    I do get that, and I'm really excited about that, it's just that right now nobody will be using it to get into 3DS Homebrew. I'm hyped for the unbricks and unpatchable nature of this exploit though.

    You do realise there are already several large threads of people doing just that? I'm not sure why you think that just because it's not useful to you personally that it's somehow redundant for everyone. People have recovered from bricks after months of waiting, this is a huge development in the scene.

    Yes, but what about the people who want to start Homebrew and have waited months for this?

    Worked great!!!! I prefer the ntrboot.firm being the boot file for the cart, makes more sense.

    normal b9s = boot.firm
    ntrboot = ntrboot.firm

    guess ill keep my ak2i in my 3ds from now on and get a good magnet for my keychain :)

    Then they now have an update and can wait a little longer.

    No doubt pre-flashed cards will go on sale within a day or two.

    People who say ntrboot is really no better than dsiware transfer "because 2nd 3ds" should read this post.

    Why yes, they should definitely have tried harder to provide for you a free service that suits your needs.

    It's better than DSiWarehax because, besides the initial flashing (which should be possible without a 3DS, probably), the carts are re-usable and can be chucked into an envelope. I would be shocked if there weren't people selling carts with it pre-installed at some point soon. And, if you make contact with other humans in the real world, some of them may have a 3DS that you could borrow for 10 minutes, which is a much easier sell than trying to do some system transfer bullshit.

    Yes, that works fine. When ntrboot_flasher was broken for AK2i cards, I used that method successfully. You need his fork of Decrypt9 though since the current "official" D9 isn't updated for it.

    The AK2i will still work as a flashcart on a CFW 3DS, even when setup as an ntrboot cart. It won't work on a DSi/OFW 3DS, though.

    The R4i Gold is one or the other, though, from what I've heard.

    I meant that they should've worked more on the powersaves or a version of this that only requires a flash cart. I understand they do this for us for free, and I'm sure as hell not the one who get's to decide, but I just don't like where this has started off.
    I know it'll go really far, and I think your post has made me think about it a bit more than the others. Thanks.

    Yeah, I can get how it'd be frustrating right now for someone with one console on 11.4+. Also it's worth keeping in mind that an ntrboot cart also serves essentially as a hardmod replacement, fixing any software bricks you might happen to have. It sounds like a lot of people are already using it to rescue paperweights that they tossed in a drawer years ago.

    Hmm, I have an off-brand R4i, but it does have RTS. Here's a photo.

    Would it be usable? From what I've read, the site it came from is reputable enough, and there's no time bomb. Sure, I said I was leaving the 3DS scene, but I really miss PKHex.........

    I think the website needs to be r4ids.cn

    Nope. It might look similar, but r4i-sdhc.com carts are not currently compatible.

    my flashcard "R4i Gold 3DS (r4igold.cc)" can be flashed with a .nds file in the official page, but obviously NTRBoot Flasher gives an error when dumping the flash.. is there a possibility to make it compatible in NTRBoot Flasher in some future?

    Maybe. There's info on it in Readme.

    If you go to https://github.com/kitling/ntrboot_flasher/issues/3#issuecomment-322000616 they mention you can help by opening an issue on flashcart_core with the .nds attached.
