    Hello there, I need some help with FBI. I have a friend who can't install any .cia in his 2DS with CFW, latest Luma, and FW 11.8.41U. When he tries to install something, it just shows as an archive, not as a .cia. The only options that appear are Delete, Rename, Copy and Paste. We have tried with redownloading the .cia, using the .3dsx and still nothing.

    We hope you guys can help us.

    Completely sure, is a .cia. I tried with another game and the same happens. I also tried redownloading that .cia, and yet nothing.

    I hacked the 2DS with the 3ds.guide, ntrboot, he was able to install .cia until some days ago, he installed Luigi's Mansion DM, and after that the problems begun.

    I replaced both, but now FBI.3dsx doesn't work with HBL. If I open it, I get An exception occurred Processor: ARM11 (core 1) Exception type: prefetch abort (svcBreak) and many other things.

    another question, have you tried to test the SD card to see if it's a fake or corrupted?

    Well, nothing yet. I haven't found any way to install a .cia. It just doesn't show the file as a .cia, so it can't be installed.

    No, it's FBI 1.4, because he wants to use it with SocketPunch. Either way it doesn't show any .cia game or homebrew as a .cia, it shows it as an "Archive".

    How much free space does your SD card have?
