    I basically need pointers into the files I need to setup a redNAND. I already compiled dimok's fw.img, but I need help setting up HBL, etc. The SD card is currently completely blank.

    Okay so i set everything up, have redNAND, installed Sysconfigtool. However I have no idea what it even does. Also, deleting a title makes it still playable on sysnand, but on rednand gives an icon of a grey box with ? inside, is there any way I can remove it off of redNAND homescreen?

    i'd say read the tutorial again, and then think over if you really need it.

    I dont need it, but i've tried it all for fun, for now most of us dont need it.
    If you want to test settings, modifications, hacks etc, you might want to do
    that on Rednand. Otherwise stick to the brazillian method. Good enough for most.

    Esepcially when you say "i have no idea what it even does"

    I would suggest, install the games what you want to play, and keep calm :D

    If you bought your SD card online from the likes of Amazon.com or eBay, then it is always a good idea to test them before using them, to insure that all the stated capacity is their.

    The very first thing I did. xD

    Also I have a question. My brother wants me to install Smash Bros using brazilian method. It has already been played from a disc so I'm unsure whether it is safe or not to do so, since isn't it dangerous to install something by brazilian method that already been played?

    Completely safe to do so. I played MK8 on disk then installed using Brazilian method without a problem. I do recommend you to back up your saves or DLC to a safe place. When I tried to install the DLC after the game, the game got deleted along with the save itself.

    I'd backup the save but saviine isn't user-friendly to me, no idea how to use it D:

    Generally you just run the batch script it comes with the Saviine before launching the game. You could make sure that the legit DLC and saves are on both USB and on sysnand, just make sure they both matches 1:1, so if it get deleted on one storage, then you have another storage you can resort too. Don't know if this will work or not. Saviine will work well for saves however not for DLC.
