    i was downloading some games with freeshop as you do and i fall asleep to let the larger games download and all of that i wake up it tells me that the software crashed and i need to restart no big deal this happens from time to time it reboots but freeshop and all other downloading based homebrew is gone along with fbi and the homebrew launcher

    i inject fbi into health and safety and it lets me install everything except for fbi telling me its an outdated version so i use the title database version and it tells me its already installed

    has any one encountered this before also im on 11.2 luma if it matters

    Go to system settings > data management > 3ds and see if FBI is there. If it is, delete it and try installing the cia again.

    I've never experienced this. Sounds like you have a bunk SD.

    Where's the SD card from?
    Could be faulty, which is common. I understand what you're saying with the games but, what size is the SD also?

    I guess you could try reinstalling FBI and freeShop. Worst case scenario, CFW altogether (doubt it, but like I said, worst case scenario, plus you can't be on 11.3)
    Other than that, your SD should be perfectly fine (normally big retailers shouldn't have errors)

    Are you using files existing on your PC from your last CFW install, or are you reinstalling the files from 3ds.guide and following that way?
    Maybe the versions your trying to install are outdated. That's literally all I can think of...

    Nope. Nope. Nope. :P

    You need to reinstall them (I know, it's a pain) from 3ds.guide as the ones you're using are most likely outdated payloads ect.
    Trust me, I had this mistake and could've bricked my console if the software didn't check the payload.
    Outdated files is your issue I believe.

    CIAngel maybe? That might work. Check system settings and see if the apps are there. If they are uninstall and try finding the CIA's with CIAngel or FBI.

    ok so i found out there is a 300 icon limit on the 3ds so my conclusion to this is that when i went to download things with freeshop it ignored this limit and installed them anyways thus overwriting there icons and starting points as they were the first games and applications i installed but not removing the fact that there installed so the 3ds sees that there installed and says they can not be installed again but having no way to uninstall or start them i don't know if im correct but this is my theory

    so does anyone have any clue as to how to fix this

    yes this is the issue as i delete games that i do not care for older ones that i didn't even know left come back and it says gives its message that new software has been added even though they were never gone to begin with just hidden by the 300 icon limit also even though i surpassed the limit new tiles are still available just unused

    That's why I usually clear up any old games I finished or don't play. Also, free up more SD space.
