    Hello, I'm just wondering why my cfw 3ds isn't installing the files I have in correct format. Here is the error information:

    Failed to install CIA file.
    Result code: 0xC86044D2
    Level: Status (25)
    Summary: Out of resource (3)
    Module: FS (17)
    Desc: Partition full (210)

    (I was attempting to install Farming Simulator 18)
    Any information on this would be very helpful.

    sure your sd isn't full?

    I'm not positive, but would it matter if it was literally almost full? Only because it is 4GB and most of it is filled, but I did get the file on there so installation takes more I guess.

    Do you mind checking

    You pretty much need double the space of the cia size. So if the cia is 1gb you need 2gb on the sd card. 1gb is for the cia and 1gb is for the game to install.

    Also FBI will tell you if you have enough space.select the cia and near the bottom of the screen it will say install size make a note of it then check the bottom left of the top screen it tells you what size is left on the sd card

    Also if I had to delete things I have no clue what is actually safe to delete, and part of it all is homebrew and such.

    You are out of space you need space bigger than the cia size. As I explained above also check what I edited in to my previous post.

    You can delete all cia files that you've already installed, if you haven't been doing that it should give you plenty of space.

    Alright, well I got rid of a game I really don't need along with most of its saves (kept one to restore if for whatever reason I want it again.) Also, the space cleared is a lot more than just double the file size, so I'm going to retry now.

    Yep and from then on in any time you use fbi to install a cia select the install and delete cia option.
