    It's broken. You can fix it, but you will need another flash cart (or ARDSi), and you will also need an original DS or a DS Lite.

    If you don't have these things, you can't fix it. The cart swap method to fix broken flash carts does not work on the DSi, DSi XL, 3DS, or 3DS XL.

    1 - Download the R4i Gold firmware update file and put it on the Acekard.
    2 - Put the Acekard into the original DS and start up the DSL version of the update file.
    3 - Take the Acekard out, put the bricked R4i Gold in.
    4 - Tell the program to apply the update and it should overwrite the broken firmware of the R4i Gold with a fixed copy.
