    Hey everyone I have been having trouble running any .cia gba games. I downloaded the games so they are legit but the problem I am having is using FBI or anything like that to install the gba games in sysnand. I have spent several days trying to figure this out my 3ds is a regular new3ds with 9.1j firmware. Emunand such as gateway works perfectly fine but I cannot for the life of me figure out the .cia gba thing and it is driving me bonkers! Please help if you can. I would really appreciate it also let me know if you need any more info. :) I am using Ninjahax 2.5 for hbl and I have rxtools ready to go also I tried injecting the FBI installer onto my nand but no go on that telling me that health and safety info is missing.

    To play virtual console, the game needs to be on sysnand too
    Use RXTools to inject FBI into health and safety

    Rxtools is not compatible with GBA games on New 3DS.

    you can use emunand9 to inject FBI/BBM to H&S in sys/emunand. install the game to both nands.

    N3DS? Use Retroarch GPSP, dude. Runs GBA basically perfectly, and actually has proper emulation features. :)

    (Also 9.1j? why not 9.2j?)

    Is there a reason you don't want to install the patched agb_firm?

    I'd just get it from that iso site instead of trying to patch it yourself

    Can you explain this for me?
    I did use Retroarch GPSP on emuNAND 10.3 N3DS but most of the games still ran a bit slow. CIA version FYI. Is there a N3DS speedup option somewhere?

    Okay I got it to work and here is everything that I did I formatted my sd card and started from scratch. After formatting I updated my gateway Emunand to 10.4 and RX mode to 10.4. After that I went straight to the main source of the FBI installer and installed the latest version. After that I installed themehax again using my sky3ds card with cubic ninja. After all this I booted up the console and installed FBI.3dsx from the source installer version (1.4.1.7 or something like that pretty sure it was the most recent build of FBI). I than ran it in HBL and it gave me the signature is invalid. So I installed the agb firm file for new3ds and then after that I turned on my new3ds booted PastaCFW up and then I started the FBI.3dsx again once I was back to HBL using themehax and after all that I could install my .cia files to NAND. I am happy as a clam and playing some Megaman Battle Network 6. Thanks so much man you are awesome most of this was common sense but I never in a 100 years would have thought to boot into pasta cfw go back into hbl and boot into FBI that was pure genius my friend

    OOTNES2 is a genius he helped me ALOT via PM's and I appreciate his help as well as everyone else on here thanks so much guys lets get to playin! :)
