    Oh...well you could use its QR downloader if you have an QR code or just its downloader. You would have to manually input the link though.

    If you meant getting a nice app list like with TitleDB then @TheTechWiz25 is right - there simply isn't one anymore.

    On the other hand, if you wanted a way to install homebrew directly from your 3DS there are always the other remote install features (in fact, the entire point of adding TLS v1.2 support is pretty much meant to make those work everywhere)
    There are a few different options:
    1. You can scan a QR code containing a URL pointing to a CIA file which will get automatically downloaded and installed
    2. You can use Boop/ServeFiles.py/standard URLs to send CIAs to FBI over the network
    3. You can manually input a URL
    ...And of course you can always copy over CIAs via FTP/SMB/etc. and install them manually.

    I hope that more QR codes get released for FBI because navigating threw virus infested sites is such a pain

    If you have a direct link to the CIA file (for example on the GitHub releases page) then you can generate your own. The only thing to keep in mind is that the CIA must not be compressed, so no ZIP/RAR/7Z/etc.

    That aside, FBI uses standard QR codes so you can use whatever generator you want.

    Thank God, few days ago I was wondering what happened to downloading apps inside FBI and updating function... Then remembered all the stuff that happened with Nintendo answering. Didn't use my 3DS since then. I miss Freeshop, but at least I can download homebrew again. :grog:

    I liked it too - it was convenient.
    But it had a *lot* of crap, badly formatted entries and duplicates.

    Sorry for not replying, I didn't get the notification because you didn't @ me.

    QR codes work for me, I tried it both back when this update was brand new and now with a few links and everyting goes smoothly. Double check that you have a direct link to the file, otherwise it will not work.
    For Boop/Servefiles a lot of time passed since I last used either so I wouldn't know exactly what to tell you but in case you want to try something else, this GUI for Servefiles was released yesterday.

    Sadly not. It's been already said that TitleDB itself won't come back and there doesn't seem to be any properly maintained alternatives yet. If there will ever be it'll be almost certain it won't have the same integration as the original, possibly relying on QR codes for installation.

    Most apps started adding support for TLS 1.2 ages ago, but not FBI.
    One of the reasons was reportedly the slow download speed but it looks like Stevice10 decided that's not the case anymore (maybe due to TitleDB being shut down so users would still have a way to install homebrew directly from the app?)
