Hi! After turning on my 2ds, all apps that were on the SD Card dissapeared from the home menu. When I launch Homebrew Launcher (through Rosalina Menu's miscellaneous options) and start FBI and go to titles, they are all there. Does anyone know what happened and knows how to fix this? I can also launch every title through fbi. It just bothers me that they aren't available on the home menu.
Update: I finally fixed it! My solution was following: Systemsettings - Data Management - 3ds Software. I noticed a title containing 0 Blocks of data. It had no name and a question mark symbol as the icon. I'm assuming it's the corrupted title i tried to install. I just deleted it and my titles popped right back up in the home menu!

Did you install anything or edit your sd card in any way recently? and are these legit apps or FBI installed apps?


be nice, now.
The last Thing i did before everything disappeared was deleting a cia file (i don't remember what cia, it was a cia of a homebrew application though) because it had an error while installing with FBI. Both Legit and Fbi-installed apps are missing.

To start a game or an app, you should have icons for every game/app on your home menu. Yeah and those icons went away after deleting a cia file from the SD Card after re-booting.

Cuz normaly apps should not disappear from the home menu when you install them (They only can disappear if you go in system settings and delete them)

Maybe you did delete the games instead of the cias??? Cuz it is also possible in FBI to delete apps just like the system settings, But cuz FBI can be a mess sometimes..... That can happen

could be ticket related. see if the games show up as red in fbi. I think fbi can download the tickets if they're missing. I'm assuming it may have corrupted part of the title database in the ctrnand. there are 6 database files in a folder named dbs iirc, which is in the ctrnand. I think they determine what appears on the screen.

Thats is also possible the ticket can interfer yes indeed (I had this one time with Sudoku, I Bought that game But CIAngel had installed all tickets thats why i when i got to the eshop i already had it, i used TIKSWEEP To delete all ticket and then the problem was solved (Maybe you can try TikSweep @Nakiy)

They are green in fbi. Eshop also tells me that they are installed.

In FBI the only option with tickets is "delete Title and Ticket", which i don't want to do because i dont want fo delete the titles.

If it's a missing ticket issue you can use this homebrew app to fix them. Also you can try and install some new Cia file and see if does appear on the home screen or not.
