    Hi, I have a 9.2 N3DS (downgraded from 10.3), I've installed ReiNAND cfw and able to install cias on emuNAND, but whenever I try to install cias on sysNAND with FBI (from emuNAND), the installation process finish, but when I boot to sysNAND nothing has been installed.
    Actually, I didn't installed FBI into sysNAND at first, because injecting into h&S didn't work for me in sysNAND, but did in emuNAND.
    I'm suspecting something on my downgrade went wrong, any method to check it to be sure?

    Also you need to run FBI from Sysnand in Pasta Mode not Emunand

    Heres the breakdown

    FBI EMUNAND
    Install to SD (installs to SD card)
    Install to Nand (installs to the EMUNAND Partition on SD Card)

    FBI ran from SYSNAND
    Install to SD (Installs to SD card but will show up in Sysnand)
    Install to Nand (installs to the NAND Partition on the 3DS console)

    Basically you have been tring to install CIAS to your EMUNAND's partition on your SD card aka which is filling it up and unsafe + this isnt actually installing to the Sysnand

    Thanks for the clarifications. You wrote it's unsafe to do what I did, could you elaborate? Also, is there any way I can revert those installations? Maybe just format the SD and then restore the emunand backup?

    well if you backed up your Emunand before you installed them you can restore then yeah.

    Btw you can restore backup without formatting SD card you only format it when making the Emunand partition.

    And its not really safe because the Sysnand (Nand area) is also where all your 3DS system files are installed like friends list online access etc so instantly filling it cannot be safe

    Why would you want to install them on sysnand anyway? The only thing that's useful to have on sysnand is dev menu, nothing else

    GBA games need to be installed on both to work if your NANDs are unlinked. DSiWare might too, not sure.
