    Is there a CIA installer that will batch install multiple CIA's to specific folders? I set up my N3DSXL with many VC injects, and I created a folder for each system (SNES, Genesis, GBA, etc).

    I want to set up my wife's N3DSXL the same way, but I don't want to go through the hassle of installing many CIA's individually, and have to manually move icons to specific folders.

    Speaking of folders, how could change the folder icons ? I would like to say, have the SNES folder show an icon of a SNES system.

    Can you at least batch install CIA's?

    Also, I went to that badge link, but I am unable to download individual badges - only a set of badges.

    Yes you can batch install cia's, put them all in one folder, go to the folder in FBI, click current directory and then select install all CIAs

    Is there way for folders to have backgrounds when you select them like when you select a 3DS game?

    The best you can do with that is badges to put on top of the folder, as linked in the first reply to your topic.

    Thanks for the help. So far so good with some of the icons. Can I just use my own png's ? I am wanting one for PC Engine, and DSiWare.

    Yeah you can create your own badges. It's a bit annoying but possible.
