    hey guys so I need some help here.

    Is there anyway to install FBI with only Homebrew ? I mostly want it so I can get NTRViewer so I can record/stream my 3DS.

    I already have Homebrew on 11.6 using FreakyHax, and was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction. Or simply telling me it’s not possible without CFW

    Not on 11.6. You'll need a compatible DS flashcart such as this one and use ntrboot: http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=575

    If you're on 11.3 or less you can use FBI from homebrew to install legit cias only (see the pinned post in the flashcarts and CFW forum to explain what a legit cia is). This won't help you use NTR though (as KunoichiZ said). And you're on 11.6 anyway so you can't access anything but userland, if you don't install CFW.

    Fbi is less like an exploit, and more like an installer that requires an exploit. You can actually run fbi through the hbl, but it will be unable to install anything without a full cfw to apply signature patches.

    I use NTRBoothax to boot to emunand from a unmodded (no b9s) console.

    its very simple, just skip the b9s installation and boot straight to luma.
    sometimes I use this to install legit tickets and cias on a unmodded console.

    this ntrboothax is heaven sent.

    why not install cfw if you have an NTRBOOT flashcard?

    most of the time I dont really need the functionality of a b9s exploited console. I just wanna run freeshop on it to install games, once done remove the ntrboot flashcart and power cycle the 3ds, and whoala installed games on a unmodded console.

    the only thing helpful to me with cfw is able to install my own purchased tickets, with this, I can either just copy the game files on my computer to a 3ds sd card or just download them straight on freeshop.

    The games are unsigned that you get from freeshop. Same as any other non legit cia you can get from anywhere. You will never be able to install them, remove b9s and hope to play the games on a unmodded console.
    Also, power cycling, or formatting system memory never removes b9s from the system.

    What a super bizarre setup, I'm actually at a loss for words. You're making more work for yourself unnecessarily, by choice.

    You've got nothing to lose, and everything to gain by installing b9s. Your reasoning is literally beyond my comprehension.

    But whatever, in the end it's your choice.

    Removing the flashcart doesn't just uninstall cfw. Also, i suggest reading this post i've made earlier to clarify what a cfw is and how useful it could be. It's extremely useful and provides input about the pros and cons of cfw:
    It may or may not be useful.

    dont u need CFW for Freeshop in first place?

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    i dont mean it bad but.....i dont believe this...for freeshop you need CFW (correct me if i am wrong)....you cant uninstall B9S via powercycle....and if you install the tickets via FBI (which works only with CFW....correct me if i am wrong).....you still cant use freeshop..

    yes . . . his definition of cfw is off he seems to think that because it is not persistent its not cfw

    Cfw is installed via an installer you run from the flashcart. You can't uninstall cfw without going through a hassle. You still have cfw. Hold down select before you press the power button. Regardless if the flashcart is inserted or not, you will boot into the luma config, proving cfw is installed.
