    First of all, I'm using a O3DS XL on A9LH 11.2.0-35E SysNAND.
    Everything works fine except for installing DQ8 (about 3GB in size).
    I tried a few different dumps, different versions of FBI (2.4.7 and 2.4.1 to be exact)
    I even tried using freeShop, but all of them give me the same results.
    Everything works fine for the first couple of MB (this varies from about 55MB to 500MB), installing with the normal 1.25MB/s but then it slows down to about 40 or 50 KB/s and stays that way.
    The weird thing is, I tested my SD-Card with H2Testw and it showed no errors at all.
    Installing another game (about 800mb in size) worked perfectly fine.
    Something else I noticed is that all the DQ8 cias have the Attributes "Hidden" or "Archive" (or both) in FBI, while the other game had "None" (Don't know if that matters at all, just something i noticed)

    check how much storage you have on your sd card left if you only have a bit higher then 3gigs you will need to free about 700megs of data before even trying

    huh that's weird it could be that the cia you got has something wrong with and if it does then it cannot be installed. its not weird for freeshop to use the same cia file that you downloaded

    Gambia, The
    Backup all data from your sd card onto your Computer, reformat the card to fat32 with 32kb clustersize and copy the data back. Installing should work now..

    If you're getting the unmodified DQ8, have you tried CIAngel as well?

    I have tried the unmodified version, not from CIAngel but from FunKeyCIA, got the same error.
    Also the DQ8.cia's show up with a negative filesize when looking at them through an FTP Application, so maybe my SD-Card is corrupted?
    Funny that H2Testw shows no errors though.

    Negative filesize? Ew, maybe you need a full format instead of a quick format. That type of stuff makes me wary.

    I think he is using the enctitlekey.db from that title key site for freeshop and ciangel also uses the same enctitlekeys.bin so if freeshop does not work it is safe to say that CIAngel wont work either

    Did that, sadly it didn't help.
    I'm going to try it with another SD-Card,
    since i remembered i have a spare 16GB MicroSD and one of those MicroSD to SD Adapters.

    If it didn't help, then you may be dealing with a card that is trying to write to bad sectors, which means it's bad/unsafe to continue using it. :(

    Hopefully, the spare card does the trick for you.

    Seems that the issue was with the old card,
    the spare one has nearly finished installing DQ8 and the speeds never dropped.

    Funny thing is H2Testw still shows "Test finished without errors" when i test the card.
    Kind of a shame, since the card was bought merely a few months ago and was an original SanDisk one off of Amazon.

    Still, I'm happy my SD-Controller inside the 3DS isn't broken, that would have been way worse.

    Thanks for the (attempted) help guys!
