First and foremost, you must delete any Fates DLC you have installed, you can do this via System Settings in the Home Menu. Second, using a cia installer of your choice (I recommend using BigBlueMenu, that's the one I used and it had no problems), to install the DLC, after it's done installing we will now access the game. After having deleted your old DLC, and installing the custom dlc CIA with BigBlueMenu, after accessing the Dragon's Gate, you should see this; Access the "Awakening Character Assets" DLC first, IF YOU TRY TO RECRUIT ANY OF THE 3 UNITS WITHOUT ACCESSING THE ASSETS FIRST YOUR GAME WILL CRASH. Once you have chosen the Assets, the game will enter a loading screen, this loading screen can take up to 5 minutes, so be patient, as the game is copying all of the character Assets from the DLC into your extdata, this means that once you have the characters recruited, you can delete the DLC and keep the characters as long as you don't delete your extdata. Once the loading screen is finished, you will be greeted by this message; In this screen, it is suggested you simply reset your game without saving, do note, that since the assets are now in extdata, you will experience slightly longer loading times when the game starts and reads the data from your extdata. With this process done, the character assets are now safely inside extdata, now, in every file you wish to recruit the units, just hit the bottom 3 DLCs, "Playable Chrom/Lissa/Frederick" Accessing the DLCs will greet you with these screens; Once you have recruited all of the units on all of the saves you wish to use them, you are safe to delete the DLC and redownload any old DLC you had prior to this, do note that in some 3DS the DLC will show up as "?" that takes up 0 Blocks, just delete it like normal. And assortment of screenshots for this DLC can be found here.
