Hack 2DS/NEW 2DS: How to install B9S and 3DS CFW with R4i gold pro 2017?

As you know, the boot9strap is perfect for hacking Nintendo 3DS consoles, including the 3DS XL / New 3DS XL / 2DS / New 2DS XL. To obtain it, one usually needs the Ntrboothax exploit, which is called Magnethax as well, although there is still hardmode and dsiware to choose. You must agree that flashing NTRboot to a ds/dsi flahscart is the easiest way for now. In the past, only R4i gold 3ds, Acekard 2i, R4i b9s and some DSTT cards support the NTRboot method. However, from today, we can also use R4i gold pro, R4i dual core, R4i sdhc 3ds and other R4isdhc cards for running it. So, is an R4i gold pro 2017 a good choice for installing B9S/3DS CFW to 2DS or NEW 2DS XL console? Let’s us check here.

What’s the R4i gold pro?

R4i gold pro 2017 supports NTRboothax!

Good news to all of you ~Kitling, the developer of Ntrboot_Flasher has released its latest update: Ntrboot flasher version 0.3.1. The most important change is the support toflashcarts from and Which means that R4isdhc gold pro, R4isdhc dual core, R4isdhc rts lite, R4i sdhc 3ds rts and more cards are now supporting NTRboothax.

Even ifyouhavea old version 2015 or 2014 R4isdhc cards ar home, you can find it and use it again to install b9s on your 2DS console! However, if you have the NEW 2DS XL, only the 2017 R4ISDHC(gold pro, dual core, silver rts lite) cards will work.

How to install b9s with r4i gold pro 2017 on 2DS and NEW 2DS XL?

It should be pointed out that these NTRbootcartsworks in the same way of R4i gold 3ds rts since they are not pre-installed by Ntrboot. You must first flash the ntrboothax to the cards using different methods. And then you can start installing b9s on the  target 2DS or NEW 2DS XL. About the full tutorial, you can go to and follow their user guide. Notice that all these flashcarts may lose DS cards feature after using for NTRboot method unless you can do the final step to restore it.

So if you prefer toa easier NTRboot card for playing ds games and installing CFW,  I will recommend you the R4i-B9S which is pre-installed from Ntrboot and at the same time it reads DS roms in DS mode. And yet its price is not expensive ($19.9 at It is a flashcard that allows you to play CIA 3DS games and DS games at the same time, and comparing with r4isdhc/r4i-sdhc cards, the R4 B9S is more simple to operate.

In a word, after using R4I B9S for NTRboothax, you only need to download the B9S-Flasher V1.0 to switch this cart to the DS mode, then, you can play ALL DS Games for free.

2017 R4i gold pro or 2016/2015 R4i gold pro, which is a good choice for NTRboothax?

Of course, the latest version is the best choice, 2016 and 2015 R4i gold promaycould not work on the 2DS/NEW 2DS XL V11.6 to play ds games. Maybe they still support NTRboot flasher, but they don’t have a good compatibility to newest 2DS or 2DS XL firmware consoles.

So to be sure, it is better to choose its versions 2017, if you have already ordered a 2017 r4i gold pro to play DS games, it will be better!
