    Did your 3DS installed with CFW such as Luma3DS?

    That something to be expect since without CFW, some flashcart got blocked.
    What is your current FW version (in System Setting)

    There is 4 things you need to know right now.
    1. 3DS exploit: This is a way allow to run somethings that normally can't run such as homebrew, etc. Example of 3DS exploit are menuhax, arm9loaderhax, fasthax, etc.
    2. 3DS CFW: This is what you want to allow your 3DS to add more function to FW, such as out of region cart load, pirating, ETC. This one need 3DS exploit to be able to run. Example of CFW is Luma3DS. ReiNAND, Corbenik.
    3. SysNAND: This is your System OS that run on the 3DS.
    4. EmuNAND: The clone of your SysNAND that store on SD card. This one is need to allow CFW to run without some exploit such as menuhax getting remove by Nintendo update
    The choices you have here are:
    1. Installing Arm9loaderhax (A9LH) Exploit with Luma3DS CFW. Can be done by following this guide: http://3ds.guide/ . This one is the most popular setting and mostly safe from removed by Nintendo.The problem is, this setting require user to hack into 3DS System files. But, So it has a small risk of brick. But, if you're understand and following every step of the guide I gave you correctly. Even though you bricked, it can still be fix by hardmod.
    2. Installing menuhax Exploit with Luma3DS CFW. Can be done by following this guide: How to Autoboot EmuNAND on FW 9.0.0-11.2.0 (without A9LH). This one is more safer in installing state. But, drain SD card space for cloning SysNAND into EmuNAND, and has a chance getting remove if you update to next firmware when you accindently boot to SysNAND.
    3. Buying the new flashcart or update its kernel, since somebody told me that Nintendo stop blocked new DS flashcart kernel for awhile now. This method, I can't guarantee that it will work.

    Thanks! I'll try this tomorrow afternoon, so, is this basically downgrading and installing a CFW?

    Most people won't get brick if they really understand the guide and following it without a mistake.
    I only saw 1 person brick even following the guide correctly, so the chance is below 0.01%.
    Editing System always has a chance of brick in every electronic device such as brick android phone when flashing its OS.

    And, the guide will told you to create a NAND Backup that can help you recover if you're in that 0.01%.
    So, don't worry unless you really don't want it to brick 100%.

    There are many types of r4i cards. Can you post a picture? I have an r4i gold rts and it works great. I just had to upgrade the kernel.

    That's the same one it have, even has r4ids.cn on it. Download this kernel and load that with any other ds (lite or dsi). There will be 2 .nds files. Choose the dsi file if loading from a dsi or the lite version if you have a dslite. Yes, you will need a dslite or dsi to install the new kernel to the flashcart.
