    Hi everyone, I am new to this so I apologize if this post goes against any rules.

    I will give a little introduction so you understand what the deal is. Basically I bought a pre modded 2dsxl with a bunch of games installed (because I thought I wouldn't be able to mod one myself). Now, I wanted to add a few more so went and looked for tutorials online. The thing is, the guy was trying to sell this as legit so he (I assume) deleted all traces of the modding as well as he could which includes all the apps you install when modding it the first time but he left the games which do work fine. So, I don't have the FBI or Homebrew launcher.
    I would like to know if anyone knows of a way of getting them back.

    Some other things that might be important in this situation: yes, I can open godmode9 and luma when booting the system but don't really know my way around them; I can also open Rosalina through download play; I think the sd card might be also missing some files when I open it on my PC.
    Thanks a lot in advance and, again, sorry if the post goes against any guidelines.

    no download play? download play is generally what's used with rosalina to open up the homebrew launcher. I'm not an expert at what to do if there's no download play though.

    Sorry, yes there is download play and I can open Rosalina but don't know how to go on from here. I will edit the original post, don't know why I wrote no download play there

    Just tried it, it does open homebrew and FBI but it didn't create the apps in the home menu

    to create the apps on the home menu, you have to install the cia. not worth it for most things, because you can only have 300 things installed at once.

    Ok I think I got it. So just use download play to open FBI instead of actually downloading the cia. again to install it?

    yes, you can download the cia as well and install it through fbi. that's what I did for easier access, but you should keep most homebrew in there if possible, if you plan on installing a lot of games.
