    I'm not sure if that's expected, but the GUI version doesn't show the percentage progress correctly, it prints the percentage all separated in lines AFTER the cia finishes the installation process.

    1. Dump boot9.bin and movable.sed from a 3DS system.
    2. Install the packages:
    • Windows: py -3 -m pip install --user -r requirements.txt
    • macOS/Linux: python3 -m pip install --user -r requirements.txt

    This is so incredibly useful!

    However, I'm having an issue with installing a folder of games. Adding games individually works, but whenever I try to use the "add folder" feature in the gui, it stops on the first game with this error.
    Code:
    Starting...
    Finding path to install to...
    
    Reading Mario Sports Superstars .cia
    
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    
      File "C:\Users\***\Desktop\3DS Custom Install\custom-install-module-new-gui\custominstall.py", line 470, in <module>
    
        installer.start()
    
      File "C:\Users\***\Desktop\3DS Custom Install\custom-install-module-new-gui\custominstall.py", line 184, in start
    
        cia = CIAReader(c, seeddb=self.seeddb)
    
      File "C:\Users\***\AppData\Roaming\Python\Python38\site-packages\pyctr\type\cia.py", line 60, in __init__
    
        fp = open(fp, 'rb')
    
    FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'Mario Sports Superstars .cia'
    

    edit: Looks like if I put the cia files into the custom install directory, it works perfectly. I guess there is an issue with the "add folder" button not specifying the location of the folder. Or I screwed something up which is probably more likely now that I think about it.

    Why is this thread not stickied?:bow:

    Amazing tool! I'm new to the 3DS scene so I haven't been installing CIAs slowly for too long but I just installed 61 CIAS / 55GB in exactly 30 minutes and my mind is blown.

    Thank you so much

    There are some people who don't like having Python installed on their computer just to run this Script, could you do an implementation in a compiled language?

    I think the most convenient for this case is Rust or C#, the problem with C# is that it needs .NET Core for Linux, instead Rust compiles directly to machine code. It could also be done in C or C++, but the truth is the code is very cumbersome and I don't think people want to maintain that code.

    What do you say? Can it be done?

    I have no interest in rewriting this for another language.

    To add on to this, Python things can be packaged into standalone executables, I did this with ninfs for Windows and macOS. But that's something I would get around to when I felt like it was complete enough. In terms of rewriting, Python is the language I know best, and I would have to learn Rust or C# or anything else and do a lot of rewriting for relatively little benefits.

    Sooo I got a problem - I've tried to install few games simultaneously, but i messed out the spelling in the last file, so when installer tried to find that file (which it couldn't find of course) i've got an error. And my problem is, the games even after finalising installation never appeared as installed in 3ds, but they took its space on my memory card and, because for my console they aren't installed, i cannot uninstall them and free up space on my memory. What can I do?

    You need to run the finalizing step which is a app found on the previous page from ihaveamac to get the games showing on the 3ds.

    I just pushed an entirely new gui for custom-install to a new module-newer-gui branch. Try it out and tell me if there's any issues or improvements that could be made.

    The main new features are:
    • New layout that should make it easier to understand what's going on
    • Console is moved to a second window which is automatically shown on errors
    • Progress is shown in the Windows taskbar
    • Automatically finds and select boot9.bin and seeddb.bin in the current directory (also does this if it's in any supported path)
    • When SD root is selected, it attempts to find movable.sed at the root or in gm9/out, and select it

    This is awesome. Great job. Does this one include the custom install final steps aswell? or does that still need to be ran on the 3ds after this?

    It still requires using custom-install-finalize, getting around this is impossible since installing a ticket and seed have to happen on the console.
