    So I installed the region free Home Menu CIA (the non-verion-spoofed one) and now I can't get rid of it.
    Every time I delete it with FBI, then try to reinstall the clean one downloaded with 3DNUS it says the software already exists. When it asks me whether I want to delete then reinstall it, FBI can't delete it, saying the title isn't present. However, I can reinstall the RF patched just fine.
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Tried using DevMenu/BigBlueMenu? I hear they're better with installing System Titles.

    Tried it. Also said it's skipping the import because "the program already exists".

    The only other thing I can think of is a system update. If it recognises the files are out of date, I think it'll let you do it from System Settings.

    Try removing it using FBI, launch DevMenu through FBI, then use DevMenu to install the home menu from 3dnus.

    If that doesn't work I have some other ideas.

    Hm, this is what I had to do, but I've only tested it on o3ds (and wouldn't recommend trying it on n3ds without a9lh):

    Delete home menu in FBI, launch DevMenu and install 8.1 Home Menu. Reboot, system update to 10.7 home menu.

    Don't worry I'm not a filthy menuhax peasant! :P
    In the meantime I simply tried to install the CIA in DevMenu without removing anything first and guess what, it installed! How can I check if it has really overwrote the patched one?

    Downgrade to a version of ARN that doesn't support region free and see if it still has region free games.
