Not only the R4I B9S from R4I-SDHC.COM, the original R4I SDHC 3DS RTS card can support NTRboot Method for installing B9S/Luma 3DS CFW from now on with the recent updated ntrboot_flasher v0.3.1 or ak2i_ntrcardhax_flasher v3.2. The 2 NTRboothax exploits are both adding compatibility for R4I SDHC 3DS RTS with Wifi mark. Means that, if you already have an R4I SDHC 3DS or plan to buy this best 3DS R4i card, you are already having the ability to play CIA 3ds games on all 3ds, 3ds xl, new 3ds xl, 2ds and new 2ds xl consoles with any firmware version!
NTRboothax updated for supporting R4I SDHC and R4ISDHC?
The ak2i_ntrcardhax_flasher v3.2 is updated for supporting R4I SDHC cards including the R4i sdhc 3ds rts, and the ntrboot_flasher v0.3.1 is upgraded for adding compatibility for both R4i sdhc and R4isdhc carts, including R4i gold pro, R4isdhc dual core and R4isdhc rts lite.

For you don’t know about the 2 NTRboot flashers, here is a good explanation from Reddit.
One (NTRBoot Flasher) is a payload for Luma on B9S. It has the highest compatibility right now, and is the original flasher IIRC. The other (AK2i NTRCardHax Flasher) is an NDS ROM that you run directly from the flashcart.
- AK2i Flasher can install NTRBoot to a cart without CFW; it’s what you use for the 3DS single-system method. It can’t make a backup of your flashcart though, so you have to keep the system you used to flash the cart on until you’re done. If you shut off that system, the cart is bricked.
- NTRBoot Flasher requires a system with CFW. However, NTRBoot Flasher can make a backup to the 3DS SD card, allowing you to be able to restore the flashcart at any time. NTRBoot can also unbrick carts, provided you obtain a backup of the firmware from someone else.
How to use R4I SDHC 3DS and NTRboothax to install B9S/Luma 3DS CFW?
The user guide is the same one if you are using an R4i gold 3ds or an Acekard 2i card for running NTRboot flashers, you can get tutorial from 3ds.guide site. Or you can use the direct link here guide for single system, guide for nds or guide for dsi.
