So, I decided I wanted to install Zelda Four Swords (Which I had but I lost it when I installed the GW). But I have to little memory, I used to have tons of DSiWare on my 3DS and had only 19 blocks left. None of these tiles can be found on the home menu (sysNAND) nor in the data management in settings. But I still only have 19 free blocks left. I tried formating sysNAND again but it doesn't work :(. Does anyone know how I can fix this?!

You should be able to redownload these games and convert them to valid cia's using funky cia 2 after dumping your sysnand ticket.db. (hopefully a these games will still be in the ticket.db). Then you can play them be reinstalling them to sysnand using PBT-CFW.

Other option is restoring an old backup nand using GW's nand restore before the problem arose. (if you made one o/c)
Definitely backup your current nand should that nand not be what you thought it would be.

A third option is cloning the sysnand to emunand, upgrading it to current fw, then seeing if you can redownload your titles. Make a backup of your system nand before as always.

The second option is your best bet it you have a backup nand.

Alright, I will try that. But problem isn't dumping my DSiWare (That won't be a problem as I do indeed have the ticket.db from my sysNAND from before GW/format) but how do I get the data of the 3DS because it's still there (as I only have 19 free blocks) but it cannot be seen by the 3DS and thus I won't be able to install any of the CIA's I made because there is not enough room -_-

Just see if they install first with devmen/pbt-cfw. If they won't overwrite you could possibly use fbi.cia or BigRedMenu to delete the ghost titles. (just make sure they're dsiware and not system titles) My guess is they'll overwrite the 'ghost' dsiware. Funky cia redownloads the titles from nus so it doesn't matter if they're on the 3ds or not.

Just run "python FunkyCIA2.py ticket.db -type dsiware -nodownload" to see what you have on the ticket.db then omit "-nodownload" if you want to go ahead and build the cia's.

Alright thanks a ton! I sadly don't have time right now to do all that, but I'll be sure to try it out later! (Pretty sure that what you said will work! I forgot that it might be able to override the ghost data which thinking back sounds like a logical thing for it to do)
