    I dumped a few Gamecart's via Decrypt9WIP, installed them via FBI, and only 1 installed the rest error out, i tried to re-dump them and FBI still didnt install them.

    i am on the latest System Version, and already have A9LH and Luma3DS. my 3DS is N3DS if that matters.

    any help would be nice. Thanks.

    Can't find the error documented anywhere. Wish i could be of more help.My only suggestion is try dumping with braindump and convert it to a cia, now that hax 2.8 has bypassed paslr. You might have also just done something wrong. Again not too sure. Sorry.

    If all else fails, find the CIAs elsewhere or use freeShop/CIAngel. The cart dump+install with FBI works for me. Try an older version of FBI.

    I'm currently using 2.4.2, as the older updates removed the Network Install feature (which I personally use).

    well if that's the one i need, FBI refuses to bring up the install command, since it's a CIA file.

    did i install something wrong when doing the DSIware downgrade?

    @Darksphere92 please check your Luma3ds settings (holding select when turning your 3ds on).
    Make sure that in "developer options" it's not set to "UNITINFO". This will make common CIAs to fail at installation time.

    also, u might try the xorpads method. I'm aware that xorpads r no longer needed, but that's how I converted my game carts. I have a tutorial on that at psx-place. I also have a tutorial on extracting and using saves. neither is difficult to do. oh, and none errored on me, so u might think about trying that if u've exhausted all other methods.

    i would do that, but i tried updating Luma3ds, by the Luma3ds updater, and i get a black screen, i am able to get pass the black screen, but once i turn my 3DS back off i have to bypass it again by replacing the luma files and arm9loaderhax.bin files, can someone help me fix the black screen issue first?

    edit: wth i boot into luma3DS fine without my Micro SD Card inserted, but when it's inserted i get a black screen.
