    Hi I hacked a friend's 3DS XL. I downgraded to 9.2 and got coldboot to RXTools. When my friend try to install like say a theme with either FBI or BigBlueMenu it takes longer than usual to initiate the progress bar and when they try to install a game it'll come back with an error saying "This cia is invalid."
    What happen :( I've install the hacks on many systems and this is the first time something like that pops up.

    Ok nevermind. I google the problem.. Probably the SD card needs to be formatted again.

    also make sure you don't have a theme running, set it to no theme and try again

    This may sound silly, check to see if the SD Card is genuine as fake cards can cause this error...

    yes, if you bought your SD Card from eBay or used on Amazon, or really anywhere that's is not a reputable e-retailer it's possible it's fake.

    It turns out my friend downloaded a corrupted cia or it wasn't patched. Wish I could of been there to diagnose the probs but they followed my instructions and things are good.
