    I got a new 2ds xl today and am looking to get cfw on it. I am wondering if my r4 sdhc rts lite is compatible with ntrboot.

    yes, follow the guide: 3dsguide.com

    According to the guide @ https://3ds.guide/ it's compatible. Just follow the instructions on the guide. I would check on the r4i-sdhc site to ensure you have an authentic r4 card.

    Or try 4.0 ds_ntrboot_flasher.nds on ndslite.

    I confirm that r4 sdhc rts lite year 2014 is ntrboot compatible, though it will no longer be able to become back to ordinary flashcart.

    I did as you said on the ds lite. Now when I insert the cart in the ds lite it freezes, and it doesn't show up on the 3ds

    then test it with a magnet on an unhacked or a9 console containing the necessary safeb9 installer files, as in the 3ds guide:

    I had to push realllllll hard. then it stayed.
    Followed the Tutorial and it works :)
    Made a couple of backups.. so I am save there I hope.

    Don't think I need that R4 card in there anymore now correct?
    Also, if there is a Nintendo FW update.. will it wipe everything I did?

    Going to try converting 3DS to CIA with GM9 see how that goes.
    Notice that the GM9 screen is really dark.. is there a way to make it brighter? if it boots in the normal screen, everything is bright.

    Hell
    After you install b9s you don't need the flashcart anymore, unless you want to use it for its original purpose. Future updates will be safe with cfw.

    While you're in GM9, move the volumne slider up and down to control screen brightness.

    Nds-card were good (yes im aware theyre a site sponsor), payment methods may make them seem dodgy but they delivered.

    Heres a list from the guide:
