then again im really unsure. I did a bit more reading before posting this and saw another tutorial on 3ds.hacks.guide on how to do it and im trying to do it 'again' and on the part where I try to boot SafeB9SInstaller with the magnet how ever I've been trying for maybe half an hour now and still hasn't worked
    really unsure how to get this to work, is there anyway to unflash it so it just appears as a game again?

    what happens when you use the magnet and the button combination? just saying it doesnt work wont get any help

    and you will not be able to restore the flashcard until your have hacked your 3ds

    oh dear I've gotten into a mess lmao!
    When trying to boot it with the magnet trick, either it will just turn on properly (assuming cause the magnet has moved) or it will 'turn one' but the screen will stay black if I move the magnet after a while it will just light up as if it turned on normally

    with the normal 3ds, make sure the magnet is on the B button, you may need to put the r4i card in slightly on an angle while pushing it in, push it slowly where on the left where the SD card slot is

    hold the X Start and Select, press and hold the power button for about 3 seconds then release the power while holding the rest

    it doesnt matter what firmware it's on,
    you didnt follow a youtube video did you, because the http://3ds.hacks.guide is the only one you should be following,

    yeah I did like I said I didn't do much research it told me to put a file on my sd card (for the r4i) and run it as a game
    after doing that nothing shows up

    you may need to either buy another card, use the seedminer method or have a friend or someone close to you with a ntrboot card mod your systems for you
    once one system is modded, you will be have to use the firm version of the ntrboot flasher and restore/flash it correctly
