    So I followed the guide on 3ds.guide and even a youtube video.
    I flashed my Flash R4i Gold 3d RTS with NTR and I installed the software for to install Boot9strap and I cant boot into
    boot9strap to install it. I am using the magnet but the screen will go black and ill take the magnet away and I'm booted into the normal 3ds screen.
    What am I doing wrong exactly?

    The console is supposed to be off, not on. The magnet is there so that it boots into sleep mode, not to put it into sleep mode while it's on. You only do that to find the spot.

    Be patient and try it for several times.
    Firstly, be sure you have flashed it with NTR boot loader.
    Do not move away the magnet and just power off the console.
    Power it on with the flashcard inserted into the console.

    With the console off, magnet in place and the cart inserted, hold Start, Select, and X. Press power briefly and keep holding for about three seconds. Then let go.

    From your symptoms it's either just a matter of holding the buttons right, or the cart isn't flashed (probably the former). It is not wrong files (or the console would turn off after finishing holding the buttons) and not wrong magnet placement (or the console would just turn on normally and not go into sleep mode right away). Have a go and report back your results.

    Just copy the whole IMGUR url.

    also, How long are you holding the buttons for when turning on the 3ds?

    you'll need to hold them all at the same time for a few seconds.

    hold power, start, select, and x at the same time w flashacard and magnet on the right spot, should boot into safeb9installer, unless the executable is not placed on the sdcard, then no0thing is going to happen, same if the wrong buttons are being held

    what you need to do with the magnet is have the console on then find where the magnet triggers the sleep mode after that turn off the console then place the magnet back then hold power start select and x for a few seconds then let go

    What do you mean? I would have thought either it wouldn't work at all (not be flashed) or be flashed correctly
