    Did you install the patched agb_firm ? Also, if yout nands are unlinked, you need to install gba games on both.

    if you are using gateway, i don't thik gba vc would work, it's just not supported.
    if you are using cfw, make sure the cfw has agb firm patched, if not, you have to patch it yourself (i'm using latest built of unofficial rxtools and it has agb firm patched automatically, i can't tell about other builds or cfws)
    then then last thing is it should be installed to sysnand. if you have your nand linked, you'll be able to run it in both nands after installing, but if you have separated nand, you have to install a gba vc to both nands if you want it to work on your emunand (or you can just install it to sysnand and run it from there)
    edit: kind of ninja'd
    and you can't install cia from gw redcart.

    i use fbi to install on o3ds and they work fine for me
    install them in systemnand to play them them there or install them to both systemnand and emunand to play from emunand
    also the following quotes are taken from a rxtools thread butt i think the answers are here
    and as for the "bonus question" the answer is "its not happening" sorry

    right . . . the only thing i see in the post you linked is info that says

    Missing features on n3ds:
    -DevMode
    -AGB and TWL patches
    -Initial configuration
    -Regionfree patch

    but you also said
    and im pretty sure that is what im saying

    ok so i know it says The patched AGB_FIRM is no longer needed but i have heard people who still have problems ask about this the recommendation ive seen get the best results is to install it anyway (but i am not sure if it is safe for you n3ds im sure you can find the answer to that with a quick look on google)

    how are they different?:unsure:

    it was a quote in which i quoted myself
    "please excuse me while i rant"
    but im sorry if not all info was relevent but thats the problem with people these days (myself included) they dont want to wait for / sort through / fight for / read through / ect. shit! unless its exactly what they asked for when they asked for it and even then the work involved seams so daunting we only sometimes start and rarely finish i mean . . . "no enough said end of rant"

    Because the agb_firm patch is included in rxtools, but only for O3DS currently.
