    hi, I bought a r4 gold pro to do the ntrboot but after putting the kernel in the micro sd and putting the ntrboot flasher and after starting the software from 3ds the screen goes out: "an error has occurred keep the power button pressed "

    sorry for my bad english.

    Are you trying to flash ntrboothax onto the R4 Gold Pro with a 3DS that does not load DS software? That will not work (ntrboot should work as soon as the flashing is done with another DS). This is why the R4i Gold 3DS Plus with the internal switch for ntrboot/normal operation would have been a better choice for you.

    However, if you find any other DS system – no matter which model as long as it loads DS games – you can flash ntrboot with that:
    From the guide, Italian version:

    Prosegui con il Flash di ntrboot (Con più 3DS)
    Prosegui con il Flash di ntrboot (NDS)
    Prosegui con il Flash di ntrboot (DSi)

    ok, I have two 3ds, one of which has the cfw and the other is the one I'm trying to do the cfw and that doesn't load the software ds, so I tried to flash the r4 with luma as it says in the guide but when I have to select the flashcart from flashcart comes out:
    -acekard 2i
    -r4isdhc family
    -r4 sdhc dual-core
    -r4i gold 3ds
    so I select my flashcart or r4 gold 3ds but it tells me that it is not compatible, then I try with r4 sdhc dual-core, since in the lower screen it tells me that it is also compatible with r4i gold but then crashes, I tried again several times,turn off and on , but it always crashes

    That is the problem with the very similar names of the many, many flashcarts using the name R4.
    R4iSDHC Gold Pro ≠ R4i Gold 3DS

    I guess your card is this one
    https://nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=490
    with r4isdhc.com printed on

    so try R4iSDHC family.
