    I've followed Plailects guide to the T on my new3ds. Now every time I try to install CIAs I get this error. Using shameless Qr (downloading games I have physical copies of) in testing on smaller sized games I could sometimes get one to go through without error, seems that bigger files always fail though. Mainly Majoras Mask, Smash, and project X zone. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Okay, So I tried freeShop and its still failing to install right at the end. Failed to finalize content install: hex addy.

    Edit: Again this is on larger sized file games

    I know MM works in CIAngel, and probably FreeShop otherwise it would have been complained about. Do you have enough free space on your SD card?

    Is it formatted to Fat 32?
    What the class write speed of it?
    It might be a fake SD card.

    I usually have one sdcard that is 32GB And it fails to install large cia files over 512 MB, try installing smaller ones?

    How you get your cia?

    Smaller games? Yes, it installs them fine. Its a class 10, and yes. its formatted to FAT32.

    Edit: CIAs were being installed from Shameless via qr code and also tried freeshop like someone suggested.

    My guess is a fake SD card. I hope you didn't pay a lot for that.:unsure:

    Have you formatted it as fat32? If not use this : http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/guiformat.exe
    Have you initialized the databases by creating 2 files(title.db and import.db) in a dbs folder(created by yourself) located in /Nintendo 3ds/title1/title2

    Guess I'm learning my lesson in the too good to be true category.
