    Hello,

    I am trying to reinstall a GBA game after I deleted it, but FBI is giving me an error.

    Failed to install CIA file.
    Result code: 0xC8E083FC
    Level: Status (25)
    Summary: Invalid argument (7)
    Module: AM (32)
    Desc: Already exists (1020)

    I am using A9LH with Luma3DS 6.1.2

    Hmmm...

    Try checking if you have a ticket for it still installed, and if you do remove it...
    ...but I'm not betting on that being the cause, if anything it would be the title database that got screwed up...
    ...try reinstalling the game with fbi1/devmenu first?

    Have you checked the home menu after getting the error? The game should show up again.

    It's an injected GBA game. It's not on the eShop.

    Convert the GBA game yourself and put a random ID that your sure the rest don't have

    Yeah but your saying it didn't re-install after deletion , Make another one with a different ID that way the "already installed" error can't occur , try it first

    Well the thing is I have a save backed up, if I change the title id, i can't load the save on there.
