    I've recently installed a CIA game with BigBlueMenu and was wondering what method can be used to remove it, is there an easy way to remove the installed CIA to free some space? Currently running gateway 4.5 emunand 9.2.

    EDIT - Thanks for the suggestions guys I've now found a fix.

    Isn't the majority of CIA content stored on the regular SD card content?
    Can you delete it through the standard manager in the settings menu?

    Devmenu/bigbluebox let you delete, switch to the tab that shows installed software and press whichever button it says is the delete button

    Go into the Dev Menu and delete the title you want gone.

    In the first tab scroll until you find the games the game you want and press uninstall, i think it is the X button, if you
    want to erase everything just go to data managment and it will erase everything

    And if you don't want to erase everything, don't go to data management, because it will erase everything by just entering data management.

    It happens only on sysnand, and if your nand and your emunand are "linked".

    I've had a little look around but it looks like the all the games I'm installing are renamed and I'm unable to locate the rom?

    Just go to software management on the emunand and delete what you don't want anymore.

    I found a way to remove the cia :D you can boot each installed cia from the program tab in devmenu to identify it, also looks like they show up in the order you install them.

    Like other people have said, go to the dev menu and select it and delete it.

    You could compare the id of the game with a rom database

    I've solved this issue, you can load the installed cia file in devmenu to see what they are. Thanks for the advice guys

    If you go to 3ds.essh.co and type in the name of the game you downloaded into the search bar, You will see it's serial number. It's that easy

    Engine room, learning
    or the other way too, type the titleID you see in DevMenu to get the corresponding Game's title.
