    Hello, I'm new to this forum and I was wondering if anyone can help me out. To sum things up, I used my Ace3ds plus card to install cfw on my friend's N3ds and while loading ntrboot, I forgot to backup my Ace3ds plus. I spent hours looking for a backup only to found this site with some backups: h ttps://goo.gl/mhix6L. I installed one of the 3 given backups for the Ace3ds plus card (the second one thats not credited) successfully and rebooted. My N3ds can now read the card but when I launch it, it doesn't load. It stays stuck on a white screen. When I try to load another backup.bin from the ntrboot flasher by selecting Ace3ds+ (or any other card option) it says that my flashcart is no supported despite working the first time. Also, the card used to show up as a Spongebob game but now it shows as Deep labyrinth. Can anyone help me fix this? I know it was stupid to load a random file on my cart but I was tired and stressed out after searching how to fix this literally all day. Is my card bricked/unfixable? Or is there anyway I can undo this mess? Thank you!

    Yes, I have read through this, this is to troubleshoot the 3ds, not a flashcart. My N3ds works just fine and is already hacked. It's my flashcart I'm having problems with. Thank you though!

    I gues on earth.
    So, to sum it up, you flashed wrong backup to your flashcard. I can only suggest trying kernels for different plus models (if there are any). Or at least YSmenu.

    wait a min. ace3ds plus IS flashable now?

    I thought it wasn't, and that you needed ace3ds-x

    i also thought that r4isdhc.com.cn carts were also non flashable.

    regardless i believe there's a special flasher that can force a flash floating around somewhere that was used to try and unbrick r4i-bs9 carts. tat one might be able to save you.

    did you find your original backup?

    i suspect someone needs to build a new one that supports ace3ds+ that is willing to force restore.

    either that or maybe ace3ds team will help.

    Hi there!
    I kinda have a similar problem with my Ace3dsPlus card...
    It doesn't even get recognized anymore.
    Is there even a possibility to revive it?

    Also: KuroGentei. I tried downloading your experimental flasher but I couldn't open the archive.
    I'd be glad if you could re-upload it. (Even though I really don't know if it could fix it. But "special flasher that can force restore a backup" sounds like it could.

    The flasher will probably not work because your flashcard is not recognized. It may sound more like a contact problem.
