Long story short, I have cfw and when I opened my 3ds yesterday all my cfw related icons, including Homebrew, FBI, Luma, and all the games barring 4 swords anniversary edition were gone. Even games I had got legitimately had dissapeared. The 3ds was in sleep mode when this happened. My custom themes still work normally though, all the files are still there, and when I check the system settings data management, its all still there. Since fbi is gone I cant just run things manually either. I know I could always just format the sd and reinstall, but I have a ton of save data id prefer not to lose; so any help would be much appreciated. my 3ds is a New 3ds XL in case that helps

Edit: When I launch eshop it simply states an error has occurred, and when I open the theme shop and go into theme collection to re download my purchased themes it says "could not access sd card", even though its clearly being read

It sounds like your CFW is no longer running. Which CFW did you have? What entrypoint were you using? (Menuhax, A9LH, B9S, ?)

If you were using Luma, try holding the SELECT button while turning on your 3DS. Do you reach the config menu?

When I press select and it brings me to the menu, at the top of the list it says 'autoboot sysnand', and an x is besise it. Does the x mean its selected or not? I have b9s btw

its selected

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

get fbi (.3dsx) and copy it to the folder with your homebrews (3ds folder on sd)

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

download the tikdevil cia and install it with fbi. with that you can restore your tickets. (homebrew have to be installed again)

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

you can acces hbl with luma rosalina menu (in rosalina menu go to Miscellaneous options - Switch the hb. title to current app.) you should start DS Download Play and than the Luma Rosalina Menu

Update.
I just tried to update a physical copy game, and when it tried it gave me a message saying "could not access sd card"
I dont understand since it clearly still recognizes it, Im still able tp play monster hunter even though save files are on sd, and as I mentioned before my themes still work

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

Im thinking I should just copy my data to my pc, format and then copy it back onto sd, any other suggestions?

ok then...wipe everything if you cant do anything. (backup your 3ds folder....[not Nintendo 3DS] to save your homebrew) and get latest luma. install luma on formatted sd and put your 3ds folder (where homebrew is)back. get FBI (both .3dsx and cia) put your .3dsx in 3ds folder. power on your 3ds. start download play open rosalina menu... Micellaneous options - Switch hb. title to current app ...quit rosalina menu exit dload play. start dload play again. you are on HB loader... install the fbi cia
