    Hi
    I had my 3ds hacked. I had sysnand and a9lh. I had downloaded some games from freeshop (mario, metroid, zelda...). One day, I think, recieved a message that the sdcard had been removed I all the games that I had downloaded. I also lost (the apps form main menu) FBI, Luma3ds, freeshop, etc. First I thought that the sdcard was damaged but wen I inserted on the PC I had all the files. Then I tought the problem was the sdcard reader of the 3ds but when I enter Data Management I could see all the software that I have downloaded there. All the games, fbi, homebrew launcher, free shop, etc.
    Recently I changed a9lh to b9s. Also updated luma3ds 2.0. But had no luck. Someone told me to try to reinstall FBI but when I go to homebrew launcher (following the 3ds guide of going to download play, rosalina, etc) and try to launch FBI the screen turn black. Something curious is that when I enter hombrew launcher the FBI.3dsx appear a question mark on the left side and on the right side it says unknown author. (The same goes with menuhax_manager, safehax, etc.) Meanwhile The Lumaupdater.3dsx appear fine and thats why I could do the update. It has the picture on the left side and the authors (Kunoichiz / Hamcha) on the right side.
    Additional details:
    my 3ds is SYS 11.5.0-38U
    I already tried re formatting my sd card

    Can someone help me with this?

    First off, I think you're speaking of Luma 8.0 there and not 2.0. Second your explanation is quite vague. If you can be more precise, I may be able to help.

    But have you tried using other SD Cards?

    The missing icons and app description is normal if you are missing the .smdh & .xml files.
    Question, have you ever used emunand before? If so did you unlink NAND and EmuNAND?

    Just curious as I have had a problem that sounds similar to yours.

    When booting up your 3DS, does everything still appear until you launch something? Or is it all gone from boot.

    If all your data is on the other SD and you can't access that SD in your computer as well, then you've lost all data. If you have a backup though, you can recover the data.

    But you can still put the B9S Payloads on the SD and reinstall the apps. Because B9S is installed on the NAND, no need to worry about hacking your 3DS again.

    If you haven't formatted the card yet, you might be able to recover all the data by using a tool like Recuva or GetDataBack. I recommend the latter, it works better for me, but it's paid (I'm sure you can acquire it somehow... :P)
    If you format it, then all bets are off. The more you modify on the card, the higher the chances of data being overwritten and unrecoverable. But you may still be able to recover most of your save files and such.
    It sounds like your card might have some corruption on it, did you try running chkdsk?

    Yes. It is Luma 8.0. Sorry.
    Sorry my explanation was vague. I thought I wrote a lot. I did my best. I am no expert in this topic.
    I did try other SD card and had the same problem.
    Any other suggestion? (For my explanation too). Thanks

    I think I have never use emunand. Since the first time I did the 3dsGuide I had SYS 11.x.xxxx. I think that means I have SYSnand, right?
    Any suggestion how to verify this? (the unlinking thing)

    No. When booting I only have the "default stuff". (Settings, Camera, Sound, eShop, etc.)

    Thanks to all for helping!

    No, I did not. I am going to try it later but I tried with another card. Doesn't this that is not a damaged card? (unless I am that lucky that both cards were damaged)

    I'm having a similar issue right now.

    None of my CIA titles show up on Home screen, however, my theme in use is still present.

    What I did was try to update Pokemon X the past hour when it threw an error code of "009-4079 Could not access SD Card".

    When I use FBI from H&S, I get a 0xC8894478 error trying to install other titles.

    Is there any recommendations? And yes my SD Card can read and write properly on my PC.

    Update: I fixed it. Turns out it was just corrupted data that needed to be deleted in the DLC data.

    That fix (part of) my problem!!! Thanks!!!!
    Unfortunately... The first thing I did (I didn't read carefully) was delete FBI from settings>data management>nintendo 3ds>software>FBI
    To then try to install it trough home-brew launcher but it gave me an error arm11 (pictures attached).
    So the only problem I have right now is that I still can't install FBI but my game icons appeared again. And I can play them no problem. I appreciate so much your help :D

    Try to inject FBI into Home and Safety via GodMod9 install FBI CIA and then restore Home and Safety.
    Can I ask how you launched HBL? Was it via the rosalina menu app or by some other way?

    I was following:
    https://3ds.guide/godmode9-usage.html
    and I got stuck in:
    Injecting any .CIA app into Health & Safety
    ------>Instructions
    ------------>4. I don't have "CIA image option". (I do have that option for the other CIAs)

    I can access hombrew launcher through the Icon in the 3ds main menu or through rosalina menu app. Can be both

    Update FBI.
    Apps aren't showing on the homescreen because you don't have the Tickets installed or the DBS in the Nintendo 3DS folder got corrupted.

    GodMode9 v1.2.7
    Just in case, for the other CIAs I do have "CIA image option"

    What do you mean by "Update FBI"?
    I re-downladed de .3dsx (and cia) file.
    I can't open FBI trough homebrew launcher or install it. No idea how can I update it.

    The apps appeared when I deleted the DLC content like Thegamer503 said. If I had done only that probably I would still have FBI app but unfortunately I deleted
    the software (trough data managemente/nintendo 3ds/software) thinking that probably that was corrupted and that was causing my problem but, no.
    So now I cant open or install FBI. When I try to open it, it gives me an error arm11
