    Hello! I recently tried to flash a R4i 3DS cart not realising that it isn't supported some how ended up recking my card as it won't show up as a 'game' when inserted I was wondering if anyone has a backup of it so I can fix it?

    A little more detail would be nice here. What were you doing? What is the URL on the cart? Did you make a backup beforehand?

    I was trying to flash my card and seems that it worked lol (wasn't really sure what I was doing as I followed. youtube video)
    Not sure what UPC is but on the gold bottom part there is a number 3 on it
    sadly no I had no idea I needed to make a backup + im stupid

    I meant URL, but my phone auto-corrected it to UPC and I didn't even notice it until now.
    So please don't follow youtube guides, especially if you are trying to hack your 3DS. You should always use The Guide, chances are that your backup is actually in the Guide

    I should really pay more attention to my posts, sorry about that. Also you aren't being rude, I was the one who completely forgot to check my post before making it.
    https://3ds.hacks.guide/installing-boot9strap-(ntrboot)
    It will be Section V - Removing ntrboot
    This should be a direct link to the torrent: Here

    What video were you watching? I need as many details as possible figure out just what went wrong. Like did you already flash NTRBoot to your cart? Where you using ntrboot flasher? Are you using the latest version of the flasher? Did you make sure everything is named properly?

    I don't think so, I think it failed but then again nothing really came up

    I managed to 'dump flash' on the card and now when I open the 'game' it loads a white screen and stops on that

    Check the microSD card from the flashcart itself, it should have the original flash in there. From there replace the flash that you downloaded with that one and retry flashing it.
