NTRboot Flashcards Latest FAQ
What is a flashcard?
A flashcard (also commonly known as “R4″) is a device which serves asadapter between a DS/3DS console and a MicroSD card. It can be used to play ROMs, Homebrew (games made by independend hobby developers), emulators, music, movies and much more.
What is NTRBoot?
It’s a flaw in the 3DS Bootrom that allows a user to boot froma NTR card (aka DS card) instead of the console memory (namely the NAND). You can use it for many things including to install a custom firmware (cfw) for the 3DS.
What is a kernel?
The kernel files are stored on the MicroSD card that gets plugged into the flashcard (asopposite to the firmware that is stored on the flashcard itself). They supply the menu to select games etc.
Some kernels are compatible with more than oneflashcard. Two examples are YSMenu with RetroGameFan Updates (which covers many DSTT clones) and Wood R4.
Where can I get the kernel?
You can download it from the website URL that is printed on the sticker of the flashcard in most cases.However some older websites are offline. You can look for the kernel at linfoxdomain, filetrip or you can see if your card is compatible with YSMenu. Another option is to check if archive.org has a backup of the manufacturer’s website.
What is a timebomb?
It means that the kernel refuses to boot after a specified date. You can either download a new kernel when it’savaible, use another kernel to bypass it or set the console date back to a time when the flashcard worked. Only very few flashcards actually have timebombs.
How do I use NTRboot?
It’s not possible to rewrite the content of a DS game because it’s a ROM, a “Read Only Memory”. That’s the reason why we use flashcards (with a rewriteable flash memory) as DS cards to serve the code we want to run to the 3DS console (aka the CFW installer). You can check 3ds.guide for a NTRBoot tutorial.
Why is my flashcard not compatible?
The flashcard market is very covered due toit’s nature. There are no real standards on how a flashcard has to function. So every team kinda brews it’s own beer; uses it’s own ways to write to the flash memory etc. Someone with enough knowledge has to research, document and implement all the different ways to access the memory. No one added support for your card yet. It’s practically impossible to add support for a card if the manufacturer never released an update himself. The NTRTeam is a group of people who wrote the tools and added support for almost all of the supported fashcards.
Can any NTRboot card only be used for one time on one console?
No, you can use it for unlimited times and you can use it on any compatible console.
