    System Format.

    Note that while this will not erase Luma or A9LH, it *will* erase any titles installed on SD, including FBI.

    That won't format it and wipe luma?

    System Format is a misnomer. It merely erases user data from NAND and the appropriate subdirectory in the "Nintendo 3DS" directory on the SD card.

    It will remove FBI and other installed titles, though.

    I would have to reinject FBI then through health and system correct?

    Yes - reinject FBI, install FBI normally, then undo the injected FBI.

    I'm pretty sure that if FBI is injected it will survive system formats.

    Yeah, it does. DevMenu installed to NAND also survives formats.

    Yes, injected FBI will remain even after format, but still instaling the standalone cia after formatting would be best, as its a newer version, and can update itself.

    Personaly i never remove the injected fbi after i'm done settiings things up, so the console always has a way of instaling cias.

    Let me guess why: Someone here charged extra 20$ for a hacked device?
