    Okay the latest release of FBI confused me soooo much. I remember the old classic gui. How can I install a .cia to NAND instead of SD on the latest version? BTW don't ask why I need to do it I know what I am doing.

    NO COFFEI!
    I believe by hitting certain buttons it changes the install mode if I am correct, probably L or R!

    Ah alright my bad. Maybe something on the main menu or pressing a certain button instead of A on the file?

    Is automatic, if the Cia you are trying to install needs to be installed on NAND, it will when you install it. There is no option for it anymore.

    What people may not know is all title id dependant. FBI installer will install based on title id. If you are installing NAND cia, it has to be one that is for NAND. Same for games or apps, updates, and DLC are installed to SD based on title id, and dsiware is same thing. :P

    If you managed to install it on NAND anyway it would be unuseable, and would appear as a black icon that is unbootable. Don't confuse sysNAND/emuNAND with NAND/SD.

    It automatically does it if the .cia requires it. Usually the name will end with, "_NAND.cia'

    I see. I thought it was the same back then where we have to specify where to install the files NAND or SD. Now, it's even easier and safer. This is good news to me.

    Yep it's all titleid based, the current version has partially broken logic for it but the next one will be fine (you can see the whole deal on https://github.com/Steveice10/FBI/issues/196)

    Note that the titleid is actually not the best way of figuring out if a title goes to NAND or SD, but it's the only way that works on all titles (the more correct way is exclusive to CXIs, while all titles -CXI, CFA, DSiWare- have a titleid), and well even te official DevMenu does it this way soooo.... :)

    Title? Or Title id?

    The title id embedded into the cia file that fbi detects determines where to install it, that is why the process is automatic. Before the 2.0 update, we had to manually instruct where to install it but is auto based on title id. All cia files that fbi deal with is all based on title id. Don't forget that.:teach:
