    Using gateway? Gateway team can repare your 3DS if the brick was caused by the card.

    Have a nand backup? You can sold it and restore it.

    Nothing... Nintendo support...

    Using R4... If you can't restore your nand using a backup, send it to Nintendo. You can't do nothing.

    First, you must have made a backup from your NAND back before when it was still not bricked, then you can restore it with the typical 3DS Nand chip to SD reader wiring mod.

    It's your unique solution.

    If you still wanting to load backups, send it now, because Gateway team have version 9.2 running exploit and nintendo is going to update your 3DS to V9.2
    P.D.
    NEVER use clons, use GATEWAY.

    Well one issue probably is also R4 became a relatively generic term for carts back in the day of NDS hacking and some people probably assumed the 3ds ones were made by the same people...

    You wanted to see where I live? You stalker...
    If you don't have a NAND backup, your only option right now is to send it to Nintendo and get it fixed. It will most likely be updated to the latest firmware so you should start saving money and start buying games and support the companies that make the games. If you don't want to buy the games, the only thing left is to get Gateway since they have already announced that they have their flashcart working on the latest firmware, 9.2.0-20. Not to mention the R4i Gold 3DS Deluxe is a clone of Gateway so you're better off getting a Gateway even if it's a little bit more expensive.

    At the end of the day, your R4i Gold 3DS Deluxe is practically useless now.

    You could sell it online and try to recoup some of the money.

    True, but there's a chance of not getting much out of it. Not to mention there aren't a lot of people using a v4.X 3DS and want to use a R4i 3DS Gold Deluxe instead of a Gateway. XP
