    Just to confirm, I successfully installed B9S on an official 11.5 O3DS using a Ack2i HW 81 card that I bought from NDS card (sponsor site). Installation of Ntrboot_flasher went smoothly both backing up the flash and installing the hax to the card. I then used a 99p fridge magnet:P to do the sleep mode trick (was a bit fiddly to get the right position a few times) but it worked eventually.

    Thanks to the devs involved with this release. I may get a N2DS next week now:)

    Oh cool. I already tested it the hard way though by uninstalling B9S and reverting to a "virgin" 9.2 O3DS. Worked first time with my R4 and a fridge magnet, although I had to contort my fingers into a ridiculous position.

    Is there a way to tell what revision my acekard is?

    Edit: ntr boot tells you before you start, mine is HW-81

    With my install, I restored an original 9.2 Nand backup that I had (system was still on 11.1 A9LH from last year) and updated to official 11.5, as I wanted to test the Ack2i card out first before buying a new console.

    Check with Decrypt9 or Ntrboot_flasher

    I wasn't confident enough to update to 11.5 OFW so I did a CTRTransfer to 9.2 just incase my R4 didn't work. While I'm here I might mess about with menuhax for a bit of nostalgia before going back to B9S/11.5. Maybe even install rxTools! LOL

    I like risks sometimes, yet it's not my main unit, so it's was all fun. Do you know if anyone has unbricked a "bootrom" (blue screen) brick yet with this?

    I haven't seen anyone try yet. What's the easiest way to force a bluescreen brick? I might try it lol.

    Use Gateway's beta launcher.dat:P or just delete NAND files or something in Godmode9. That would brick it blue screen or not.

    The R4 doesn't, only the Acekard.

    Google much? just about every open-sourced project on the 3ds can be found by searching "github <name of project>"
    "github firmtool"
    https://github.com/TuxSH/firmtool

    was that hard?

    @pandavova I think my R4 bricked and the restore isn't working. Could you PM me your backup of R4 firmware? Mine has the same Chip ID and Hw Rev. Thanks.

    Yes, with ntrboothax you can run software even with a completely blank (or disconnected!) nand

    Of course it's not an excuse to skip on backups, in fact it increases the usability of backups
