    I have this flashcart, R4iTT (the one with the new sticker) (since this is the only one available in my area without actually shipping) and it has been working great but yesterday it has crashed (hang at loading a game) and then when I restarted my 3ds, it shows "An error found, power off etc.". I tried the flashcart on my DSLite and it only shows a white screen.

    I really need your help guys! Is there some way to recover or reflash my flashcart so that it would work again? I tried the one with DSTT but it says invalid card.

    Thanks in advance!

    format the SD card and reinstall the system files(the kernel)

    note:
    what Fw is on the 3ds
    the card might NOT work on the 3ds if the 3ds has been update to the latest FW

    thanks. I'll try that. The card has used to work on v4.5 on my 3ds. It has not been updated whatsoever since then.

    update: just tried it, still no luck...the same error message still shows :(

    Your cart's firmware bricked. You will need another flash cart and an original DS or DS Lite in order to unbrick it. The unbrick procedure will not work on a DSi, DSi XL, 3DS, or 3DS XL.

    Put the firmware update file for the broken cart onto the R4, and start the program up. When it brings up the "press A to update" or whatever message, take the R4 out and but the broken cart in, then tell it to do the update (so it applies a fixed update to the broken cart).

    just tried what you suggested but when it updates it hangs on "erasing device", so I restarted it and now my R4iTT cannot even be detected my DSLite alone...any more suggestions please?

    Sure it's the right update for the bricked cart? Some sites deal with multiple carts and have separate downloads for them.

    Yes, i think it's the same firmware because it's the same one I used in order for my r4itt to work for 3ds v4.5 and I downloaded from the manufacturers' site

    Maybe because it cannot be detected that's why it cannot be flashed? (I hope not)

    Does it help if I say that the update program is an R4i Flasher which is almost 2.7mb
